It looks like a '55 Plymouth but does not have the dashboard shifter. Maybe it is a straight shift car. I had a 55 dodge years ago.

It's a 56, but close enough, it's your floor John. It does have a shifter on the dash just to the left of this photo.

Interesting. I googled this after you gave it to me. The 56 has a different radio pod as well as being push button shift instead of lever on dash. You probably should not have given me that one. I won by being close just like when you play handgernades.

Yeah you're right, I withdraw the floor out from under you. Just kidding, first drive in huh? I KNOW I have seen this someone but I can't for the life of me remember. I know I sure saw a lot of movies in them. I had four of them within 6 or seven miles of my home. A cool little one screener all the way up to I think it was six. When the little one screener closed up I went by on my bike and went into the building. Somewhere in my boxes of treasures I have a foot or so of film from the "It's intermission time" with the dancing soda cups.

Sure was good times for me, some great memories.

By the way this dash is in a four door parts car that my boss bought for his daughters two door wagon, never has done any thing on it and probably won't. Like me he is overwhelmed with all the projects. But damn that two door wagon is pretty cool.

And this parts car, a lot of people would love to have it, nearly rust free, a very solid car.

This is probably something that will have to be researched. I won't be upset if someone googles the answer.

I'm sure we could keep a thread going on our Drive In memories but I am afraid it would not meet Hotrodders.com guidelines. It would, however, make really interesting reading.
