Damn, that's sweet dude!
Damn, what a beauty!
Nice straight body and color; always like the distinct grille of the '38's. (My dad bought
one in 1940, just before being shipped over-seas. It sat on blocks for 5 years until he
So how about some details on yours?
nice ride, great color
Very Very nice ride !!!! Tom (Tired Old Man)
thanks everyone. it's pretty much all original and all metal.guy i bought it from a guy that had it had it 22 yrs in a garage. int is original but seat was redone and car was painted 25 yrs ago. i'm gonna keep it kinda stock for now and keep the flat six but i'm gonna put a dual intake and headers on it and a little chrome. can't wait to cruise
Welcome to the Plymouth world! Nice car you have there. I have a 1938 Plymouth P5 coupe also that I bought from a HAMBer. Original flat head 6, head shaved .09, dual exhaust, repop "fenton" cast iron exhaust manifolds, smithy's mufflers (got that hot flathead sound), dual Offenhauser intake, new modern carbs w/elec chokes, HEI ignition, T5 5speed trans, and a Ford Ranger rear end. Runs great on the highway as long as you dont have a burnt valve caused by overheating! :-( Overheated cuz of a stuck closed thermostat so check that right away! Good luck!
That's a sweet ride you have there.

thanks. you know it's harder on the east coast. i got the offie dual intake,fenton style cast headers also. i have a pair of old carters i'm gonna try. i didn't change it over to 12v yet.you know things take time. do they make a kit to put a newer trannie in and if so how difficult was it. thanks
Great looking coupe!
I like it. Post some larger pics when you get time. Welcome to the club.
Good looking car. Love to see old iron saved and driven.
Nice coupe - one of my favs!
Classy chrome trim on those front fenders too! Humphrey Bogart drives one like yours in the 1946 "The Big Sleep". There he is, double breasted suit, fedora hat and a car like that - life is sweet!!
Nice Coupe Chris!!!
Thumbs up on the color.
It looks really straight, your a lucky man.
Very cool! I just picked up a '38 2dr sedan last week too. 16k original miles!!
I spent alot of time in a 38 coupe that belonged to my fathers friend dave..
yours is nice.. and the color is tops..
having all the trim on the grill is something wonder..
Real nice....I like the color. How about some bigger pics.
I hope you leave it that color, beautiful color. Love the late 30's Mopars. Yours looks like a keeper.
