Tilted

Why is the right front wheel resting on a makeshift ramp, tilting the engine toward the driver's side? Easier fluid drainage perhaps?

Been There

Done That.

Definitely a '37.

With the headlamp units mounted from the side, that eliminates this being a '36. The '38 had a shorter grille that didn't go that low. I owned a '37 Plymouth P-4 sedan from 1980 through 1996. Great fun car with the tilt-open windshield for ventilation, rear suicide doors, and running boards.

Can't do that anymore

Well, you can still put on overalls and open the hood. Then, you stare at the engine for a while and close the hood.

Mayflower

1936 Plymouth

I stand corrected, A 37, for sure
