    Hudson. original and not on the road since 58' if you can see the tab. i didn't know they even tab'd em back then.:lol3

    was damn near pristene. other than the surface patina..
    some tires and a tune up and i bet it runs. even the interior (I hear from my boss) was like new just dusty.:huh and it needs a new ragtop.

    damn. how come I never find something like this. :baldy

    I love barn finds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    maybe it's the kid in me hoping to find the minibike for $5 leaned against a tree somewhere, but I do love barn finds and other nifty discoveries.

    Yep. I'd hit the brakes so hard my eyeballs would bulge. I'd be turned around and figuring out a begathon strategy for the money. "Yes, we've got room for it."

    I think that's part of the joy. :lol3

    thats a nice joy winch. they are Still the best out there. we do complete rebuilds on them instead of the customer forking over major Coin$$$ for a more modern import pos.

    and it's in Damn good shape from the pic.

    They're out there. You gotta keep your eyes and ears open, though.

    That goddamn 78 Eldo in the background of this picture is still in my dad's barn. Still in the same condition too.

    My 15 year old just came home from a week there, and says the Cad is BadAss.

    I don't know what to think about that.

    That's it! I'll lease it out to the local high school as a blocking sled.
