Now the Mopar is a station wagon on steroids!

The Plymouth’s motor is a period correct 413 Max Wedge 13.5-1 compression, 420 HP, running with a 727 transmission and an 8 3/4 rear.

The Mopar was restored by Ralph Cooper of Windsor, Ontario and the transmission was built by Fireball Transmission, Canada.
The Dynamic converter is 3800 stall, but goes to 4200 behind the big block.
