I'm a big mopar fan myself (currently doing up a 1954 dodge coronet). I'd buy it if I didn't already have a full stable. Just don't drop a sbc in it please.... Find a nice 50's chrysler hemi, 354 or 392 for it. The chryslers have more stuff available, especially on EBAY. You may be able to do a mopar fron suspension, volare etc for much less than the ford one with adjustable tortion bar suspension.

A book to look at as far as doing mopar hotrods, check out..

How to Build Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge Hot Rods
by Rich Johnson, Tex Smith

Good luck with your decision. I'm biased so keep that in mind.
