RARE 1929 Ford Model A "Woody" Station Wagon. This new body style for 1929 was the very first mass-produced Station Wagon ever offered to the public, and is offically recognized as the very first "Woody Wagon" made. The popular style would be made by various car manufacturers for decades to come, and has become a true American icon today. Of the 1,715,000 Ford Model A's produced in 1929, only 4,954 were Station Wagons, making the 1929 "Woody" a very rare and sought after collector car. Due to the wood construction of these cars, even fewer examples survive today. This '29 Wagon is in beautiful condition, showing an expertly done older restoration, and is in perfect running and driving order. Stunning Maple and Birch body is wonderful condition, and still retains it's original Murray Body Co. tag. This was the Detroit based company contracted to build the wood bodies for Ford's new station wagon. Nicely painted tan cowl and hood, with black fenders and red Model A wire wheels mounted to correct, reproduction 'A bias tires. The paint looks great, with only one light scuff on the driver's front fender. Original dash with working gauges and original steering wheel. Wood floor construction is perfect, and this Model A Wagon has the very rare "fourth" rear seat still intact. These were almost always lost to make room for hauling goods or luggage. The rear and center two seats are in excellent shape, while the front seat only has a few small tears on the driver's side. The rebuilt original 4cyl engine runs perfect, and is correct down to it's Zenith carburetor. Transmission shifts great, and brakes stop just as they should. This car can be driven anywhere with confidence. A chance to own one of the rarest and most iconic of American cars. A truly charming and beautiful example.
1958 Chrysler Fire Power Hemi 392ci, complete carb to pan. Original Chrysler New Yorker 345hp 4bbl engine. Engine is stuck from sitting but should free up for a rebuild. Complete 392's are getting very tough to come by. Chrysler Fire Power 331ci Alcohol Drag engine from "The Stagecoach", Original 331 block with 392 heads run in "The Stagecoach" wheelstander from the late 60's/early 70's. This engine hung backwards over the rear axle of the dragster, and features a massive oil pan fabricated using a original 392 drag pan, combined with a very deep front sump. Chrome Fire Power valve covers are in great shape with vent/oil filler tubes, and were fitted with Offenhauser breathers on the back side of the covers (not present, but drilled for them). Comes complete but is apart and will need to be rebuilt. A very serious engine with some great NHRA history. RARE Vintage Fairbanks 727 Torqflite Drag Automatic from "The Stagecoach", Complete with the original aluminum Hemi adaptor (for Chrysler Fire Power), Fairbanks drag torque convertor, flexplate, and short driveshaft. This is the original transmission to "The Stagecoach" and ran with the alcohol 331ci. Appears to be in very good condition, and may be ok to run as is, though some form of a rebuild should be expected. Hooker 'Keith Black' 426 Hemi Top Fuel Dragster Zoomies, Very rare, ca. late 60's/early 70's. In good condition overall, with a dent in one tube, and a small hole in another which can be easily patched (either from a censor installed, or more likely a engine explosion). Clearly marked with the Hooker Headers Heart logo on both. RARE

Patrick Bros. "IN-BOMBER" 1957 Chevrolet 210 Hardtop
1968 NHRA Nationals H/Stock Class Champion
TOO MUCH TO LIST! This car was the H/Stock Class Champion at the 1968 NHRA Indy Nationals. There are many "record holders" out there, but there are few Indy winning cars left today. This is the only restored example in the world of an NHRA National winning '57 Chevy Jr. Stocker. The car is a rare 210 2dr Hardtop (not Sedan!), and is fully documented from A-Z. It has been fully restored to "as raced" appearance. The car was campaigned by the Patrick Bros and Ken Nelson out of Omaha, Nebraska, between 1966-1970, and has competed in the 1968 & 1969 NHRA Winternationals in Pomona Ca, the 1969 NHRA Springnationals in Dallas, TX, and the 1968 & 1969 NHRA Nationals at Indy. The car was the 1968 Nationals H/Stock Class Champion and Stock Eliminator Semi Finalist, two-time winner of the NHRA "King of The Hill" competition, and was featured or mentioned in several magazines of the time. Originally powered by a 283ci/283hp Rochester Fuel Injected engine, the car was given the name "In-Bomber", as a play on words with "Embalmer", keeping the injected theme with a zombie hand on the door squirting a syringe. The car was later run with dual quads, which the car currently has. All the body panels on this car are the original units, the frame is a one-piece "California" frame, original P-Case 4:56 Posi rear with Tension Team ladder bars, original chrome revserse wheels, NOS Firestone and Mickey Thompson racing tires, original Stahl fenderwell headers (from the sister car "Good In-Tension"), 425+HP stroked & bored 283 with Borg Warner 4spd, all new interior, etc etc.... TOO MUCH TO LIST.

Complete and original 1956 Ford Thunderbird, with scarce P-Code 312 4bbl "Thunderbird Special" V8 and rare factory power seat. Most 56's out there are 292ci cars, and the power seat was rarely ordered. This car was pulled out of a barn in eastern New York two years ago just the way you see it, and has been at our shop since. The car looks to have been a mild hot rod in it's time. Original 312 engine is absolutely complete, with a Holley 4bbl carburetor, original finned aluminum Thunderbird valve covers, and factory exhaust manifolds. It's condition is not known, we have made no attempt to run it. The transmission is a 3spd manual with a period Hurst shifter. Original rear end and suspension is complete. The glass is all original and intact (including the door glass, which is rolled down). There are two tiny little chips in the windshield, but no cracks. Original dashboard is in nice condition and complete, door panels are present, and the seat is in surprisingly very nice shape for being original. No rips or tears! The factory tracks, motor, and piston are all there. The frame and body mounts are excellent, with only minimal surface rust. The trunk is also excellent, with only a few tiny little holes about 1" around. Overal it is clean and sound. The car will need all new floors. The front pans are rusted out, and there is some rust behind/under the seat. The outer rocker panels are solid, inners have some rust. Overall the body is fairly solid, the worst panel being the driver's side door, which will need a new lower skin. Original hood and scoop. Someone deleted the continental kit, which was standard for '56 (though it looks better without it in my opinion), and there are no tops with the car. What you see is what you get. This would make an awesome hot rod or gasser project! It's getting tough to find complete and original, early Thunderbirds like this, and the car's options make it scarce. No title, car is sold on bill of sale. RARE 1963 DX Gas & Oil 9-Foot Porcelain Metal Sign, single sided, dated at the bottom. This sign would have originally been mounted on a large iron pole in front of a gas station. It measures approx. 67 1/4" tall, and 116 1/2" wide. This is the same sign that can be seen in the begining of the movie "The Outsiders", and at the end of the dragstrip in "Two Lane Blacktop". Condition is overall very good, with only minor chips here and there, and some slight discoloration and scuffs around the edge. These large DX signs are becoming very scarce! Vintage Nostalgic Hand Painted "Rackley's Auto Sales" Three-Piece Wood Sign with Metal Bracket, ca. 1950's/1960's. What a great look this sign has. The three-piece shield is hand painted wood, double sided, and measures approx. 35 1/2" tall, and 35" wide. It swings from a wonderful early, metal wall mount bracket. As far as we can tell, Rackley's was a used car dealer out of Maine. A unique, nostalgic shop sign that would look great hanging in any garage! Rare 1930 Mobilgas Special "Pegasus" Porcelain Metal Gas Station/Pump Sign, 11 1/2" tall, 11 5/8" wide. A great looking, early sign for your shop or garage. One sided porcelain metal sign, dated 1930, with four mounting holes. Condition is weathered with chips and some rust, but a great old time look for the money. RARE 1956 Esso D-Frost Gas Station Banner, 83" tall, and 35 1/2" wide. Made of a durable cloth material with wood on the top and bottom. Great graphics with lots of eye appeal. Condition is overall very good with no rips or tears and strong colors. There is slight staining along the left side from about midway down. A great looking and unusual Esso gas station advertisement! Excellent 1964 Gulf Oil & Gas 6-Foot Porcelain Metal Sign, single sided and dated, measuring over 6 feet at 72 1/4" tall by 78 1/4" wide. This would have been mounted up high on an iron pole in front of a gas station. Overall the condition is excellent, with only a few tiny blemishes that just show it's age. The color and luster is great though. It's hard to find large porcelain Gulf signs in this condition! RARE 1963 Grace-Brite Firestone Gas Station Sign in NOS Condition, single sided wall mount, dated at bottom. Measuring approx. 6 feet tall and 13" wide, this is one of the more scarce and unusual Firestone signs of the era. It was made by the Grace Sign & Mfg. Co, and is more of a copper color then the traditional Firestone red. The condition overall is excellent, and the sign looks to have never been used. Only minor handling scuffs on a few edges that show it's age. A really impressive and unusual looking sign!
"LOST" BELLY TANK RACER
TRUE AUTOMOTIVE FOLK ART
Offered for sale for the first time since it's creation, this is an incredible piece of nostalgic automotive folk art, and a true masterpiece from noted artist Randy Regier. This car was built by Randy as his college thesis project, and is just one of two "full scale" pieces he has constructed. It took him over a year to build, and parts from across the globe were used to make the car as accurate to the period and theme as possible. The car was built to coincide with a historically accurate but fictional story of Anna Isaak, who built the car during WWII with dreams of racing it on the dirt tracks of the Midwest, but never completed the car, leaving it "hidden" in a secret room in an old mill. As Randy's project, the car was unveiled for the first time in Isaak's hidden room, and was only visible in a small hole punched through a wall of the mill. It was then shown at several Northeastern galleries by Regier, before he sold it to a collector in Maine. The car was actually lost at this point, not to resurface until just this past winter. It stands as one of the most prominent works by Randy Regier, and is an impressive and strking piece of art that would be the focal point of any car collection. It has been appraised by the artist and Jim Kempner Galleries in New York at $40,000++. The chassis is constructed from a shortened and narrowed 1920's touring car frame, with Ford front and rear axles. The body is an original WWII vintage aircraft drop tank modified to fit, and the car is powered by a 1947 Graymarine 112HP Flathead straight six with dual carbs. The car features a forward & reverse shifter, rear hand brakes, Stewart Warner gauges, aluminum windshield (with screen for left hand racing), and 19" & 22" wheels. Full documentation from Randy Regier is included explaining in detail the theme and process of building the car, as well as gallery information from where it has been shown. The great thing about this car is that it makes a statement just the way it sits as a piece of static art, but it is a complete car that could easily be made road or race worthy. There is nothing like this out there, and it makes an impression on everyone who sees it in person.

1970 Plymouth Barracuda Gran Coupe
23K Miles with Original Paint!
1970 Plymouth Barracuda Gran Coupe real "Barn Find", untouched with low 23,000 original miles and original paint! This car has been sitting in a barn for over 25 years, and is exactly as it was found. We lightly cleaned it, but will leave it up to the new owner as to what direction to take the car. It is one of 8,183
It is one of 8,183 Barracuda Gran Coupes built in 1970, the lowest production of the three Cuda models. This was the luxury oriented Barracuda, and came with Deluxe trim and possibilities for many options. This car is one of only 170 cars equipped with the 230hp 318ci and 3 spd manual floor shift, and further broken down with the colors and options it is one of very few. The car was ordered in Deep Burnt Orange Metallic with Burnt Orange interior, premium trim, vinyl bucket seats, console, overhead consolette, heavy duty drum brakes, and heavy duty stamped steel wheels (now with Cragar wheels added in the 70's). It was finished January 8th, 1970. The original owner brought the car back to the dealership in the early 70's and had the Rally hood and pin kit added, along with the V21 performance hood treatment stripes. We do have the original hood, still painted in Burnt Orange Metallic. The body is in very good shape overall, with only minor rust down low behind the rear wheels, and a little around the wheel molding. The paint is original, factory paint and looks amazing. There are light scratches and scuffs and a few flaked spots, but overall it cleans up very nice for 43 year old paint. The black hood stripes have faded to gray. The rockers are solid, and there are no dents or bondo anywhere. This car has never been hit or restored. The driver's side floor pan will need to be patched, but the rest of the floor is solid. The trunk has an old fiberglass patch panel in the center pan, but the corners and edges where the trunk meets the body are solid and original. Just a few small holes have come through. The original jack is even still in place! The chassis underneath is solid overall, with just a little rust in the ends of the front torque boxes. We believe the engine to be original, and it will probably run with little effort. It does turn by hand, and looks complete, it's just been sitting for a very long time. The engine appears stock, except for a set of headers added. Inside the original Burnt Orange interior is intact, with the original wood grain steering wheel and upper/lower consoles. A vintage Hurst shifter was added long ago. The driver's seat has a tear, but the passenger and rear seats are in very nice shape. The dash is intact and complete, with the exception of an aftermarket radio. The windshield has a small crack near the roofline, from where a piece of the barn fell and hit the trim. Otherwise, all the glass is in good shape, and all is factory Chrysler glass. Original fender tag, dash vin tag, and door vin tags are intact. No title, sold on a bill of sale. This is a rare opportunity to own a true low mileage barn find Barracuda that is untouched and original. The options and colors make it a very unusual car, and certainly a fine addition to any classic car collection
RARE 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon Futura V8 Sprint
BARN FIND GASSER!
RARE 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon Futura V8 Sprint Hardtop Barn Find Gasser with 1969 Shelby Mustang Wheels, Extra Set of Scarce Revolution Racing Wheels, and High Performance 351W & C6 Transmission. This car was brought back to Connecticut over 10 years ago from Washington state and has been stored away since. It was said to have been a very fast street/strip car in it's day. The 1963 1/2 Falcon Futura Sprint was the very first Falcon to feature Ford's new 260ci V8, and only 10,479 of these were produced in the second half of 1963. This is the very car that the 1964 1/2 Mustang was based off. The 63's are arguably the best looking year as well, with their fastback design mimicking the larger '63 Galaxies. The car is very solid throughout, with only a little rust in the typical spot under the driver's feet. The rocker panels are solid, as well as the underside of the doors. The trunk is also excellent with no rust to speak of. Underneath is clean with good subrails and mounts. The rear wheel wells were radiused and flared slightly, and some filler appears to have been used here. The car was fitted with a 9 inch rear end long ago. The original headers and Hurst shifter the car ran are included, still in the trunk where we found them. The interior is in good shape overall, with a clean and complete dashboard, good door panels, and the rear seat is nice. The original headliner is even intact. The front seats are old metal flake and white vinyl gasser seats that are in very good shape as well (not bolted in). Old racing steering wheel and gauges are there, as well as the desirable factory center console. All the glass is original and intact, no cracks. The paint is old lacquer from the 60's/70's and has chips and touch ups but looks cool if you're going after that old hot rod patina look. All the trim and chrome is there and looks good. There is one small dent on the passenger's rear quarter under the belt moulding. The car is currently sitting on rare original 1969/70 Shelby Mustang wheels. They are all in very good condition and are quite valuable in themselves. Also included are a rare set of English made Revolution Wheels (15x8" front, 15x10" rear). These wheels are very rare to see in any American 5 lug pattern. They were on the car when we found it, however they seemed to rub a little in the front so we put the Shelby wheels on. The original vin number is stamped on the inner driver's side front fender and identifies the car as a 1963 Falcon Futura Hardtop, V8 260ci car. The driver's side door looks to have been replaced very long ago, and accordingly the door data tag does not match. Also included with the car is a late model 351 Windsor that has Hi-Po heads installed, a mild racing cam (low end torque), and aluminum 4 bbl intake. The engine probably has 70K miles and ran very strong with plenty of power. It's bolted to a rebuilt C6 auto that has only about 10K miles. It would certainly be a nice drop in package for this car. The car is sold on a Connecticut bill of sale only, there is no title. If you're state requires a title, you will need to go through one of the various classic car titling companies that are out there. We will not be held responsible for providing you with a title. Overall this is a very solid and complete car that would be easy to finish off and put back on the street. The 63 1/2 Falcon Sprints are pretty scarce and unusual, making this a fun and worthwhile hot rod/gasser project!
