It depends on how you define fins. The 64 Chryslers have something fin-like compared to the 63s.

In that case, 61 is the last year of the fins, 62s were plucked chicken (as Exner used to call those)

i wouldn't call it a shadow of their former glory but more of a change to their next stage of glory. the glory was pretty much gone by 74(depends on the car.)

Sorry to interrupt ... but there's yet no progress to be shown, as I haven't been at the garage all week.

Tomorrow I'll might do some work again on the '64, perhaps welding the emercengy brake-bracket. But I need to get a new 'long'-brakecable first before I can check if the system works properly or not.
I've got one of those long ones still on an axle, but it's a '64 tapered-drum axle, so I'm not sure if I'm able to get that bugger off without the proper tools.

Drums can be a pain if they sit for too long, keeo a BFH near by use when needed. Good luck hope progress continues smoothly.

Nah, I looked at the axle today... but was humbled by the large nut and the huge drum that stared me right back in the eye, saying 'I won't budge today buddy'... so I backed off without even trying and cheaped out and 'repaired' the old brake-cable with a small iron tube...

At least it seems to be working, going by the feel of the pedal and hearing the springs expand inside the drums.
