This is a photo of Pauley Motors in Shelton, Washington circa 1963. Yes they only had this many cars on the lot at one time, not every dealer can be Mr. Norm’s selling hundreds of cars a month! They were a Dodge only dealer until 1972 when they took over the Plymouth franchise from another dealer in town. They closed down the business around 1978 during the Chrysler bankruptcy.
Nice to see these older B-bodies getting some respect! More pics after the jump!
Steve Magnante daily drives a Slant 6 1963 Dodge Dart GT twelve months of the year in Massachusetts. It was originally a California car, so the body is pretty good, though the interior is a bit rough. Steve gives us a quick look at his old Dart in this recent episode from the Dart Road Trip series on the official Dodge Youtube channel. My first car was a Slant 6-powered 1963 Valiant convertible with a pushbutton tranny, so I am a big fan of these old A-bodies. Video after the jump!
I already showed you this guy’s review of a Plymouth Superbird. Well this time he takes a close look at a 1963 Chrysler Imperial. That is a lot of steel! There is a reason these things were banned from so many demolition derbies (though that generally applies to the 1964 – 1968 cars)! Video after the jump!
The seller claims this old B-body vert has just 63,000 miles and was fully restored in the early 2000s. All I can say is it’s a knockout. 361 power, push button tranny! Have mercy! More pics and ad text after the jump! Or check it out on eBay
Update: this got bid up to $17,099 but reserve not met! I think if I was the seller I would have held, too!
Now this is a great story. Check out the ten page thread at VWVortex!
