Very interesting. 59 front clip, but 58 rear. Motor and tranny swapped out with shifter relocated to floor instead of buttons. Seats are not original either but don't look terrible, they do need recovering though. I'd get rid of that steering wheel, looks really out of place on this. Has dual rear antennas but not sure if those are aftermarket or original.

Looks like homemade inner fenders, radiator support and cowl parts. It may have been in a front end accident.

Chrysler Canada did do a 59 Plodge but the 59 Dodge front clip was put on a 59 Plymouth body, not a 58. I would suspect that the 58 Plymouth in question and a serious front end hit and the 59 Dodge front clip was the quick and dirty solution.

Obviously this car has had a front clip swap. They didn't build '58/59s and all the changes to the inner fenders and firewall components make it clear this is a homemade custom. Find a proper '58 Plymouth to donate a front clip, and you have yourself probably the world's cheapest '58 Plymouth coupe plus a pretty nice '59 Dodge front clip to sell.

Really love it frome the outside but do not understand the inner fenders as they would be a straight bolt-on too, so I fear someone clipped it
