1963 Plymouth Belvedere

January 2005 Mopar of the Month

Dan writes:  In June 2003 I purchased my 1963 Plymouth Belvedere,
an original California car, from a friend.

The Plymouth was completely stock: everything was there but needed work.
The Belvedere had a 318 Poly engine with a 727 push button automatic transmission,
and power steering.

I repaired the rust and prepped the body for painting, then had a local paint shop
put a two stage paint job, and color sand and polish the new paint.

I installed a 8.75 rear end from a 1968 Plymouth and added a 3:23 SureGrip unit in the pumpkin.

Then I had a 360 engine rebuilt, adding a 625cfm AVS carburetor,
Crane cam and lifters, Edelbrock Air Gap manifold, and a set of coated Hedman Headers.

The carpet came from Trim Parts and the door panels
from Legendary Interiors.

Thanks Dan!

Much deserving of compliments!   smile!
