Hello all! I just purchased my first ever forward look car, a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere 2 dr hardtop. It is pretty rusted. Turns out that it needs a new frame, because the current one is like swiss cheese. Wondering if anyone has a 57 or 58 plymouth frame that is solid that I could buy? Also, how does one go about replacing the frame on a 57 plymouth? Is the body welded to the frame or bolted? I am also looking for a driveshaft for my 57 plymouth (just a stock one).
Thanks!!
-Brent

Body will bolt onto frame. I don't have one, but I'm sure someone has parted a car that would have a good frame. Not sure where you are, but there are junk yards that still have these cars. Your first contact on this forum should be "Big M", he has a lot of these cars yet in his junk yard.

I have a stock drive shaft from a 1960 Plymouth that I'd sell for $50 plus shipping. It was pulled from a running, driving car with a 318 Poly V8 and PowerFlite trans. If you check your length, I could confirm whether mine is the same.

Welcome to the forum.

I have nice solid frames, but also on the west coast, so shipping may be cost prohibitive.

Thanks for the reply. Im glad to hear that the body just bolts to the frame, will make swaping them a lot easier. I live in Denver Colorado.
Ill be sure to contact big M. My 57 has the 301 with the push button transmossion, you think the 60' driveshaft would work. One I get off work ill go measure. Thanks again!

I have the correct frame in good condition. Where in Colorado? I will be delivering an old Dodge truck to the Phoenix area, and perhaps could meet up somewhere along the way.

According to my interchange manual, the drive shaft from my 1960 Plymouth with 318 and PowerFlite will interchange with a 1957 Plymouth with a V8 and PowerFlite but NOT a TorqueFlite. Do you know which trans you have? The PowerFlite with have 4 push buttons (R N D L) while the TorqueFlite will have 5 push buttons (R N D 2 1).
