1954 Plymouth convertible owned and restyled by Sven Blüme of Lidingö, Sweden. Sven lived in the block next to Mikael de Bourg Wetterlund, and in 2018 Mikael told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that Sven built the Plymouth in 1965. "If memory serves me right, he put a DeSoto Hemi in it and painted in Green Metalflake from the beginning." Other modifications included canted quad headlights a rolled front pan, and a tube grille. The door handles were also shaved, and the rear of the car ran four custom taillights and a bumperless design. "I remember when I first saw it in 1965," Mikael told Sondre. "He had just installed the engine and was sorting it out. The car was without doors, open lakes pipes and Sven sat on a crate, driving it around the block. You can imagine how impressed I was of the sound from the engine without mufflers!"[1]

The car was later exhibited at the Hot Rod Show at Ostermans Marmorhallar, but Mikael can't remember which year.[1]
