Hello,
My name is Tony. I've been a fan of the show for years. I have been a car junky most of my life. I had a few cool muscle cars when I was in school and shortly after but life started and I've had to be more of a spectator. But now all the kids are gone and it is time for me to jump back in and get dirty. I don't plan to spend my later years sitting on the porch in a rocking chair, I am going to get back in the garage and on the road again. My wife and I just acquired a 37 Plymouth sedan to start working. It is a bit more than I planned for my first project but the car begged us to take it home. She is a bit rough but the body is straight and solid and almost rust free. We probably wont go wild with this one but whatever direction we go it will be fun. I would welcome any ideas with where to take this project. 20161018_190232.jpg

If it were me, I would just do a clean resto mod type of thing.  Update the main systems.  Start, stop, go in style...

How much is only dependent upon your skills, time and money.

And just in case no one is aware you can (and will) sometimes trade time FOR money and vice versa

Tony,

Welcome to the forum  You are gonna like the folks here.  Pull up a chair, set a spell,  you will find all sort of nice people here.

again, welcome

Thanks for the welcome!
I am going to get her home today and start assessing everything.

The resto mod is where I was thinking about going. Keeping the look and feel original but updating the major systems to make it safe and easier to handle. The good thing is the wife is as excited as I am about the project, at least until she sees some of the bills that will be coming.LOL

That looks like a great starting point. My project motto is in the garage for the build and out on the road for the drive. Modern running gear with brand new 12 volt wiring and A/C would have you driving and polishing instead of wrenching. Best of luck on your journey

Thought I would give a quick update. I got the old flat head running and the transmission and rear end are in good order. So my first order is getting it on the road and start enjoying it. I figure that will give me ideas and motivation. I now have a good 12v wiring system. New brake system and added turn signals. All I need is to add glass and gauges and we are off. I thought I would have fun driving while I collect what I need for the next part of the build.

If you will give Painless a call I bet they can point you in the right direction. I have talked to them about my project and they were very helpful.
