Default Trade all my junk for a driver?

Motivation, skills, tools and equipment lacking, I thought I would put up all my junk for trade (or sale?) for something I could be driving and enjoy. It seems my "talents" are for buying stuff and taking things apart, but when it comes to re-assembly, it just doesn't seem to happen.

Looking for a '40s, '50s or '60s cruiser - a car or truck, or '70s Chevy trucks. Chevy, GM or Dodge preferred, and might even consider a Ford, although that would be last choice. Doesn't have to be pretty, just drive-able, and not necessarily a rat rod. So, here's the list and some pics and "Build" links.

1) Hodge Podge tow rat pickup:

This is a '56 Chevy pickup on a '94 fullsize truck frame with 4.3 V6 and auto trans. Haven't touched it in months ...

------------------------------------

2) 1959 Chevy 3/4 ton rolling chassis:

-------------------------------------

3) 1950s IH cab and doors and other stuff"



----------------------------------

4) 1954 Pontiac Chieftain:

----------------------------------

Also have a 235 stovebolt, 3 spd trans and other accumulated parts that could go with any of these if wanted. Will help with transport if needed.

Yep Dave, the stuff you have requires a lot of work. I am helping you look for something you can get going in this hobby with that will be cheap, easy and fun. My '37 Chevy truck was running when i bought it for $1500 and i put maybe $600 more into it. It is my daily right now and so fun to drive it makes going to work fun.

No more scratch builds for me
They cost too much and take way too long.
The next one will be a strong runner that is 100% legal or I won't buy it.
I figure I paid my dues already

Yeah, you guys are right. I've put it all up on craigslist for sale, so maybe some of it will go away. Should have done my due diligence in the first place, but got a little crazy. Actually a LOT crazy, not realizing what I was getting into, not realizing what is really involved. If I can get it down to one, maybe two, that would be good. We'll see ...

Got a guy coming to look at the '56 cab and the '90 Suburban. Fingers crossed ...
