Thank You Very Much Dennis!

This is the car my Dad was driving the day I was born. I don't even know what kind of car it is.
Dad says it's a Plymouth that they had a small block Chevy in. He says it was a 4x4, meaning it had a 4 inch bore and a 4 inch stroke.

I don't know much more about it other than a guy named "Lefty Grennen" had something to do with the 4x4 part of it........if anyone can verify the year and make, I would appreciate it.

Thank You again Dennis!....................Perry Jr.
