Another Value Question

Having seen such questions posted here my son has asked that see if anyone would care to offer suggestions on priceing some of the stuff he has in the woods (What a Score post). He thinks the 39? Plymouth sedan and the 40 Nash coupe would be desirable but what are they worth? I know that's relative to what ever but any idea? Another question about the artillery style wheels is, are they worth more as is or would it be better to blast and prime them? We are open to ideas.

As for the value of the cars, its almost impossable to put a price on anything by only seeing a picture, some up close detailed pictures, of the extent of the rust areas, fenders , interior, ETC, might give a interested party a little insight,,,but even then ,anyone interested would be nuts to buy anything there ,, sight un seen,,
as for the wheels,,, I think if they were blasted and primered, and made presentable,, would be a huge improvement over some rusty dirty wheels,,, Artillery wheels are hard to find,, spend a little time and elbow grease to make them more presentable,,

I can't imagine the cars are worth very much, they look very rough. On the wheels I believe those are 36-39 large bolt pattern and I don't believe they are worth much.

how can you tell the year , when the bolt pattern isn't visable in the picture' whats the visual differance in these and the earlier wheels,
I'm not any kind of authority on wheels,, I was just wondering how you can determine that they are the large bolt pattern, when you can't see the bolt pattern?,, is there a differance in the spoke pattern from the earlier of Later wheels,, like I said I don't know the differance,,,,

Because it has the large cap. I know these caps doen't look exactly like the ones pictured I believe they are aftermarket. But you can see the size of the cap is identical to the painted portion around the stainless center on the wheels he posted. That part comes off with the cap I do believe.



Here is a 39 that looks almost identical outside of the stainless cap.





Before that I don't even think they had that style wheel did they? They were all wire, unless it had the accessory "jumbos" or something. That is what I remember and a quick Google didn't get me anything but the wires so I believe those wheels to be 36-39 but I sure as heck could be wrong.

The 36 Chevy never had that giant bolt pattern the 36-39 Ford did. Chevy used the same bolt pattern as now I believe all the way back to the spindle mount,, I think ??. The only other car I know of that that it ever was the VW which used a 36 and a 38 Ford that was brought back to Germany to dissect!

Brian

1936-39 Ford wheel.
