I wonder why a Crysler/Plymouth dealer would run a ford engine. I`ll call Lynn Horner and ask.

Had a great conversation with Lynn and it gets complecated . After Grumm crashed Toby made it 4 to 6 inches longer.The Ford engine was from the prievous car. Joe sold this car when he bought the Dealership in 66. Later that year the owner went bankrupt and Joe bought it back at the sale. The HEMI went in for 67.
