    No, rear end is tubbed. Used ladder bars and coilovers from speedway.

    There's a bar between the frame rails that the shocks mount to on top.

    Still lots of work to do, planning to put a desoto export grill and a 230 on it as I got this 54 desoto few weeks ago to complete the plymo, and eventually cruise in summer w/o roof haha.

    333B30B7-D385-4A45-9429-66133CCD71E6.jpeg Just picked up this gem at the Portland Auto Swap on Friday. Overall it is pretty sound with minimal rust, all stock and it runs. I appreciate all the post on this thread for custom ideas. I have a couple questions.
    1. The exhaust pipe is rusted out so I am planning to have the exhaust from the manifold back redone. I was looking at a single Cherry Bomb muffler. Would this work well on the stock motor?
    2. I see Fat Man Fab has lowered uprights but it requires updating to disc brakes. Is there a way to lower the car a couple inches with out converting to disc? On a budget.

    Any help is appreciated

    I hope a 49 will be close enough for this thread.

    Here’s how my 49 Dodge looked when I got it about 7 years ago. Just drove the hell out of it but the primered look finally got to me

    After hours of wet sanding the primer off I found a fair amount of original or very old paint

    So after painting the roof an almond color, a little pin striping, new wheels, I ended up with this

    IMG_2841.JPG

    This car has always been a driver, it lives in the street and sometimes in my driveway. It’s my “extra car” per say. When my kid comes home from college she takes my pick up and I drive the 49, sometimes for months. It handles my 70 mile commute with ease as these were really well built cars. Car still has the original fluid drive 3spd manual, 230 flat head with a few intake and exhaust mods. Dual Webers and an 8” rear with 3.00 gears.
