A Crazy – Quilt of a Car Wash

A mishmash of vehicle parts synthesized into one accessible and wacky car wash:  Ford Ranger fenders, a Minneapolis Moline steering wheel and hood badge and a St. Paul police cruiser passenger door.

See These Fenders?

They’re both from the St. Paul Ford plant. But they’re not the same:  one fender came from the first production year of the Ranger truck and the other from the last year. Guess which is which!

MinneapolisMoline

Occupying the land where Target on Lake Street now stands, MinneapolisMoline produced tractors and machinery beginning in 1929. We salvaged a few components including a hood badge and steering wheel.
