    My nephew has a 50 Dodge pick up. Started about being a "gasser look". No engine, but real solid pick up. He hasn't touched in years, but garage kept. May be for sale, but not advertised.

    If you have not started that Aspen clip yet, do yourself a huge favor, and swap in a Dakota frame clip instead. 88-90 Dakota are 5 bolt wheels with 5 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern, and 91-96 Dakotas with the 6 bolt wheels can be changed to 5 bolt by adding the older 5 bolt brake rotors.
    A Dakota front frame matches these trucks a whole lot better then the old cross torsion bar subframes did, I know, I've done both. The Dakota is a lot easier. Gene

I'll be trying to gather parts to put this together. I also have 3 33/34 Dodge trucks in various conditions. One day I'll have enough to actually put one together.

    Standard 40 Plymouth hood, they are cool.
    IIRC, the guy had it listed a couple years back out of Roswell, NM.
    I lusted after it, but didn't have the coin.
    Looks like he swapped rear fenders to '40 also.
    Here's a 41 off the net with the extra triple ribs.

    Here's a '40 with the extra upper ridge

    Here's a pic of one with both sides open.

    Getting geared up to blow this thing apart for a frame up redo. Stock flatty, t5 and 8 1/4 rear end. Pretty much stock otherwise and lowered. 20170408_101718.jpg

    I agree, and to say there are plenty of parts is a shit excuse to run a chevy motor in your old mopar. I get parts for my original flathead from napa.....no problem.

    Was it pretty easy to drop that 392 into your plymouth or did it take awhile? What transmission did you put behind it?

  28. My Chrysler. Cm-6 coupe has gone through several changes over the years. It's gone from a 354 hemi to a new for this year a 498 Keith black. It is a regularly driven street car that participates on drag week. 20130616_200751-1.jpg datauri-file.png 20170713_195132.jpg 20180331_173432.jpg

    My '48 Plym has a Chevelle/Cutlass front clip. The 331 fit in nicely. A bit more involved with OEM front.
