1962 Plymouth Savoy
Joe Fay writes:
This 1962 Plymouth Savoy is an absolutely rust free California car that I bought in September 2000 with about 130k on the 318 wedge engine and an excellent push button transmission.
The Savoy is very straight, having never been in a accident, only wearing roughly five minor parking lot dings.
I picked the Savoy up on Reno, Nevada and drove it to Chicago without a hint of trouble: that's 2200 miles. Having no radio it got a little boring in the Desert.
This car is in unbelievable condition, it rides like a new car and doesn't have any rattles.
Since being purchasing it has required no mechanical work. I have had the seats reupholstered in a heavy gray taxi like vinyl, repaired the sun visors and repainted the dash.
Current plans are to repaint it in Chrysler White, its original color.

The Plymouth now resides in California (El Segundo). It will become a Police Car, as it has most of the package in it.
Great find, Joe!
As you found out, the '62's are wonderful B Body Mopars!
RE Update: Waho! 10-4 there David! Good idea!
Look forward to future developments!
