Mopar Sleeper

from Michael S Moore in Northern California:
"This is the 1964 Belvedere I dragged out of the woods in Colorado around 1992 to stuff a 440 into and drive, eventually, to California. I was the third owner; it never quite got sorted out [a sordid tale for another time] and I ended up selling it to a Mopar aficionado from Fallon, Nevada, after we moved to Benicia. In terms of the front suspension it would have been a better idea to settle for a 383 or even a 360 [like Judd's truck] but what did I know?  A fun car, four on the floor and, um, fast.

"The last thing I should have said about that '64 Belvedere is "gone but not forgotten"--MSM
