1964 Plymouth Savoy

September 2016 Mopar of the Month

John writes from Florida: My 1964 Plymouth Savoy is an original "little ole lady" 40,000 mile south Texas beauty, absolutely rust free and accident free.
It had one correct WW1 repaint (base coat/clear coat), with all the chrome redone and stainless polished, when the Mopar was restored / built in 2005 as a Super Stock tribute.

Other features include a Moon tachometer; Cragar SS wheels*, and Pro-Trac period-correct bias ply tires; authentic Super Stock single headlight grill; 18 spline Hemi A833 four-speed; new Brewer Hurst shifter; Lakewood steel bellhousing; aluminum flywheel; Centerforce clutch; TTI headers and 3 inch TTI exhaust all the way back to the rear bumper; Dana 60 rear with 3.54 SureGrip and correct pinion snubber; welded subframe connectors and Super Stock rear springs. *(I also have American Racing Torq Thrust wheels for the Savoy and interchange them when I feel like it.)

The interior is all new and factory correct in the original light blue.
(I have a stock Savoy steering wheel that I use when I show the Plymouth.)

Thanks to my wife Patty (next to me here) who has put up with
(and fully supports) my car obsession for 39 years!

I have owned a lot of cars in my day, but this Plymouth Savoy Hemi is a scary-fast
elephant: 676 flywheel horsepower at 6500 RPM and an 11 second quarter mile!
