The 1962 -1965 Large Mopars
Welcome to the section of the 1962 - 1965 Mopar Web site where the big Mopars roam.
The Chrysler line in these years remained as large size cars. But Chrysler Corporation mistakenly thought the competition at Generic Motors was downsizing their 1962 Chevy line. Chrysler downsized the Dodge and Plymouth lines for 1962 as a result. The first B Body Mopars were the result.
Unfortunately for Chrysler, the rumored small Chevy turned out to be the Chevy II.
In retrospective, the B Body 1962 Dodge and Plymouths are perfectly proportioned vehicles, downsized years before the public was ready for them.
In 1962, however, Dodge and Plymouth sales fell, as the public wanted a bigger car that year. Responding, Dodge rushed out a 1962 Custom 880 model. The 880 was really a 1961 Dodge front clip mated to a 1962 Chrysler body. These are pretty scarce Mopars today. Plymouth had to wait until 1965 to get a stretched out car, the fabulous 1965 Fury.
The more I learn about these big brutes, the more I like them! I'll add more material as fast as possible.

1965 Chrysler Production
Though technically a Chrysler badge, we all know the 300 letter cars are very special Chryslers!
The non-letter Chrysler 300's were more of a trim than a performance package, but still awesome Mopars.
