    SHHHH!!!! Keep it a secret, you don't want to buy parts for your Mopar from people who sell NOS Lucky Strikes too, do you??

    Gotta love those Chevrolet Lowrider folk!

    The story on this 48 is that it was originally purchased by the govt of Egypt. It was there for 40 years then came back to the states. It has 2 stickers on the dash that say 'AAA' of Egypt.

    Good looking car.
    Did this car come with no stainless side trim. I dont see a gap where the fender trim would go into the headlight trim. At least not from that pic.

    A friend of mine welded a piece from another ring to fill the gap when I removed the fender stainless on my 48. Looks factory.

    Thanks for the compliment! The gap is there - trim has been removed. The rear fenders are molded to the body too which I don't care for. I'd prefer the side trim too - at least the trim and fender work can be retured to original.

    I can't tell for sure, but the cowl seam looks like it's been filled. Also, looks like the rockers were extended to meet the bottom of the fenders.

    I never really cared much for Plymouths until recently. I neither thought positively or negatively about them. But here recently I've taken a liken to em. I even bought one. With it being a 1954 it is too new to be posted here in this thread.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    In my opinion the stock and mildly modified Plymouths look the best. Thanks to everyone who posted pictures. <o:p></o:p>

    Bin a while since this thread has been used so thought I would bring it to the top and see if a few more 46-48 Plymouths have jumped on the H.A.M.B.
    Here is a resent Picture of my 48 in San Diego.
