Dear Dave, My name is Jerry Beck, me, my son Randy and his grandfather
at Carlisle on Sunday and we talked to you and showed you the pictures of 
our 57/58 Belvedere/Fury. You said to check the frame at the back tire. if

it was a "C" shape it is a 58 if not then its a 57. We checked when we got

home and the frame is a C. This car really has a identity problem. We 
checked the back bumper and its a 57, but we have 58 as a spare. I told 
Randy that we have to inventory all the parts and see what we have that we

will use and sell the rest, (i.e. the 57 needs to be rechromed
still usable.
I looked at some of your pictures from Carlisle and We are sorry that we 
could't get there on Saturday. There's always next year. Thank you for
info and we will be picking your brain as we start the task of rebuilding

the 58 FURY. Hope to see you again soon

                          Jerry L. Beck
