    Man...what I wouldn't do for that car....

    I would shave the rear doors and drop a Hemi in, but it is easier said then done right?!

    The Asses on those are amazing. always wanted a 57 300 with the same body/ fins.

    '57 I believe.........the taillight lenses are shorter on '58......same bezel, just different lens................

    should be a 354 cube polysphere engine, but will accept Hemi heads........sooo......has hemi potential!

    Yes you DO have a Hemi , except for the heads . The Saratoga of that year had a 354 CID Polysphere head engine , Get a set of Hemi heads and valve gear from 55 up and they will bolt on.

    Way it's sitting I'm assuming the Poly is still in it. If it is & is rebuildable he can convert to Hemi, buy a 392 & drop it in, or...where everyone expects a 392, build a 440 for it & drop the 354 into something earlier. The Polys are getting a following now that Hemis are popular.

    Good find there! '57-8 Chryslers are getting more desirable all the while, and four door HT's have a nice roof line.
