    A few years ago a 62 Chrysler was at the SEMA show.It was red with gold wheels and was set up for drag racing. It was so cool, everybody that passed by loved it. I was hoping to see it show up on a track somewhere.. Never saw it again.

    I believe Ma Mopar gave him the wagon as a support vehicle.

    I think you are right. They send me a bill every month for my tow vehicle.

    My neighbor,now well into his 90's raced boats in So Cal in the 60's. He said, "Chrysler gave us a new Chrysler New Yorker Station wagon every year and as many "HEMI" engines as we wanted''............

    How about a Hemi? There's a German Mopar brother with a old school Hemi in a C body and he lives to drag it

    I briefly had a magazine with a feature on this car. It was around '88, but it gave me the warm and fuzzies, so I remember it well...

    I think it had an offset ground stroker crank and was a 526 inch RB with B1 heads and intake with a 1050? Dominator; It was built by Landy Industries, it still had leaf springs, the interior was gutted along with the original side glass and regulators. It ran 9.60s at 144mph in the quarter. After it ran the car was swarmed by people coming to check it out.
