When Chrysler engineered what would become the E-Body muscle cars, they mated the front frame rails from their intermediate sized sedans with the compact body that was the basis of the Valiant, Dart and Duster. That meant that unlike the Mustang and Camaro, the Mopar muscle cars could easily accept big block engines without needing the kinds of underhood sheet metal changes required for the 429 Mustangs and 396 and 427 powered Camaros. Frankly, such a heavy engine sitting over a front end stopped with drum brakes isn’t great for cornering and stopping, but the 440 Six Pack powered Mopars were never really meant to stop or go in any other direction than straight ahead for 1320 feet. Oh, and if you can identify the color as Plum Crazy, you can probably also remember watching the Beatles live on the Ed Sullivan show.
