Well not really a barn. It was driven
into the corner of a heated shop in 1966, Veblen, SD. Put into a storage unit in Wahpeton last Nov. and the pics are in my driveway this afternoon. No, it's not the '40 Ford Coupe I've always thought someone would call me to come and get, but man, am I excited! I found out about it Monday night and today it's mine.
1935 Ford Tudor Slantback Sedan. Radio, South Window heater, extra guages, vacumm dash fan (never seen one before), and pretty complete. Rear view mirror with hole where the clock (I think) used to be. And check out the shift knob. The brakes (mechanical) still work even. Pretty straight, a couple small rust spots in rear fenders, one soft spot under drivers feet, roof leaked so headliner is shot, two roof bows are down from something stored on it, and the rest is what you see.
Plans are to get it running hopefully. It turns over with the crank. Depending on if/how it runs will determine where I go with it. I would love it if it ran pretty good, drop the front about 8 inches, some cheap wheels and tires (I better talk nicer to the "wheel/tire whore".), hopefully pressure wash the light grey repaint off (its dark grey underneath), a cheap interior (I know a guy), maybe some hydraulic brakes, and have some fun just putsing around with it. I'll probably be asking many questions. It's been a long time since I had any thing to do with a "Flatty". And then I was real young and just drove them. One I swore a lot at because it didn't run too well.
Here's some pics.......
