And if it helps any the parking brake appears to be mounted under the dash to the left of the steering wheel kind of like a 55-57 chey. Just guessing by what appears to be a parking brake cable in the picture, and unless there is linkage missing the carb has to mount pretty low also which means it is prob a 4 or 6 cyl.....

That grommet and bracket are for the bell crank assy for the throttle linkage.

The only american car I know of using an aluminum box was the corvair, but there were apparently others because that is definitely NOT a corvair lol

This maybe the long lost front engine Corvair.

I was referring to his comment on it not having a column shift.

Crash, right year wrong make. I have to tell you guys, I am blown away by this thing and am wondering if it IS some one off or accessory. This car looks stone original, it is now a parts car and the will be cut up which is really a shame because it's damn straight and complete. But this box, I can't find another one like it on the net.

I will have to ask my boss incase I am wrong. But I believe it's a 1956 Plymouth Savoy.



The rear looks just like this with the trunk having that lip at the bottom. I don't remember it having a bunch of chrome like this though. I don't have a photo of it here at home so I will have to wait until Monday to see it again unless I want to drive down there tomorrow and don't like to do that on my day's off, I am there enough you know what I mean.

But I can't find a box like that on the net!

Crash you can have the floor but I sure hope one of you can solve this riddle, what in the heck is this box?

Brian
