    A special order through fleet sales. A lot of different agencies bought similiar vehicles. Forestry Service, etc. Does yours have the one piece lift-up rear door or conventional tail-gate?

    No plants inside, that's a little algae on the window and side of car.
    Just the one hood sitting there.
    It has an 8BA hooked up to all original running gear, everything is there including the spare tire and tools. I'm hoping everything under the car is still useable. I brought it home but have to wait until my new shop is built before I get a good look under it.

    Stopped by a local scrap yard, got the word that this was the last old car in the yard and it was on it's way out. Grabbed as much off of it as I could, but not a whole lot worth grabbing.

    Yup, a '51, so it didn't have the cool bumper guards, but it did have the cool grille bar, albeit beat to absolute shit. I still grabbed it, if it can't be straightened it'll at least make a cool wall hanger. It also had a (factory iron) finned head that says Kaiser SuperSonic on it, that's another wall hanger. A few other bits of trim and whatnot, that was about it. The back doors fell off it, it was that rotten.

  10. Not 1950 Plymouth as the taillight assembly is completely different.

    I agree, the stone guards are Plymouth and the '49 tail lights sit on top of the rear fenders which you'd be able to see (although they might just be missing).

    Here is the 1949 Dodge with the same taillight assembly.... 1949 Dodge Coronet.jpg

    Appears to be a DeLuxe, judging by chrome on rear door.

    GreenMtnMan,

    That's a '49 or '50 Dodge or Plymouth. Somebody will respond shortly with the details. If you weren't so far away I would be interested in that grill if it's not beat up too badly.

  17. 1950 Plymouth.

    I think the grille has several bullet holes in it. There's also a 1956 Chevy, and another unknown car. On that one the left and right exhaust manifolds join at the front of the engine.

    Could have been used for a lot of different things with that platform on top - camping with a tent, movie camera platform, carrying who knows what....

    That looks like a great project 1937 Willys Coupe. Is that the one that belonged to Red Dawson?
