    Yea, those clips are pretty unique. I have a full set off this car and I will check my originals, should be a complete set. Your welcome to them when I locate them.

    More progress to report. Most of the panel mateing will take place at the factory seams. A small amount of butt welding will be necessary on each quarter panel.

    The frame rails are boxed on the inside, drilled and welded front and rear of the seam and then triple welded on the seam.

    Welding will start today.

    My dad drilled small holes at the bottom of my '61 so the water can escape

    Will, nice to see the progress, you must feel great about finding the donor.

    I am guessing even as skilled as your guys are they must be happy to be able to patching the work in and not have to fabricate it.

    The bodywork is moving along at warp (no pun intended) speed.

I am finding more on my hard top its getting to were I am getting fed up with my hard top . There are times I wish never bought the car . When I was looking for another 1 I should of put in the ad I prefer the car came from Arizona , New Mexico a dry state with no humidity.

    I used to watch Car 54 just to see their 61 cop car. I have no idea why I was so fascinated by it.

    Perhaps because the Plymouth had a face just as odd as Toody and Muldoon...?

    I've found just 2 examples locally since 2002, one a conv on the plains and the other a 2dr that was pulled from a barn ready to fall on the car. The second car sold quickly, and the conv is most likely still there.
