      Re: Treasures in the Junk Yard

      The effin' yards around here all sold out and cashed in when scrap metal prices were high. I called around and several even told me they don't even have anything older than a 2000 model year. Ugh.

        '57 Buick Special, 364 with a standard shift. I found this a few years ago in a junkyard and kept thinking about it every so often. Finally I couldn't stand it and it came home with me a few months ago. Thinking future frame swap project or late model drivetrain swap?

              Nice find. If I had the place to store potential projects I would have a yard full just to save them from the crusher.

                BE MY HERO, SAVE THE SWAY BAR SET AND CALIPER BRACKETS OF THAT LINCOLN!!! ;D :o ;D

                Dude, serious, want to make money? Pull the caliper brackets on full size fords and lincolns. If you see any 1972 Torinos, SNAG THE SPINDLES. Guys who want to do the police conversion for 72-76 with the 12" rotors need those brackets.

                If that rear sway bar can come off and you get the axle brackets, those are usually worth $100 easy on ebay.

                  the adapters on the pontiac are from generic knock off wire wheels. white paint on one side, the other side should be red.

                  buy those adapters new for 20 bucks each...

                    We've got some good yards around here. I've scored rust-free, dent-free doors, inner fenders and a pair of driver's side fenders for my '62 Suburban. Last year I scored a pair of perfect 45-finned aluminum drums for $11, a '60s Ford truck hoodscoop that were used on Pontiac Super Stock Catalinas and gassers in the day for $15, a pair of '58 Ford wagon 9-inch rears for $125 each (one on an amazingly rust-free car, and it still had the safety washers on the studs and like-new drums). Last week I got another 45-fin drum for $8 at Pull-a-part, to complete a pair.

                    The local yard also has a BUNCH of FE engines in pick-ups, including one with a 4bbl intake on it. I think I'm going to pull one and build it, just because it seems like a shame to let those FEs go to scrap!

                      Last decent find I saw in the yard was a '82 LTD CV 2-door. Car looked mint, I saw it when they placed it. 302/auto. Not a scratch on it.
