Ford vehicles make up the plurality of the entire collection, with just around 50 complete vehicles and dozens more parts, with vehicles ranging from the 1929 to the 1949 model years based on a preliminary list. Chevrolet comes in second with just over 20 vehicle, ranging from 1930 to 1967. A similar number of Oldsmobiles will also be on offer in varying condition, with cars from 1935 till 1949

Ah yes, treasures every one of them. In the right hands, a loving restoration. The world will never see such masterfully built cars again. :)

Attending that auction would be quite the road trip!

That could be a fun hobby, restoring those rides.

No we have to upgrade them so they are not driven by the engine. Like a motorcycle kick starter. Oh yeah, that is the other bad thing that happened over time that many if not all motorcycles now come with electric start. Part of that problem is the bikes are too big.

I just had a beautiful day. It was like heaven. I spent several hours walking around Henry Ford Greenfield Village. They drive Model T's, Model A's including trucks and busses, all around the village. It was great. What a wonderful retirement job, to drive these historic cars around the village. That way I stay out of Shadow's way and get to have my fun.

Ohio man's collection of '36 Fords going to auction

Image

The collection of 1936 Fords includes a panel van, a four-door convertible, a tanker truck, a dump truck, a pickup, a “humpback” sedan and coupe, a Woody and a four-door Phaeton. There are also two 1936 one-ton flatbed trucks and a Ford fire truck from that year as well.

Paul,
"How would you like to commute to work in an original Ford Model T? That’s what David Liepelt is known to do. He also raced his T against a Tesla Model S from Michigan to Long Island as part of an article that Car And Driver did. And he’s our guest on Autoline After Hours tomorrow night. So join me and Gary Vasilash for some of the best insider discussion in the business starting at 6 pm eastern time right here at Autoline.tv"

That will be live April 24th, starting at 6 pm, or you can watch it dead at a later time.

Thanks for the post. I guess I have to watch it dead because I don't have a television set. Now I am actually thinking of putting a "steal this truck" sticker on my Ranger so I will have an excuse to get a Model A.

Yesterday I saw a Model A just driving down the road at rush hour, like a boss. Wasn't holding up traffic or anything, just going along at around the 40mph limit.
