 May as well tell it like it is..

Seats 4-dr.. nothing..unless you find a restorer but don't hold your breath..

motor and drive train..check the scrap yard for price on weight for scrap metal..

Running boards.. put them with the drive train to get the weight up a bit..

 

Front fenders..might bring you 25 to 75 if they are good and if you can find a buyer but agin don't save them on your couch, store -em in a safe dry place you might find a buyer I am sure there might be one some-where..

sorry but thats what I see in your little pile ..

just-say'n confuse

engine might be worth $100-$150 with trans but you need to advertise it specifically rather than just "1937 pontiac parts". looks basically complete (dist, carb, gen etc) and appears to be in decent shape (not covered in leaves, mouse nest etc) so its definitely worth something to the right person you just need to advertise it as such to bring it to their attention.


i wouldnt haul it off for scrap just yet.

someone might be interested in the rearend for $100 too. again just need to advertise it so it catches their attention.

try Kijiji and advertise it outside of the area you reside in. they aint making 37 engines/drivetrains anymore so it might be worth the drive for someone if they see your add.

the running boards look worthless and i think youd have a real hard time finding a buyer for that seat.

 X2 on that. I already have what your selling......but it would be a shame to scrap without throwing it out there to help someone else with there project.

Its worth posting on kijiji.

Looked at this car when we were finding a car for me nephew,yes it has a Chevy 216 in it,probably should have been a flathead six originally in a Pontiac! I expect it may be all gone for scrap, the car looked pretty decent when together,but as he started to disassemble it became very obvious that it was heavily rotted in the rear sections and frame.. First build for Derek and I'm afraid it turned him off of old cars .. Let's hope not!

The engine is a 224 and came with the car from the factory here is some information from a old post I had made concerning the engine serial # and block casting

Seems to be a 216 with a 3 9/16? and aluminum pistons here is what i found

However the engine that you have appears to have a casting date code of G-5-7, which suggests July 5th 1937 and therefore a 1937 unit. Candian 1937 Chevrolet engines ran: 

R, C, CR, T or TR as the case may be: 
# 64,201 � 114,000 
172,001 - 172,550 
1,248,501 - 1,248,600 
658,000 - 668,000 
1,053,000 - 1,056,000 

It just happens that I know of a cylinder head in New Zealand cast that same day! The 1937 early Canadian cylinder head was casting # 838355 and the blocks casting # 838101 which I believe is a US number from memory and the unique McKinnon Industries, St Catherines, foundry # 1788201. The block casting date suggest 1937, and the engine # fits in the known 1937 series as well. It cannot have come from a 1937 Canadian Pontiac as they used either the US Pontiac engine or the first of the 224 units, prefixed 'W' for 'Walkerville', oh all right, 'Windsor' but I prefer the original name! The Series 37-26 Six engines ran # W15881 - W22916. The same engine, in 'Truck' form was also used in GMC T-14/16 and F-16 trucks.
