    Here's some pictures of my '32 plymouth.

    This was a pasture find, and since I am a bit of a mopar freak and most of what my husband and I collect are Fords and their parts, I was super excited to say the least!

    The motor is a 331 Hemi with the extended bell housing. The tranny is a ford 3 speed top loader with a wilcap adapter and hydraulic throwout bearing. The top and seat were hand sewn by yours truly. Almost everything I could get my hands on got holes drilled into it. The frame is original, the seat pan I bought at an auction sale and came out of a 47 chevy....I know, I know.... cross breeding...

    More photos as I get them uploaded.....

  2. Pretty cool car!

    One thing nice about Plymouths is that they're really roomy inside compared to a lot of other cars back then.

    Super project and with you doing the work yourself (looks like hubby is helping but you don't have to admit that:)) it's even more special. Is that your home shop? If so it looks like there is little you aren't able to handle "inhouse".
    One of the nice things about the Mopars is they look chopped without having to get out the sawzall. Keep us updated on the build.

    Excellent, but we do need to find you a Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth grille shell a 33-34 Dodge stuff collector, I can say they are scarce and expensive, but well worth the hunt....(and no sorry I don't have any)...

    Its really nice to see more of these mopar products being built into trad rods.

    Keep it up! Looks great!
  11. Looks like you actually have a '33-'34; the '32s have conventional doors, I believe. I love the '33-'34s, I have one myself I am making a roadster pickup out of. See the link below:

    Lucky you have a lot of the parts you need, I had hell finding doors.
  12. I believe you have a 33 or 34; 32's came in 2 styles, a PA & a PB,and had suicide doors....PA's were leftover 31's........think they were all 3 windows, 33 & 34's were all 5 windows like yours, ...someone correct me if I'm wrong.................nice project, looks super solid,..and that (binder?) grille looks OK on there.
    I got a 32 DeSoto 3 window coupe, (same as 32 Plymouth body) that will get a 318/tourqueflight; ...wish mine was as solid as yours,...and as far along.
    Did you make the deck lid?, looks very nice....if so, how'd you do it?

  13. Richard,,,,I also think it's a 33/34,,,but you are wrong on the 32 PB plymouth coupes,,,,They have doors just like the 32 3-windows. HRP

    Very slick....I'm sure those Radirs will get put to good use behind that 331.

    Yeah, that car looks like it's going to be pretty rad. The engine is getting me all excited about my own 331. And the Log manifold is just the hot fudge on top of the ice cream!

    Okay so I am really flippin' out right now over all the info on the 32 versus the 33-34 cars. Right away when we picked this one up, we weren't even aware it was a Plymouth. The car actually still has the original ID tag inside the door and it is in really great shape, so we took pictures of it and posted it on the web. Several people told us it was a 1932 Plymouth (PB) Coupe. Also, we go to St. Paul every year to Back to the 50's, and for the last 6 years or so, there has been one identical to this one there.... also a 1932 Plymouth 5 window coupe. I am going to take a picture of the ID tag again and post it on here if anyone has the ability to look this up and help me out, that would be great!

    Awesome ride! I think it's possibly a '32 PB. I have a couple of Silver Dome Era Posters and the old black & white one shows a '32 PB rumble seat five window coupe that has suicide doors and that body style. Will you have it ready for the H.A.M.B. Drags?

    I can't tell you if it's a '32 or '33 - but I CAN tell you it's NOT a '34. In '34 they laid the windshield back slightly. If you sight down the leading edge of the door you will notice two distinct angles on a '34. A '33 and earlier there was only ONE angle.

    Cool car no matter what!!!!

    A nice looking car. Plus your doing the work yourself that gets a very big thumbs up.
  28. What about the windshield angle on the trucks, which they made in this same style through the middle of '35? I am building an RPU with a truck cowl and coupe doors; the angle seemed slightly different.

    I agree, it's cool no matter what year; I'd rather have an early Mopar coupe than a '32 Ford(oh, sacreliege!).

    Well....... Okay.... this sucks.....

    A big thank you to Wikster for the website.... I looked it up and the verdict is in:

    "The PC was introduced in the fall of 1932 as a 1933 model (I believe Chrylser's first attempt to move to the now standard model year). "

    So, I have a 1933 Plymouth 5 window coupe..... I guess if I really wanna stretch things so I don't have to change my name.... It was possibly manufactured at the end of 1932..... Oh well, I am still proud of all the hard work we've done and I am more than satisfied with the outcome thus far.

    Thanks again for the debate guys.... at least now I know!

    you dont have ta change yer name - or your avatar - for misrepresentin just cuz yer ride is sumthin else - just enjoy the fact you found a place that can help you get to where ya need to be - and great work on the 33 plymouth!

    but far as misrepresentin goes, ill be the one to bite i guess....
    not sure if anyone caught yer comment on only runnin 2 of them 6 carbs - by the way you stated, sounds like these are the ONLY functioning carbs, and not just your primaries - why go thru building all that drivetrain and sourcing a 6pack carb setup to only run 2 1bbl carbs! not sure how many feel the same, but its like putting a fake blower on their and runnin efi underneath - just dont seem right for this crowd.
    Now if i misunderstood your statement, and you just mean the middle two are your primaries and all 6 are functional units as you lay into the pedal...that sounds right, and my apologies
    otherwise get them all functional or take off the jewelry! just my 13 cents
