"Plymouth"? That's a 34 Ford grille and fenders. All I can say is it's a mess, geeez.

The frontend has been so highly modified I really can't tell it from a Plymouth or Ford. A lot of fender cut away on the opening, and not sure on the grille after looking at both the Plymouth and Ford images for '34.
I do know I'd like it better with the stock Chevy front fenders and hood.

Matter of personal taste but it is kinda cool and would make a good winter rod when the snow is deep or for picnics in the woods during the summers. Probably more practical than some of the low riders..

The truck has an interesting look to it.

Not original but stills looks good and would make an interesting ride.

I think it is cool, but it is not a 1934 Plymouth Grille. The '34 Plymouth grille and '34 Ford are very close in shape and design but the Plymouth grille is caved in and has a straight line at the top. The Ford is Vee'd and has a curve in the middle at the top

I own one of those trucks and can agree with you a 34 Ford grille is miles above the Chevy, but they don't even come close in matching the front clip to the body, YEOW.

And by the way, changing that Chevy pickup grille to something else is a BEACH. Of course it can be done but the way the hood comes out, and the big flat front, it is a VERY hard swap needed a lot of fab work for anything else to go there.
