    Hi all,
    I'm a Mopar guy from way back. A few years ago I bought my wife a 65 Plymouth Belvedere wagon. It's her summer beach car. Now I am doing some resto work on it. Glad to be here.

    Welcome to the SWF Timmayy. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for the beach wagon.

    So far I've done the electronic ignition conversion, complete front end rebuild, SS fuel lines, shocks, tune up and added front and rear sway bars. It was driving nice until the rear axle bearings went. I just had the leafs rebuilt and I have an 8 3/4 suregrip rear from a 68 roadrunner that I'm going to put in.

    Now for the hard part. Since I'm out of work because of the pandemic, I stripped the interior. What a can of worms. Time to start on my metal fabrication skills. A lot of old hacks and a lot of daylight coming through.

    Welcome to the site. Like your ‘65! Good luck with it. I’m sure brother Orthmann can give you some tips on tearing stuff out if the ole gal.

    Here's an update. I fabricated a new spare tire well. Since they don't make replacements I cut the one out of my 66 Charger parts car. I cut it in half and then used sheet metal to extend it. Brushed on chassis paint and sprayed truck bedliner. Now I'm repairing the fuel tank.

    After I repair the pinholes on the fuel tank I can put the rear suspension back together.
