    Another notable feature is the distinctive 'Roller' assembly on the front of non-winch equipped Half-Tracks. The purpose of the roller was to prevent the vehicle from 'digging in' when traversing ditches or other similar obstacles.

    Great thread. Love to see old vehicles. Rarely know what they are, but they evoke all sorts of imagined histories for them before their rusting demise.

    Here's my contribution. Spotted this past October in Everett, Pennsylvania.

    I guessed a c.'32 Ford, but really have no clue. Suspect some folks here could ID from the door handle alone.

    OBTW, visiting a set of kids and grands in Edmonds, Washington, just now. Kathi came over to see what I was doing (code for "why aren't you playing with the little shixxes." :dirtdog).

    When she saw me scrolling through this thread, she did The. Eye. Roll. :fpalm

    Bumper "not quite right," but Google images search shows many variations.

    The model of the truck is a Scania L 110 6 cylinders diesel I think the year is 1968/69

    Not really abandoned but it hasn't moved in at least ten years, downtown Buena Vista.

    And a short vid of some cool iron just out of town. I'm always amazed at how well preserved stuff is in the western states, I saw a 50's Chevy pickup driving around Albuquerque about 15 years ago with what appeared to be original paint, amazing..

    OK, as I freely admit my ignorance of such things, but the derelict sure looks like a much lighter class vehicle than any I can find of that model among images on the web.

    Whatever, always seems a shame -- albeit often an economic reality -- to see a once-useful vehicle in such sad shape.

    Beeeyoootiful.

    In 1951 or so, my father rented a similar brand-new Ford for us to drive from Lexington, Kentucky, where he was a student at UK, to Whitesville, Kentucky. My grandparents lived on a farm south of town on a then-dirt county road. We had a older Studebaker that was too unreliable to make the 400-mile or so roundtrip.

    Only four at the time, I can still remember (tho possibly only from hearing stories about the event) getting car sick along the way and throwing up all over the new cloth upholstery. :(: Dad spent the entire visit trying to make the car look and smell better.

    You might be surprised. They look like many of the wheat trucks around here that get dusted off and running again every year in time for wheat harvest.

    Some key clues...
    the windshield is one piece {not split}
    suicide rear doors
    horizontal grill
    must of had external mounted headlight housings ,,, {none "in" fender}
    The rear fender has a horizontal line


    my best effort so far .. but the grill is not correct...

    I'd be more concerned about the building, looks close to caving in.
