  1. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    Thanks Young Ed - I'll give it a shot.
  2. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    Thanks for the welcome. Even though the car is 95% complete, I am missing the rear licence plate surround. Anyone got one or know where I can find one?
  3. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    I managed to get extra of the green fabric and used the original vinyl inserts of the door cards.
  4. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    Front seat was a mess but the rear seat was like new so the challenge was to find matching fabric. Not sure what the Plymouth wagons had, but this stuff is strange - like a cross between fabric and vinyl. Was tough to find.

    Looking good pflaming. What seats are those? Us wagon guys must have the same eye as we’ve taken the same pics.
  6. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    New interior panels made. Super easy - 3mm board, with colour matched paint. Looks very different in the photos, but I found an area that was like new and took a sample from there. If anyone has a wagon and is missing these, I can get measurements etc (or even make a set)...

    Brakes and chassis were cleaned and overhauled.
  8. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    That was this one. I saw it and bought it almost on impulse as it was too good to pass up. Seller was a really nice guy.
  9. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    Some before and after to get us up to date: Headliner - was in a bit of a state, but all there. I fitted it myself and really enjoyed doing it. Apart from reupholstering the front seat, I have done everything myself so far. I have both visors but was in the process of covering the other one when the pic was taken.

    All good now though.

    Floorpans were toast
  12. Hello from the UK - ‘54 Dodge Suburban

    Thanks for the welcome. It’s a flathead, three on the tree. I purchased it sight unseen from California but I think it’s originally a Wyoming car as I found the name of a carb tube up shop in Casper engraved in the air cleaner. I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it actually turned out to be. The drivers side front and rear pans were shot and there were some holes in the sills and lower rear quarters, but nothing too drastic.
