Ever so slowly but surely, fingers crossed, hoping to complete for this summer , two more pieces to shape and a few holes to fill.
If at first you don't succeed, GET A BIGGER HAMMER!
Wish it was done, so I could go cruizin'.
Nothing against Flat Black, But there is alot of it out there. What do you think of flat red?
Maybe some faux patina?
Looking cool..can't wait to see some paint or flat blat or ..Some cheap trailer fenders from princess auto and a little massaging might make them work for the box..I like it ..
Any day with friends doin car stuff is a good day
Im starting to believe that I might actually finish this thing. Metal fab work is getting close to being done. Even my wife is impressed,
I think I can, I think I can...
Making Progress, SLOWLY but surely... Still having a blast figuring it all out.
Also, I found the perfect mascot for my little rig... Anyone laughs at my creation, BENDER say's "BITE MY SHINY METAL ASS!!!"
Think I'll hammer him into the tailgate skin.
Car shows? probably not but cruise nights, yes. Never meant for this thing to be a show car. Hell, I might dirve it every day, price of diesel is killing me. Besides, I want it like me, real rough around the edges... Funny thing is that none of my girls would learn to drive stick when this thing was just a PT, now thy're fighting over who gets to drive it when its done.
There are 106 miles to Chicago. We have a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
A journey in design and fabrication begins with a vision, a single pen stroke ... and in some cases the blow of a hammer.
That looks great,good job!!

I think it looks great..gonna be one of a kind..Great work..thanks for the update..
If you're stuck, I have a truck ;-)
A little more progress, just keep sticking on a piece at a time. Looking for a tailgate from an old 30's - 40's fargo tailgate with raised steel letters.
Took a much needed summer off, now its back to work in the shop, starting to look like a truck now.
Dads new toy, now I have a model for the PT
More updates, this is where the progress will slow down as I'm playing with a couple of ideas for the back half. Right now I think I'm gong to mimic a 37 dodge box, fenders have curve that will match the front fenders and the rest of the box is nice and simple. Seriously "LOUD" shoutout to Ron P. for the work on the cab. I couldn't be happier... Thanks Dude
Making some progress, I'm very pleased with results so far. Should have some pics of completed cab by friday... these are from last week.
Here's a box for yah..
Updates, found my metal worker, can you beleive that I have been driving by his place every day...
Here are a few more Plymouth Truck pics ..
Wow, I'm a little suprised at the number of replies... The kids wont drive a standard, so it's my new experimental toy. The PT with the viper motor in it is what started the whole idea, then I saw the black one and my mind was set. I tried to contact the poster of the pics in the PT forum that Beachcat posted but so far no reply. If anyone is ever in the Baden area, stop in for a pop, I am really interested in ideas on how to attack this thing as I am just feeling my way through it, (alot of trial and error).
I've started a picture library if anyone would like to see more. https://drive.google.com/?usp=chrome_app#folders/0B7RPsA49QYZyOTNSWjdhblZrQzg
I'm can't go to much farther as I am trying find someone local to help me with my panels. If anyone knows someone in the Kitchener area that would/could help me out with fabricating of the panels, shoot me a meassage. At the end of the day I really would like to say that I did it myself but that is maybe a little ambitous for my first project.
I like the idea of the late 40's fenders, I feel that the lines of the PT lend themselves to that era. That will wait till spring when I can hit the swap meets and wreckers.

A fellow in my area did the same to an AMC Pacer,but he forgot to put the drain holes back in place and it held water like an aquarium! Thats gonna look SHARP when completed
My wife has a Plymouth truck (as the ins call it) really a convertible but they can be made to look not to bad..My wife loves hers ,I hate working on that engine..it's the turbo runs great but it only has 43,000ks on it ..I dressed it a little for her

Viper V10 in this one.
The lines on it look a bit odd !! IMO it just looks like someone removed the top rear half and that's it. Using the small 1/4 window, and retaining the original rear wheel arch I think is what ruins it. The lines are not as nice as the black one.
