Great find!
« on: May 03, 2012, 01:00:52 PM »
I found a guy near me who did not realize what he had. His grandmother had a 30 Plymouth and it had a trunk on the back. She always thought it would be stolen so she took it off when NEW and placed it in her barn. He inherited her items and is selling me the essentially brand new original trunk. $250 and I am glad to pay it!

You must be doing something right to get such a "gift" from the Barn Find fairies.  Congrats

This trunk was in the barn between 70 and 80 years! The back is absolutely straight, while the top is curved. It is made of metal, wood and leather.

Thanks, Glenn.  It is literally like new and in need of dusting and that is about it. The back is sort of straight, yet has an odd curve to fit the body of the car. Now if I can find some sort of luggage rack!!

You have got to one lucky guy.

Luggage or trunk racks do come up on eBay once in a while, but you may have to wait a while.

Happy Motoring,

There is a luggage rack on Ebay right now.  It looks in good condition but I am uncertain what car it fits.  Check it out; item #370610888759 or search 1929 plymouth.  That's is a very nice trunk.  mc
