36 plymouth

I am from Wanganui in New Zealand. I have owned a 1936 4 door plymouth for about 10 years and had planed to restore it to original condition but have now decided to modify it, change all running gear including suspension, steering and brakes. I own my own mechanical workshop but have not carried out these type of modifications before. Any help would be great. I understand a cheaper option is to buy a donor vehicle. What am I looking for? Or am I better off to buy new steering and suspension parts? if so where from.

WELCOME TO Hotrodders.com

You folks sure have some interesting vehicles in New Zealand and Australia ... the Utes and other cross breeds . I do not know what all is available in New Zealand ... but over here in the USA A lot of rodders find them a late 60's Plymouth or Dodge and take the engine, transmission and rear end for their projects. A lot of Plymouth guys want their Plymouths ... ALL PLYMOUTH



They can be made into a good looking rod that gets a lot of attention at the shows ...

Nice Plymouth Deuce! I have a 37 four door slant back. Your car sets really nice. Mine is set up similar to yours in the frint w/ a Must II from Fatman but the rear is still supported on the original (stock) springs bolted under a 72 Camero rear end. Did you tub the rear wheel wells to get the wheels to tuck inside the fenders? Mine sets a bit high. I'd like to lower the rear about 1.5 - 2 inches. Also, did you notch the frame or did you mount the axel under the leafs? Of course, I'm assuming you are using parallel leafs.

Oops! Sorry! What was I thinking? Just a little Mopar Mania I guess.
