Re: [FWDLK] 58 Dodge 2DRHT on Ebay, not mine



I have one of those - a 58 Spring Special 2dr Ht Coronet with the Spring Special side chrome, but mine does not have the fin "caps" or the rear license surround.  Has the correct interior, however.  It is in slightly better condition than the one on eBay, but is far down the list of Mopars for me to get-to.  My 59 and two 57s are closer in line, and a few 60-70 Mopars are there too (wife calls me a "red-neck" for all the cars in the driveway).  Never have all the time or the money!

This car is much more than just a carrier of Spring Special trim

This car is actually a 'real' dedicated factory Spring Special model, as
it is painted in
one of the three Spring Special colors, "Poppy Red"--or is it "Paris
Rose"?--
and it has the unique Spring Special interior colors, too.

Not many full-on Spring Specials have survived. Many 58's were built having
only a portion of all the S.S.-trim being installed in them, and this
guy has the
whole 9-yards of S.-S. finishing on it.

If nothing else, it's P/T plate and VIN tag could be liberated and used
on a donor
car, to restore this car('s appearance).

It's definitely worth saving.
