B. M. Buckley's 1950 Chrysler
1950 Chrysler New Yorker restyled by B. M. Buckley of Klamath Falls, Oregon. Up front B. M. fitted the car with headlight rings from a 1956 GMC pickup truck. The front fenders had to be extended to make this possible. The rear fenders were also extended. They got an additional 10 inches of metal to house 1956 Plymouth taillights. The exhaust was routed through the taillights where the back-up lights were originally located. Between the fins B. M. installed a continental spare. The original inline six engine was swapped for a 1953 DeSoto OHV V8. Once the bodywork was complete the car was painted in Gold and White enamel by Caldwell Paint Shop of Klamath Falls. The two tone paint job was separated by Buick Riviera side trim strips.
