Few pics of a 48 plymouth semi completed

Here are some pics of my bosses 48 plymouth after it was painted and tossed back together. We still have to chrome all of his handles and such, also waiting on trim but its his daily driver so hes driving it while we wait. Let me know what you think.

Thanks mike

Hey thanks alot right now his car is "completed" and my dad (user Woodys_towing) is getting ready to start a build on his. He has two rolling chassis and tons of parts so i guess the same goes out to you if you need it he may have it. Im going to try to set up a project journal for my dad anytime i get over there ill update it for him.

I only took a couple of pics of his car but more to come after trim.

what hes got

My dad has a 47 and 48 plymouth special deluxe 6 4 door sedans. The 48 is pretty complete just needs love. The 47 is more a rolling chassis but came with boxes of goodies. And to answer your question yeah other than the one my boss owns ive never seen another in our area. And he bought it from an older gentleman that had been kinda garage keeping it hoping to finish it one dad when he up and decided to buy and old pickup and sell the car. Me and my dad picked the one up here from an old air force base (the 48)and the other he went to Kentucky to get. He bought some beautiful parts from there and also got a nice rebuilt 39 motor. He was looking more for a prewar plymouth but the 48 kinda fell into his lap and he went from there.

I've seen a lot of old army movies with the plymouths in them ,I think they might have been issued to the army,like jeeps were.heres the the 48 when I bought it,it got a little rust and someone pushed sideways with a truck getting it unstuck from the mudd that tried to reclaim it.also how I got the nick name "DBM" lol

Isnt it funny...

Thats a pretty cool car.What are you doing as far as finishing it(Paint, interior, etc.)? Was the rust your talking about on that rear passenger quarter? His car is in pretty big need of a floor(the 48) but other than a small hole near where the fender bolts on its solid. Its funny to me how people look at a car like those before you start and they think there just killed. I work on so much crap on a day to day basis where theres more rust on moms grocery getter that she wants patched then alot of these old cars and shell look at me like im crazy for wanting to fix my car. I am honest amazed when i look at these old 40's car and see how good of shape they are really for there age. I see so many 80's on up cars that are just rotted to nothing and it just makes me think.......
"they just dont make them like they used to".

the paint plan was hot lava,its like black cherry on steroids.as for the rust,there was just about enough metal left to hold the door handles on all the chrome had fallen off years ago,I rebuilt the whole car from the rockers to the roof,made every piece myself,I've been in the biz for a long time,but finding this much spare time was a little tough.I can drive it now so I'm taking a break and I'm going to have so fun driving...I've kind of grown accustomed to the black primer and dont feel any rush to paint right now,its time to enjoy...heres a couple more...the one that looks like a chared planet or moonscape is my roof.and I live here in Ga (no snow)but my boy and I saw something in this car....I just had to buy it,LOL
