And maybe some photos of that DeSoto too. :)

 Here you go Tod not a lot of room around the sides and none at the back, the owner said it was a 47, I replied same age as me then, he thought it had had an easier life than me.

The vent door windows I thought was standard for '41, only '39-'40 had none.
Question: did it come with a metal or wood insert in the floor?
In your search for an engine if you find a '40 with PT 105 XXXXXXX serial number I am looking block/head or even complete.

Hi Rich, still waiting to collect it, Christmas got in the way. No vent side windows on this one as far as I can tell, looks to be single glass.

The floor see the photos below, toe board is deff. steel but can't tell about the floor.

I know the importer has an engine in the UK coupled to a 4 speed box, it came over in the same container but that's all I do know. Hopping to collect Wed/Thurs next wk so will know more then.

Thanks for your interest.
Tom

Very nice condition, from NM should be great to clean up or for paint.
The vent door windows I thought was standard for '41, only '39-'40 had none.
The "script" in the picture should be 7 1/2 inch wide for the hood of the '41...I sold a used pair this past fall off a Detroit made '41...that was the only year for on the hood, '40 had on the nose (curved).

 Look what the guys at  Andy Bernbaum Auto Parts found for me NOS. I have asked them to check stock as I know members are looking for 40/41 hood emblems, will report back when I hear.

I bought my Plymouth emblems from either Andy Bernbaum or Mitchells.

Not to change the subject, but did you see the letter I got from Bernbaums this past week?  I posted it on facebook

Ed J suggested Roberts but they are out of stock. Will follow up your leads and yes I did read the letter, a very nice gesture which perked you up at a bad time.

Thanks for your interest Tom

The glass you should be able to use as a template and take it to any good auto body glass company to have them cut the windshield for you.   It was along time ago now, but I think I bought my Plymouth emblems from either Andy Bernbaum or Mitchells.

 Thank Tod and Bob for your kind comments, this truck in a Los Angeles build, spent most of it's life in New Mexico, serial # is 300 short of the last of the line. Both door skins need repair to the lower section which I will make up a 6" panel and weld it in, not sure if I will find the front trim and once I've established what the Plymouth script either side of the hood should be I will get a local shop to laser cut the profile for me. Nothing under the hood, there is a unit coming but depends on cost whether I go for that, I hit the importer at the right time, too much stock coming in with none going out plus I have a couple of spare wheels that he was in need of.

Looks pretty solid and a very good find. Let us know how it goes with this one. And maybe some photos of that DeSoto too. :)

Just about to collect this one, only 140 mile round trip and I'd been looking in the States.

Notice the DeSoto in the last photo will get some shots of it provided it's still there .
