The body does look pretty good on the red truck. I can't tell much about the white one. What do the frames look like? Will they roll?

Surprising to see a couple of cruisers in Lee county. I'd love to hear the story on how they wound up there.

Hi All:

Looks to be plenty of good parts on those two rigs; perhaps even a salvageable body tub and frame.

So, if you can get 'em cheap enough go for it! Neither one is anywhere close to being a running rig, but with some work and $$ definitely possible.

Good luck!

Regards,

Alan

I'm more interested in the tractor beside the red cruiser... is that a Farmall Cub?

Grant --- sure looks like one. The only other possibility would be the "A", but they were a bit bigger. I grew up driving a Cub and the neighbor had the "A" model. The one in the pic even has the hydraulic pump on it. Real "hotrods", a whole 12 HP and max 12 MPH.

I just looked at it again. Yep it's a Cub, too small for the "A".

what if he was selling for 1750$

I would talk him down to $500 each and that would be with clean titles. No Salvage titles. I would then take both of them and build one good one. After that one was done I would part the other one out.


Good find

I would dig those leaves out and get a closer look at that red ones body. Looks like a large bondo flake in the first pic/first set of the red one's rocker panel?
