1958 Plymouth junker
Posted by junkman01 on Thursday, March 15, 2018 11:58 AM

I found out it was missing a door panel for the drivers side so it went to the junk, well that's what I made it look like. Lots of rust, rot, dirt & more missing parts. Let me know what you think, good or bad I want to hear it all.

Sure does look like an abondended "I'll get it runnung and fixed up soon" project . Well done , fits here better than something with 20 year plus newer than produced Tires , custom wheels , an Engine available decades after it "fell of the Assembly Line" and a Laundry List of modifications .  Who knows , this could have been forgotten in some Storage Site since new and pillaged for some parts while being Vandalized . Much more believable than Donks on a '55 Chevy with a 454 . Does anyone else remember the Freight Car Load of '56 Plymouth found in 1986 ? Never made it to the designated destinations in the day . Insurance paid off the loss . Thanx ..

Truly outstanding work and detail. The overall look is dead-on. I have totally trashed the same kit for donor parts as I felt the proportions and shape are a little off. It was the perfect candidate for your vision which you carried out masterfully. Thumbs UpThumbs Up

That is some really nice work; looks like a typical Mopar.  But, if you start hearing radio music, stomp it and throw it into the incinerator.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

The entire MY of all Car Makers of 1957 were proned to Rust Out . MoPar is singled out as the worst of the lot . Ths is so untrue . The Market place exploded with high sales demands prompting the Factories to hire : Butchers , Bakers and Candelstick Makers to build Cars on the Aseembly Lines and increase Shifts and working days / hours . Just like today the prevailing thought is "anyone can operate any machine as equally as well as the next guy in any party of the process ." Relaity , who suffers with the quality laspes of the products ? MoPar received nothing but praise for the Entire 1957 Models from the Automotive Press . Did the naysayers create this illusion ? I was there to see with my own eyes . Even the Imports rusted away in this time as bad as Detroit Offerings for you favoring this type of car . Payments then : 24 Months Mximum . Payments today : 72 Months Maximum . A Car was worn out and needed extreme amounts of repairs at 30 K and beyond . 100 k was next to impossible for many reasons . The Warrenty was 12/12 . Rust Belt Cars suffered a quicker Rust Out than the Car Payments lasted . The paint was single stage with oxydation being a fact of life . This excellent build typlifies any 1957 Automobile , not just MoPar .. Thanx
