Default Torchie needs a meeting followed by a 7-11 to hold up..

Well I went and did it.
I've been eyeballing this one from a distance for 10 years now.
Since the grass is still down and I'm a bit stir crazy I gave it a better look today.
1949 Plymouth Suburban. First year of production.
Waiting to hear on a price.
I'm weak.Keep me in your thoughts......

Looks like all flat glass, Torchie. Chop, chop?

Ya know, Torchie, no painter could recreate the patina that nature has done on that car. It would be great just clear coated to protect it. As the patina is in exactly the right places.

Love that body style, hope you score it.

Patina for sure,Don. It looks to have been repainted once using a broom.
I may head back there tomorrow to see if I can get up on the ridge where it is sitting for a closer look.

Yes it's all flat, Crank.
There have been a few of these chopped,(probably more then a few. According to the internet) the problem I have with most of them is that they chop them too much. Makes them look like a rolling pill box to me.
If I were to chop it, IF, I said. 3 inches at the A pillar. Most likely the same at the rear because they are boxy. Where I would do it differently would be to angle the B pillar (or all the pillars) to give it more of a "Nomad" type look as well as a bit more lean to the rear pillar/ upper hatch area.
Then of courseI'd probably want to give it a section too. Oh mama...stop me.
So if your bored Crank. break out the photo shop.....

LOL.
Who knows kenny. My vision of it changed 3 times just on the 15 minute drive home.
I know one thing. Parts for the 49-50 Plymouth are more prevalent then they are for the same era Dodge.
