YAK Car Pic of the Day

This forlorn-looking Plymouth Club Coupe (circa 1946-early 49) has been sitting in the back of a used car lot in the City of Tonawanda for a while now. The styling was new for the post-war period beginning with the 1946 model, and cars produced up until March 1949 looked pretty much the same; the “later” 1949 models appeared after that (both styles were titled as 1949 models). Someone apparently replaced the front turn signals on this one with a pair of J.C. Whitney-ish lights, as no available photos or sales material show these cheap-looking round lenses. A little rust showing here and there on this red example, but from this angle it looks restorable.
