1937 Hudson Terraplane, without the body, still resting in peace since the late 60's early 70's

images via Garage Journal member BB767 (Thomas) but if you think the Terraplane that the tree osmosised with is far out, look at page one of the thread an see how Thomas keep after and restored a 5 acre piece of land with a 1930's mechanics garage that included a pre 1935 "Rotary" brand car lift, a Pepsi machine, 35 ton floor press, 48 tons of junk scrap steel and 278 varous tires, a 57 chev with title but totally clapped out, two tractors an IH and a Case, NOS auto parts from the 40's, 50's and 60's and maybe best of all, a few flat head engines and a a Sun Engine Analyzer

built in the late 1930's and used by a father as a blacksmith/welding shop and later in the 50's one of his sons did automotive repair there until his death in the mid 1970's. The father carried on until his retirement in the 1980's.The shop was then was slowly under used and finally abandoned.

The above 46-49 Jeep work truck for the shop that this terraplane became a permanent fixture of. Work trucks (real ones) beng rarely photographed, and who ever heard of a Jeep work truck? I had to post it.
