Remember,the 350 SC was a PACKAGE regardless of trim level.
I would assume someone chased down the matching numbers----or someone is pulling the wool over yer eyes--or the shop's..
I had seen my share of fake tags..Anybody could have made a VIN tag to match the motor number.There are people out there that know how to play the gumbers name just to jack the price up on a car.
I am not discrediting the shop building your car,it is possible someone played them.
Just a hunch. 
Remember,Plymouth pumped out the cars as fast as Dr.Ballard could pump out dog food.

when did Mopar start putting the actual VIN # on the blocks? I thought it wasn't until the late sixties when the # appeared on the oil pan rail........maybe your engine is a "correct casting date block" instead.....

You're working yourself up in a tizzy over details that TO ME are unimportant.  Build the car of your dreams.

BTW, if the VIN and the enine #'s match, how the hell can they say the motor is not original to the car?
UNLESS they can say VIN xxx had engine # yyy, or vise-versa...

The only other Mopar that had the 350 B wedge was the '58 DeSoto
FireSweep - my car. All other '58 DeS had a 361, and no other division
had a 350 in any form. In the 'Sweeps case, it was a low tune motor
with 2 bbl carb and single exhaust, as it was the low line model, which
is fine by me, I'm not a leadfoot anyhow. Alot of '58 Plymmies have
been faked in numerous ways, thanks to "that" movie... I also would not
be at all surprised if the MN folks had been mislead. In any event,
dont' let it bother you, it'll be a super cool car regardless, and
don't worry about investment value - unless you intend to sell soon!
Me, my car will be stock, but I'm painitng it a non-Mopar color just
because I like it!



I'm with Leaburn - if it were mine I'd update the brakes, mechanicals... and I wouldn't paint it RED!!

Why didn't the guy wait til May or June and show us FINISHED pix of the restored car.  Then you'll be talking 50k, but  he'll probably tack on the price of the resto to the 20k.  Nobody's gonna bid 50k for that pile o' junk.  99% rust free? that means it's at least  1% pure rust.....

20 grand to start...


I turned in his first auction to Ebay and they shut him down...he was selling the car at a starting bid of a couple of grand and said "buyer has to have it restored though me or no sale"....that was against Ebay rules
