I have a 56 Plymouth for about 9 years now .. I put the FMJ mopar front clip in it.. very easy install, especially if you are running a small block,,I bought a whole Chrysler 5 th ave for 200 bucks ,so I took everything I could use..the steering colunm went in like it was made for the 56..My only problem I used an RB 440 ,now stroked to 493 cid..I like this install as it was easy and the car rides very nice... 2 round trips to FL from NJ, and with a gear change it runs low 11's at 120 MPH..( this year I'm looking for 10.90's..) has been shown on here many times)Nr John K your 56 is NICE !! here's mine again ...I hope this comes thru ,, new P/C today ,

Sorry to intrude on you post but am curious if you guys have any input on my 47 swap that I want to do. I want to put a R&P in it and not having any luck finding the right people to talk to who have done this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you.

Intruding doesn't bother me, but I would do a search back though some older threads your question might not get noticed on here. I saw two of those at car shows with conversions so I know it has been done. Cool looking cars.

Time to clean Dakota frame up a bit before chopping it off, it all looks in great shape so far.

Bye Bye Dakota

The rear end in my '56 is from a '65-'67 B-body (59 1/2" overall width), perches moved inboard to 41" centers.

Thanks for the pic and info John, I was going to mock up Dakota axle which I believe is a 9 1/4 but I haven't gotten that far yet. if not I will go with that 8 3/4.

Is there a reason you put lower shock mount over leaf spring?

I was told the rear was from a 1970 Coronet...I did have to relocate the spring perches..

I assumed the PO used the perches from the original rear end that had the shock mounting studs in them. shruggy

I found some body mount bushings through Andy Bernbaum Auto. It seems a perfect time time to freshen up while apart.

And with the same first name as me they must be pretty good beer
