In 1936 Plymouth made 309 Westchester Suburbans. I built this over 5 years, a friend sold me the body from a 36 P2 4 door sedan, he needed the chassis and drive train for a Plymouth convertible he restored. I used a 96 Dakota for the drive train and electrical system and most accessories. The body is white ash and birch plywood, the doors are steel. I removed the door skins and replaced the wood so it's solid sounding when closing the doors! I spent most of a winter on the doors. The quality of the woodwork is better looking and stronger than any Woody made in the 30 s !!, Inside I used a 46 Plymouth dash molding it to the 36 dash to keep the windshield crank-out mechanism intact. The Dakota gauge module fits very well in the 46 dash. I've kept all the electrical system intact, the door jam switches, dome light, turn signals, emergency flashers, dimmer switch, heater, horn etc. I put a 4 speaker radio/cd in the glove box. I use the Plymouth for every day driving, car shows etc. I've taken it to BACK TO THE 50s in St Paul the last 3 years, a thousand miles plus weekend, It'll cruise all day at 70+ MPH. The Dakota V6 and 5-speed transmission gets 20+ MPG. This 310th Westchester Suburban wood body is better than any of the original 309s built in 36! I used 36 Old's bumpers and guards plus other swap meet finds, it gets compliments were ever I go! The paint is my first spray job & it looks fine. I've been asked if it's the original paint, no clear coat or anything makes it look more original. The wheels are artillery from wheelsmith with new Plymouth sailing ship wheel covers. SO THANKS FOR LOOKING!
