    Seems like every used car I get has some hidden stuff somewhere. Here are a few things that were hidden in various places in my car when I got it. phone pics 013.jpg The trunk lock was broken so it hadn't been opened when it was delivered. a full set of these 55 chevy hubcaps were in there.
    phone pics 014.jpg as was this air cleaner cover from some 396 chevy.
    phone pics 015.jpg have no clue what this goes to
    phone pics 017.jpg This was hidden under the carpet. Don't know what the part number signifies.

    That's funny, at least you know they tried to work on it. My original ignition key was wedged between the lower pass. fender and the rocker panel. I didn't find it 'til I removed the fender. Saved me from having to replace the ignition switch.

    I found this quality sheet under the rear seat of my '65 Formula S. Other then the name Murphy that was stamped in two places there were no markings on it. It was just a bit dirty and I guess moisture stains of some kind.

    Great Idea for a post. I found a motel room key for the same town I live in under the seat of my RR convertible. I also found a 1/4 (maybe 5/16)inch 3 foot chain under the seat. I wanted to remove it as it was all rust. You should of seen my face when that snubbed up. It was bolted with an eye bolt down through the carpet, floor, and torsion bar mount. I guess that was the 1969 version of "The Club". Thinking back, with no lockable steering column, and a jack knife through the roof, you could have yourself a pretty cool car! Being a factory tach car, you could of even have used the tach wire to hot wire it, without running an external wire and be on your way! On another situation, I was driving one day only to see a 71 satellite on the side of the road in the "nose high" position. There was a giant hole blown right through the hood. The whole car was pretty ratty looking. My brother wanted a good trunk floor for his RR and I decided to stop and check what else might be useable. Nobody was around so I took the number off the windshield to give to my brother. The car said 150 or /BO. ( this was a while ago) That Saturday, he came home with the car for 75 bucks.... with all the Factory Air Grabber Parts in the trunk.

    In our 69 Runner we had a rattle that was impossible to locate.
    When we were preparing it to send it out for paint; we removed the rear window assemblies and found a wire hanger that we assume had been in there since it came off the assembly line.
    I can only imagine what was going on in the mind of the assembly line worker.

    More recently we rescued a 59 Dodge Town Panel truck from a neighbor's back yard with super rusty doors and floors and there was a .357 shaped chunk of rust in an old dried out holster under what was left of the seat.

    It got most of whatever was running a 396, but that 55 must have been rotten cause it just kept coughing up pieces of that!
