1962 Plymouth Belvedere wagon

Chris writes from Paris France:

My latest acquisition is a 1962 Plymouth Belvedere 9 passenger station wagon! 1962 Plymouth 9 pass wagon

The car was originally sold new and registered in Monte Carlo, December 20th, 1961.

The wagon is a real export model with an odometer in km/h.

The '62 was housed in Paris since 1978 (at least the licence plates lettering says so) and I'm probably the 4th owner.

The engine is a 318 poly and the Plymouth has a pushbutton automatic TF727 and a 741 type (1820657 casting) 8 3/4 rear open rear end.

The car is very straight and fun to drive, despite not having a front stabilizer bar.

My plans are to use it as a family ride on week ends and/or swap in a stroked LA for some fun.

The 1962 to 1865 Mopar Web site is great an really helpful to keep my car on the road. Thanks!

Vous remercier Chris!

Wow, these are rare in the U.S., so you must draw a crowd whenever you drive the Plymouth in Paris!

A stroker LA is cool, but don't forget the Poly 318 is highly modifiable for more torque.   smile!
