    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Originally Bought this 62 300 to use as a parts car for my 61 Plymouth. Nice solid rust free body. Nice door panels,A/C. The previous owner was starting to part it before I got it,so it's missing a few pieces. I'm pretty sure the motor will run, Wrecked 20 years ago when the brakes failed.
    Has sub frame damage. I have located a 62 Newport clip to put on it.
    I have 3 63 300 parts cars to choose from to put this one back together. I'm going to use one of the 63 sub frames and put this one back together on a bit of a budget. Have everything I need to start.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Just picked up this 61 Chrysler with a near mint front clip. It was used as a parts car for 300 G.
    Will use this 61 clip on the 62. The 61 has some nice rust free doors and a few other pieces left.
    No interior.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Going to use this low miles 65 413 out of a imperial with this 62 2x4 intake I got off CL.
    I located a floor shift 361 3 speed Manuel 63 Newport that I want to use tunnel and parts from.
    A budget minded 62 H clone is the goal.

    Your right it is a marine intake. Is there any it wouldn't work on a street car?
    It has the wedges?

    It should work without the wedges. I'm assuming they used a stock height manifold to start with.
