Does anyone know the history on the '58 Dodge conv in the John Staluppi collection being offered at the Leake Auction in AZ ?

Has the wrong passenger exhaust manifold for a dual-quad engine. Isn't this the one that the top sits too high, like they used a hardtop donor floorpan? I seem to recall this was at Barrett last year? Either way, I'll be out at Scottsdale next week and I'll check these cars out.

If I recall, I think this was the one at BJ that went through a bunch of hoops. If that was the case, then the AZ police did it. This car was made from a hardtop, hence the top sitting up so high

Anybody seen a photo of the chassis, i.e. did they swap in a literal "X"-member or just leave the hardtop ladder frame?

We had a thread about *A* 58 Super D-500 convertible

This car: https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1958-DODGE-CUST...

This thread: http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=70254&...

This was the start of the resto:



And there was this suggestion about how they did the body:

Notice how the convertible top folded sits up way too high. Probably used non convertible rear wheel wells. May just used an entire hardtop donor shell.

^ that's what I was recalling. Thanks for finding it. In his defense, Mike Swedal, who restored this car, has done fantastic work on a couple of my dad's cars awhile back. Amazing body skills!
