Billy the wheels are off from a 78 Dodge Diplomat or Magnum, With several hours of Polishing , I have 8 of them , I have my Dot tires I used for Racikng and My regular street rear tires on a pair. The basket or center piece is held on by a little bracket and bolted onto the wheel and I fabricated a piece to go in the center and the spinners have a stud and bolt onto the adapter. I will take pictures and show yu how it is done. I have used those wheels for abut 25 years or so. I had them on a 55 Dodge lancer 2drhdtp Custom I sold about close to 20 years ago.:) When I sold it I told the guy I had to keep the wheeels :)

You're welcome!

I must ask, is it personal choice to have wings on the rear bumper but not the front?
Either way, she's a beast!:cool:

Pete I have always liked a smooth front Bumper, I bought a 58 Fury Rust bucke aboujt 15 years ago, IK took the Chrome widow inside moldings, 150 MPH Speedo and Bumper wings front and back, I had the back ones which I think makes it look a lot bettter but never cared for the front. I sold them several years ago along with the rest of the car. I bought the car local must have been 15 years ago . The Fury that is for 350.00:)

Yessir!
The car looks great either way. :cool:

My first '58 was a 6 cyl. originally, and I loved the look without the "V" in the grille. So much so that I removed the V on my second '58, even though it was a 318 car.

1st time seeing those pics for me too Bobby, I didnt know Redsled was white? My car was originally white with metallic coral interior trim? what color was your interior? Was going through an old dupont color chart yesterday at paint store and it said Plymouths those years didnt have 2 tone color combo codes ,in other words one had to know what was on there to get the correct codes for the original colors.
In my case the paint on the roof was completley gone so ill never know if its was solid white or if top was another color.
