    I bought this car as a project a few years ago.
    The previous owner already did the chop and the 4/2 door conversion.
    His plan was to build it for his shop, but plans changed, shop closed, and the project had to go..

    Pascal, A good friend of mine helped me alot with the build.
    The floor needed some new metal.
    Pascal also changed the B and C-pillars, they were very rough.
    Technical is the car original, only changed from 6v to 12v.
    I'll keep the flat 6.

    I hope to get it on the road this year.

    Here are some pics from the previous owner.

    Here's a picture of the car and it's first owner. (in the Netherlands)
    This is the only picture of the car the family found, with the family and the owner (dancing) in front of the car.
    Unfortunately the license plate is not visible, it still wears the original license plate.

    That is just an outstanding looking Dodge!!! The chop and flow of the car are perfect. Most all MoPars have potential if well planned/thought out. Thanks for sharing.

    Very rare...very cool ! Those '54 Dodges' that are left here in the U.S.A. are rare enough...let alone one in the Netherlands !!

    Great job...good luck with it from here on out !

    Thanks guys!!!

    Yeb, it took a while before starting this treat, I thought it's time to share ;-)
    It's very cool to see other '53/'54s Dodges and Plym's, there are not that many.
    Show em, if you got em!

    Keep you posted!
    Cheers, Ruben
