    1954 coronet 2 door "Club Coupe"

    Hi I'm new to the site and thought I'd post my project I got 3 weeks ago. Last time it was registered was in 71! Heres where I found her... The P.O. said it was there for more than 20 years...

    Been cleaning it out for 2 weeks now (when I have time)... This is how it was when I got home...

    To get you updated, I cleaned MOST of the inside (only found a 1962 penny). Found a little rot behind the drivers seat. Very minor!!! This is the only rot I think the car has. : )

    Really like the stance! Doug (Trannyman) built a 55 Plymouth with a big block iirc.

    I had a lot of trouble getting my rear brake drums off and damaged the the drums. I did not find any drums for it so I felt it was more practical/cost effective to get a rear end from junk yard. I picked up a 1987 Chrysler Fifth Ave rear end for $240 with drive shaft.



    Cut off perches and did a dry fit


    Wow maybe too low???


    Sitting on the ground... Actually just what I was looking for!


    Now I need to crawl under and tach weld my perches. Then I'll remove the rear end and complete welds and replace seals, brakes and a little clean up.

    Looking GREAT! send me what kinda valve covers you'd REALLY like to have, an maybe i'll send ya a pair. Edelbrock gets too much advertising as it is.
