It looks like a rust bucket but it's still fully functional, this typical American car from the 1920s. Apparently it was found in this state in a barn in Pennsylvania in 2008, where it had been stored for almost 70 years.
The Chalmers Model 35-C was a sturdy 6 cylinder car which didn't sell very well. In 1921 Chalmers merged with Maxwell and was ultimately bought by Walter P. Chrysler, which then lead to the first Chrysler car in 1924.
