    Hello everyone. I’m new to this site and hope to get my 1957 Plymouth restored to better condition. It’s actually not that bad but it’s been sitting for a little while and during the winter months the rats got to the motor and has chewed up all the wiring.
    I’m hoping I might find some help on here. This is my first resto, and kind of need some guidance on what to purchase. I know rock auto is a great place to purchase stuff. I can post pictures of inside the hood later.
    Has anyone else replaced all hoses and wiring on a 57 Plymouth savoy? And if so what all would I need? Thx for any and all help!

            Wow! That's awesome! Thanks for the update! Looks to be in super condition. You said you have wiring issues caused by vermon. Have you considered an aftermarket harness? Speedway Motors sells a "hot rod" harness that has the appropriate circuits to power up your Plymouth.

            Easy way to keep chewing critters out of a car in storage like that. Couple boxes of moth balls. Open one box and leave in interior, trunk, and under the hood. Mice and rats hate that camphor smell. They wont go near it. Cool 57 BTW. Get a universal streetrod harness and wire it up.

            Common black pepper sprinkled on the floor of the garage will also work, but sweep it up before starting the car.
