Description
Lot #770 - According to some Chrysler historians and factory racers, Chrysler Execs Tom Coddington and Tom Hoover (the team responsible for the 426) wanted to introduce a performance motor with 2 inline 4bbls in a smaller car. it would use the same high nickel block as the 'Max Wedge' but be more streetable. As told by people involved at the time, the Chrysler reps were encouraging some of their dealers to special order a few of these motors in a few select cars in 1962. It's belived that fewer than 50 of the cars were actuallly built and were actually pulled from the assembly line for the special motor install. Since this was a special motor configuration and not part of the normal factory offerings, the build card for this car states 'NA (not available)' where normally the engine is listed. Like the later 1968 race Hemi cars, these cars were built from cars that were pulled form the assembly line before the drive trains were installed and do not correspond with their fender tags. It is also told that these reps were encouraging unusual color cominations for these car s and this one is a beautiful 2 tone. While Plymouths built prior to 1965 have very few records the Chrysler Historical Society was able to find the 'build card' on this car and it does indeed show 'NA' for the engine. This is rare find with 27,000 actual miles.
