Old Ford Graveyard

This is most likely not the correct forum for this thread, and really has nothing to do with restoration projects, just some pictures of worn out old ford trucks on an abandoned logging tract just behind my house. I really hadn't thought much about them until my recent project/obscession of my 66 long bed. I took a walk back there to see if there might be anything of use on my project since they have sat untouched for at least as long as I have lived here, 8 years. Basically just a bunch of rotting souls decaying beside the salt marsh, but the pictures do tell of their former utility.

A pretty fair symbol of what I saw.



the most intact truck, is a Dual axle, log hauler






I took this just for research sake, but something was hightailing its self out, and I was trying to come in the cab, so this was the only attempt I made for ID of trucks



About 7-8 trucks, mostly fords, with a GMC or two.









Modified for fuel haulin







Not so custom any more!



A worn out dash or 2





Aw well, ashes to ashes rust to rust!

Those ''Custom Cab'' emblems on the pic'' 3rd form last pic are worth pulling off that old truck, the one's on the door handles, also get the handles as there push button is a little longer the factory one's, then have them rechromed and you'll have a nice set!
PS, thanks for shearing, love the old junk..lol

Pretty cool to see them still there!! Scrap prices have cleaned up a lot of these!

Maybe some usable wiper arms!?!
