    im finally getting close to moving this car to Oklahoma mid summer. All the rust is repaired and the fiberglass bits are gone. The Dana 60 is in progress as is a 500" engine being built by Steve B at Moshers. Trans is done. I just had to share as two of my cars are already in Oklahoma and two are being stored in California. I got nothing at home to work on!
    I absolutely cannot wait to get started assembling this car. Thanks for letting me vent. :lol:

          Alright! I didn't know what those looked like when you were talking about the car the other day. MORE pictures!
          What was the reference about fiberglass? Was that some cheap "repair" someone did?

              Oh, okay.
              The Polara I just chopped up had some crappy fiberglass "repair" near the rear window channel.

                This car just had the crappy hood and some cowl and rear window rust repaired. Straight and dry now.

                        My 63 Max wedge wagon is in pieces now. Working on the aluminum fenders & hood. Some day hope to post some pictures. I take pics with my phone and now it won't let me email them to myself to download. Some day. It's nice having a 63 as not as many Plymouths as Dodges as I see it. Stored since 93, brought out last year. Fun project.

                          I got a cheesy glass hood for my 66 Belvedere too but it worked. Had to do some work to it to make sure it didn't peel apart at 90 mph lol

                            And what's with the aftermarket support on these 63's??
                            Legendary doesn't make door panels or seat covers?
                            No repop steering wheels?
                            M&H wiring harnesses start at '64 on year ones site??
                            I have a feeling the interior on this car will be quite expensive....

                              That’s going to be one sweet ride when you’re done. I love that year and style.

                                  You might want to check with Joe Suchy or Kramer Automotive for the early "B" stuff. They carry allot of items.

                                  Thanks Darter. The more I ask around, I think I’m right. Those parts I listed are all custom and quite expensive.....

                                  Hey, Co....Hosehead. Did you try Gary Ball? He might have expanded his line from 65 Super Stock interiors. He had a display at Indy Cyl Swap Meet but I walked right by it.
