Reminds me of Da Yoopers “Rusty Chevrolet”.
When I started a major remodeling project on my house, I bought an old beater 1967 International pickup for $300.
The radio didn’t work, the parking brake was whimsical, the lighting system worked only in the daytime, the master cylinder leaked, and the worn kingpin bushings made driving down a narrow street an adventure. But that beast could literally pull the porch off a house.
Gawd, I loved that truck!
Pluggers can enjoy the Top Ten, because they don’t remember them from earlier in the year.
Back in ’62, we bought a ’51 Chevy for $50, the insurance was $100. It ran for 6 months, but that was our first car. Wish it could have lasted a bit longer though.
Still drive a 1971 VW bus. Bought it in 2000. Didn’t have a radio. Still doesn’t.
Offering $850 provided there are new inner tubes in the tires … Atlas is 1985 of later … John Wayne bobblehead optional.
Crank windows and a five-speed transmission — it’s a piece of exercise equipment.
That one’s a late 60’s or early 70’s F150.
Try using Bring A Trailer auction…
…Atlas comes with at least 48 states.
My first car (‘57 Beetle) didn’t have a radio, so I took out the ashtray and stuck an FM portable in the space. Someone broke into the car and the only thing they took was the radio. I suspect they may have been disappointed as the tuner was broken and all it could get was the local classical music station.
With toolbox behind the cab on the truck bed?
You’re all set for a trip to California!
I’d have to add FM to the radio. I doubt there’s any music on the AM around here. If there’s talking, I’m walking…
