    I could use a hand (eye) to figure out what these two cars are.

    I know the 5 window is a plymouth, but not sure if it's a '35 or a '36 (is there a difference?)

    I was told the blue 3 window is a chevy, but I have no clue what year.

    Please don't ask me all kinds of questions about them, I just want to know what I'm looking at. These are the only pics I have.

    Thanks.

    wow, a packard? hmmm, interesting...
    The guy told me he thought it was a chevy, I had no clue, so I spent 3 hours on carnut attempting to find something that matched.

    He has some really different stuff there, but packard was one I didn't check.

    Thank you LOWCAB

    This one I think is a 37/38 plymouth because the headlight pods mount off the grill shell.

    This one is a 36 plymouth because the headlight buckets mount off the fenders.

    He's not asking an arm and a leg, but he's not letting them go cheap, and he's not in a hurry to sell.

    I didn't think the 37/38's had provisions for cloth tops.... Plus those doors look too short to be 37/38. That being said the front end does look to be 37.

    Hi, The last picture in the first group is a Packard, it is a 36 or 37. As far as the Plymouth, it is a composit. It is a 35 body, with a 37 nose. Hope that helps.

    Great info, thanks 30dodge! Unfortunately I'm about 150 miles from the car, but I will take the info with me if I make the trip.


    THIS is why I love this place.
