    We have had our 41 plymouth coupe for around 4 years now..Its been on the back burner..I have been working on it for 4or5 months now.I purchased it for my wife..She fell in love with it 7 years ago. Its all original down to paint,interior ect..Still all stock with 6 volt positive ground.Paint is in poor condition but looks good in pics..This was the first show and first drive out of town..This was at Estrella Warbird car show Sat 19th..I lowered the car 3 inches,blocks in rear cut 1 1/2 coils out in front, Tommy Moore hot rods helped with the flush mounted rear skirts and I reworked them a little to fit the way I wanted.. I also have a disc brake kit to install this coming weekend and t5 trans..My wife is in the pic with the car..She was so happy!
