The quantity alone actually makes these a rare find having all come from a single source. With work schedules, the need for fair weather, quantity of boxes to go through coupled with the time it takes to clean the boxes (they were in a barn over 50 years), sort and inventory, take-crop-sort pictures. Going to be probably another month before we can get everything inventoried and cleaned up. With that said, in the mean time, we're just gonna list what we have cleaned off and inventoried so we can start making a dent in these.
This listing is for a box of 20 Connecting Rods in Grade'B' boxes. How we graded boxes: These rods are in boxes in which we rated to be in grade'B' condition, meaning they are the boxes we found to be in very good condition with boxes possibly being slightly crushed or creased, minor staining, or possibly a torn/missing flap (see picture).
Inside the boxes is another story - the rods them selves are in unknown. Condition; meaning I don't know if these were factory rejects, over-sized, specifications, etc. Writing on box: L F. Most boxes have writing on them indicating the type/size.Some of the loose boxes (those not in 50ct boxes) had the rods removed and weren't necessarily put back in the same box they were taken out of. The ones in the 50ct boxes should be whats written on the box, but I won't be able to verify this. Keep this in mind when purchasing.
Also, I don't know the exact amount of surface rust on each individual rod as we have hundreds of these rods. I don't want to open each box and t.He few we did open are anywhere from almost pristine to having a moderate amount of surface rust. I try to pick 2-4 out of each lot to give an idea of what to expect. The cardboard is from the 1930s to 1940s era, so it's a little brittle and would rather not tear the cardboard and keep them in the condition they are currently in. Think of it as a little surprise when you open each box. Keep in mind, these were in a barn for over 50 years. There was quite a bit of dirt & cobwebs on these when we moved them out. We are doing our best to clean these to the best of our ability, but it's impossible to get them pristine. Basically don't be alarmed if you come across a dead spider or cobweb inside one of the boxes.
This is just a small possibility and want to be clear to manage expectations. What I do know is that t. Hese were originally from Niagara Motors and w. Hen cleaning out the barn, we came across some.
Some old papers, some of the material dates back to 1941. These rods are definitely a piece of history. My friend is holding onto the original papers and documents. F requested, I can include copies of the pictured papers.
Again, the original documents shown are not included. And are pictured because we couldn't find any other details on these other than they're Ford Connecting Rods for a Model T. If I find out any more info about these, I'll update the listing. If you happen to stumble across this listing and are knowledgeable of any specifics for these parts. We have over a thousand of these we will be listing in the coming days / weeks / month.20 Ford Connecting Rods in cardboard boxes in unknown condition. Copies of the pictured documents found in the barn that appear to be related to these rods.
