1963 Plymouth Savoy

I bought this car in 1993 as a 93,000 mile six cylinder three speed standard.
I always wanted a push button car so I changed it over and built the 440 engine with a 3500 stall convertor and 4.10 gears.
I installed a Road Runner K-member and it moved the engine
back about two inches.
The car has run a best of 12.12 @ 114 m.p.h. at the Texas Motorplex with the first (high comprssion) engine on M and H street tires and through mufflers, with 1.62 sixty foot times.
Now using a lower compression piston, this is a super fun street car and my wife and I really love to drive it around Ft. Worth.
I can't thank you enough for the recognition. Love them '62-'65 Mopars!
Keep up the good work....
I was lucky enough to see your car in person and double lucky to watch it go through the paces down the 1/4 mile.
The Plymouth certainly looks awesome standing still AND in motion!
I was also very fortunate to meet you and your wife. I can't think of nicer folks.
Congratulations on your fine Plymouth!
And thanks for keeping the early B's on the drag strips and streets!
