I am new to the site, I hope it is not as rough as the last forum I was on. I have a 1957 Dodge Sweptside I am working on, it is not on the road yet. I am doing body work at the moment, looking forward to discussing many things with everyone.

57 Dodge D200

I too have a 57 Dodge, hoping to get it on the road soon. There are a few things I need to improve so I can rely on her a daily driver. Got one leaking brake wheel cylinder and a couple of parts on the steering that need to be replaced. I'm in Connecticut, wher are you located?...Dave

Got the steering working better, not perfect but better. Still got to get the brake drums off so I can get at the leaking wheel cylinder. But boy is it fun to cruise around in, gets lots of nods and thumbs up. Has anyone put an overdrive or different rear end in a 57, it is geared so low it's not really good on the interstate, screams at 50.
