    Been wanting to do a mild custom build for a while now, so been looking around for something in my budget and came across this 1950 Plymouth out in Kansas for cheap

    After some wheeling and dealing i went down and picked her up .

    I have a 26,000 mile 6 cylinder and 3 speed trans( and other parts ) out of a 53 Plymouth that could be bought pretty cheap. Hasn't run for a few years but it spins free and is complete...

    I really like the wheel covers you have.
    I'd detail the centers with paint (Champagne gold?), maybe bronze wheel rims (or vice verse), and something like a '59 Lancer spinner.
