Well said, and it's a damn nice car . You should be VERY proud to own it, as I know I sure would be. My point was, it is a damn nice car as it, just enjoy it.

Just doing some looking, finding those wheels doesn't look like a fun task.

Oh agreed! I've already started making a list and will begin getting the pieces mentioned. My point above was that I would have been ok if the car was far off. Since it's not terribly far off, I'll start collecting the items needed to slowly get these details right. Will everything get done, not sure, but I'll at least start gathering the parts.

Yah, the closer you get, the harder it is. The more you try, and the closer you get, the less you want to drive it, so I have decided to drive mine and let it be what it is. I hope to have it at the Marion show next spring.

I don't mind driving the rare stuff. I have multiple cars that less than 10 exist, all of them see road time. They all have insurance on them, which I hopefully never have to use. Some of these are AACA national cars. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to go drive in a tornado, but if it's not raining, we're in an old car. The only time we trailer something, is an event like Carlisle. I took 8 cars to that event, we trailed 5 cars up. Next year I'll bring around 10.

Just one more word of wisdom. There are several well documented faults with the car. Some will even be expensive to cure. But I see a car that can be enjoyed, comes equipped with a rarity that will still will bring pride to the owner. Who knows, it five years you might uncover the parts to make it perfect.
Just my opinion.

There's a difference between attending and participating in a show for fun, rather than enter into a judged event, which was what you recommended, I asssume the OP's vehicles were most likely "Invitational Display" participants

If you say so. I just read he wasn't a car show guy. Bringing 10 cars to Carlisle. Wow!

I don't enter judged events. Just not my thing. I absolutely will attend a dozen or more Mopar events and at least 8-10 general events a year. I have all the respect in the world for those that do the judged events.

On another note, might have found 4 wheels that would fit my build. Hope to gets something done soon.

This was my setup at Carlisle this year. I setup on the manufactures Midway and pull out Saturday night. Next year plan on having a big tent 30 x 100 and will display 8 convertibles and 2 other cars. Still working out details, meeting with Carlisle shows this weekend at Sema.





AACA charity event a few weeks ago. I left right as judging started haha

I read the Mecum description of the car, and I would just want to take a good look at the transmission stamp as it probably won't be matching numbers to your car. I'd also take a good look at the number stamped on the engine and make sure it looks legit. I know it doesn't probably matter to you as your enjoyment is driving the car - but still, a guy wants to know what he bought.

Enjoy the car - if you're happy with it that is all that matters. And leaving when the judging starts, priceless.......................

Me too! I wouldn't even notice the Hemi Challenger, and I'm an E-body fanatic.

Oh I wouldnt turn it down.
But if it came down to it versus either a 61 Chrysler 300 or maybe even a 58-59 300 conv. Its no contest for me. the 300 wins every time.

A buddy of mine has a 1958 300 conv ( major MAJOR project) he has been trying to sell me. I just cant wrap my head around that kind of project at this stage in my life . Had he offered it to me 20 years ago, I probably would have bought it.

If you are looking to improve the OEM appearance this is a good place to start if you have thick skin. There are others such as Performance Car Restoration in Canada, Frank Badalson, Mike Mansini, and lot of other choices that do OEM GOLD restorations. I like the car the way it is, Improve it over time with correct numbers and date coding and stamps and stuff like that but do use it like it was built for.

Good news on 1 of the parts. I have 4 dated coded wheels coming my way, 10 days before my build! Very excited. Next, start hunting the master cylinder.
