I think you said it all, when you mentioned it's a 4 Dr.! [:0]

Do remember though, that the entire front clip, dash etc. do fit the Starlight Hardtop, Wagon and Presidents, if they are nice someone will want them! [^]

Posting pictures of the car always helps. Do so when/if you can.

Well it's a good thing this car was only about 30 miles from here....me and another fella went to look at this running '58....turned out to be a '56 and it hasn't run since back in the 90's [}:)] About the only thing any good on it was the windshield and the stainless grill is also good , motor has one valve cover off aand the engine is stuck [xx(]
I did take pics ...if I figure out how to get them from the camera to the puter I'll post them ( my kids camera ;))

Well that ain't no one nine five eight there.

Did all 56's have exhausts thru the bumper?

Yep. The Champions even had a dummy pipe for the driver's side. [:0]

I think in this case, "TLC" stands for "Throwaway Lotsa Cash"
