Looks like the ladder should also be part of that "kit".

It looks hot-dipped galv, so it's definitely a good one.

I'd start at $500, and be only mildly "negotiable".

Galvanizing doesn't come cheap!

Need some help pulling it off?

The hasp looks good!

A Question For NumberDummy

Bill,

Did you know about these?




This one will blind you! 1936 Stainless Steel Ford
For you car/metal buffs. The 1.5 million insurance


couldn't begin to cover the replacement value.



Here is your "trippy-trivia" for the day.


What a great conversation piece and brand statement.











In 1935, officials at Allegheny Ludlum Steel Division and
the Ford Motor Company collaborated on an experiment
that would become a legacy and a tribute to one of the
most dynamic metals ever developed. Allegheny Ludlum,
a pioneer producer of stainless steel, proposed the idea
of creating a stainless steel car to Ford. The idea took
shape in the form of a 1936 Deluxe Sedan. That car became
the centerpiece of a campaign to expose the public to the
new metal and its many uses.



This is the 1936 Ford Tudor Sedan built for and owned by Allegheny
Ludlum Steel. This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one
currently in running and in road worthy condition.







The jaw-dropping beauty offered here is one of that tiny production
run. The car is in exceptional condition, with the interior and even
the frame looking great. All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on
them before they removed them from service.






These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing
projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being
able to drive them for one year. The V-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like
a sewing machine and was
surprisingly smooth and quiet. I thought
this was a much better looking automobile
than the Ford Thunderbird
that visited us last year. FYI, the car was insured (we were told) for
the trip to Louisville via covered trailer for 1.5 million dollars.









We were also told thatthe dies were ruined by stamping the stainless
car parts, making these the last of these cars ever produced.
The only privately owned example, it won 2 trophies at the Early V8
Club Auburn 2009 event,
1st Place at the 2009 Hershey AACA event
and was nominated for the 2009 AACA Car of the Year.



Recently restored by Lon Kruger, one of the world's best restorers,
the car utilizes the standard 221/85 HP flathead mated to a 3-speed
manual and working Columbia overdrive,
and has been driven just
18 miles since its restoration.

There were other versions of these stainless steel cars, one was a 1958 Thunderbird.
