How's this for an odd ball Jack This car may make more sence to you than me
As you know Plymouth based DeSotos sold here ex-Canada ran with a flat head six. But mine was fitted with a Hemi V8 from the factory. Still RHD though; still ex Canada.
The interior was up-spec and nicer than the others running a six.
I wont say what happended to that car, but even to this day it makes me feel ill just thinking about it.
