Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thanks for all the comments gang.
At this point the vision is still forming.
I may do nothing more then make it look make a car again and send it down the road or .....
The boat is still the number one priority as I would like to have the bottom on and it flipped back over by the end of June.
I know that we joke about it, but things like this really are an addiction. Old things are like comfort food to me.
I bought my first old car when I was 14 from my paper route (Remember those) money.
My single mom allowed it as a way to keep a "Hard to handle" son home and in the garage instead of out running the streets.
This one was another one on it's way to the scraper and we can't let that happen. So as Dolly Parton would say. "Here I go again."

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I bet when you dialed that number you got a message that sounded something along these lines

I have mustered the troops and we will be picking up the 49 Dodge on Wednesday evening. Here is a pic of the 49 Plymouth that will donate some parts to the new project. I got my bumpers for the last custom from this car.
Most likely I will get the windshield trim(inside and out) as well as the hood and dash. Possibly the grill too, depending on it's condition. Along with some other interior parts.

Go for it, Torchie.
I am picking up a '51 Plymouth this summer as a parts car. Would '49's and 51's be the same? There might be some more parts for you in this 51.
I'll be watching you.

I have a 51 Cranbrook Sport Coupe. I tried to sell some spare front sheetmetal to a buy with a 49. He t old me that the width of the car changed between 50 and 51, so things like front fenders, hood, etc., will not interchange. Not so sure about rear fenders or doors. Seems like they would make the jump alright.

My understanding is that they did change from 50 to 51 as Skip mentions.
My concern is what will fit between a 49 Dodge and a 49 Plymouth. To me they look the same except for some trim.
As I posted earlier this car is really just a shell as it has no interior at all. So I will need to located all the interior garnish mouldings. The dash is missing but I will either go with the Plymouth from the donor car shown or perhaps a different brand all together. I have a 49 Ford dash that I cut apart before I sold the last custom. I may use that if I saved all the pieces.
I still need to get to my local yard to check out what he has. Hopefully sometime next week as I am trying to get some outside work done now that it appears to be spring around here.
