Great Mopar — I like this car but would really like to talk to the previous owner to get the details on the motor. Over all it is a great car and a ball to drive and join my Mopar buddies at cruises and car shows.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

When They Are Restored, They Bring The Looks — Got this car complete. I am waiting for retirement to finish this car. I have all the parts, just need the time. Car has a 318 with an automatic transmission. Car is White with red interior. Can't wait to get it done.

Wish I Still Had It.. A Sleeper — Dark Tourqoise metallic with factory white vinyl roof... It was the 500 series... Loved the roof line to the trunk... My first car in 1972...Only had a 318, but that was enough... Bucket seats, big trunk for hiding friends into the DRIVE IN MOVIES !!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Built for the drag strip, easy and cheap to work on at 43 years old

Cons

inadequate brakes, some important parts were 1-year only items

A Big Block Mopar From The Super Stock Era Is The Way To Go — The '62-'65 cars aren't as popular as the '66-'74 cars most people think of as true muscle cars, but this is how it began. Styled in the interim years after Virgil Exner left but before Elwood Engel fully took over, they're a little plain but that doesn't matter much when you're packing a 426 Max Wedge. They're more go than show with a certain sleeper aspect (The Little Old Lady from Pasadena drove a '64 Plymouth). Once you upgrade the brakes to handle the weight and power this car is great, reliable, and fast, though watch out when cornering. There's a lot of weight up front so wet roads and a limited slip can make any intersection feel like Dead Man's Curve. Still, they're smaller than '66-up Mopars so they'll hold the road better when it's dry. Aftermarket support of the '62-'65 Mopars has really hit the scene in the last 5 years making them a good choice for restoration, racing, or daily commuting.

The Gyromatic trans is GREAT when in a parade or line of traffic! The vacuum assist works great; for a big, heavy car, it stops well. Power steering would have been nice but don't think it was availab... Read More
