LOL. I've found a message from Sjak in my mailbox with a link to here. :)
Yes I've been very busy lately. With my job, but most of all with my cars. I was looking for some wings, but most of the time they were to expensive for me. A week ago Marcel showed me a topic on the Dutch Moparforum. http://www.mopar.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9488 (http://www.mopar.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9488)
Love at first sight! Wings and a beautifull front..... We mailed and phoned the owner of this beauty. We went looking at her and he came looking at my Cranbrook. (With the wings on a trailer with him). We came to an agrement and now I am the proud owner of a Dodge Royal from 1957. And the Crannie is gone.....
My wings need a lot of love and work but she will be worth it. The engine that was in it was broken, so the old owner gave me a 400 with her. Needs some work to fit it in the Dodge. But it will keep me of the street next years. ;)

Thank you. :)
I fell in love with her front end. She has a mean look.

Firedome, what's the difference  between a Royal and a Custom Royal?
And what do I have? The Dutch license paper says she is a Custom Royal.....

She has two bad spots on her back end, but the rest is good. I will post more photo's as soon as I have some time to sit behind the pc. :)

The difference is mostly interior trim and misc. features, additional sound  deadening. . . .  Stuff like that.  In those days they may have had a different exterior paint scheme or trim.  Kind of like the spring specials.
