1951 Dodge Wayfarer Roadster


Recommended Posts

I'm still working on mine.  That link didn't take me to the car unfortunately.  

By the base clear paint it was obviously restored or refurbished at some point.  Mine had more work done than I liked and much not really completed I'm still working on.  Even with a good car,  the amount of final details and finishing one could spend hundreds of hours on after it's painted and upholstered.  

What was the asking on this one?

Considering what finished cars sell for yes and the amount of work needed to get this one there.  Now if it's rust free,  it's probably not ridiculous just like other cars where the bottom is higher than one would expect and the top is not far away.  

There are really crusty rusty ones for 4-5G.   Strange market to find with very small increments in price for very large increments in condition.

Hopefully not bad karma but instead of starting a new thread I want to continue the discussion with a nice one.  I don't really like the advertisement because I feel like there is a lot of talking for a little info.  But the pictures are not horrible.  A few of the underneath would help the sales process.

Interesting. Late '40's and early '50's mopars have a reputation of being very pedestrian, but in convertible form, this Dodge looks downright classy. I really like it. And it makes me miss my '50 Plymouth.
