can you make it a hardtop?
1949 Plymouth Town and Country.
Hey Wayne...If the car is a bit boring then brighten up the background...
Looks like a '49 and '54 mayflower had a baby.
I would like to see red oxide primer applied to just the rim (not including the wheel center) of the front wheel. Then another shot with the above plus the center of the wheel center making it look sorta like a target which I don't think I am going to like but I'd like to see it. Thank You
That is some cool technology--thank you very much. Makes the decision easy.
Would like to see the ATV and minivan out of the picture for a buddy and maybe old it up a bit if ya want. As always thanks in advance.
OK...Olded up a bit....
You da best !
My buddy is selling everything but his dad's 56 wagon there, vette is gone already, figured I'd send him a keepsake photo of when he was cool...lol
Hey fellas, it's been a long time since I've been in this thread. Man, you guys really have incredible skill.
I have a request, if y'all would be so kind. I'm having a hard time picturing what this color might have been, so I'll leave it up to the pros, what do you think would have looked best?
The reason I am posting this up is that for a long time I considered doing my 60s era coupe build with black fender just because of this car. I'm just not creative enough to picture what could be.
So, if you guys wouldn't mind, could you give this car your treatment and colorize it to a color you think would look good? I'd be grateful.
Thanks so much,
Just ask Don Moyer, he owns the car..lol
No way! Thanks.
Thanks, Don solved the "mystery".
Maybe this is how it would have looked back in the day..
@themoose very cool. Awesome work!
Wish it was closer and the 55 was cheap, I like what I see of it.
I'm submitting this request on behalf of choptop40, who is in the early stages of building this '51 Chrysler custom.
His modification list includes:
- Some dechroming
- Plum Crazy Flatz paint
- '54 Chrysler or '50 Olds headlights
- Custom taillights (maybe in the bumper?) - Nosed
- Louvered (hood, I assume)
The stock grille won't work with either headlight choice. I'd suggest using the '54 Chrysler headlights AND grille, but remove the clutter in the central opening to create a gaping maw. I hope that makes sense! I've included stock and modified versions for reference.
The original Chrysler bumpers are a bit clunky, in my humble opinion. I would recommend a set of '53 Ford bumpers. The taillights could be incorporated into the stock ford rear bumper guards. No guards on the front, please.
I'm also going to suggest my go-to favorite '56 Lincoln wheelcovers on body-color wheels with medium-wide whites.
I can't wait to see the results, myself!
...can I see this with the body left as is but with 15"black rims, big n littles with wide whitewalls and lowered with a front rake?...thanks in advance...
Can anyone help me out, I’d like to see what my coupe would look like channeled 4-5”? I’m also curious what is would look like in white. Thanks!
I like it as is but that’s me
If it were on a 32 frame I would leave it be. I'm just not in love with A frame rails.

Oooooooh, nice! Thanks for that, Moose!
One more favor: Can you add this skirt? I don't know how they're supposed to fit, but I found this Plymouth with skirts. Hopefully the family relationship makes it accurate for the Chrysler.
I think you might be on to something....
Agreed! Thanks again, Moose! For some reason, it makes me think of the Polynesian.
