Default Interesting old car remnants

I've recently moved, there is a wooded area next to my property. Found this 100 feet away from my house. Anyone know what it is?

it is a perfect..


In case you haven't heard about them - perfects are a perfect beginning of project that will take a few years or so to complete. They tend to start small and end up being an all consuming task that deprives you of sleep and what little money you may have.


You are in big trouble because the perfect is right next door and will soon begin talking to you. You'll find that you can't sleep until perfect is in your garage and your either working on it or searching the web for parts. If you try to ignore perfect your life will be horrible and the ghosts of good times past will haunt you.

Yard art! I always wanted just a coupe body, with NO COWL, for my front yard! Gregg, my Son, (RIP) could sit in it & drink STRONG COFFEE! LOL BUT, Gregg passed away & foiled our FUN TIMES.

Could be Dodge, I don't know, but if Dodge, it has to be earlier than my 27 Dodge body parts. My 27 cowl has very distintive things on it to check for. Holes around the hood welting area for the wiring harness, a mount for the oil can by the steering column, etc. But it also has a cowl mounted air vent flap. Yours does not have that. This would be a great "T" Bucket type hot rod starting point.

Probably took it off and saw there was something they didn't want to mess with, and just abandoned it.

Brand should be on the radiator shell. Possibly on block, head or firewall.
