    Here’s my 49 Wayfarer. It came to me like this

    A little lower, added disc brakes, 8” Ford rear, and many hours wet sanding the primer off to find the original paint. Add a cream top, some chrome smoothies and ended up here

    A little engine work, 12 volts, yadda yadda yadda.

    Finished this a couple of years ago now and put a lot of miles on it, sometimes as my daily for weeks on end. Still has the fluid drive.

    Very cool so far. I have been studying your pics as I am getting ready to chop mine. Hopefully it looks that good when I am done.

    Either that's a '52 Chevy or it is REALLY customized...

    Herman (7).jpg Herman (8).jpg Herman (5).jpg Herman (4).jpg Not a custom, but does fall into the 49-52 Mopar title. I bought this '50 Dodge panel in 2011. It had 22K on it and was a flower shop delivery truck. Interior was excellent and original. My son Scott "had to have it!" and still owns it to this day. It is still exactly the same and he still drives it around Columbus, Ohio. We fondly named the truck "Herman" because of the high w/s and roof line that reminded us of Herman Munster.

    My first car (had several before) that I got to drive after I got my license was a 52 more door Plymouth. I put a finned aluminum head, two single throat manifold and carbs, had my local muffler guy do a 4 and 2 split manifold, black vinyl tuck and roll, a weird floor shifter that had first where reverse should normally be, it already had heated front coils, and man I was on top of the world for a 15 year old punk kid. I traded it in for my first 55 Chevy hardtop. 30 years later I got to be friends with the lot boy where I traded it in through my sons' soccer team. He bought it and kept it for about ten years, then sold it. We both would love to find that car again. I've always had a soft spot for these cars, and that green Suburban wagon makes me drool.

  16. Does the one in my avatar count? It's my 1950 Chrysler Windsor. My dad bought it from the original owners widow in February of 1968. And I claimed it imedeately. I wasn't 10 till August, but, I have had it ever since. Mechanically stock except for a re-wire. Still 6 volts, fluid drive semi-automatic transmission, The first engine my dad taught me to rebuild on. I'm slowly trying to give it the love it needs body wise and will re-do the paint in royal blue single stage with fresh flames.

    Yeah, that's a really cool picture!! I learned how to drive stick when I was 11 in Grampa's '40 Plymouth sedan. (Hey, how'd that Packard get in there... somebody call a cop!)
