1965 Plymouth Sport Fury Indy Pace Car For Sale on Hemmings

1965 was the first (and last) year that a Plymouth was selected as the Indianapolis 500 pace car. The chosen model was the Sport Fury convertible. There were 35 actual pace cars built for the race. Plymouth also produced one replica for each dealership in the country. That number varies between 1,300 and 1,900, depending on who you believe. See a very nice replica for sale on Hemmings. More pics after the jump!

1969 Dodge Sweptline with Cummins Power

Check out the picture below. A nice, clean 1969 Dodge Sweptline survivor that’s probably driven by some old guy, right? You’d only be right about the old guy part. The owner has highly modified his truck to allow him to tow his 53′ boat. Under the hood is a 12 valve Cummins that is sending power to a dually setup thru a 5-speed Spicer transmission which is also backed by a 10-speed Road Ranger like you’d find in a big rig. One seriously cool truck! Check out the story at BangShift. More pictures after the jump.

A Slant Six Gathering

Often referred to as bullet proof, the Chrysler slant 6 engine has developed quite a loyal following. In production from 1960 to 1991, it powered many different vehicles, including this 1963 Valiant.  A recent Slant Six Gathering in San Francisco brought together more than 50 Chrysler vehicles powered by the straight 6 engine with the 30 degree slant. The rules of the occasion: no judges, no trophies, no tickets, no rules. I like it! Find the Slant Six Gathering here. More info on the venerable slant six can be found at Allpar.
