I'll have to look that movie up. Not familiar with it.

Funny you should ask...
I got the front clip on in the last couple of weekends, and I have driven it around the block (unregistered.)
I'm taking Friday off and plan to get it registered. SO I will have to get the video of my first official post-restoration drive up on LL this weekend

It still has a long way to go, however. Most of the trim is not on yet and no interior (just a bare front seat to sit on.) The paint on the front clip didn't turn out so good...got something in the line and got some fish-eyes. But I can repaint that later. I just want to get it together and get to driving it.

awesome!!!!! you don't see enough of that vintage in the road. Lots of muscle, older cars, but there are certain years just missing from the scene.


I need a project car BAD.

Realized this thread is sorely missing updates.
Still has no interior and still haven't polished and installed most of the SS trim, but it looks pretty good from a distance in these photos...

The reason is, quite frankly, that Mopar construction quality from these years was horrendous, and most of them rusted away into oblivion.
You see so many '57 Chevys because they made many more of them, they were always popular, and they were actually built well.

But a 57 Chevy looks downright dumpy next to my '57 Dodge (and they don't have hemi's either )
