  1. That's my old Frat house, Delta Tau Delta at Syracuse University.
  2. The day I bought it in 1965. Back when I had hair and a 32 inch waistline.
  3. Maybe Plymouth offered a Wayfarer in Canada, but not in the States.
  4. Plymouth did not make a Wayfarer, only Dodge which offered a Business Couppe, A two-door Sedan and the Sportabout. The early 49 Sportabouts had side curtains, but it didn't go over well with the public. Later 49s and all subsequent models through 1952 had roll up windows. The car I have for sale in a genuine 1950 Sportabout, not a clone. The spares are from a 1949 Sportabout which has the later roll-up windows. The cowl and doors are the same, the rear convertible section is slightly different but would adapt to any year convert. As I stated in the ad, it has a manual top, not a power top. My first car was a 1932 Dodge.
  5. I've listed my Wayfarer in the Buy/Sell section. I just located the first car I ever owned - a 1932 Dodge - and I'm buying it back. I need shop space for my new baby. if you're looking for a nice Mopar restoration project, this is the car for you.<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

  7. SOLD [TABLE=class: tborder, width: 100%, align: center] <tbody>[TR] [TD=class: alt1]I have a 1950 Wayfarer convertible, complete. I also have a front cowl, both doors, the rear convertible section, the frame and the top mechanism from a 49 Wayfarer Convertible. Plus a ton of extra parts. I'm only selling this because I actually located the first car I ever owner 45 years ago, and I need the workshop space. The convertible is a rare car known as the Sportabout. It's a single seat - no backseat - and is based on the business coupe. It's a solid project car. It's all there, with all the convertible parts. Fenders are good - and I have a set of four NOS fenders I found in an old dealership that still have the factor primer and inventory tags on them. The back floors and trunk are in really good shape - a little work would be necessary on both sides in the back corner of the trunk - but it's minor. The spare tire recess is not rusted out! The front floors were Swiss cheese and I have cut them out. The body floor supports are all there and in good shape. I have a complete floor from a Wayfarer sedan or you can buy replacement floorboards. It needs new outer rockers which are available. This car had huge inner support rockers that are actually just a long metal box made of sheet steel. They are in bad shape, but I have a complete, but rusty, sample from the parts car for a pattern. The passenger door is rust free. The driver’s door has a patch on the bottom that I would replace. I have two doors from a sedan with perfect bottoms that could be used to replace any bad metal - it's only on the driver's door though. Both bottom quarters - the narrow section behind the door and in front of the removable rear fenders need work, but the panel is almost flat and has no patterns or embossed parts. Some of the body mounts on the frame are a little rough, but I have an extra frame with good body mounts. All mechanicals are complete and I drove the car home and into the garage. The PO claimed the engine was rebuilt less than 3000 miles ago but I can't verify that. The seat was shot, but I found a nice original seat that you can recover. The top mechanism is all there and in good shape - the top is manual so no need to worry about leaking cylinders or rebuilding the motor. I have an extra front grill, bumpers, rear axle, convertible frame, two complete dash panels with all gauges, front suspension parts, two solid doors from a wayfarer sedan (the botton 9/10s of the door is the same as the convert), extra wheels, the bottom of the front cowl from the sedan with all floors and supports, extra transmission, gas tank and rear springs. Basically this is a nice restoration project with all the parts you'll need. If sheet metal work - mostly floors, rockers and quarter panels - bothers you, this is not the project for you, but it's mostly flat panels and much of the work will be hidden. I've done tons of research on the car and can provide info on your project. All the spare convertible parts are there if someone wanted to take a nice business coupe and turn it into a convertible. Many parts on this car are unique - the doors, the windows, the frame, the top - none of them fit the regular Dodge convert. I've spent years collecting all these spares. The convertible alone is $3200. The total package is $6000 - that includes every part I have. The NOS fenders alone are worth $1500. The car is a roller, but you're not going to drive it home, the tires are dry-rotted. If you want everything, be prepared to basically take two cars home. I can work with you if you just want some of the parts with the convert. The car is located near St. Louis, Mo. I can send more pictures if you need them. Thanks for your interest.
