This auto mall is less than an hour from my house, I gotta get there and check the place out.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Looks pretty darn complete. Amazing it has 52k miles for a '26.

First thought....The Grapes of Wrath film🙂

That is the kind of car that I could not "hot rod". I could fix what needed fixin' and drive the heck out of it.

All of my life I have equated Tom Joad & Woody Guthrie with my dad. Dad was born on an Oklahoma homestead in 1913. He and his brother rode a freight train from Texas to California and picked fruit in the fields and were in the CCC where they did road building and construction in the Feather River country in northern California. Once on the way home from a California trip we drove through the "Valley of the Green Giant" and he showed us some of the remains of the migrant camps where he had worked. In Junior college we reading The Grapes of Wrath and my teacher was impressed with my take on it. Dad had told me when I said I was reading it in class that they, the Okies, would have killed Steinbeck if they found him because the book embarrassed them and made them think less of themselves because the communists had used them. I love Steinbeck's work because it makes me feel closer to my dad. A little know work is a collection news paper articles he wrote called Gypsy Harvest dealing with the brutal treatment of the sons and daughters of the American pioneers victims of the Dust Bowl. California was already a corporate owned land where workers were pawns in the rich man's game.

This Chevy would have been treasured then.

Yep, mechanical simplicity😁 Like an old flat fender Jeep, get it opperating and have fun!

Sixball, your dad was just 2yrs older than my grandpa Sammons. Very similar start in life. He left home in Mn @ 14, hopped a freight to Montana to be a cowboy for 2yrs. Hopped another to Ca, but could only find migrant work. Hopped another back to Mn and joined the CCC.

Growing up listening to both sets of grandparents stories, i was always interested in the history. I started to read "The grapes of wrath" in 8th grade, but got too busy and never finished it. Freshman history class the teacher showed the film.
I never read Gypsy Harvest, but seen short films on it. Tough life in tough times.
