    Remember the Price is Right Program that Aired on TV in the 60's??

    The ridiculous part about the letter cars was that optioned correctly they were more than an Imperial. I also wonder what the lady who won would do the first time she put it to the floor at 40 mph? That is were the long rams developed there maximum torque. Nick on Nicks garage dynoed a 63 short...

    Dodge 880 questions and performance

    Several things 1) The name of the movie was "it's a Mad, Mad, Mad World." 2) I am old enough to remember these pre- 65 Mopars. If driven reasonably sanely (which most people do anyway) they were utterly reliable and great handling cars in stock form. For the observant members among you, my...

    NOT MINE Win a 1964 Dodge Custom 880 convertible

    You got to love our supposed free society. Anything they can do to remind us of their grasp at total control they will do - down to taxing your dreams. I am glad i am 76. I would have loved to win this Dodge.

    Anyone want to discuss This??

    As you can tell by the picture of my beloved 64 Imperial. i am a 60's Mopar guy. Not those overpowered stupid B abd E bodies but the full size Chryslers for which the wedge engine was originally designed for.

    140 mile road trip

    I assume that is a 61 Newport not a Windsor? I had a used 61 newport many years ago and it was fast!

    I am sorry to say mine is a 2001 Lincoln Town car. My wife's is a 1978 Buick Riviera. My 64 Crown (pictured at left) was sold several years ago to pay doctor bills. Does this mean I have to leave this site? LOL

    Anyone want to discuss This??

    Pure and Simple. My dad drove Imperials from 1956 to 1973. In 76 he bought a NYB. I have had two Newports and a NYB St Regis in thriple dove gray. I wish Chrysler still made real cars rather than unafforable ones and electric cars (from Chrysler)?

    Im looking at buying a 63 newport have lots of questions

    Whoever said that a final drive ration would make the 361 2 barrel come alive is quite correct. I drove a 64 through the mid 60's sold it and bought a 61. The only difference was the axle ratio. 64 had a 2:76 61 had a 2:93 O- 60 for the 64 was around 11 seconds whereas the 61 was regularly...
