Saab Sonnett III. This car was complete, fairly straight and rust free. Interior was a bit sunbaked but it could have been a good project.
Crosley. I admittedly don't know enough about them to tell you the year or the model, but Crosley vanished from the U.S. market in 1952 so that's your timeframe. This was fairly gutted but still had useable panels. Either way, a rare sight.
1972 Fiat 124 Special. As far as Italian cars go, the Fiat 124 is pretty common. However, 124s are common, but that's only the Spider variant. The 124 Sedan is fairly rare and I've only personally seen a handful in Utah. This one was in rough shape: interior needed work, the body was rusty and worst of all, the automatic transmission was slipping. It could have been a good project for the $300 asking price.
