• I gotta get me a car with a storage drawer like that. I wonder if it has springs on the back side so that it pops out like a turkey timer when done. Would need to make a cash drawer sound. Ka-ching!

  • Went on a Volvo club drive this weekend to the Campo (SoCal) truck museum. First I'd ever seen or heard of a Powell and now this. Waiting for third shoe to drop . . .

  • These are cool. I heard somewhere that they quit making these when they could no longer find '41 Plymouths to build them from. The reason that they are so squared-off is that they did not have the ability to make complex curves out of the body panels, as they were not stamped, but rolled.

    • There are 4 molded parts on the Powells. The roof, windshield opening, the rear window molding. and on the 1955 and 1956 models the cap for the fishing rod holder. The super rare 1957 has torpedo tube fishing rod holder cap. The 1957 has a 1946 to 1948 frame and running gear.

  • Those aren't storage drawers, at least not from the factory. They're for holding fishing rods. Which I suppose is storage, but they're not little cubbies like those pictured. Somebody added the dividers.
