I don't know if the front letters are the same for 1957 and 1958 (many parts are the same), but Gary Goers sells them in the U.S. for $95 US per set. His catalog is here: http://www.garygoers.com/cat10B.pdf

Take a look at Page 52.

is he still taking orders?

Only the "D"'s are different. A bent one for the hood, flat for the trunk lid.

a lot of items are sold out, and wont be reproduced again. Rear windows seals I think are such items...

Last I heard, he was still taking orders for items that he had in stock but no longer accepting orders for custom parts (such as sewing seat covers) due to his health. I did buy a rear window seal from him about two years ago for my 57 Dodge, so you may check with him to see if he still has one in stock. Sending a letter by snail mail is the best way to reach him, as he rarely checks e-mail.

As for the letters, I bought a gold set from him about 2 years ago as I needed the middle "D" for my car and he was out of the letter in chrome. So I had the middle "D" chromed and it is on my car. But I haven't used the other 4 letters and would be glad to sell them to you at my actual cost plus shipping if you can use them. Please send me a PM if interested.

Looking forward to seeing updates on your car as you start the restoration process!

Is this the one? It's for B/RB engines. Did the 350 and 361 share the same heads?

I think these are what you need

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mopar-Chrysler-Mopar-Big-BlockValve-Cover-G...

But cheaper like this

But search for Chrysler 350, that way you get early bb stuff

Sorry Felicity I'm confused.. Are you after gaskets with 4 or 6 bolt holes??

Have you ever used RockAuto? I looked up your car on their site and if the 4 holed gasket is what you want, they range between $8-$20 AUS. Postage is around $30'ish. I usually write down a list of parts I need then go for one swoop. Sometimes can get a 10% discount code. Same items sold here but triple the price!!

Flyshers in Melbourne have access to these gaskets Felicity; reasonable price, local postage.... The rope seal for the crank is not in the generic wedge kit and he sells those seperately for $30.

Yeah that's what I thought but then this post confused me a little. So basically you were saying you could only find the 6 bolt ones.. Wasn't sure if you meant your heads had corner bolt holes...



No worries.. Good luck with it all.
