How this car came to be. I had a 1936 Plymouth dr sedan with no engine or trans, no interior, no roof insert,..... Work was progressing very slowly. I was renting a house with a dirt floor garage and no electricity. We bought a house with a 1 car garage. Shortly after moving my then Brother-in-Law was getting out of the Air Force. He had a 1948 Plymouth that was a driver and wanted to sell it. It had the stock engine with a 2 carb intake and a floor shift conversion. I sold the '36 and bought the '48. It had this home grown maroon brush paint job. The trans case was cracked. While waiting for that to be fixed, a friend told me about a 1962 Dodge 318 Polysphere w/Pushbutton T-Flite that if I wanted it, come and get it! I got the engine/trans in, rewired it, covered the seats with sheets, put in a 8 3/4 rear end from a Roadrunner.

Interior shot when I got it:

Traded some work to get it in primer. My first show with the Maumee Valley Street Rods at the Southwyck Mall in Toledo, OH:


I sold it for more downpayment on a bigger house. Bought the house, got divorced, blah, blah, blah.

I sold it to the owner of a street rod parts store friend of mine. He sold it and I lost it after the next owner. A few years later it turned up 1 block away from my parents house! Then the owner moved away and I lost it again. I never found it after that.
