Default Ford Roadster Barn Find

Got home today from work and had an old friend leave a message saying her father had an old car in the barn he wanted to get rid of. Gave her a call and well, off again with my brother for more old iron! It's a 30 ford roadster convertible. Everything was there, just has to gather it up in the barn and head to the house for the title. This older gentleman just turned 90. Could imagine the stories and good times he had with this. Especially with the camouflage paint scheme. Gotta another headache here, but a mild one. Lol

Got it loaded. Rolled and steered fine. Tires even held air! I even stumbled on a flathead v8 60 in the corner i had to bring home! 😎

You seem to have the touch for finding the neatest old vehicles, right place at the right time cannot hurt.

Good luck with this project.

Some guys have ALL the luck! The last "antique Ford car" in a barn that I went to look at turned out to be a Ford Taurus......

Seriously, that's a great find. PLEASE don't let it get to the "rat rod" crowd!

Great find. Bring her back to life. Original is best, it preserves the history.
