    So I get a picture text from a machinist buddy of mine last weekend. He says “are these any good and what are they”. So I said nope they will only fit one car.... mine! Finally sealed the deal tonight. 82C3E135-CF30-48D6-8413-55AA3D8AC497.jpeg 56E5D57A-8DDA-47EA-A2A5-D09CBDEB9DE0.jpeg E4DF85F5-6D45-4C0E-9707-E0907D5ED23F.jpeg So I hope to have bolted down soon.

    Here are a couple pics of the old hinge. It’s been a while since she’s seen daylight. E7D1B646-F1BB-44C8-A0AD-89048481A569.jpeg DAE47141-428F-408B-8AAE-23302CB6DDB2.jpeg

    That hood isn't vented for nothing and I'm sure those carbs don't fit a flathead six!

    Start lookin' for a 392 Hemi'. 2X4 North & South were standard on the '57 300C and '58 300D. Old Hemi Shop in Mena, Arkansas can probably fix you up with the engine and any missing pieces, Jer

    VERY COOL. The fender V's shows she has a Poly V8. Theses will work fine. You have the hard to find stuff, The manifolds come up pretty often.
    Keep us up to date on it.
