Back Yard Galaxie, Cougar, Super 8

Posted in Junk Yard Finds | 4 Comments »

super-8-3Back yard or junk yard?

It's hard to tell if this is a back yard or junk yard. Over the years this guy has put together a pretty good classic car collection that's now rusting away in his yard.  He seems to be mostly a Ford guy, but also has some Mercury's and Cadillacs to round out the collection.

1966 Corvette

1966-corvette-convertible-031966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

Here's a cool little project that's been sitting in a North Carolina field. It's a 1966 Corvette convertible that someone started to do a resto-mod on. It's got a T10 four speed and Chevy 10 bolt rear end, but no motor. Interior is totally trashed (missing actually) and not sure what's going on with that left front tire. Maybe it's just the tire missing, but I don't see any spindle there either. As if there wasn't enough work to do on this car! Read the rest of this entry »

1969-torino-428-cj-11969 Ford Torino 428 Cobra Jet + Ram Air

This is a true "R" code Cobra Jet Torino. And to sweeten the deal, the famous 428-4V was topped with factory RAM air and backed up by a 4 speed. All numbers match, engine block and carburetor. Engine wasn't running at the time of these photos, but it wasn't seized and turned over fine. Read the rest of this entry »

1946-ford-sedan-01946 Ford Sedan - Hot Rod Project Car

OK, this isn't a Muscle Car, but it's too cool to not post up the pics. Not much info on this one, but just close your eyes and imagine what kind of ride you could create with this cool little Sedan.

A bit of rust and a trashed interior, but really the body panels aren't too bad. This would be a fun project for sure. Read the rest of this entry »

Wander through the back woods of West Virginia long enough and you might stumble upon this junk yard in the trees. Looks like there are a few other Musclecars tucked in there too. Looks like a Cougar behind it and a Challenger or Charger maybe? Read the rest of this entry »

1965-gto-31965 Pontiac GTO

This would be a sweet little project Goat. It's a 1965 GTO and has obviously been sitting, but really looks worse then it is. The rust is there and would need to be dealt with, but if the price was right it could be worth dealing with the cancer.

1963 Corvette Split Window

Yet another fire damaged Corvette. Those fiberglass bodies sure disintegrate in a hurry when they catch on fire. The source on both cars was the same, so you wonder if they were both torched in the same fire? Pretty expensive fire. Read the rest of this entry »

1963 Nova SS

63-chevy-nova-01963 Chevy Nova SS Coupe

This cool little Nova SS has probably been someone's neglected project for some time. At least it hasn't been sitting in a field or a barn, but there's still quite a bit of rust to deal with. It's a 6 cylinder, but at least it runs! Read the rest of this entry »

1954 Corvette

Here's a project to get you drooling; a nice little '54 Vette chassis that looks to be mostly unmolested. The floor was hacked up a bit where someone tried to install a 4 speed, but nothing that can't be fixed. Now, locating a correct motor & transmission might be harder. Read the rest of this entry »

1970 Challenger R/T

70-dodge-challenger-rt11970 Dodge Challenger R/T

Here's a numbers matching 383 car with a slap stick automatic transmission. The original Plum Crazy purple exterior paint has been replaced by a wonderfully blah cream color at some point. Or maybe that's just really old and faded primer on a half-assed past restoration attempt. Read the rest of this entry »
