    Last weeks pick(tures)

    Post by willowbilly3 on Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:09 pm

    Here's a pick from 100 miles east. My buddy got the 2 older trucks and the buick. I got the 56 F-250. The 59 Cheby truck is still there. He's asking $1500. It has a rebuilt 292 in it. Pretty nice old truck, alwaus been inside.









    And the Z. I offered $400, he wanted $500 but now has emailed me that it's going to the scrappers if it's still there next month when they come. I guess I'll just let the asshole scrap it if he'd rather sell it to them for $234. (I did the math, they are giving him $125 a ton and the factory weight is 3750 on the tractor)

    the sideboards on your 56 look like new----only a bone head acts that way---like trying to guilt trip ya into the extra hunnert scratch

    those gs cali edition are some far and few between--if it's all like the view in the pic it has some redeeming qualities

    one of the farmers i worked for during the high school years had a ??54/55/56?? that we used for a fuel truck--he kept a close rein on it--it was a blast on those country roads--i suppose he could tell where i was by the cackles

    Cali GS is rough, whole front end beat to shit. No real performance stuff like a regular GS, just the cheap-assed Skylark 2 door post with fancy wheels, vinyl top and a 350 2 bbl with a fresh air scoop
    F-250 is a six banger, also beat to shit except the cab and grille.

    too bad about the gs--they are a really good sleeper

    Pretty sure it's a 223, maybe the first year, not sure. No responses to the F250 on C-list for a G except one guy from Oklahoma who offered $100 for the hood emblems. Kinda toying with the idea of parting it out, lots of good parts to ebay. Grille-$300, front valance $150, heater $150, steering box $150, speedo cluster $75. I saw one nare cab, all stripped out, no doors or title brought $350, figure mine with doors and title should do all that or more. I'd still have a good 223 and the back to make a trailer from.

    I would love to have that Z it has hydraulics!!!!! I am going to mess with the cobra this weekend and see if on the off chance the plug wiggled loose and that is it. If so we will be in touch!!!!! The rear tires look okay in the pics are they dry rotted? It looks like a ZAU if no one ever swapped out the front ends.

    Thanks to JB the MM has found a home in Wyoming, can't wait to get her home this spring. THANKS AGAIN JB. If he has the cultivators laying around or even part of them I'd like to have them, especially the wheels off of them as the set I have is missing those.

    He says he has them but there wasn't much sticking out of the snow where he indicated they were.

    I'll FB message you my cell number so when you go and discover any other mm crap you can give me a jingle. Below is a pic of a ZTU of mine that has a mostly complete set on it.


    Here is a much nicer one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/imrickndakota/3644926418/

    OK. I don't have a phone that takes pictures but I can get some and post them here. Also, do you collect thrashing machines? I know where there is a couple over towards Broadus. She has a lot of other junk and is cleaning up. I've bought some cars from her. She also has several 50s vintage farmalls with stackers on them and a real decent little ground driven turd hearse. It's wood sides, rubber tires and green but I didn't see a name on it. About the same size as the IH 200s I have.
    Speaking of, I have an IH 100 I would sell. It's all there and in decent shape except the rotted off tires. I turned down $1000 for it right after I got it home because it was kind of given to me for my sister to pull with horses. I wouldn't turn that down now, they go about $3000 restored. They were made to go behind a Cub.

    I can tell the brand of most of the common plows just off parts numbers usually don't need a pic. It would depend on the brand of thresher, MM made them (I have a Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company one). If it is a brand that also made steam engines might be interested like Rumely, Aultman Taylor. IH or Case i would pass unless it was a cherry.
