A Flatbed Ford Is on the Corner in Winslow, Arizona

A park commemorates a verse from the '70s Eagles' tune, and it's been drawing tourists since the late '90s.

1960 or so F-500 is clean and at least cosmetically restored. Nose emblem has a lightening bolt, indicating there's an inline 6 under the hood.
