Chrysler’s big 440 cubic inch V8 provides effortless torque that makes this car feel smaller than it is. It was rebuilt about 30,000 miles ago and includes a new Edelbrock intake and carburetor, an MSD distributor, and a set of fresh exhaust manifolds to seal it up tight. It starts easily and idles with a bit of a rumble to remind you that this isn’t your average luxury barge. It’s nicely detailed with corporate turquoise engine enamel, and you’ll note that correct decals have been affixed to the open-element air cleaner. The 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt four years ago and shifts smoothly, feeing power to a standard 8.75-inch rear end. There’s also a brand new dual exhaust system that has just enough burble to it, and the front end was just rebuilt so it has that trademark Chrysler flying carpet ride. Traditional Rallye wheels are a nice addition and carry 215/70/15 whitewall radials all around.
