Now that my 1960 wagon is running and should be ready for the road next, I really don't see the need for having two 1960 Plymouths.  I have done mountains of work on this car to bring it back to the road, all of which is captured in the thread linked below.  If you don't want to go through three pages of details, I will summarize below.

Originally from Montana and parked in about 1985, I purchased this as a non-running parts car.  Originally a 318 with PowerFliter automatic, it now has a 1966 318 Poly V8 with a 1998 Dodge Dakota AX15 5 speed.  I have a small, detailed and organized notebook with all modifications documented so any non-stock part numbers can ordered for future maintenance.  I have done the following work over the past 5 years.

Four wheel disc brakes conversion with dual reservoir master cylinder.  Everything is new other than the steel brake lines.

New starter, alternator and electronic voltage regulator.  Pertronix electronic ignition conversion, new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor.

Vintage factory 4 barrel intake and Edelbrock 500 Performer.  New fuel pump, tank dropped and cleaned out.  New rubber fuel lines and filter.

New water pump, flex fan, hoses, all new freeze plugs in block.  New oil pan and valve cover gaskets.  New dual exhaust.

AX15 completely rebuilt with new synchro rings, bearings, shifter bushing, 3-4 slider, 1-2-Reverse slider, reverse idler gear and 5th gear.  New front bearing retainer and drive shaft.

Power steering added to car.  Used unit purchased from Big M, rebuild by Lares.  New steering shaft coupler.

New Cooper Cobra G/T tires.

Replaced the front windshield (no broken glass in this car now).  Completely rebuild and reupholstered front bench seat.  All floor pans replaced with new metal panels.

This is a good running, nice driving and econonimical car.  It needs work, but everything is there other than carpeting and perhaps a couple pieces of trim.  It doesn't leak a drop of anything and has proven to be very reliable.  I love this car, but not more than my wagon.  I will sell it exactly as it sits now for $5000 (I have twice that invested with documentation), I can come down in price but only if I remove items (example, if I pull the factory 4 barrel intake and carb and the new tires and wheels) that I can use on my other vehicles or future projects.  I will consider trades for other Forward look cars, but I'd be especially interested a 1961 to 1967 Dodge D100 or D200 truck (hopefully stick shift).  I would also be willing to bundle this car with my 1961 Plymouth 2 door sedan that I also have listed for $6500 for both as they sit.  Walkaround videos of the car linked below.
