    Damn, what a beauty!
  4. Nice straight body and color; always like the distinct grille of the '38's. (My dad bought
    one in 1940, just before being shipped over-seas. It sat on blocks for 5 years until he
    returned home.)

    So how about some details on yours?

    thanks everyone. it's pretty much all original and all metal.guy i bought it from a guy that had it had it 22 yrs in a garage. int is original but seat was redone and car was painted 25 yrs ago. i'm gonna keep it kinda stock for now and keep the flat six but i'm gonna put a dual intake and headers on it and a little chrome. can't wait to cruise

    Hey Chris,

    Welcome to the Plymouth world! Nice car you have there. I have a 1938 Plymouth P5 coupe also that I bought from a HAMBer. Original flat head 6, head shaved .09, dual exhaust, repop "fenton" cast iron exhaust manifolds, smithy's mufflers (got that hot flathead sound), dual Offenhauser intake, new modern carbs w/elec chokes, HEI ignition, T5 5speed trans, and a Ford Ranger rear end. Runs great on the highway as long as you dont have a burnt valve caused by overheating! :-( Overheated cuz of a stuck closed thermostat so check that right away! Good luck!

    thanks. you know it's harder on the east coast. i got the offie dual intake,fenton style cast headers also. i have a pair of old carters i'm gonna try. i didn't change it over to 12v know things take time. do they make a kit to put a newer trannie in and if so how difficult was it. thanks

    Good looking car. Love to see old iron saved and driven.
  16. Nice coupe - one of my favs!
    Classy chrome trim on those front fenders too! Humphrey Bogart drives one like yours in the 1946 "The Big Sleep". There he is, double breasted suit, fedora hat and a car like that - life is sweet!!

    I hope you leave it that color, beautiful color. Love the late 30's Mopars. Yours looks like a keeper.
