Classic Car, Part & Tool Auction: Redding, California


We don’t know a lot of details about this online auction, scheduled for Thursday evening California time, but we sure appreciate Barn Finds reader Dave W. sending it in to us! There are some cool cars, lots of parts, signs, tools and hardware all up for grabs! This Mustang is one of a pair, one where bidding is $300, and one at $506. There are minimum bids on most of the auction lots.


One of the neatest cars to me is this 1937 Plymouth coupe that runs and drives. It’s powered what I think is the original flathead engine, a custom interior and has some cool vintage (or fake vintage?) detail paintwork. Current bid is $5,050 and that’s over the minimum.


Here’s a 1955 Ford Crown Victoria that is partially refurbished/restored. There’s even a video about this one if you are interested. It looks like quite a bit of work has been done. The minimum bid is $4,550.


There are three 1964-1965 Falcon based vehicles, all at a minimum bid of $300 each: two convertibles and a Ranchero. Why not pick up all three and have a matched set!


Here’s a 1939 Pontiac sedan; the seller says they don’t see any major rust, and bidding right now is only $1,125!


Here’s just a few of the emblems that will be going up in several different batches. How many different cars can you identify out of here?


Right now, this collection of miscellaneous carburetors is going for $5.00! Be sure and let us know if any of you bid on items from this auction; we’d love to follow up and see what these cars and other items end up selling for!

    I like the Plymouth. The same make and model was a favorite of Humphrey Bogart. A man that could have driven anything he wanted and this was his choice. He even used his own car like this in two of his movies. High Sierra, and The Big Sleep. Check them out some time. I love seeing the old cars in all those movies.

    quick question. if you were the winning bidder on the carbs could you tell from stampings on the carbs what they were? is there a cross reference somewhere to tell you what cars or what engines those carbs were used on?

    otherwise why would you bid on a bunch of carbs without being able to inspect them?

      A lot of times I’ve found the information I’ve needed by just googling the numbers on the part.
