I called the guy. I'll be there at 7am Friday morning to check it out. I'll let y'all know if it's anything interesting.

It's a closed towing yard. The guys says all the vehicles are rough with lots of weeds and overgrowth.

Maybe a Rover or two????

I am confused by the first statement. "This is an estate sale owner died and this bike shop was still "OPEN" for business three week ago . Actually the family left it intack after his death 5 years ago."

Did he die three weeks ago or five years ago?

Let me know if there are any cool bike parts

Look for winches on any of the trucks. Koenig, Ramsey etc. stuff with a PTO or old Warn uprights.

Oh yeah, I am all over PTO stuff, and overdrives! I am hoping to score a capstan winch. I am not getting my hopes up as the guy said most of the stuff was pretty far gone.

Pics coming tomorrow....

If they are jeeps, look for a WARN/Saturn overdrive as well. If they're all "old WW2" jeeps, then they will have a Dana 18 twin stick transfercase, a 3 speed (maybe even on the column...rare) and if it has an additional shift lever...bingo. I'll buy any or ALL of those.

Nice. Quite a few years back a friend and I built a 3B race jeep for Line Mountain. I'm a Willy's fan for sure.

Yeah, I got lucky when I started to get into Rovers as Jeep Rescue can imply a lot of things!

I'll report back today on what I find out there!

Well, after an hour and a half drive I'd say it was not worth it. I pretty much expected that after the conversation with the guy last night. It's an old tow yard that is heavily overgrown with vines and weeds. Everything is heavily rusted and probably only good for parts. I was only interested in the military vehicles and Willys, so there was an M37, a few Power Wagons, and a WC command car I believe. There was about 8 Willys Jeeps/MBs/GPWs/M38s, all pretty far gone. I spotted a miltary generator with a Willys engine in it that I am interested in. The coolest thing was an Allison tank engine. I might snap that to build my own Blastoline Special (look it up).

Tons of old "Grandpa" type shop stuff in the garage as well. They are under a tight timeline to liquidate all the stuff.

My recommendation is to pass on all the stuff unless you are interested in a serious restoration or for the parts aspect. Oh yeah, lots of classic engines - saw a Hemi and a few flatheads.

The attached imagery is pretty old, it's much more overgrown!!!

Too bad it didn't turn out better - but still some possibilities. The split screen must have come from a recoilless rifle armed jeep - cool!

Nice restorations, btw - I would love to have a CJ2A someday...

Yeah, I pulled that split window out of the dirt - It's from an M38A1 with a recoiless rifle. I tried to buy it - but the guy won't sell little pieces. It's all or nothing....
