$150?   I bet the steel would scrap out well over $1000.      Maybe even $1000 for the hauler and tractor.  That is a lot of weight.

Looking at the rear fenders, I think maybe '57s

It would probably cost you more than that to get them out of wherever they are to the scrapyard!

Defiinitely 56 chevies---they'll be worth a lot more than $150 each.


She's real fine, my 409!!!

Cars in front are 56 chevs top one is a 4 dr bottom one could be a 2 dr or atleast a 4dr hardtop back on top looks like a 57 you can see the front fender doesn't go as far down at front to make room for the big 57 bumper grille.
Not sure about one below which has had its roof damaged by the collapsing trailer.(looks like a 56)
Cars are probably rotted beyond repair thats why they are so cheap also a big diffrence in value between a 4dr & a 2dr the seller probably thinks they would make good yard art if that Cabover is savable its body would probably be worth more than that.

Yes it should have been put in the 1/1 section,but could this be a barn find or not,even for parts.
