Looks like and Ambassador wagon- Nash Trash 

It's got a hood to a Polairs snowmobile keeping it company.

GMC looks good from the front is it a suburban body?   

Its got a visor and some spots could be old fire co.

Traction tires on the front is it a NAPCO?

327 w/center-dump headers. This is Alaska and shipping is quit prohibitive but if you are that interested I'll see what parts are still good on each one. I will have to clear it through family channels ? and only God knows how that's going to turn out

sorry power flipped flopped

And you are 100% right and I'm sure the wife would understand - NOT

I've been through this years back over several small Oliver' a M model IH and multitudes of vices, bolts/nuts, anvils, yada, yada, yada. I have learned to pick my battles and that one was not winnable. My heart still hurts but because of that I was able to convince my wife for me to get a 955 Caterpillar or three to keep me busy.680041283_12A4040back.jpg.75eaa44c494609b8125f986715b97ac8.jpg

You'll never guess what happened. Let me see how short can I make this ... my bike was at a friends bike shop, for storage, and his friend wanted to fix what was unbroken. My tranny shiftier and tranny came home as a basket case. The bike has been in mothballs since. B U TTTTTTTT the friends shop went under and I happened to get all the parts new and old OEM, wall signs n stuffs and it has been rat-holed away shhhh ... don't tell the wife. She can give it away when I'm gone, give her something to do.

@Dasnake "Love the beard we could do a smith bros. ad."

Thanks. I like my beard too but I thought it best to shave until an all clear is called on the viral front. I usta be a volunteer fire fighter and we had to shave to make the mask seal. I just put 2 and 2 together.

Ya I was paid til retiring 13 years ago, I always laffed at the mask rules because the scotts were all positive pressure. Didn’t matter, good score on a the bike parts, shovel stuff is getting pricey, I was out working on the ole gurl just now, here’s me with my truck dog, and below is the old shovel.middle one is a new use force cone from use force.com
