Just more clutter for the scrap yard. As best I can tell this is a 34 Plymouth or Dodge. Any car buffs out there please feel free to correct me.



Junk pile.

You are right Frank about being a Plymouth. Here is a 1933 Plymouth 4 Door Sedan. They had the front louvers vertical on the side engine doors. The 1934 had a more rounded top at the back. The 1933 was more squared off.
You did a fantastic weathering job with yours and it makes a great scene.

'33 Plymouth with those 'much sought after' suicide doors. In 1:1, that car is worth some big bucks. (although not in that shape  )

Louis, thanks for the conformation. It was a Russian kit and what a pain in the butt to build. The body was in 5 parts and they were all butt edge to fit together. No aligning pins or anything.

Jim, love those suicide doors. When I was stationed in France in the mid-60’s a lot of guys bought “Gangster Car” Citroens with suicide doors. More on those suicide doors when we sit down for a couple of beers.

Thanks Mike, anything I can do to keep y'all motoring along.

Jerry, no it's Jim the junk man. The name of the place is Hopes Brother's Scrap Yard.

Frank, a couple of questions'... Where did you get those cinder blocks from, and what happened in France behind those suicide doors'''

Dave laser cut them from floral oasis foam cut to about 1/8" thick. You have to handle them with care - very fragile. Mum is the word on the doors.
