This is an oddball. The seller says it might be the only one in existence, implying that this car left the factory like this. Is this possible or are we just looking at a wagon that someone dropped a hemi into? Is that a factory roof rack? Also, the front has a lower grille that makes the car look like a 58, but the rear has the tail lights are like those from a 57. Can anyone figure out what year this is?

Didn't come from the factory that way, but it looks like it has been in there a long time! Pretty cool wagon. It looks like maybe the front clip was replaced.

I believe this car is all-'57 except for the headlights, grille, and lower valence, which are '58. It is missing the outer valence pieces.

The fenders have the '57 Vs and Custom Suburban (aka "Savoy station wagon") fender ornaments. Tail lights are '57.

Rear bumper is from a 9-passenger (with steps) but there is no cutout for the spare tire in the right quarter as I'd expect for a 9p.

The roof rack with the little bullet lights (reflectors?) looks like the '59 Chrysler unit. That's the only FL wagon I can recall with those on the roof rack, and even then I'm not sure they were built on the assembly line that way. On this Plymouth, it looks mounted too far forward.

The Hemi was not born there. But it is REALLY cool to see it there, and with A/C and a manual trans too!

Overall, it's a very interesting wagon and would be a fun one to build. And at only $15, I think it's worth the price

I had a friend years ago that put a 57 Imperial engine and trans. (auto) in his 57 Ply. convertible. The car was 11 years old at the time and it was a pretty easy swap, as you can see from this one.
