WANTED: Specific 1950s custom sedan

Post by cranestavig » Wed Jan 9th, 2008 11:58

Hello, I'm looking for a custom car. This car belonged to my father in the late 1950's in Everett, Washington. He sold it to someone in E. Washington in approx. 1960.

It was a 1949 Plymouth sedan with extensive custom work including:

- 1955 Chev grill and nerf bars with Lucite tips

- hood had 98 louvres

- lowered

- custom black lacquer with pinstriping

- Dodge Ram V8 and dual exhaust

- door handles leaded in, replaced with electric openers

- turquoise, black and silver Naugahyde interior!

I'd love to know anything about this old lead sled - dead or alive.

I'm in Seattle. I'm trying to track this down as a surprise for the old man. If you contact me I can send you photos. Thanks!

I'm interested to find out if it turns up. Seems like a really cool car that people would remember seeing.

cranestavig - Any news yet? Do you have some more pics?

Good going in your Plymouth! :driving:
