#9 Brian Baker’s 1950 Plymouth Business Coupe
Full Story – Beyond Business
Brian Baker’s 1950 Plymouth business coupe is precisely the type of car Goodguys had in mind when we established the Vintage Air Custom Rod of the Year award nearly three decades ago. It combines traditional customizing techniques and elements with modern street rod refinement and attitude in a cool, clean, and cohesive package.
There’s no doubt this coupe showcases distinctive and classy style, but what makes Brian’s Plymouth even cooler is its family history. His uncle Bob bought the coupe in the late-’60s and drove it around his Phoenix-area home for years. Brian’s parents bought the car in 1979 after it was involved in an accident and Brian helped perform the repairs to get it roadworthy again. The Plymouth was driven in stock form off and on through 1995, when it went into storage for roughly 20 years.
