Plymouth Special Deluxe
Lens: D FA 28-105 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Freeport, TX 
Posted By: Sailor, 08-24-2021, 06:49 AM

Here are a couple of shots of what turns out to be - best as I can tell - a hotrod example of a '40s era Plymouth Special Deluxe. I'm not particularly interested in hotrods, but I can appreciate the work and artistry that can go into them.

I like the paint job. Love the reflection of the sky in that 2nd shot. I think I'd get a kick out of cruising around in something like that.

Very nice photos, Jer. I especially like the rear-end shot

Like you, I have little interest in hot-rods, but I can appreciate the work and love invested in creating them. That seems to be a fine example of its kind.

Now, if it was an unmolested, numbers-matching classic barn find or restoration, I'd be salivating profusely

At a small country village about 100 miles from our house, sits a late '40's Plymouth, 4 door sedan, parked on the front yard of a house.

Body looks ok, although I've never got up close and checked it out.

The owner has a large paper sign, taped to the inside of the windshield, that says in large, black print...$ 98,000. I think it's his way of saying, don't knock on my door to ask if it's for sale.

As a kid I pumped gas in the early sixties and loved a car that had an easy to find gas cap .

Those Plymouths were all over the place when I was a kid.
Now, if you ever see one, it has flames painted all over it--something that "decent people" (where I lived) just never did back then!
And looking under the hood, what I can see of the engine doesn't look stock either.
Very pretty job that guy did.
And you didn't do too badly either, catching those clouds reflected so sharply.
Angky.

Hey, Dave - thanks much. I think you'd look cool behind the wheel of this machine!

Hey, Mike - I appreciate the kind words. You'd look terrific driving one of these in its original form.

Jer,

Jer, if you want I can negotiate with the guy who owns this old Plymouth and see if I can whittle the price down from $ 98,000 to somewhere more reasonable like $ 75,000.00.

I believe he he's looking at 98 Grand in American dollars, not Canadian money .

He knows what he's got !

That is a pretty cool looking car. I also prefer original restorations versus hotrods, but appreciate the work that goes into them. My uncle and cousins in western North Dakota built hot rods for years and took them to shows all over the country. I always liked visiting their place and seeing what they were working on.

You're way outta my league, Les - so you should buy it for yourself. If I had your money, I'd just throw mine away!

Yeah, Todd, it looks like it was created carefully. Your uncle and cousins sound like creative folks.
