Looks like it was built on or about Sept 30, 1959 (very early in my estimation). Paint is all Jet Black (AA-1).



As for the rest, I offer the following examples:

Make sure you change the oil filter now it is running. A lot of crap has likely been lodged in there.

I dumped the old oil and filter before I did any cranking on the 361 . I'll do it again soon.

If it helps, I have rear brakes (backing plates, springs and shoes) from my 1960 Plymouth. If you need anything, let me know.

The cover is to provide access and adjustment to the steering column.

I don't know about pre-1955 Dodges but as far as I know 55 to 59 Dodges had those inspection/access panels

On this FWL forum, PM's stay in your outbox until the recipient opens them. It's not the outbox, it's the fact that the receiver hasn't opened your PM.

wtf price is now double almost... used to be alot cheaper and they have black friday with 33% off everything soon. I guess it would take an hour to make though? but i know they aren't that high of quality.

74$ usd on their site. but this is just a piece of sheetmetal with a bend and a some beads. I know many people make their own.
