1953 Plymouth Other Additional Info:

Ground up retro-mode by two old guys; STILL HAVING FUN! This 1953 Plymouth Savoy 2 door station wagon was found in an a field in Arizona where it had baked in the hot sun for years until Mother Nature had the Patina just right. The only rust damage was in some floor panels and the rocker panels. Rescued from the clutches of an inhospitable desert. Torn completely apart and rebuild with the creature comforts of today but maintaining the vintage look of yesterday. This beauty will sit on you foot if your not careful. Starts and runs the way a sweet cruiser should. A real head turner on any main street.
