Johan 1960 Plymouth restoration

Recommended Posts

I picked up this restoration candidate pretty cheap a few years ago. 

The original chrome pieces were missing, but inside the box was a complete chrome tree from a USA Oldies Suburban wagon.  The windshield was also MIA.  I substituted a windshield from a junk-box '60 DeSoto and had to modify the Suburban rear bumper to the correct non-wagon configuration.  

I figured the rear bumper mods would be the toughest part of this resto...no such luck.  The body had been coated/waxed with something (why??) that was tough to wash off before I could prime it properly.  The rear window glass that was included isn't the original kit piece, and doesn't fit 100%, but its better than the one I tried to fabricate with clear sheet plastic. 

Paint is Testors Mythical Maroon, the closest thing to Plum Red Poly that I had on hand.  Yes, the flake is heavy, but I can live with it.

Your rebuild looks great. These were not considered the best Plymouth design at the time, but this model looks very nice.

Fantastic build of one of the ugliest cars that Plymouth ever made!

I say that affectionately, because I love the '60 and '61 Furys!!
