Barn find 1927 Buick & 1941 Hudson- Reseda, California
In June of 2010 I was asked to help evaluate and uncover a rather unique group of classic cars; one of which had be sitting since just after World War 2. In fact there was an original WW2 Navy uniform still sitting in the back seat. More rare cars came of hiding that fortuitous day. I was lucky enough to recover and bring home a few of these time-forgotten relics, thanks. Blue Nelson

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.





1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule so cool! Gangster?
https://www.youtube.com/user/MustangConnection1 Far from a Mustang but way too cool not to post. 1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule soo cool! Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission Special build limo with inch thick glass and carefully drilled gun ports in front, side and back windows In deteriorated condition and ready for a complete full restoration Chassis no. 5100136 Body Style 6075 Body no. 356 Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 154-inches. At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it gets more and more curious. The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number 356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21, 1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to history. The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they sometimes wore.

Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part1 of 2)
Hi! This is the latest installation in our series on salvaging junk cars and trying to get them to run, for no really good reason. This time our subject is a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, parked since 1966! Parts of the engine are missing, and so are the seats. The budget for repairs is about $20, as usual. We'll trade our junker pickup for the missing parts. I traded a couple of dead Mercs for this Chev because I thought it should be saved, and not parted out. Join us for a tour of Coyote Auto Salvage as we find the missing parts and take our new treasure home. In part 2, see if we can get it to go, and look a little better, too. Re-uploaded due to steady-cam feature malfunction. Thanks for checking it out!

1950 Chevrolet The Inside Story General Motors 12min
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Bel_Air The Chevrolet Bel Air is a full-size automobile that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1950--1975 model years. Hardtops in the Chevrolet Deluxe Styleline model range were designated with the Bel Air name from 1950 to 1952, but it was not a distinct series of its own until the 1953 model year. Bel Air production continued in Canada for its home market only through the 1981 model year. In 1950, Chevrolet came up with a revolutionary style that would set a pattern for decades. The Bel Air Hardtop (on the DeLuxe line) was styled as a convertible with a non-detachable solid roof. Models like this had been around since the 1920s, including early Chevrolets, with no degree of success. But the newly revised idea, sweeping the GM line from Chevrolet to Cadillac, had finally found its era. First year production reached only 76,662 as buyers cautiously tested the revised concept. The car cost $1,741 and weighed 3,225 lb (1,463 kg). Front suspension was independent, named "knee-action" In 1953 Chevrolet renamed its series and the Bel Air name was applied to the premium model range. Two lower series, the 150 and 210, also emerged. The 1953 Chevrolet was advertised as "Entirely new through and through," due to the restyled body panels, front and rear ends. However, essentially these Chevrolets had the same frame and mechanicals as the 1949-52 cars. The Bel Air series featured a wide chrome strip of molding from the rear fender bulge, to the rear bumper. The inside of this stripe was painted a coordinating color with the outside body color, and "Bel Air" scripts were added inside the strip. Lesser models had no model designation anywhere on the car, only having a Chevy crest on the hood and trunk. 1953 was the first year for a curved, one-piece windshield. Bel Air interiors had a massive expanse of chrome across the lower part of the dashboard, along with a de luxe Bel Air steering wheel with full chrome horn ring. Carpeting and full wheel covers rounded out Bel Air standard equipment. For 1954, the Bel Air stayed essentially the same, except for a revised grille and taillights. During these years, there were two engine choices, depending on the transmission ordered. Both engines were "Blue Flame" inline six cylinder OHV engines, featuring hydraulic valve lifters and aluminum pistons. The 115 hp (86 kW) engine was standard on stickshift models, with solid lifters and splash plus pressure lubrication. Powerglide cars got a 125 hp (93 kW) version which had hydraulic lifters and full pressure lubrication. In 1953-54, Bel Airs could be ordered in convertible, hardtop coupe, 2- and 4-door sedans, and, for 1954, the Beauville station wagon which featured woodgrain trim around the side windows. Power steering was optional for 1953; 1954 added power brakes, power seat positioner and power front windows. 1954 cars with stick shift used the 1953 Powerglide engine...
