FORD (1964-1965) — This 1964/65 Ford Thunderbird was found in a yard full of old used-up cars on Route 66. We have for years thought the fourth-generation (1964-1966) the best designed four-place Bird in its long history. Its squared-off look moved away from earlier Thunderbirds. (Photo by Jim Prueter)

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 post-war Nash 600 (circa 1946) was found resting safely behind a fence next to a building in the Detroit area. The Nash 600 is credited with being the first mass-produced American automobile using unitized body/frame construction techniques in which the car body and the frame are welded as one unit, rather than the more traditional body-on-frame. Built from 1941-1949, the "600" name comes from the car's ability to go 600 miles on one tank of gas. An advertisement for the '46 proclaimes "The new Nash 600 takes you an amazing 25 to 30 miles on a gallon of gasoline at moderate highway speeds — 500 to 600 miles on a tankful."

CHEVROLET (1935) — This 1935 Chevrolet work truck was discovered in Nevada. At the heart of 1930s era trucks was a Chevy inline-six-cylinder engine, which earned names like “Cast Iron Wonder” and “Stovebolt” for its rugged design. First produced in late 1928, the new engine had a modern overhead-valve design. (Photo by Jim Prueter)
