    It looks like a deuce and a half, because it only has 6 lug hubs. (5tons have 10lugs)
    I use the axles outta those all the time to build mud trucks. Just the axles in that un-rebuilt state are worth $15-1750. And the transfer case if its airshift is usually worth around $12-1500. Looks like someone already borrowed the rear right hub which alone is worth $350.

    Exploring a new area this morning and I found 3.

    The first was at the trail head in front of a "No Dumping" sign.



    The others were on the trails.

    Weirdly enough - I can identify the bottom pic as a VW bug (or possibly a karmann ghia - both ran same running gear underneath) - 1966 or earlier, due to the "wide-5" bolt pattern wheels and link pin front suspension. That front suspension beam would probably get you $75-100 on ebay or a VW swap meet if it isn't rusted thru and is straight. Hell- I'd give you $20 for each front wheel if they aren't rusted out.

    Or if there's anything left of it put the rear end back together, borrow some wheels and tires, tow it home and start building a sandrail (takes alot of imagination lol)
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    Looks like the tunnel is gone/bent. Oh well - I've got 2 chassis out in my shop waiting for me to do something with them.

    Some great pics being thrown up but I'm amazed at how sound some of those older abandoned vehicles are despite what you guys may think.
    The equivalent here would've disintegrated & rusted into nothing by comparison.

    My guess is 1978 +- a couple of years.

    Pretty hard to tell the exact year from those pictures. 1973 was the first year that Ford had the trim down the side inset. 1972 and older had a raised trim strip. So they are at least 1973. They went to square headlights in 1978, so they are no newer than 1977.

    So, somewhere between 1973 and 1977 for the black one.

    If you are really curious, write down the VIN numbers and look them up. Just Google Ford VIN number ID and you can find out what factory they came out of.

    I thought this was a VW Rabbit, but after some googling, I'm pretty certain it is a mid 70s VW Scirocco.

    This F150 has been in this spot for 30 years that I know of. I felt like a dummy taking pics of it all the time but obviously you folks are into this sort of thing.

    i thought the VW might be a dasher, but it does look more like a scirocco now that i look at pictures of extant examples.

    p.s. i think i'm cool for using the word "extant".
