I owned a '57 DeSoto with a 341" 4bbl Hemi in it. I used to drag race with it at the old Half Moon Bay and Fremont dragstrips. I actually got it down into the mid-l5's ET which was quite good considering it was a convertible that weighed in at almost 4300lbs after lightening it for the races. I sold it back in 1966 so can't help you much with tech questions .
I remember reading an article about these on here when the site was in its old format. Cant seem to find it now.
IIRC, "Fast Eddie" posted that story. If you pm him, he can link you to it. He might just decide to re-post his article as a lot of stuff got lost in the transfer to the new format/owners.I remember reading an article about these on here when the site was in its old format.

I would love to build a '57 Desoto restomod with a 6.2 Hellcat motor or a 6.4 / 392
