    40 year old new spark plugs

    These are autolite 45 . They are still in the box. Bought from gold circle in the mid 70's. Make an offer. Don't know what they are worth. It says they are good for a maverick with a 302. Ha

    Dad went in a nursing home and mom ask me to clean the garage out. It took me about 5 days. He went to a lot of auctions in the 60's and 70's. Amazing how much stuff he had from wooden block and tackle to hand turned corn grinders. I have a fire place insert but don't have a fire place. He has a lot of " what to hell is this " stuff. I do have a chiltons manual for all cars and it's dated 68 to 72 if anyone is interested. He had 6 quarts of the old oil cans. My sister had a wreck years ago and dad had some of the old oil cans in her car. They all exploded from the force and covered everything with oil.

    One stop shopping at it's best !!! Everything from bass boats, groceries, furniture, home appliances, swimming pools, home & car stereos, automotive & speed parts, cheap gas, lawn mowers, etc... you name it and they had it at a good price.
