John, the snow tires are 8.90-15. 2 pair. 1 pair studded the other not. Do they have any value?

Richard, My rear bumper does not look like that.

Bill, I sent you some photos.

Thank you all,
Vincent

If the are banded togather in pairs they will! Ship UPS. But value is up to the seller raidales in the yard here are around 25-50. The big 17-20s a little more. So what is the value of a 50 year old tire. me I would offer 25 bucks each. Your Ida may be different but by the time I pay to get them here that's a lot to. Have it in original tires at a local show. . There is one molding I need off the car but it is at least a hr task to get it off. I'll pm you.

That must have been fun just getting it drug onto your trailer! I have fought that battle. They never pull straight with flat tires. I see that your leaf springs broke loose on the driver's side too.

Interior looks to be very save-able...... but I am sure that you are right on the body, floors, frame, etc. There are guys restoring rigs of that vintage(with good bodies and butchered interiors) that would kill for the interior in this one!

Kurt, it took me more than 2 1/2 hrs. to get it on the trailer. And you're right, it did not come on straight. The rear end and the rear frame section is no longer even attached to the rest of the car. If you look closely you can see that the rear bumper is about 10" back from the body.
I started dismantling it today.

Vincent,
A friend of mine & I paid $1500 for a '74 Superior 54" ambulance parts car............ basically just to get the original cabinet in the rear.

That cabinet is probably worth as much as $500 to someone that desperately needs one. The cabinet is usually the first thing tossed by every hillbilly who thinks he is going to turn an ambulance into a "limo". They usually loose interest in the "project" and look to sell it shortly after having burned the cabinet! As I mentioned earlier....... there is probably 1 cabinet in existence for every 5 deserving restoration projects out there.

I got a few items from this 68. Even if I cannot use anything myself, I hated to see these somewhat hard-to-find bits and pieces go to the crusher. I am a sentimental preservationist, I guess you could say.

I have, and continue to do that with complete cars! Everything inside of that rig should be saved!

I am glad Vincent found PCS. I bought this on ebay (263095331271) a week or two ago for $260.00 to save it from the crusher. My rollback driver said I don't get paid to do forestry work I drive a truck you have to come along and do the work with me. Sadly I am having heath issues at the moment and could not do it. The seller Brian said he had someone who would take it and cancelled the sale. Vincent must have been that guy. A tip of my hat for not going strait to the crusher with it as so many would have done. From what Brian told my driver Vincent is understating the effort required to get the rig on his trailer.

Default Save as much as you can.

I agree with everyone that says to save as much as you can. The only suggestion I might add is to label everything. Here is a thread where we stripped a 1974 Superior. http://www.professionalcarsociety.or...ad.php?t=12005. The car appeared saveable but the owner had other ideas. We have sold many of the parts but still have some. We boxed up the small stuff so it doesn't get mixed in with the other pro car parts we have around. Labeling with year, manufacturer, location(which side) a part came from can help down the road when you go looking for a part.
