440 CID BUILT, A727 TORQUEFLITE, 3000 STALL, 3" EXHAUST, SUSPENSION, NICE!!
Mopars have long been known to dominate at the drag strips. They're stuffed with big blocks and shed off weight to trim down the elapsed time of passes down the 1/4 mile. Rarely do you get a car like this award-winning 1963 Plymouth Savoy that not only can make a quick pass down the strip, but also bring home a trophy from the show.
Known for judging some of the finest cars, this '63 Savoy attended the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in November of 2010 and scored an amazing 976 points out of 1000 possible! Walking around this car it still shows just as well. The black paint has a deep shine and rich gloss that looks great on the car's straight sheet metal. There are chrome bumpers that are mounted at the front and rear appearing in like new condition with a smooth reflection. All of the trim and stainless looks good, it's obvious great care has been taken with this car since its build. A Max Wedge scoop gives it that vintage drag racer look, and Plymouth badges on the hood and fenders keep things minimal on the exterior. There are no fancy stripes or large call outs on this car, just a sharp, clean black body that sits on 15'' Crager SS wheels.
Things have been modernized just a little bit in the bright red exterior. The first things you'll notice are the two Recaro bucket seats that are covered in soft red vinyl. That vinyl could be mistaken for leather, and it covers the door panels and rear panels as well, wrapping the cabin in a vivid red. The seats sit on clean, red carpet that stretches from the firewall all the way back to area where a rear seat used to reside, but it was removed to save some weight. Between the seats is a B&M ratchet shifter for the 3-speed automatic transmission. There are a couple of cup holders so you can enjoy your favorite beverage en route to the drag strip, and a fire extinguisher mounted forward of that shifter. In front of the driver, things remain simple with a clean red dash and instrument panel. The instrument panel houses the speedometer and gauges for oil pressure, fuel level, water temperature, and amperage.
The best part about this car is what lies under the hood. Lift that hood and you'll find a 1970 440 cubic inch V8 with a 253643010 casting number, that is topped with 906 heads. The polished aluminum intake is fed by a 770 cfm Holley carburetor with a Mallory distributer sparking the air/fuel mixture. That mixture is squeezed by 10:1 compression, with the spent gasses being handled by Doug's headers and 3 inch exhaust pipes. This big block's power is sent through an A727 Torqueflite transmission with a 3000 rpm stall that turns a 8 3/4 inch rear end, packed with 3.23 gears. Put this Savoy on a lift and you'll find a clean undercarriage that has been beefed up with Hemi superstock leaf springs, Hemi torsion bars, frame connectors, and disc brakes up front with Cordoba spindles.
This 1963 Plymouth Savoy has the right touches for a drag strip warrior, or show field king. It's already proven to take home trophies from Monster Mopar Weekend on more than one occasion. With the 2014 event just around the corner, now is your chance take home some trophies of your own. Call today!
