Abandoned A-C

CHEVROLET (early '60s) This very interesting looking Chevrolet tow truck was discovered in Mayer, Ariz., by Jim Prueter. We seldom come up empty handed when doing research to identify vehicles, but this one has us stumped. It looks a lot like an early '60s Corvair truck, but the front end does not match up with the Corvair. Only certainty — it's from early '60s and it probably hauled a few broken down cars in its day.

CHEVROLET (1939) This 1939 Chevrolet tow truck was found living in abandoned retirement as an advertising sign for a body shop in Starke, Fla. The 1939 was one of the last model years Chevy trucks and medium-duty vehicles shared an appearance with Chevrolet passenger coupes and sedans. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1960 C/K) — Chevrolet's 1960-61 pickups wore a distinctive front end design with two large ovals enclosing the parking lights high atop the hood. The 1960 truck wore a new C/K designation — the C indicated two-wheel drive and the K indicated four-wheel drive.  Chevy used that name until 1999 when it was changed to Silverado. The first generation of the C/K truck ran from 1960 through 1966 with a new drop-center ladder frame allowing the cab to sit lower. This 1960 pickup was discovered in an Illinois salvage yard by Peter Hubbard.


CHEVROLET (1950) — The addition of the Powerglide automatic transmission gave Chevrolet an edge on Ford in 1950. It was a $159 option. A slightly larger version of the long-running "stovebolt" six-cylinder engine came with the new transmission to make up for power loss from the automatic shifter. This 1950 Chevy was found in Rolla, Mo., along Route 66. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHRYSLER (1937) — The 1934-37 Chrysler Airflow large sedan was ahead of its time with a streamlined, aerodynamic design. But the sleek-looking mid-30s Airflow simply did not catch on with the public and its short four-year run ended with less than 25,000 total sales. Because of its relative rarity it's hard to find one in the wild, but Peter Hubbard spotted this 1937 model in an Illinois salvage yard several years ago. It could be purchased in five trim levels/sizes starting at $1,245. The ad above is for the 1937 model. (Photos by Peter Hubbard)


CHRYSLER (1941) — This 1941 Chrysler Town Sedan was found rusting away in a back yard near Blanco, Texas. Chrysler Corp. products were great sellers prior to the war as evidenced by the fact the Chrysler Corp. owned a whopping 24 percent market share, five percentage points more than Ford Motor Company. In 1941, Chrysler models could be purchased for the first time with a semi-automatic transmission that delivered a Lo-Hi shift. Above, a 1941 advertisement touting Fluid Drive.

CHEVROLET (1936) — Photographer Charles Skaggs found what looks like the remains of a circa 1936 Chevrolet work truck near Lee's Ferry, Ariz. Chevrolet advertising opined that it had made three major improvements for 1936: increased power, reduced operating costs to a "record low," and "modernized its truck design and construction in every important part and feature."


CHEVROLET (1954) — In early 1947, Chevrolet introduced its Advance Design trucks, the first completely redesigned GM vehicles to appear after World War II. Owners of earlier pickup models had asked for a roomier, more comfortable cab with improved visibility and a wider pickup box. They got it all. The Advance Design was built through 1954 before Chevrolet completely overhauled the lineup. The first, and only, major Advanced Design styling and engineering changes occurred with the 1954 models. These models featured a one-piece windshield, an all-new grille and new parking lights. This 1954 model was discovered in Mt. Carmel Junction, Utah. (Photos by Jim Prueter)


CHEVROLET (1971) — The second-generation Chevrolet C/K pickup was built from 1967-1972. The 1971 model was given several styling updates including a new "egg crate" grille design. This 1971 C/K found in North Carolina appears to be a receptacle for junk . One of the updates for '71 was the inclusion for the first time of an AM/FM radio. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1961) — Jim Prueter discovered this 1961 Chevy Corvair two-door coupe ready to hook up with the same period travel trailer in Winterset, Iowa. The small air-cooled rear-engine Corvair was a hit in its first six years of existence selling about 200,000 copies a year.


CHEVROLET (circa 1930) — This circa 1930 Chevrolet truck has survived its "beast of burden" lifestyle in Utah — at least for now. The first Chevrolet trucks went on sale in 1918, the same year that the Chevrolet Motor Company became part of GM, called the Model 490 Light Delivery. (Photos by Jim Prueter)


CHEVROLET (1946) — This 1946 Chevrolet sits in a salvage yard, perhaps waiting for a new owner. The '46 Chevrolet was basically a carryover from the 1942 model after production of new cars ceased during the World War II years. All 1946 models relied on a 6-cylinder, 90 horsepower engine carried over from the pre-war years. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1964) — The Chevrolet Impala was introduced for the 1958 model year as top of the line Bel Air hardtops and convertibles. The third generation 1962-1964 featured new "C" pillar styling for all models except the 4-door hardtop. This style proved extremely popular, and contributed to the desirability of the 1962–1964 Impalas as collectibles. These two 1964 Impala SS models found in eastern North Carolina look as if they are ready for restoration. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CADILLAC — A 1951/52 Cadillac is flanked by post-war 1946/47 models living in retirement in the southwestern U.S. These cars were the luxury class of North America after World War II. Post-war Cadillacs introduced many of the styling features that came to be synonymous with the late 1940s and 1950s American automobiles, incorporating many of the ideas of General Motors styling chief Harley J. Earl. (Photo by Jim Prueter)


CADILLAC (1941) — This 1941 Cadillac was found in South Carolina in what looks like restorable condition. In 1941 Cadillac introduced the optional Hydra-Matic, the first mass-produced fully automatic transmission, offered the previous year on the Oldsmobile. Notice the Flying Lady Goddess ornament that graced the hood of the '41 model. Above, a magazine advertisement for the 1941 Series 62 Cadillac. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (circa 1950) — This 1950s era Chevrolet pickup was spotted in South Carolina perhaps awaiting a good home and a new life. The so-called Advanced Design trucks were the best selling pickups after World War II. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1950) — In 1949, Chevrolet presented its first "all new" model since the end of World War II. A lower, sleeker profile, with the lines of the front fenders smoothly blending into the doors to be countered by the rear fenders that continued to "bulge" out of the sides of the car. This slightly updated 1950 Chevrolet sedan was found  at the Wagon Wheel Motel in Cuba, Mo. Depending on model, the 1950 sedan sold for $1,450 for the Styleline Special to $1,529 for the Fleetline DeLuxe. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1954) — This 1954 Chevrolet panel truck was spotted in Mexican Hat, Utah, its service as a laundry company delivery vehicle long past. But with a good cleaning and perhaps a little service, it looks as it could spring back into action. (Photo by Jim Prueter)


CHRYSLER LeBAREN (1990) The Chrysler LeBaron became a coupe and convertible from 1987-1995 built on a derivative of the K-car platform. The mid-sized car lost its boxy look from the previous generation with a more aerodynamic design that included covered headlights. Available engines included a base 2.2-liter or a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. A Mitsubishi 3.0-liter V6 was added in 1990. This example was found in a deteriorating condition in North Carolina. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (mid 60s) — This mid-60s C10 Chevrolet pickup was discovered rusting away in a small eastern North Carolina town. The 1960 model year introduced the third generation pickup that went through the 1966 model year. The base engine introduced in 1963 was a 3.8-liter140-horsepower inline 6. An optional 165-horsepower 4.8-liter six was available. Chevrolet did away with the curved windshield in 1963, making it easier to differentiate the 1964 through 1966 models. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1956) — This 1956 Chevrolet needs some love to get it out of the neglected and abandoned category. It was spotted in eastern North Carolina behind a body shop garage. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1960) The 1960 Chevrolet Corvair was a revolutionary new design from General Motors, the only mass-produced American car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. The Corvair was produced from 1960 through 1969 and included a two-door coupe, convertible, four-door sedan and four-door station wagon. This forsaken copy was discovered living among trash and debris in a junk yard. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1937) — This 1937 Chevrolet one-and-a-half ton work truck was spotted serving as yard art near Santa Fe, N.M. In 1937, Chevrolet introduced new trucks with streamlined styling that many still consider the best designs of the era. (Photo by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET  (Circa 1995) — A two-tone — we are sure the white portion isn't factory spec — fifth-generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo was discovered in a grove of trees in North Carolina. For the 1995 model year, the mid-sized Chevy Lumina was split into two models with the sedan continuing as the Lumina and the coupe reviving the Monte Carlo nameplate. The fifth generation was built through the 1999 model year. Above, an advertisement for the 1995 Monte Carlo.  (Photo by Ralph Gable)


 

CHEVROLET (1940) — A 1940 Chevrolet coupe has been abandoned on a flatbed in eastern North Carolina, perhaps ready for shipment to a junkyard. Chevrolet was restyled for the '40 model year and the changes resonated with the public with 760,000 produced — 38 percent more than 1939 — in three "series" starting at $659 and ranging up to $934 for the top end Special DeLuxe. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1966) — This 1966 Chevrolet Impala has been the object of cannibalization with its engine bay completely gutted. The Impala was redesigned in 1965 and set an annual sales record of more than one million in the U.S. There were some minor styling modifications for 1966 including new horizontal taillights, which replaced two sets of three round lights. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1961) — Jim Prueter found this rather attractive but decaying 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne in a New Mexico field. The Biscayne, built from 1958 through 1972, was the least expensive model in the Chevrolet full-size range. Although the Biscayne was generally a no-frills car, it could be purchased with a big-block V-8. (Photos by Jim Prueter)


CHEVROLET (1967) — This very collectable 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible was discovered rusting away in a salvage yard. There were 76,055 Impala SS models built in 1967 and came with one of several versions of Chevrolet's V-8 engines from a 4.1-liter to the monster 454 cubic inch 7.4 liter. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1959) — This 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup was spotted in a wooded junkyard of old, worn out vehicles. It is one of the Task Force line of pickups built from 1955 through 1959 for Chevrolet and GMC. Chevrolet introduced its innovative small block 265 cubic-inch V-8 in the Task Force series. The new modern styling as well as the innovative V-8 made Chevrolet the best selling truck brand for the second half of the 1950s. (Photo by John Harper)


CHEVROLET (1953) — A beaten and battered 1953 Chevrolet was found peering out of heavy overgrowth in Wilson County, North Carolina. The Chevy got a new design for '53 including the debut of a one-piece windshield. Total car production that year was 398,028. Prices started at $1,524 for a business coupe and topped out at $2,273 for a Townsman eight-passenger wagon. (Photo by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1950) — This 1950 Chevrolet was discovered in rather good condition living in a field in New Mexico. In 1950 the Chevrolet two-door Styleline Special started at $1,390 and came with an inline six-cylinder engine making 92 horsepower. (Photo by Jim Prueter)


CHEVROLET (1961) This 1961 Chevrolet Impala bears the inscription "Jim Rathman Chevrolet" with the number 11. Rathman was a well-known race car driver and the winner of the 1960 Indy 500. A native of Florida, Rathman opened a Chevrolet dealership with his winnings. This rare Chevy was spotted in Stark, Fla. The Chevy was restyled for 1961 with a trimmer, more flowing design. (Photo By Ralph Gable)


CHRYSLER (1946-1948) — The Chrysler Windsor was a full-sized sedan built by the Chrysler Corporation in the U.S. from 1939 through 1961. The 1942 Windsor under went a refreshening after the war for the 1946 through 1948 model years. It came with a four-speed manual transmission and a 114-horsepower inline 6-cylinder engine. This example of the 1946-48 models seems to be in restorable condition getting some protection from the elements inside a shed. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1938) — This relatively well preserved 1938 Chevrolet two-door sedan, minus a rear window and sporting a smashed-up grille, was discovered in Ellendale, N.D. The Chevrolet was redesigned for the 1937 model year, so styling changes were few for 1938, but did include a reworking of the grille. The volume-leader in 1938 was the Master DeLuxe Town Sedan, which sold for $750. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1959) — The most interesting aspect of the 1959 Chevrolet was its "bat wing" fins, which took the popular late-50s tail fin design in a slightly new direction. This copy is slowly rusting away in a western North Carolina yard. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1949-50) — This 1949-50 Chevrolet work truck has been stored away, it's useful life long ended. This style Chevy came with several straight six engine configurations in three-quarter ton format and commanded new-vehicle prices ranging from $1,060 to $1,435. The Chevrolet truck was restyled in 1947, the first all-new truck since before World War II. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1957) — This 1957 Chevrolet station wagon has been stripped of its manhood (i.e. engine) and has been left to rust into oblivion behind an auto repair shop. The '57 Chevy is one of the most sought-after classic cars. It was available in two-and four-door sedan formats, two- and four-door hardtop, convertible, station wagon and delivery vehicle. It came with a choice of an inline 6 and two V-8 engines making 140, 162 and 185 horsepower respectively. More than 1.5 million copes were sold. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET — This shell of a 60s-something Chevrolet Corvette was spotted in a grove of trees outside San Diego. Perhaps someone had plans for it that never materialized. And we figure it might still be resurrected into a useful commodity. (Photo by Jim Meachen)



CHEVROLET (1963) — This 1963 Chevrolet Impala looks in restorable condition as it deteriorates in a North Carolina yard. Chevrolet's advertising catch phrase for 1963 was "Jet Smooth," perhaps because the popular full-sized Chevy was restyled with a new grille, bumpers, hood, sculptured side panels, and rear deck contours. The Impala was Chevy's top-of-the-line with the most popular engine choices the small-block 283-and-327-cubic-inch (4.6 and 5.4 L) V8s. (Photo by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1968) — The Chevy II/Nova compact car was first built from 1962 through 1979. The Nova was the top model in the Chevy II lineup through 1968 when the Chevy II nameplate was dropped in favor of Nova. This 1968 model rests in retirement in the weeds of an abandoned farmyard in eastern North Carolina. The Chevy II was popular in 1968 with 201,000 sold with a price range of $2,222 to $2,419. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1969) — The Chevrolet Suburban has the distinction of being the longest continuous nameplate in the world. The first model hit the market in 1934 as a 1935 model. This fixer-upper is a seventh-generation1969 model and the last generation of the three-door Suburbans. A second door was added to the passenger side with the first eighth-generation Suburban in 1973. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1969) — Even the For Sale sign appears abandoned on what's left of this late '60s Chevrolet C/K pickup. Two inline 6-cylinder engines and a variety of V-8 engines were available in the late '60s. Manual transmission were of three or four gears and automatics were of either two-speed or three-speed configurations. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1973/74) — This 1973/74 Chevrolet Nova was found in a state of retirement in a North Carolina weed field. The Nova was built from 1962 through 1979 and again in a different format from 1985 through 1988. It went through four generations before ending production in 1979. Four engines were available in 1973 including two 350-cubic-inch V-8s, one of which was under the hood of the pictured model. A two-barrel carburetor version made 145 horsepower and 255 foot-pounds of torque. A bigger four-barrel carburetor version pumped out 175 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque. The car proved popular in the '70s with 369,509 copies sold in 1973 and 390,536 in 1974, the peak year of its 18-year production run. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1941) This Georiga "yard art" was spotted near Albany, Ga., by automotive writer and photographer Jeffrey Ross. On the left is a 1941 Chevrolet pickup, dramatically restyled for 1941 with combination horizontal and vertical grille bars. One new feature of the Chevrolet pickups was a crank-open windshield for ventilation. We are not sure of the car brand, but it was from the late '30s. (Photos by Jeffrey Ross)


CHEVROLET (1949 or 1950) — Chevrolet restyled its pickup truck in 1947, the first all-new truck since before World War II. The truck was an immediate success and remained relatively unchanged until 1954 when it got its first front-end restyling. Styling cues tell us this truck is either a 1949 or 1950 model. Over one million Chevy pickups were built from 1947 to 1955, which is one reason they are easy to spot rusting away behind a barn or garage. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1939) — This 1939 Chevrolet rests in the Wisconsin snow minus its headlights. The 1939 Chevrolet was a continuation of a new generation that hit the showrooms as a 1937 model. Styling changes for '39 included a revised grille treatment.  Prices started at $628 for the Master 85 coupe and ranged up to $883 for a Master DeLuxe station wagon. Chevrolet sold 577,278 copies in 1939, down significantly from 1937 sales of 815,420, but more than the 1938 total of 465,156. (Photos by Jerry Brown)


CADILLAC — This circa 1990-1992 Cadillac Brougham, stretched into a limo, has apparently been permanently parked in a grassy field in eastern North Carolina, its service no longer needed — or wanted. We are sure New Year's Eve partiers and young and excited high school prom participants spent many happy hours inside. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1955) — The 1955 Chevrolet was a turning point for the manufacturer, the first successful Chevrolet with a V8 engine. Though Chevrolet had produced another car with a V-8, the 1938, it had remained in production for only a year. The '55's looks, power and engineering made it a critical success. This copy lives in an overgrown field in eastern North Carolina. (Photo by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1963) — No wonder it's easy spot a 1963 Chevrolet still on the road, in a junkyard, or rusting away in a field. More than 1.3 million Chevrolet sedans, coupes and convertibles were sold in 1963, which dwarfs today's cars when the "best-selling" title usually goes to a model that can rack up 400,000 sales. These three 1963 Chevys were found near Havelock, N.C. The 1963 model lineup was Biscayne, Bel Air and Impala with prices ranging from $2,322 to $3,170. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET — This early 1950s Chevrolet is decaying in a Colorado car graveyard. In 1950 the Chevrolet two-door Styleline Special started at $1,390. The upscale Bel Air hardtop moved the price up to $1,740. The two available inline six-cylinder engines came with 92 and 105 horsepower and with a three-speed manual or an optional two-speed Powerglide automatic. (Photo by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET (1964) — A new Chevrolet pickup body style was introduced in 1960 and was built through 1966. This 1964 example, complete with a couple of engines stored in the bed and resting in the tall grass in eastern North Carolina, is a stepside model. The pickup came with a base 3.8-liter 140-horsepower inline 6. An optional 165-horsepower 4.8-liter six was available. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1951) — The magazine ad above tells people to "See the USA in your Chevrolet" and this 1951 Chevy's journey has apparently come to an end in Cortez, Colorado. (Photo by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET (1937) — This Chevrolet Master Business Coupe was photographed rusting away in a residential section of Savanah, Ill. The business coupe during the '30s, '40s and '50s was a popular model for Chevrolet. (Photos by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET — A deteriorating 1948-1953 era Chevrolet half-ton pickup was discovered in "retirement" beside a barn in South Dakota. Chevrolet's post-war restyled "Advance Design" truck was introduced in 1947 as a 1948 model and was little changed in appearance through 1953. (Photos by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET (1950) — A 1950 Chevrolet, minus its wheels, rests in front of a lineup of equally rusting and stripped-down vehicles on Route 66 at the Arizona-New Mexico border. The 1950 Chevrolet was the most popular vehicle in America that year, with more than 1 million cars and trucks sold. 1950 was a record-setting year for auto sales as the industry was finally in full swing after civilian production had gone on hiatus during World War II. (Photo by B.J. Overbee)


CHEVROLET (1962, 1963) — These rusting Chevrolet trucks, a 1962 model on the left and a 1963 on the right, were found deteriorating in an eastern North Carolina field. The 1963 can be identified with its egg-crate grille appearance. Chevrolet was king of the hill in the early '60s with 483,119 pickups built in 1963, one-third of all the light-duty trucks produced in the U.S. that year. (Photo by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1958) — The preferred family hauler of the 50s and 60s? The station wagon. This 1958 Chevrolet, which has been put into "retirement," was one of the most popular wagons. (Photo by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET (Early '80s) — This used-up Chevrolet Monte Carlo is burdened with junk. (Photo by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1969) — This 1969 Chevrolet C/K pickup truck needs some tender, loving care. The second-generation C/K came in two inline 6-cylinder and three V-8 configurations for 1969, the top engine the 396-cubic-inch. It was in the late '60s that General Motors began to add comfort and convenience items to the vehicle line that before had been built just for work purposes. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (late '40s) — A late Chevrolet work truck decays in a field of other used up equipment. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1956) — This neglected 1956 Chevrolet was found behind a storage shed in western Virginia. "The Hot One is Even Hotter" was the advertising slogan that Chevrolet boasted for its 150, 210 and Bel Air series in 1956. With a new Super Turbo Fire V8, the 1956 promised a friskier, sweeter ride with safer passing. Five engines were available including a 140-horsepower inline six and four V-8 engines topping out at 225 horsepower. Chevrolet was the best selling car in the U.S. that year with 1,567,117 sales, topping Ford by 150,000 units. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHEVROLET (1966) — There may still be some life in this Chevrolet. (Photo by Jim Meachen)

CHEVROLET — Dashboards of dead cars — A Chevy Impala, left, and a 1973 Chevy Camaro.


CHEVROLET — Can this 1950/1951 Chevrolet truck be considered abandoned? In very good shape, it was sitting off old Route 66 apparently abandoned, at least for the time being. (Photo by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET — We're guessing about a 1957 Chevrolet pickup, shot near the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.  (Jim Meachen)


CHEVROLET (1960) — The Chevrolet Corvair, built from 1960 through 1969, was a unique car for its time. It was the only American-designed mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. This 1960 example of a Corvair coupe still looks restorable. The Corvair also came in three other body styles — a convertible, sedan, pickup, and station wagon. (Photo by Ralph Gable)


CHRYSLER IMPERIAL — One of the most luxurious cars of the late '50s was the Chrysler Imperial. Only the back two-thirds of one of those Imperials remains in a Colorado field. Above, the glorious Imperial, from a 1959 Chrysler brochure. (Photo by Jerry Brown)


CHRYSLER (1951) — The 1951 Chrysler was the first to be powered by the Hemi V-8, although it was known as the Fire Power V-8 as depicted in the 1951 magazine advertisement above. The 331-cubic-inch engine made 181 horsepower. This abandoned Chrysler, still looking in good form, was found in eastern North Carolina. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CHRYSLER (1967) This 1967 Chrysler Newport Custom was found near Winchester, Tenn. Chrysler revived the Newport name in 1961 to fill the price gap between Chrysler and Dodge that was created when DeSoto was discontinued. New to the Newport line for 1967 was a more luxurious Newport Custom series available in four-door pillared and hardtop sedans, along with the two-door hardtop. The Newport was available with a 270-horsepower V-8 or an optional 440-cubic-inch V-8 making 325 horsepower. (Photos by Jim Meachen)


CLARK RV — A late '60s or early '70s Clark RV has probably seen its last duty as a travel vehicle and may spend the rest of its life as a modified storage room for business supplies in Washington state. (Photo by Jerry Brown)


CHEVROLET (1953) — Can a 1953 Chevrolet be "abandoned" if it's on display in the trees? This Chevy rides high on two poles in eastern North Carolina. (Photo by Ralph Gable)
