I had a 57' Fairlane 500, back in the early 90's. Traded one of my English Bulldog pups for it.
It had a leaking torque converter. The only 2 piece torque converter I know of. Changed it out with a display model, I got from the local transmission shop, and put many a mile on that ride.
I passed my drivers test, when I was 16, in my dad's 51' Chrylser 4 door. What a monster of a vehicle. No power steering and fluid drive tranny.
I learned to drive in one of these. A 50' Plymouth 3 window coupe, or Business coupe.
