Originally, I had wanted to clone George Cerny's 2dr Plymouth wagon for many reasons... Well, it took nearly six years to find a suitable body & during that time, Cerny's original wagon was "rediscovered" & returned to the Cerny family. Now that there's no need to clone it, I'm going to build it however I find suiting, although, I don't think it'll turn out much different.
Here is Cerny's when it first appeared in Rod & Custom, Jan of 1955. Still had the venerable six in it...
Here it is late 1956 with different paint & a Cad motor that ran 100+mph on Sunday afternoons after his ol lady brought the kids back from church in it, according to George.
George Cerny. One of the few true hot rodders... RIP
