History & Story

I had built then drove a 1946 Plymouth coupe for 19 years. I always dreamed of a ’40s convertible as they are not common and would be fun to drive. I came across an add in the Fast Times magazine for a 47 Plymouth convertible for sale. The Plymouth convertibles are very rare and the price in the add reflected that. I wasn’t about to pay $6000 for a rusty (turned out to be the owner’s parts car) project piece. Well my wife knew about my dream car and proceeded to call the guy and get his details. She “forced” me to go to Red Deer and buy the My wife and I proceeded to disassemble the car and we had the body and chassis blasted. I grafted the original center section of the frame (due to it’s design and strength) into a 1980 Malibu frame for ease of air suspension. I put the car on hod as life became too busy with other people’s car projects. Finally in 2015, I made the decision to build the car non stop until I was done. I bought a car rotisserie and began the very extensive job of fabricating and welding in and entire new floor. 3 years of evenings and weekends, the car was on the road. I spent way more money then I had ever spent on previous builds for my wife or myself but I have the car I always wanted.
