This 1936 Plymouth Coupe is going to be one COOL Hot Rod!

The boys in the shop have been chipping away at the ’36 Coupe project – mostly doing the stuff no one will ever see. Once we install the carpet and door panels we built, no one will see the steel sheet metal floor and firewall, and reworked body mounts or any electric system.

The 1936 Plymouth Coupe Dashboard

This 1936 Plymouth Coupe originally came to us with just a round cluster in the center of the dash. Luckily the car came with extra parts – one which was a deluxe factory dash – so we opted for that. We built the gauge clusters panels to fit and match the original style. The

Bringing back the oldies with metal fabrication

At 79 years old this 5-window coupe needed some “reconstructive surgery” when we first brought it to the shop. Like any good plastic surgeon we followed the natural flow of the curves — to avoid that un-natural forced look. This big booty is from our next project a 1936 Plymouth
