Hi All

Anybody live close to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, United States as there is a set of wheels for the 29Ply on ebay that I thought of purchasing but I need to find some where to store until I can arrange freight to Australia - if anyone else is bidding on them let me know and i will not bid against you.

Cheers

General Discussion / Finally got Her Home

Hi All

Finally got the Ply 29U home from Central Victoria on a stinking hot Sunday.  The last pic is of my 8 year old son with his grandad's grave in the background- as I grew up in central and my grandfather (farmer and boilermaker) and father (Farmer and Fitter/Turner) gave me the love of fixing things and cars - It was my sons idea to go and show them the latest project - he said "they really loved it dad" - hope you blokes donít think this is morbid but I thought it was a lovely gesture on his behalf!!!!

Hope all is well

Wayne


PS Sorry Tony i didnít get the chance to drop through as it was bloody hot and the young bloke was about buggered - my apologises once again
PSS the young bloke has a love of cars as well to the Australians can you guess the classic car on his shirt

Hi All

Found this girl 29U Ply tourer on ebay she is located in Bendigo Victoria about 2.5 hours from where I live -  she had been in storage for 40 years and he just rolled it out and wanted to sell it - the good thing is she has come from a dry climate - dont have any numbers yet will have them on pickup - also I know the medallion on dash is missing (bummer!) - The bloke I bought it of said he thinks it came from Adeliade but lost a lot of information back in the Ash Wednesday fires (1983).

Anyway another 29U project

General Discussion / Need to Move Plymouth
« on: September 15, 2011, 10:17:03 PM »
Hi all

Need to move 29u Plymouth Roadster from Brisbane Queensland to Geelong Victoria - what is the best way she will roll but not drivable  - container - car trailer - flat bed??

Priced one way car trailer cost around a grand to do it - plus fuel and 4 days on the road - might be cheaper options

any suggestions would be appreciated

Check it out as it is interesting to see what bodies, and how may were made during the different periods - On top of article you can change the years of production by clicking the 'Select Period'

Anybody else have information on body building in Australia or the US?

General Discussion / 1929U Plymouth
« on: July 31, 2011, 12:53:10 AM »
Hi all - have just put a deposit on a 29 Ply hope to pick it up the end of the week everything being equal - I pretty sure she was a roadster that had been converted to a Ute (pickup) - got it out of Queensland Australia - then will get it home to Geelong in Victoria and start assessing where to start - First question I need to answer do I take it back to a roadster or rebuild as it is? It is a rather extensive project - I can only make out some of the VIN number medallion that is located to the left side of the dash (as she is a right hand drive) - The code I have so far is GP-?20-C - the motor number is U5287. I hope this make sense

I know I will be asking a lot of questions in the future - so thanks in advance.

Cheers


Wayne
