    Building a 60 Plymouth My Way

    Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a big fan of 60 Plymouths. This thread is going to chronicle the work done on a Turquoise Savoy post I bought about 15 years ago, and future work as perform it.

    To start, here are some photos of the car from buying from the original owner in Missouri and drove home. It came with a log book that log everything ever spent on the car, including every drop of gas purchased.

    I had it up to 100 a couple of times, which may have been a little risky on 30 year old skinny bias ply tires in the rain, but I did get car home without issue.

    below are a couple of photos after I got it home.

    Petty Tribute


    All of the trim is on. I bought a 10-circuit wiring harness to replace the 60-year-old stock wiring. I also bought a Competition Engineering aluminum dash to give it that NASCAR look, and a plasma cutter to more easily trim to correct fit. Iíve not yet decided on the gauges, but have bought the switches. The motor is ready and a Passion Performance Hemi 4-speed overdrive transmission ought to be here in another week or so. I found some rattle can blue-green that comes close to matching the vinyl of the seat tops, and Iíll remove and spray the metal interior trim soon. Iíve made a decision on the wheels Ė but not yet ordered them. This is a car that will stay on the lift of the stacker, and go to the races with me for off track duty.

    So the Petty Tribute was sprayed with two gallons of self-etching/Rust stopping/high build primer. First gallon a mustard color and second grey - so we could see how much was being sanded off. 20 man hours of wet sanding with 400 grit later and washed - itís ready to go on trailer and and head to Evansville, In to drop off on the way to Hod Rod Reunion

    I loaded up Petty Tribute car to take to get a gallon of high fill primer sprayed on it. It goes to the wrapper in Indiana when I race in Bowling Green (Hot Rod Reunion) in about 10 days.

    Engine and transmission mocked up and mounts tacked in, I'll have a pro welder come by to TIG them in, along with the wheelie bars on the Thug and shock tower in Pontiac.
