1951 Ford F1 Deluxe Edition

1951 Deluxe Edition Ford F1

This 1951, Deluxe Edition, V8, Ford F1 was in restoration nearly five years in the early 2010's. An original Crystal Springs truck it has been restored to a pristine condition. The wood slats in the new bed came from Central Mississippi and were finished locally. The truck runs and drives perfectly.

1951 Ford F1

1951 Ford F1

The 1951 Ford F1 truck formerly known as our "Sanford and Son" truck. Restoration was an after thought - the vehicle was originally acquired for a "parts" truck, but we didn't have the heart to destroy it. The truck is all original and powered by the traditional Ford flathead V8 engine. It won best in its truck class at the 2008 State Fair of Texas vehicle exposition.

1936 Phaeton

1936 Ford Phaeton

This 1936 Phaeton (Ford) is identical to one President Roosevelt toured the country in. The color is named Washington blue and it is powered by a Ford flathead V8 engine floor shift transmission. This particular auto came back into the US through the Port of Houston in the late 1990s from Latin America and speedometer had to be changed back to miles per hour. The vehicle is all original and has won numerous awards - including best of show “pre-war” at 2021 Mississippi state fair. “Pre-war” includes cars manufactured prior to 1940.

1948 Ford

1948 Ford

We refer our 1948 Ford as our "road" car! Labeled as such as it has a Columbia 2-speed rear end (which works much like a modern day overdrive) and a heater. It has been on numerous trips - a little hot in the summer though - but, a nice ride. The car has won numerous awards at local shows.

1940 Ford Mercury

1940 Ford Mercury

The 2-door 1940 convertible is an all original Ford manufactured the first year that Mercury's were made. It has been completely restored and with the flathead V8 engine it can travel.

1935 Dodge DU

1935 Dodge DU

1935 Dodge DU owned by Rosie Harvel. This Dodge Brothers car was manufactured by John and Horace Dodge and features suicide doors common on this era auto. The car has an interesting history - having served as transportation for the Weinsinger children (including Rosie) and later cared for by Papa Joe in his garage in Van Buren AR. When inherited, the car hadn't run in years, the brakes were locked up, but as a testament to the vehicle, in less than 4 weeks it made its first appearance in the MS State Fair - and won its class!

1931 Model A

1931 Model A

This 1931 Model A (B model engine and transmission) is one of our favorite autos and has been for years. Behind the passenger compartment is the rumble seat where children of this era were seated. It has been on a number of Model A trips around the local area and is equipped with a hand crank for when the battery is dead - but, it would take a good man to pull the crank!

1974 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

1957 Cushman Scooter

1957 Cushman Scooter - In the wall behind the scooter is the original bill of sale when sold in 1957 in Alabama for $427. All original, runs great, and yes it does do 40 miles per hour - at least going down hill! 40 MPH required by Mississippi to obtain a car tag to be driven on streets.

1952 Ford F1

1952 Ford F1

This rusty 1952 Ford F1 was purchased as a parts-vehicle and now is a regular driver for us. We have given it the nickname 'Rusty' and, with a little junk in the bed, it will serve as our "Sanford and Son" truck! Runs great and quite an eye-catcher!
