Picking up Car, setting/parked sense 1982, all tires flat, aired up (still holding air after two days ) and released parking brake, next out of gear and it rolled.

Bruce, WOW that is amazing. Nothing that sweet ever shows up here in Illinois. I'm jealous! You have a very nice car there.

Nice looking car. I would bet you would have gone thorough a blizzard to get it if you had to.

Last owner purchased(father) in 1960 and passed away, one son inherited and drove until 82 or so, it was parked in a barn on property and then barn torn down, moved to garage, stored there until I looked at several years ago. Next son inherited from brother's estate and that is all I know.

Now that's a beautiful find!! I love seeing these old Fords being found and put back on the road. No restoration needed on that one. Get it mechanically sound, cleaned up cosmetically and drive it!!

115 pounds of Wolf ( German Shepard ) he would not hurt a fly, his running mate liked to bite ( nip ) Dave on the back of leg "calf", she would go around car and sneak up on you, in dog heaven now.

Great find. Clean it up, check it out mechanically then drive the wheels off of it.

Going through a car like that, that's new to you, is like being on a treasure hunt. When I was a kid, I always liked going through the cars when they first arrived at the local junk yard. Usually found something worth keeping.
