What is the T handle by the fire extinguisher?
Is that a B dissy?
What is the protrusion on the goose neck?
What is the wire and button on the stick?
The 35 wheels won't fit in the fender spot.
Electric starter?
I believe Weaver is the correct crane

Love the running board Spot. I have seen a caddy with two of them. I'd put one on my '39 peeekup. I'd face it backward so I could see whare I been at.

With a price like that, I'm thinking foreign bidders, that car will be shipped out of America, China, Russia, maybe middle East.

[QUOTE=rusty12;1578466]But not all cars sell high. This AACA winning 1928 coupe for 12,100.00 and a good looking 1929 phaeton at 16,500.00 both seem like a good deal:

I thought those two were on the money, the Sport Coupe looks to be a pretty nice little Model A. Well bought at 12 grand.

This looks like one of the Volo Auto Museum's builds. They take a lot of RPUs and "restore" them as wreckers, oil tankers and fire trucks. Many are sold overseas, and the prices are pretty high. I've been there, and would prefer the pre-restored ones.

Yep, I used to have them on my roadster pickup. Saw that one quick.

Nicely done restore on the truck, but that paint, it's the ugliest thing I have seen.

Next stop, the paint shop!
