imaginary Potential of ’57-’58 Plymouths

I know, that engines like 440 Magnum or 426 Hemi possible to install on ’57-‘58 Plymouths . The examples exist. And whether is possible to install on that cars something else more powerful?

engine swaps

The easiest way to get some of that info is to do a motor mount comparison. Check the motor mount numbers at your local auto parts place. If by chance, the mounts for a 440 or 426 hemi match the ones on your current engine, then its a sure bet that the swap is mostly a bolt in job.
The only problem arrising would be the transmission bellhousing bolt pattern. The only data I have on transmission enterchange for MOPAR is for 66 and up.

Man, I love the old winged Plymouths! I say go with an 871 blower on a 500+ inch Hemi! Full Pro Street with tubs and monster Mickey's! But build it low real LOW! Paint it red and call it Christine's Wicked step-sister!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure what info that you want, but anything from a nice 360 magnum crate motor all the way up to the fire breathing Hemi that I described would serve as MOTORvation for your Plymouth! A mild 450hp 440 would make it a real nice driver but it would still fry the tires as long as you held the go pedal down!! Mate that to a nice 727 auto and a healthy 8 3/4' rearend for years of driving enjoyment!!!!

top speed depends on gearing, but you should near 140-150 miles per hour fairly easy.

just checking to see if you know what engines came stock in those crates. could it have been the 392? are they that hard to find these days? if so the obvious choice is really not a choice at all is it: 426 hemi crate engine

Strangely enough, I might have big block mounts for that chassis.
The 58 Fury came with a 350 cubic inch big block, same block mounting as a 383/440.
392 Hemis were available in Chryslers/Imperials, not the Plymouth. Wouldn't be too hard of a swap though IMO?

I would toss a stroker big block in a 57/58 Plymouth. Maybe the 505 crate engine, or...?

Have you ever seen Al Sheib's Fury? It's pretty crazy!

Standard Fury engine was Dual Fury V800, 318 ci. 350 ci Golden Commando was optional.

On this Fury installed 392 Hemi.

Al Sheib’s car has stroked 460 Hemi, seems. And stock TorqueFlite transmission w/ overdrive.

For inspiration you should see if you can find any of the info on "Suddenly". A 57 Plymouth that Hot Rod magazine picked up new from the factory and put a 392 Hemi into. Seems like the got it over 150 on the salt.
Hot Rod magazine had a special edition out for the winter of 2004 on the History of Hot Rodding and there is a couple blups on the car in there.
