Loudmouth: 1977 Plymouth Volare

1980 was a strange decade to modify cars.  Folks looking to hot rod a couple year old car (probably their previous daily driver) didn't have the same choices for classic steel that the folks from 10 years ago had -- and so they did the best they could.  Like this 1977 Plymouth Volare Pro Street custom offered for $11,000 in South Jersey, NJ via craigslist.Tip from Rock On!

This thing has a serious Patrick Nagel style going on with the graphics package and I can just hear the Duran Duran blasting on the radio while cases of Tab were consumed.  HER NAME IS RIO AND SHE DANCES ON THE SAND...JUST LIKE THAT RIVER TWISTING THROUGH A DUSTY LAND...EYY, EARL, WE NEED BIGGER TARS...

Powering this menace to society is a 452 cubic inch wedge V8 with a high lift cam, high flow intake, 850 cfm Holley carb and free flowing exhaust mated to a 727 torqueflight auto with a 5000 rpm stall converter.  This all translates to 10.90 @ 122 mph in the 1320 ft sprint...which is pretty fast for a Plymouth.  Any Plymouth.

See another set of painted bumpers?
