Watching velocity the other day

Shop in Salt Lake City (I think) chopped up a 50 burb to make a hot rod pick up


Couldn't find a video link to it

Looked like some good parts went into the dumpster

Yeah, some of us are aware that those hot rodders are the Devil incarnate.....right?

Just think of it this way Gus, every one that gets disemboweled
and chopped simply makes our original one worth that much more.
In my lifetime I've seen it happen to the model T's, then the
A's then it was the deuce and 34's. An original 39 or
40 Ford can command big bucks today as can any of the old
original tin.
Back when I was a teen all of that stuff was to be had for
scrap or a few hundred bucks if it was cherry. And it's not
just the ever so popular Ford, it's gone the same direction
with all the other makes and models.
In the last 10-15 years the Chevy AD has taken over as one of
the most affordable popular vehicles and it will have it's
run also, then the original ones that are left will become precious
iron. I'd venture a guess judging from what I see at car
shows, that right now about 80% or more go through some sort
of major modification that is irreversible.

Denny is right. In 1964, a kid in our high school had two daily driver 46 Ford coupes which he bought for $100. He had to take both, the seller wouldn't split up the pair.
My brother's 50 Buick was another $50 car.

In 1967 I bought a rough 39 Chevy coupe that ran for $25.00, and drove it home.

Those things were all over the place back in the 60s.
I want to tear out the rest of my hair when I remember how they were "just old cars", and none of us teens would ever consider owning one - they weren't "cool".

If only we could have predicted what their future value would be!! big_eek dang

I don't remember if the cost of the build was disclosed

My guess is it was over 80k

The owner really like the leather door panels with tooled artistry of his dogs and hunting .

I grew up in the 50's too Denny. Guys did all kinds of things with mostly old Fords. You could get them pretty cheap back then. My first car was a 47 Mercury coupe for $250, but that was a lot of money for a 18 year old kid. When I go to car shows, what always gets my attention are the ones that are generally stock and better yet the original paint. Getting rare though. Steve
