FORD (1928-19310 — Ford Model A, the successor to the historically successful Model T, was built for only four model years (1928-31), but sold nearly 5 million units in that short time. One copy — still barely surviving — was discovered by Peter Hubbard for his Junkyard Dog collection.

Abandoned Car of the Week

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)

Abandoned Car of the Week

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.

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)

EDSEL (1958) — This 1958 Edsel is part of Peter Hubbard's Junkyard Dog collection, discovered in a junkyard that includes a large number of decaying models from the 1950s and 1960s. The Edsel was conceived as a model to bridge the gap between Ford and the more upscale Mercury-Lincoln brands. But it bombed out, surviving for only three model years. (Photo by Peter Hubbard)
