Customs It’s alive!!! A 1959 Regent tale....Coming in the future.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 57 Fargo, Sep 10, 2020.

  1. Sitting here making lunch for my toddler, looking through pictures and this car has made previous brief appearances on the H.A.M.B. in a few different threads and a background picture or two taken in my shop. As I was drooling over gotgas’s forward look mopar this morning I thought that this car should be my next project.

    This is when I brought it home, I bought it out of Edmonton from Dean of Dean’s greasy flips if you follow cold war motors on you tube, if you don’t, check it out.

    Even made a Christmas card one year.

    The car is solid except the rockers and headlight brows but since forward look cars came new with rust there I call it a success!

    Yes it’s a four door sedan base model car but all the parts appear to be there other than engine and trans, I happen to have a good running 361 auto sitting in my shop.

    For the six people that have seen my other threads this will be the same level of cheapness and halfassedness that you are used to seeing here!

    Feel free to comment, ideas, laughing at me, shaking heads at my stupidity, etc! I won’t be doing anything until the Fargo is together next summer so until then shower me with inspiration.
