Really Nice Car

1938 Plymouth 4 Door Sedan©

This shot was taken at a car show in Billings, Montana several years ago. I don’t have any statistics to go by, so will just say, this was a great job of restoration. I don’t recall hardly any differences between 1937 and 1938 models. The only difference that really stood out to me was the shape of the headlight shells. The 38’s were not quite as bullet like looking!

First College Car

This was my first college car. It was a light tan color with red wheels and I found it very reliable transportation. I don’t remember how many miles I put on it nor do I remember ever changing the oil, I probably did, but I don’t remember doing it. It boasted a radio, heater and sealed beam headlights. I paid $450.00 for it in 1948 and sold it to my Grandad for $350.00 in 1949 to give him a good deal after he had totaled his 1935 Ford 4 door. I never even thought about having any kind of trouble with it as it was so reliable. It made the 135 mile trip between Stillwater, Oklahoma and Waynoka, Oklahoma many times in all kinds of weather. Form those of you who don’t know, Stillwater is the home of Oklahoma State University, formerly Oklahoma A&M College.
