I came very close to buying a '57 4-door sedan about 20 years ago but the trunk was gone!  That's when I learned about the bane of the late '50s Mopars - rust!  The good news is more is available to day for your car.  Have fun and good luck!

Great car! One of the best Forward Looks ever!

There's literally no decent repro sheet metal available for these, avoid the garbage being sold on eBay, it's thin gauge crap cut out and hand rolled with a few channels... ask me how I know, been there done that... fabricate your own.



You think you're a finoholic? Had 7 Forward Looks, and here's my last (before my current one) ...look
familiar? FireSweep Sportsman hardtop, now in Sweden....note my name here... I just happen to have a NOS (new,
never used) '58 DeSoto shop manual if you need one...
