1965 Plymouth Savoy

Brian writes from Ontario Canada: In October 2016, I purchased a 1965 Plymouth Savoy as my first classic car.

It has been a long road trying to get myself into the classic car hobby. My father and I are restoring a Canadian-built 1964 Dodge Polara 500, together that has been in the family since almost new. He also has a 1961 Chrysler 300G. I grew up around both cars and had wanted one of my own for as long as I can remember.

Dad's Mopars are great. But to stay within my budget, I decided early on that a bare-bones 4 door sedan was a good candidate, as long as it was a really clean survivor.

Although I have had my eye on this Savoy for five years, I have looked at several other cars. All mid-1960s Mopars. None came anywhere close to the shape this Plymouth is in -- and all were upwards of twice what I wanted to pay. My Savoy needs some work but it is a great start.

Even though the Plymouth is a base model, the Mopar has onlly 28,000 miles and is almost all original. Pretty remarkable for a Canadian car! I plan on cleaning everything up and make it the best I can without spoiling the originality too much. The Plymouth will not be a show winner but hopefully something I will be proud to bring to car shows and cruise nights. A nice clean driver.

This Mopar is a pretty uncommon car. Most people look at me like I have two heads when I tell them I own a 1965 Plymouth Savoy!

Future plans are swapping the radial tires for period bias plys along with fixing the rust issues.
