It positively is a 1937 Ford. I fully restored a Deluxe Coupe and sold a 4 dr sedan.The grill is a dead give away!

That big steel wheel is actually a piece of farm equipment. It is called a drive wheel, probably for a reaper or binder. Early farm equipment was ground driven, either pulled by horses or early tractors. As the binder was pulled the lugs on the wheel got traction and powered the machine. Early farm tractors didn't have PTO"s. That wheel could be 100 years old. With the high price of steel, it's a wonder it hasn't gone to the scrap yard.

I love looking at the cars in this photo, but I'm mesmorized by that railroad wheel in the front. My two biggest wants in life: a piece of railroad equipment, and an old car....

Look at stack of model T cowls to the left of the front fender,the one on top is from a closed car. The one on the bottom is a 26-27 open car. top one has steering wheel. bottom one has headlight.

Looks like 37 Ford. Surprising these are still in the woods. These cars are worth a ton of money even in this shape.The cowls would be a great start to put up a rat.
