    Draw some eyes in the windshield dirt on that old Dodge, and you got her pegged:D
     

  5. not sure yet, both were running when they were parked and motors still turn,plymouth needed u-joints and the dodge got sold when the old guy died,they got a wash job after they got to the shop,looks better ,might part them out but first want to get them running [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  6. why part them out? they look like pretty decent builders.
     
  7. still debating on that, bought a guys collection of mopars so i'm jammed up w/cars,lol

    whereabouts in nebraska did ya find those? i grew up over in council bluffs and even in the 70s, it seemed like all the good stuff was rusted right up to the beltline. my cuz had a 72 chevelle and by 75, the quarters were GONE!

    Meadowbrook?? I had a '50 Meadowbrook in 2001.
     
  16. i'm about 12 miles east of Grand Island,seems like these old mopars are starting to pop up and since they cheap right now i'm buying as many as i can afford,the dodge has a perfect dash in it,not a flaw i can find,i've run into some rust buckets but been pretty lucky lately
     
  17. What other kind of mopars did you pick up in the collection you got???

    Man... those old Mopars bring back memories...My Dad had a '52 Chrysler,and my Mom had a green Plymouth 4door, a lot like that one. They all pretty much looked the same. I learned to drive in them when I was 13. Fluid drive= almost automatic.
