Re: What " custom " Frankenstein axle do I need ??

They make wheels in a lot of different configurations - you can even get them made to order. This is about where the mounting flange is positioned relative to the overall width of the wheel rims. You need to do more research to understand what is possible and how to measure "Backspace". For example,...

Re: What " custom " Frankenstein axle do I need ??

What about putting on wheels with the "appropriate" back spacing so that they "Stick out"??

Welcome Chris!

Blimey! A member in the MMA (Karl) is doing the same thing to the same model of car, and also similar Social media!

You two should hook up.

Are you going to race it at all when done?

Re: 64 Plymouth Belvedere post car

That is exactly what we are going to do in the '64 Polara, which has the same original set up as your car.

The "K" frame will be swapped out and a Trans cross member fabricated and use the Spool mount made of Urathane.

Re: 64 Plymouth Belvedere post car

It is non Stock, but you can solve a lot of other problems by using a later "K" frame so weight distribution is better and exhausts fit easier and are more available...this moves the engine back but means that more fabrication is needed on the Trans Cross member.....

Re: 64 Plymouth Belvedere post car

Where are you mounting the engine, Pete?

In the '64 position or the later '68 onwards position??

Re: Door and window rubbers

Mark is correct, I doubt that any Retailer will hold these in stock in the Uk.

Many will order in to suit, such as "Customville" but there will be quite a long lead time and shipping and duties costs.
