This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.
Old Arrow engine found abandoned in woods of Buna, Tx
We were told about this old antique stationary engine, when some people
bought the land in Buna Texas. They only wanted the scrap weight for it. It
actually weighs 1,400 pounds, but we gave them 100 dollars..
We thought at first it was an old natural gas operated oil field engine,
and it was a Fairbanks- Morse engine, but we were wrong on all counts..
After a lot of research, we found it to be a C-46 Arrow engine, with a
rare gasoline operated stationary engine, with a carb., and a factory fuel
pump.. I don't think with the wood skids, and the gasoline operation, it
was ever intended to run an oil field pumper jack..
We will get it running and show it on YouTube, should be interesting.
How to start a 1912 Cadillac
The 1912 Cadillac is the first automobile in the world to include a starter
motor. This is the procedure in starting one and driving away.
Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
