NICE JOB ON THE 4 DOOR! lets see more of it.
That '56 Plymouth with the same California plate is the same car....different paint job. Notice the lake pipes and other features that are the same.
Now that's cool. Have you started a build thread on it?
Yea 52 dodge 2 door and chopped
Sorry 2 door and chopped 52 dodge
My '57 with a 392 Hemi. Donavan 417 roller bump stick with two 650 dbl.'s.
Just finished this 1958 Imperial for my dad.
My 1956 Chrysler 300B. 354 c.i. Hemi with 2 4bls.
I'll be starting on the '57 as soon as I finish restoring a friends 1936 Chrysler Imperial Airflow.
63 dart, painted by me. 67 Camaro bumpers, 32 ford headlight outer rings, 56 ford inner rings. Shaved handles, emblems shortened trim.
That 63 dart wagon is superb. I dig everything about it
posted from under my rock.
Damn that dart is a good looking car. Nice job on that

Nice dart! Love them A bodies.
Wow, that is a surprisingly good looking Dart wagon. Using Camaro bumpers was genius. Great job!
dart wagon is awesome.
can you explain more on the push button conversion?
I want to upgrade my 56 Dodge with a three speed 727 and 383; but I want to retain push button drive. with a 57 to 60 Dodge pickup push button controls it would look like it always belonged.( the 56 dodge models were all 2 speed)
The 300 is beautiful!!
On that '63 Dart wagon ... Just for shits and giggles could somebody photoshop that and make it a 2 door and do a gentlemens chop of maybe about 2" .. Leave everything else as is ................
You can use any 57-60 cast iron T/F to replace the 2 sp. You can use the 2 speed shifter mech. with the three sp transmission. My 300B (pictured above) came with a three speed.
Thanks, I don't think I'll be doing any customizing to it. Adding the vintage air was a mistake that I'll be fixing later this year.
I owned this car when I was sixteen as well..That was 30 years ago.
So I have posted this ongoing project elsewhere on the HAMB, sorry for repeating myself but I think this may be a suitable spot for the old turd. I am trying to convince myself that I can budget build a neat old custom out of a pile of crap I have lying around, please humor me as I glue stuff together and clean up piles,lol..
Started out as a fairly solid 1956 Custom Royal four door sedan and we all know four door sedans are NOT cool, what to do because scrapping solid runners surely ain't cool either, hmmm. Lets try to build something on the pennies I have left over each week after raising a family with twin teenage daughters... Here is what I have done to this point.
So this is where I am at today, I have a four door speedster underway,lol. Could not find a suitable RH fender after looking almost a year ( Thank you Canada for the extreme use of road salt!) so I used what was left of a fender on a parts car and a set of leftover 53 Buick Fenders from a project out of the past . I am picking up a set of 59 Caddy bullets to sink deep in to the original locations of the proper lights in the fins next...
Never thought I'd say this about a '61 but that is torally KOOOL!
I think I've posted my dodge in here before but here's a rear view.
I need to lower it more and a repaint.

how did you shorten the steering arms ?? did u make new ? or cut and reweld the originals ?? thanks in advance
the short story is...i welded up the area i wanted the new hole to be, then machined a flat spot and drilled and tapered a hole perpendicular to the flat spot. then i used a grinder and flapper wheels to shape and smooth it after i cut the end/old hole off. your mileage my vary, consult your favorite welder/metallurgist. i did!
by the way i read through this thread again,there are damn nice cars here!
The pink car has a new home. Going to Austrailia.
sorry u had to let her go,,,,hope ur doing ok,,,congrat on the sale,,,
damn Aussies , that'll probably drive it on the wrong side of the road!
I have taken a lot of @#$$# over the years for driving a pink car--and I could of sold many times to someone that wanted to make a shiney black hot rod out of it--but I like this car--I built this car for a woman 25 years ago and a 55 yr old woman is flying in sunday from down under and going to take a RT 66 trip to Ca. and put it on a boat--she is buying it for what it is--for me it's great, the car continues on with a cool story--I'm going to try and talk her into doing us a trip story here on the HAMB--she is I-phone capable
