I will be moving it down to Mom's farm in early June. Do you think that I some good trading stock here? Or it'll just make an interesting garage sale or estate auction someday?

For $300 I think you did well. Aren't finned brake drums hard to find?

Good ones are. A lot of drums don't have enough left to clean up safely. I hope you got some shiny bits in that stash.

I'd be curious to know what Mom thinks? :)

Get it cataloged and post it. I'm in KC and could easily drive 3 hours to pick up hard to find parts if needed.

I actually looked at the ad, but I have no place to store anything along that quantity of stuff.

Congratulations!

Even if those truck drums are too thin, and considered junk, the hubs are worth saving for those who want to do the Chevy drum conversion.

They also make good musical instruments.

Hang all the drums together, in near proximity to each other on cables or wires about 2-3 feet long and have a "new" set of redneck windchimes!

The previous owner was spry 70 year old guy. He runs a restro shop with five cars in progress it and half a wall of unbuilt plastic car models still in their boxes and wraps. He use to be on a professional racing team years ago. He claims that somebody from Wisconsin claiming to be "biggest Studebaker dealer around" phoned about his going to buy this, but never got around to sending the check.

Anyway, I got two V8 cranks, two or three sets of new pistons in boxes, one and a half manifolds for the Commander six, three 232 intake manifolds, two WW manifolds that I think could be machined for WCFBs or AFBs, five or six V8 heads, a 259 block that needs boiled and ridged and honed, three or four pairs of those four-lug Champion hubs and drums, oodles of Warner brake cylinder rebuild kits, an aluminum SBC bell-housing with mystery adaptor, and three Sears under-dash AC units. Plus a ton of other stuff I still have to go through.

Are the crankshafts NOS, or used? Can your provide cast numbers of them? Also, the new pistons, what do they fit and what size? Any of the brake drums NOS, or are they all used?

Pick out a trailer full of goodies and bring them to the Zone Meet in Wisconsin in August..... OR post an ad and have people pay for the parts before you haul them over there. I am still looking for some (as yet unknown) truck parts for my latest project.

As Duane says, bring a load of those parts to the Zone meet in Brookfield Wisconsin, August 23rd thru 26th. Send in your registration that is in Turning Wheels, and reserve either an outdoor or indoor swap space. This is going to be a very good meet with lots of folks coming from all over the zone. Hope to see you there, Bill.
