    Default Farm clear out, old cars!

    Sorry posted in car for sale but wanted it here!

    My in laws are trying to clean up the old farm just out of woodend. (Victoria). They have several old cars some are basically scrap, but would be good to offer to someone who may need that hard to find part that doesnt exist anymore. Mostly old holdens, however I have know idea what they are or even what they could potentially be worth (if anything). Also a few old fairlanes. Does any one have any ideas? How should I go about moving them on? They would like to scrap most of them. But being a car guy id prefer to find someone who needs something hard to find to get what they need!
    They have absolutely zero interest in cars. So if anyone wanted a hard to find part would be taking a whole car. I'll try to upload pics.

    The blue fairlane is actually not to bad. Was being daily driven until about a year and half ago. For memory it also had only about 150 kms on it.

    The extremely rusty white and blue Holden sedans are both HD models.
    Ute on it's side with no wheels looks like a Ford Prefect.
    The blue Holden ute is one of FB,FC,FE,EK.
    White Holden ute is HT,HK,HG.
    Green ute is a Toyota and may have some interest.
    Fords won't be worth a lot unless there is a V8 in there.
    Have a look on eBay to see what people are paying for parts and projects. Sometimes crazy money. The HDs have only a few useful bits left, but the blue Holden ute may be seen as a project, so certainly worth more than scrap. Possibly also the Toyota and White Holden ute.

    I suspect they are likely to be bent

    Cars may be rust buckets, but your photos are bordering on art! Nicely done.

    Cheers

    I'm of the opinion, having known a few, that farmers in general are not disposed towards getting rid of anything that is useful, and usually on a farm you will find a collection of all the things that are not useful gathered into one area. If it's a farm with hills, you'll find the un-useful stuff in a gully somewhere, if it's a flat land farm, the un-useful stuff will usually be kept underneath pine trees, although I'm generalising a bit, wherever it's "kept", it ain't much use!
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    Thanks for the info David S. Gives me something to go on. If it's not euro and particularly French I have no idea!

    Sorry 59 Floride no straight 8s. Plenty of 6s though! No bent ones either!

    Thanks amidillo, magnificent part of the world that truly beautiful especially when its green.

    I forgot to upload the front of this one. Also the old toyota actually looks as though it might fire up. Although would need some fuel and a battery!1552303327316.jpg

    That's pretty accurate. Out of sight out of mind. But I know that, for God only knows what reason there are people restoring these old bombs. So as such may need something these may still have!

    the stout would probably be worth more than anything else, if you can target the marketing a little. See Icon.

    FC going by the grille. Someone will want it. Just look for a few recent sales of rusty old Holdens and be surprised.
    That would be a great 'before' image. The barbed wire in the back makes it.

    The Toyota is known as a Stout. There are a few on Gumtree at widely varying values.
    Found this, which may help a little:

    Looks like it has more value than scrap too.

    The Stout may be the most valuable of the lot, if you can find it's market - see if Waddingtons in Castlemaine could help sell it to the US?

    Yep, the only one I recognised is the Stout. Could be worth something. I am chasing a Hilux, early one, none of these? Or a Scat/Bundera dunny?

    I reckon the Holden utes are FC and HT.

    Shame they are not old tractors: I'd be all over them.

    G'day,

    just wait until the new 'local laws' are up and running. At a few places already in Vic it seems - a limit of one unregistered car per address !

    There's a lawyer firm that makes a killing inventing this rubbish and selling it to councils all over the place.

    cheers,
    Bob

    I assume it's a 6 cylinder.
    That photo is part of an album of Holdens '48 to '78.
