Working to get a car I drove 31 years ago going again... my dad got the 56 Plymouth Belvedere in the late 80's, restored it... then he moved onto his 57 Plaza and the 56 was parked in the early 90's. Dad's gone and I've taken on the 56 Belvedere re-restoration. My sister & brother in law have the 57 Plaza.

Car sat in a garage (thankfully) for a long time... 1st things on my list were to make sure the engine wasn't seized, it spins freely. Clean all the rust out of the radiator, replace hoses and fluids, and convert to disc brakes...

It'll be fun to drive a car that hasn't run in a long time...

Also, glad I found this site & forums - always great to have a resources when working on cars!

Welcome and good luck with your re-restore! I've got a '56 Plymouth Belvedere myself.

Good luck on the project. I have been working on my '61 since 2014 and there are times I have thought about calling it quits on the car . I am sure some folks here have gotten in to 1 of those moods. I am planning to convert to front disc brakes on the car . I do not trust the 1s I have on it .
