Extensive Montana Collection of Cars and Trucks

Located outside of Great Falls, Montana lies a collection of 415 cars, trucks, farm implements, and even a bridge, all for sale. Some are stored indoors and probably run, but the rest are outdoors and may have been there for ages. The indoor cars largely look restored or are nice originals, but the rest range anywhere from parts to complete weather-worn vehicles. You’ll have to reach out to the seller for details and prices, although much of this is on the seller’s website. We found this collection here on craigslist where just a snapshot of all the finds is demonstrated.

Without taking a detailed inventory of the seller’s wares, it’s hard to say what’s here. But most of it is U.S.-produced iron that seems to migrate mostly toward the 1950s and 1960s. The seller has posted everything out to his internet domain called Montana Solid Iron. Some of the pieces have already been sold and are marked as such, while others don’t have a price tag listed. But most of everything else does have a few details listed along with the price, which range from a few hundred dollars to several tens of thousands depending on quality and rarity.

One of the cars that have some information is a 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible for $17,500. It looks extremely nice and has a new top, paint, and upholstery. The mileage is around 67,000 and it comes with a 340 cubic inch V8 with an automatic transmission. Like everything else listed, the seller can help arrange for nationwide carriage (at the buyer’s expense) or hold it until you can come to get your prize.

Here’s a sampling of some of the cars that are being stored outdoors:

1948 Chevrolet 4-door sedan — $1,500

1950 Chevrolet dump trunk – $3,500

1951 Ford 2-door sedan — $1,250

1954 Ford F600 stake truck – $1,400

1956 Lincoln Premier – $1,400

1957 Cadillac 4-door hardtop – $7,500

1964 Ford Ranchero – $1,800

1967 Buick Riviera – $2,500

1973 VW Super Beetle Convertible — $4.500

On the other hand, here are some of the pieces that have had life somewhat easier by living indoors:

1926 Ford Model T Roadster – $15,000

1936 Dodge Bros. Coupe – $27,500

1950 Jeepster — $19,500

    At least the seller has a price and picture of every car/truck/farm implement he has listed for sale on his website. Kudos for him for spending the time organizing the website so items for sale can be searched either alphabetically or chronologically. Too bad most are junk and overpriced.

      For lots of the junkier pieces that catch your eye it would time to play lets make a deal.

    That ’65 Cutlass looks to be a promising vehicle indeed and in a very nice color combo. There are also a ’67 Chev fullsize, a ’57 Ford 2door + a ’56 Merc; all project wagons that should make fairly rare longroofs today.

    This looks to be an interesting place to visit just for fun and even though most of those projects are sitting outside Montana climate isn’t so hard on vehicles

    The ’65 Cutlass used a 330 cu. inch engine, not 340 as stated. It’s a very nice car! The seller has a lot of cars and knows what he has too, by the prices.

      I don’t see a 65 LTD. Did you buy it already?

    Another guy looking to cash in on a bunch of vehicles he got for next to nothing. Same with Montana Treasure Island, Rustless in Montana, and Desert Classics. These guys put a high price out there and see who bites. Guess we can be thankful that all these rigs were saved from the crusher back in the day.

      If you don’t like the price make him an offer. I have bought from Dwayne and find him to be fair and honest person. I bought a 1933 Ford model BB grain truck. He even stored it for a year before I was able to pick it up. The man does have to make a living.

    A treasure trove of cars with the invisible monicker of: “Here sits a car that once I drove.”

    Curiosity about the contact, Dwayne Fish led to this Montana court filing, regarding a burglary conviction of somebody with the same name being dismissed on appeal. The situation involved a gun fight, and is described here: https://www.courtlistener.com/opinion/877046/state-v-fish/

      4 years ago I bought a 1933 Ford BB truck from Dwayne. He was very fair and honest with me. He worked on pricing and storage for a year until I could pick it up. He helped me load the truck on my trailer. The truck was better then was thought to be. It had last run in 1963. Engine failure, bad rod. The truck stayed outside in a field in Great Falls all it’s life. There was only surface rust. Just over 50k farm miles on chassis and body. With new tires, used 49 Ford V8, new wiring today she is a running, driving truck. I most definitely would buy another from him. I too also did a records check. After talking to him I found no issues that worried me. John Bellmore.

    Checked all 52 pages and realized that he is full blown retail on 90% of the stuff and way over on the rest.

    So he also has a bridge for sale? Well I hope he’s not trying to sell the Brooklyn bridge again, I’m so tired of guys trying to sell it, because I bought it years ago, and it’s not for sale. I have the papers to prove it!

    In the lead image, behind the `60 Biscayne I spot what appears to be a `61 Impala 2dr. post, sitting atop another car. Very rare one-year only model I’d want to snag.
