    I traced the serial number, and it was build & sold in So Cal. No telling where it was from 1947 'til 1985 though.

    This car rocks! It's an oddball, but that makes it fun.
    But it's obviously a serious car as well.
    Best of both worlds, IMO.

    My '48 won the "Modified Mopar" class last weekend at the big local area annual car show. There were only two Mopar classes - stock and modified, unlike the Fords and Chevys that seemed to have a separate class for every three years of every model ever produced. I couldn't believe mine won over all the modified Challengers, Chargers, Barracudas, Hemis, you name it.

    The great part - the second place guy had an early 50s Mopar.

    Old school rules !

    Here's another Plymouth that was on the field - the guy who brought it did all the work (7" chop !) himself, and was justifiable proud of his work. He and I are both over 6' tall and fit in his rod with head room to spare. This guy has serious skills. I thought he should have won the class.

    You are probably right, if I squint my eyes, I can visualize it as a roadster, that would show the British how to make a classy looking Post War sports car ...3"section, raise the wheel arches, add Hemi...

    Well that's far more than I'd imagined, but it would be a lot of metalwork to keep you busy. ;)

    I'm wondering what it'd look like with the headlights shaved off smooth & new hidden (flip-over) rectangular lights in the grille?

    Doesn't matter how hard I squint my eyes now, I can't make that modification work for me...
