I'm just glad you rescued it from that muddy boghole it was stored in.

Nice find! About the same condition as my first 34 Ford back in 1972. Your guess about the $25 -$50 is selective memory. I paid $475 and got it running the day I towed it home.
I did a backyard restoration and kept it 26 years. I hope you can enjoy it as much.

I was not around back then, just a guess in terms of price for clapped out ol Fords back when.

Very nice car. It looks great in your yard. I have two Fords and though I had enough. Now I see yours and want one of them too!

For reference, I paid $250 for a 1940 Buick Special in 1973. It was a very complete CA car with minimal rust. After I took it apart and played with it until I went to college, I sold it for $400. I think I was lucky to get that price though, once they are taken apart they lose value big time.

I saw the car listed on Craigslist and thought about looking at it my self but just have too many projects going. I noticed in the there is a double rear bumper.

Good luck with the car. It looks pretty solid.
