The car looks to be in decent shape, but is about as ugly a color combination as I could imagine.  Plenty of “potential” though.

Beautiful car.  Colors aren't my cup of tea but I've seen uglier.   $25K seems like a decent price.  What say you, Geoff?

I think the brown roof detracts from the other so/so color.  I lighter cream would accent better I think.

Solid black or solid white, fits this car. Either way, lot's of potential. Lot's of money too.

"$25K seems like a decent price.  What say you, Geoff?"

I say that is more than double what I paid for my running and driving '35 with a freshly overhauled original engine and a new clutch.  Badly in need of new wiring, a new interior, and paint.  Not enough pictures to make any kind of a real price guess but the '34 certainly needs paint, probably also needs to be rewired if it hasn't been and no idea on the interior.

That's beautiful.

What did you do with the engine, headlights and wheels?

Complete drivetrain, front to back (and radiator), went to a Limo restorer in western Canada.  He flew to Florida, bought a used Chevy van and a smallish trailer here, loaded up and headed back to the west coast and Canada.  Slept in the van on a thin mattress on top of the parts in the van.  A picture below, looking at it reminds me that the buyer actually bought 2 trailers and, as you can see, disassembled one and toted it back in the other.  Engine and transmission in the trailer, rear end and miscellaneous in the van

The 5 wheels went to Europe, don't remember the country now.  The headlight buckets are still on the car, converted to modern Halogen lights, the old headlight lenses went to a collector in upstate New York --- not far from Poughkeepsie.
