I think this would be a fun daily driver.

Look like an engine swap to a later model B motor. Wonder what they did with the trans as the early cast iron flites don't bolt up. if they used a 62-65 trans they require separate cables for P and gear selection. i 'll bet that interior is a bit smelly as well. Would be a cool cruiser with some Updates beer

Or is it actually a 361?

Cool ole wagon but engine sure got rusty. Makes me wonder about floors/frame.


Facts are stubborn things.

Really like '59 Dodges, and it looks like most everything is there.
Got a chuckle over all the tools distributed around the car...
Like, "that's it - it's for sale!" ?

Seems to have been a blue & white car originally, nicer to me eye than the solid red.
Looks to me like something I'd wind up going through almost completely...

A 62 big block trans still uses the tailshaft mounted parking brake instead of a park mechanism and is a 1 year only deal.

Looks like a later engine or at least heads, because of the 6 bolt valve covers and remains of blue paint. But they reused the generator and exhaust manifolds.

Maybe they swapped the crank for the transmission though I kind of doubt it, or they used a '62-'65 transmission?
