She'll start, you'll need these. R. Lebay.I have a few 61s, this one here,I nick named (the BLACK HOLE) because it's black,full of rust holes, and will be $ dumpster. It's a very unusual high option 61 that was owned by a Chrysler exc in 61. It's a GC 383 4v with 3speed Manuel which Plymouth did not advertise as available other than police package cars. According to Darrel Davis book there were only 47 383 4v 61 coupes built. (14 3 speeds) It has power swivel buckets,even though there not supposed to be available. (Maybe dealer installed?) power lwindows,HIFI stereo,rear defogger,bumper tie,aero wheel, and 1961 hurst yoyo floor shifter. I have seen a 61 dodge,motor trend magazine that had the same shifter installed in it by Chrysler? It also has 62 cast max wedge headers.
Here are a few pics of the 61 as I first found it. I was told by a freind to check out this ugly Edsel that was going to be scrapped. It was completely covered with brush. I removed 3.5 40 gallon garbage cans of rat chit and discovered max wedge manifolds.

Lads --I've heard that to. It has that correct auto colum and the push button delete. Stick 61s got the round sparkle wheel and autos the square. Because the colum shift got in the way of the square wheel? Somebody mention once that the colum and wheel is black and the dash is red,but then when I started looking online about 50% or of red interior cars had black columns. I was told by a steering wheel recast guy that Chrysler had made more black wheels and was using the supply of what they had?
