    An Aunt of mine just sent me this old photo of my Dad, taken while he was in high school. He Graduated in '40, so I'm thinking late 30's Mopar? Maybe G.M.?

    Don't know what he's driving, but it looks like he is playing pocket pool while packing a colt 45.......
     
  10. Is he looking to road rage on someone with that heater of his?

    Don't think its a rumble seat. The trunk handle is at the bottom not the top like a rumble lid would be.

    the trunk lid isnt all the way down like a plymouth
     
  17. it's not a 36 plymouth as the bumper guards are different and the tailight looks to be different. the trunk lid is wrong and rear window does look to be GM.

    The odd trunk lid is because they came with a Continental type spare mount. I think the roadster version did have a rumble.
    1935 Chrysler Airstream Coupe.
