These are the types of entries that seems to get a pass from the judges, so even at $900 acquisition cost, you will still have to put a ton more work into it (Brakes, Tires, and safety gear). Imagine the sight of this glorious Plymouth at the next New England race… Price slashed so hurry! See the listing here, or go here if the ad disappears.

  • This is actually a '48.

    Given that Judge Phil (aka Murilee Martin) has just purchased a '41 Plymouth similar to this for his own project car hell, I'm sure you'd get a relaxed budget from LeMons HQ. Heck, he may buy parts off you!

  • You show up with a flat head motor in anything an you can pretty much spend all you want on the car. I mean as long as its not some crazy blown flat head Ford V8

    Back in Lemons south fall somebody raced this 45 Benz with MGB(I think) running gear. I think that Plymouth would be a great entry to follow.

    And if you need more parts during the race there is a spare Plymouth 35 minutes away, in the little town of Antrim. Guy has been asking for "over $1000" for months now.
