hello to all.
i was currently thinking of importing a plymouth silver special 58 sedan, this is because i cant find anything else in the uk, probably not looking in the right places, can anybody help please, also is the silver special 58 a desirable car, a little research says its a rare car but i have my doubts.
any help would be gratefully recieved.

Hi Sid,

as far as I know the silver special was a limited edition trim on a bog standard model. Kind of like the so-called special editions you get on modern cars. To get these right, you'll be spending a few grand I expect. Trimming, shocks, suspension parts, and all those little things that need fixing.

There are a few over here already (I have a '57 Belevedere Sedan, which I've almost finished!), so you may be able to get one without buying a car you haven't seen. Maybe I'll sell mine... I quite fancy something different from time to time!

Where are you in the UK?

hello im located at south wales currently but for how long i m not sure.
what value would a 58 silver special hold in a nice condition ?
the one im looking at is all original and complete and not really too much money compared to trying to find a classic id want that costs more than i have to spend.
do you or others know of anything for sale project or otherwise ?

Hey Sid,, I know of about 8 1957/58 plymouths here in the UK, with 3 recently selling and needing lots of work,

Sorry dont know of any currently for sale here though, but will let you know if i hear of anything coming up , there are a few of them pictured on another forum i help admin,,

Thats why i listed the above ones in the USA, another guy was also looking for one recently, and he ended up buying a 59 Plymouth Fury Sedan in the USA and importing it over a couple months ago..

That UK Plaza is advertised as having a 318, but it doesn't look like one. No scalloped valve covers. I'm no MoPar engine expert, what is it?
