Thanks all!

The exterior and interior are in pretty good shape, but the mechanicals have been neglected for a while. We are currently working on general maintenance, Oil change, new belts, and the like. The car was also previously converted to 12 volt, so, we will have plenty of chasing do to with the electrical. Thanks for posting comments they are much appreciated!

Nice 55. Congrats.

You know this I am sure, but if not, there are 55 Dodge Shop Manuals new (repro) and used and CDs of the same on eBay. Watch the pricing for these varies considerably between vendors.

Thanks for the suggestion on the shop manual! I do have one, I just wish there was a manual to outline the 12V conversion that was used.

Thanks for the reply!!!

These are 56 Dodge wiring diagrams, the first two are from the shop manual and shows the wire gauge is (likely thinner than the 55 wires, e.g. 18 instead of 16, etc - so stay with the 16, etc.)
