    Either I've gotten smaller or they got bigger. Its been parked since 1990 and as the Brits say" gobs of pat-in-ah" for us yanks thats dirt and rust. its a 55 Windsor 2 door hardtop with, I assume a 301 poly, some of you oldtimers will remember the spray on landau top craze, looks like spray on truck bed liner but on the roof. I still marvel at the power steering pump driven off the back of the generator.

    You got a Chrysler, it seats about 20
    So come on and bring your jukebox money...
    Seriously, would love to see more pics, especially of the engine with those cool polyspherical-shaped heads. That car's a rolling museum.

    Yeah, I'm there. Hate it sometimes. I do that to my wife as a joke now and then, and it's been a while. Her "can't get it out of my head" song is the D'vinyls, "I Touch Myself". I always liked that song, her not so much, but I'm off to youtube to play it for her this morning. :cool:

    The car's bitchin. I wanna see that roof line.

    In 1955 you parked it beside a 1950 Plymouth and it looked enormous. In 1959 you parked it beside a 59 Cadillac and it looked small.

    Today you park it beside anything and it looks enormous again.

    thinking of changing your exhaust pipes maybe one like this. the power steering pump driven off the back of the generator, well that can't work .
