Hereīs some facts why we are thinking to customize our -61: we bought it feb -94 and it was a driveable project. During over 6 years we totally restored it to be a factory original. Then in may 2000, when we just had it finished it burned, and only the front of the car is ok. now. So we were thinking what to do: Put it on the junkyard? No... Do it again to original? Too expencive ... Maybe custom? Letīs think about it... We sold the original engine & trans and some small parts (moldings etc.) and the car is now in garage. I know that in Sweden some guys made -57 deSoto from ht to cvt and nobody crusified them, I have seen the car and if I didnīt know ... Our car is going to be a cvt with hardtop, no ragtop. And I can guarantee that the world is not going to loose some nice and easy project. ( All the glasses are broken, there is no interior anymore, the body is badly damaged...)So if you donīt want to help, then donīt, but donīt do it for wrong reasons...
