Larry and Joyce Catt's 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible

I bought it about 15 years ago at the Portland Swap Meet. Some updates had been made...including a rebuilt 230 cu. in. 1952 Dodge engine.

I have made several changes over the years for handling and "looks." Most stainless was replaced, and chrome wheels and radial tires made it more comfortable to drive at highway speeds. The addition of an overdrive with [CPPC member] Les Connor's help is a major improvement too!

For returning to my High School hot rod roots, I added an Edmunds water heated dual intake and an Edmunds high compression head. The exhaust manifold was split and dual Smithy's make the appropriate "tunes."

In convertibles, the dash is body color...mine was a very poor red, a prior body color. I stripped and primed it, and had [CPPC member] Lauren Matley do a (non stock) walnut-color burl woodgrain.

Its not perfect, but a fun car that does draw attention
