Sad Looking 1958 Standard 10

1958 Standard Model 10

Listed here on craigslist and sitting in Bryant, Iowa priced at $500. Would you please save this ’58 from the crusher! This Standard will be crushed this month if someone doesn’t buy it soon. This car has not run in 50 years, based on how it looks there isn’t any doubt about that. Jamie featured a 1956 Standard 10 and provided a lot of good information if you would like to read more background on the Model 10. We also covered this very car back in August when it was listed at the same time as another 10. Maybe the seller will have better luck this time?

The owner said this car sat in a junkyard on top of another car so the underside is better then if it had been sitting on dirt.  A rusty, dented, holes in the floor, with the rear window intact in the backseat is what you get.  All the tires are flat and the dollies are not included in the sale.

If you wish to pick this up you are asked to bring a trailer with a winch.  Are there enough usable parts here, if you happen to be working on a Model 10 to purchase this, or is this a $500, as opposed to the $200 piece of yard art Jamie posted?

Cheers,
Robert

    So, the threat is if no one buys this it goes to the crusher. This is like a bank robber pointing a gun at his own head and demanding all the money or he will shoot himself.

    I am so for saving “them” but sometimes you just have to say NO! Unfortunately, I think the guy should have left it where he found it! Would have saved him a lot of nagging just for it to go back to where it came from! Wonder what he paid the Junk Yard for it? Wonder IF said Junk Yard is going pay him, or make him pay them again?!?! So sad…………..

    Lemons car! Cut a hole in the hood and drop in a big V-twin or a buzzy 4 banger like a Miata or Neon DOHC and win EOF for sure.

    Aw, come on guys. This can be saved.
