    Here's my 47 convertible, in the UK.
    It's running a 51 Dodge motor, with Fenton head, Sharp dual-carb intake, Fenton headers through dual pipes and a Dodge overdrive transmission.
    The body is stock apart from the fender skirts with 41 Buick trims, 39 Plymouth hubcaps and blue-dot tail lamp lenses.
    I love it!

    My 48 Plymouth business coupe was a rust bucket. Its currently sitting on a 90 Dakota frame. The car is basically a Dakota with the 48 body shell dropped on it. Its still in progress. The final vision is to be a street version of a mid 60s dirt track racer like they raced here locally back then. Gene

    FWIW, to my eye the post-war Plymouths are handsome cars when they aren't heavily modified (body wise) and all or most of the trim is retained. Seem to not take well to customizing and that wide, flat roof generally does not look ''right'' when chopped. But hey, that's probably just me.

    I love the way they look unchoped as well. But when done right they can look killer. I have the new rear-end in with skirts and visor now. Baby steps but still moving forward.

    Nice car. How did you get it to sit so low for being stock. I'd like to drop my 48 down a couple more inches.

    Finally, a site I've been hoping for. I felt like an orphan owning a 48 Plymouth. Most people just walk past it at car shows because its not a ford or chevy. We put the same love and hard work in our Plymouths, also. Thanks, for showing your Plymouths.

    Your coupe is sweet Dons48. I to feel the same way you do however, i do see a lot more late 40s plymouths around at shows lately. To lower the front i cut 2 spins out of the coil spring and used 4in lowering blocks in back. I had to make them do to the leaf spring only 2in wide. 2x4 1/4in iron will do the trick. Here is side shot of the car.
