From a single source that have been sitting in their. Original boxes for 70+ years. There aren't too many of these rods that are in labeled boxes left.A majority of what we have are 2 types of unlabeled connecting rods that we can't determine what year, model, make or type of vehicle they are applicable to. We rated the Connecting Rod Boxes in this lot to range from. Grade'C' -'D' condition. What that means and how we graded boxes. Lmost flawless boxes, in very good condition with possibly being slightly crushed or creased.
Still in very good shape with a. Minor staining, possibly a torn/missing flap or slightly more creased.C: Still resembles a box but has. Have several creases, is semi crushed, heavy staining, and/or torn flaps. D: Box has some extra ventilation due to the multiple holes, heavy staining, crushed and torn ends.
F: Box is no longer a box but a mere mangled cardboard flap of its former self. 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, using compressed air and wiping down gently with shop towels but it's impossible to get them pristine. Basically don't be alarmed if you come across a dead spider or cobweb inside some of the boxes.This is just a small possibility and want to be clear to manage expectations. Note, this is the condition of the box the rod is in only.
Inside the boxes the rods them selves are in unknown. Condition; meaning I don't know if these were: factory rejects, over-sized, damaged, etc.
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 over the course of 50+ years. This wan't the case for most of them, but I have no way of knowing for sure, so.
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. 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 as t.He cardboard is from the 1930s to 1940s era. It's a little brittle and would rather not tear the cardboard and keep them in the condition they are currently in. The 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 open give an idea of what to expect. Think of it as a little surprise when you open each box. 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 various models. 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. I have done my best to describe these connecting rods as accurately as possible. If you notice something is mis-labeled or some information is incorrect, please let me know and I will correct the description ASAP. Any errors or mistakes are not intentional.
