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 ,

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.

You have a sweet ride! Looks awesome! Thank you for your help. I haven't really figured out how to search for the right thing on here yet.

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

Bye Bye Dakota

Do you know what the 8 3/4 came out of?

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

I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

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
