    The local scrapyard has a Plymouth beside the scales.
    The guy has a soft spot for the old ones, so he sets them aside for awhile until ....... it’s time.

    I’ve seen it from the highway about 200 yards. All I can tell is it’s a 40s Tudor sedan.

    It can be had for scrap price.

    I have no affiliation with the yard but if someone is interested, really interested, I could swing by and get some photos.

    The car is about 20 miles North of Birmingham Al.

    We love pictures! Especially if it involves saving something from the crusher. Thanks for the post! I bet someone here will adopt the old girl.

    That picture is pretty small, but it doesn't look like a Plymouth to me. The Dodge fender lines carried farther into the doors where the Plymouth fender lines ended at the front edge of the doors.
    Although, the front end doesn't look right, maybe that is a GM car? Gene

  7. Yep, that's a 1940 Plymouth, would be a shame to see it go to Valhalla, there are better ones around no doubt but its been able to avoid the crushers for 80 yrs and is still good rodding or resto material or even as a parts source.......I'd be happy with the fenders & hood for spares but its a bit far to post them to me here in Oz.....all Oz 1940/41 mopars were based on the 1940 Plymouth.....my 1940 Dodge uses the fenders, hood, head & taillights & bumpers..........surely its worth more than its scrap value?.........andyd

    Man if that wasn’t half a nation away from me...
    It’s even got Cragers on it. Body looks to be decent.

    There's a lot of usable parts there if the car itself is too far gone. Shame to see it get squashed.

    Sure have. But dang, I just got rid of some and still look like Sanford and Son in the back yard.
    I do see that with a chop. A little more in the back. Would take some work but laying the rear deck area down to match the new roof slope would be a must.
     
  13. That isn't a bad looking start really.

    What is Alabama's requirements for titling a project like that. There always seems to be a dozen threads about some forgot old girl in the woods or behind the barn or where ever. And then there is a dozen threads on how to get a title or registration. Would hate to see the old girl get crushed either and wish the powers that be would just understand that we are trying to save a piece of history. hope someone can use all or part of her. Larry

    My bus came from a Bama scrap yard. They gave me a bill of sale. Got it notarized, then got an officer to verify the vin. Took the bill of sale and vin verification to the dmv. Done

    If you can buy it for scrap price, then do it. You can always sell it back to the scrapper later.

    Well that's sounds as easy as it can get. Wisconsin requires a bonded title. Not a terrible process either , but more often than not people try getting one some other way. So Alabama is easy, no reason for that old girl to end up as recycled China steel, Someone get down there and save her!

    It also depends on your DMV. Ours is cool.
    I am starting to look into the bonded title process.

    what's the matter with china steel? there'd only be about half of the 32 fords on the road today if it wasn't for that steel.
     
  27. The problem with China steel is all of the profit goes to China and makes them stronger and us weaker. We need to keep it home.

    Just a "Heads Up" in case anyone is interested. Harry's U-Pull-It has a 1941, and a 1950 Plymouth in their inventory. I'm not associated with them in any way, but I did notice these vehicles in their inventory. Maybe someone here will be interested. This seemed like a good place to post this, instead of starting a new thread.

  29. As low as scrap prices are- the air cleaner alone will get you more that half your money back :D

    The car has some rust out as some of the pictures show.
    It will need new floors.
    It will need new door bottoms.
    It will need rockers.
    Core support and front cross member needs repair.
    As far as I can tell the frame looks sound other than that front crossmemember (typical of Mopars of this era).
