Did some trading and got me a 49 Special D
51 K, Seats almost like new, body and paint real good, runs pretty good (tune up needed for sure), radio, fuel guage and generator all not working but...........Having fun!
Put 100 + miles on her in a couple weeks with the grandkids while working on the minor things when time permits.
Never going to be a show car but looking forward to visiting every remaining Root Beer Stand for 50 miles with the kids!

My fuel gauge didn't work either. I had to fix the float in the gas tank. There's a nice easy access to it in the trunk, watch out for the retainer ring it can be a pain. I had to pull my tank because the ring was stuck. I think I paid $50 to get my generator rebuilt and the same place did the voltage regulator and starter.

If you do take it to a car show I guarantee that folks will be checking it out. Let's see some pics!

Good going in your Plymouth! :driving:

Think it has been repainted or touched up many years ago. Found some overspray on one side window but 100% sure it is the original color.
Been in almost every spot on the car and and everthing in the same color.

What color is the trunk painted? Are the fender-wells (inside the trunk) painted the same color as the body is or are they painted steel-grey? The steel-grey color is the original color.

It's a weird color, like a steel gray with a little green in it.

That's the stock color I'm pretty sure. There were very very few (if any) that ever came from the factory with the trunk painted body color.
