For motivation, this Mopar turns to good old Chevy power, in this case a 350 cubic inch V8. It’s a neat fit in the Plymouth’s engine bay and with things like a new 4-barrel carburetor, fresh dual exhaust, and a high-rise intake manifold, it’s a very strong runner. A few chrome pieces dress things up a bit and the bright red paint extends under the hood onto things like the power brake booster. This car also offers power steering so it’s easy to drive and the new dual exhaust system sounds aggressive enough without getting tiresome on the highway. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spins what might be the car’s original rear end, so it’s plenty peppy around town. The underside isn’t detailed for show, but you already know this car was built to drive, not to ride around in a trailer. It has just the right stance and sits on a set of polished wheels and 235/60/15 Goodyear radials all around.
