View Full Version : Trail Ride Finds

Exploring the new neighborhood on horseback has some rewards...sort of. Yesterday, I found two huge paper hornets nests. One up high, and one down low. (Just last week a guy found an incredibly huge one and crated it up. I saw it at the tire place as he was getting ready to ship it to a collector in Canada. Sold it for $3500![:0].. Also flushed a big doe from the treeline. Startled me more than the horses.
And I found two abandoned cars of interest. I walked out and took pic's of the one today. When I saw it, I couldn't tell what kind of car it was, let alone tell it was a wagon. It's that far in the brush...
Anyways, turns out it is a Rambler wagon. Upside down. The spindles and brakes are gone, as is the engine and trans. The driveshaft and diff are there. The chrome and trim are all there, but some is morked. Some of the pot metal pieces looked pretty good.
Anyways, here are some pic's just for grins...

Nice yard art there Jeff. [8D] Drag it out and put it in your front yard so people can find you house. :D

So, what was the other car?

Great find, Jeff. I also found some cars in the woods last summer. Can anyone guess what the second car is? And yes, there is a car in there!

Is it a Studebaker? If so, I'll say a '53-'55 sedan. [8]

Well, close but no cigar! Here is a hint...It does have some Studebaker heritage. I think Barney Roos who at one time worked for Studebaker had something to do with the design and engineering.

Hm... The rear door favors a '55 Nash.

Barney Roos is the man mostly responsible for the prewar Presidents. [:0][:p][8D]

I was busy dragging out my hornet's nest and now just saw Leonard's post. My guess was a Hillman Minx, the fellow I bought my '63 E-28 from had one. It would have been a great car except a tree limb had broken the back window and let water in.

Hey Gary, if you still want that 63 Lark I just posted, you can have it. I don't think Tom is ever going to get it. You might have to cut some trees to get it out, though. Who knows, you might find another hornets nest in it! Here is a picture of the interior and engine.

I think I have a couple of trim pieces for a Hillman around here. I know I have a horn button or two from them.

Matthew said:"Barney Roos is the man mostly responsible for the prewar Presidents."

Matthew, are you sayin' Barney was Herbert Hoover's campaign manager???[:0]

Leonard, I'd take the body tag from that car.;)

Incredible story, Bob![:0][xx(] I think that fella has a slight edge on you as far as the eccentric part goes. Of course, it's thanks to you that I have my own little container of Studebaker Foundry sand, so maybe his edge isn't TOO large! (BTW, I'm ever grateful for that sand. I'd like to know where it originated when supplied to Studebaker)

IF that Rammer was a V8 - and IF it still had it's driveshaft intact inside that torque tube - it would be worth dragging home and a run on ebay! If it's the 6 cylinder variety, don't bother.
Not surprizing that the suspension trunnions are gone. Those are a literal stumbling point for 50s-60s Rammers.[V] Unless some have been repro'd of late, they WERE getting to be pretty darned rare last I dabbled in Rammer parts.[B)]

Exploring the new neighborhood on horseback has some rewards...sort of. And I found two abandoned cars of interest. I walked out and took pic's of the one today. When I saw it, I couldn't tell what kind of car it was, let alone tell it was a wagon. It's that far in the brush...
Anyways, turns out it is a Rambler wagon. Upside down. The spindles and brakes are gone, as is the engine and trans. The driveshaft and diff are there. The chrome and trim are all there, but some is morked. Some of the pot metal pieces looked pretty good.
Anyways, here are some pic's just for grins...

:) Jeff: That's a 1959 Rambler Custom Six Cross Country. If it was the cheaper Super[xx(], it wouldn't have the 2-tone spear on the side. If it was a Rebel V-8[:p], it would have a V-8 emblem on the fender area in front of the front wheel. ;)

Ironic that an eccentric here in Brownsburg (yes, there are two of us![}:)]) inherited an identical car from a grandfather maybe 30 years ago. It was a nice car, pink with black roof and black side spear, running and driving.

He paid $1 per day to store it in a fenced gravel lot behind a gas station here in town. It stayed there untouched, uncared-for, and unused for so many years (20? 25?) that it finally deteriorated and rusted down to zip and was towed away! :( I know the guy that owns the gas station; the Rambler's owner had honestly paid thousands of dollars in daily storage [:0] by the time it left, just to let it sit there and rot!

Thanks for the info Bob.
It's always nice to know what they are.
The next door neighbor at my parents house had a Rambler wagon like that.
First time I ever rode in a car that had overdrive.
I was about 10 at the time...

Nice yard art there Jeff. [8D] Drag it out and put it in your front yard so people can find you house. :D
So, what was the other car?
