Definately not a Prowler. Prowlers are unibody and that has a couple of frame horns stickin out. Nice kit of some kind though, gives a guy some ideas to make a better looking Prowler.

I don't know, it still looks like a customized Prowler to me. Look at the mirrors on the doors. It even has the same suicide doors. I believe the green part is original while the lower section is customized. This was at my schools Auto Show this spring. If not, it's a good rip off of design. I like it. I've thought of playing with the design myself.

Looks NOTHING like a Prowler.
It could be several different manufactured kits.
Here is a American StreetRod:

Wild Rod Factory:
There are several others out there also like Gibbons, Downs, Coast to Coast, Rats Glass, Monotti....
Definately NOT a prowler though.
Later,
WEIMER

The grille is nothing alike..Prowlers do NOT have suicide doors. And they NEVER made a hard top Prowler.The only thing similar is they both have 4 wheels and 2 seats.
Do a google search for 1937 Ford and do one for Plymouth Prowler...they look nothing alike.
Later,
WEIMER

Look at he doors. They are IDENTICAL., and so is the roof. Here is your hardtop Prowler with suicide doors dude. No, they didn't make them. Man never walked on the moon either.

Not a chance. The front suspension is entirely different, the roof lines although similar are totally different, the Prowler is a unibody and the other is obviously a body on frame, and the differences go on and on and on.....

I believe it's a Downs 37 Ford 3 window-front end has same lines and features as thier 37 p/u body.
I can't get a picture from thier site, but downsmfg.com will get you there.

Its a 37 Ford fiberglass body that has been customized. It is on a custom built chassis. You see lots of rods like this in the Streetrod magazines. Nope it is definately not a Prowler.

What? And ruin a good arguement! The prowler, as pictured previously, does not have suicide doors are not inentical/suicide. Those door handles are at the back of the door, not the front, like the first photo. Both cars look sharp though!
