I went out to get some stuff for my '55 from a guy on Craigslist. His stash is amazing! He had Barret quality cars - about 40 in 3 buildings! Plus a barn full of mostly tri-fives and Impalas. Along with that he had several Ford convertibles from '32 to the '50s. If anyone wants a nice 2-door late '50s ranch wagon, he wants to sell that one. Nice older custom paint (with Mitch Kim graphics). The cars were stashed all over....I am looking at the Pos A Tractions for my '55. I need wider tires...
He has a real 409/409 4-gear '62 Convertible - BLACK!!!!!
4 or so Woodys - most were Fords.
His '55 was the one in the front of the Portland Roadster Show - kinda burnt orange and cream with a 600hp BBC and a 6-speed. He said it's his wife June's car. Nice one.
I can't even remember all the stuff he had. It was like a dream, everywhere you looked there were rare parts. Muncies stacked on the shelves, carbs, tires (from bias to the original BFG radials - tons of 'em), accessory parts, fenders, hoods, glass......
I found a set of almost new N-50s that I will pick up to see how they look on the '55. They'll surely stick out a bit, but I think I'll jack it up instead of cutting the wells.
Makes my junk look like junk.
