1960 dodge adventurer

Recommended Posts

I believe the 1960 is a first year unibody car, while that Chrysler is a full frame car. I'm sure someone here can suggest a better chassis, maybe one of the Moebius Mopars.

One of the Mopars Moebius should make, yes, i.e. the 300F and G.

Besides being a unibody, the '60 Adventurer is a DeSoto, not a Dodge.

I thought that only the Valiant ( note : not called "Plymouth" until 1962 ) was unibody for 1960 ? 

The then-new A-Body line was also the first line to receive an aluminium cast transmission case : the A-904-G .

I believe that the remainder of the cars lines were full frame until 1962 with the introduction of the then-new B-Body ; the C-bodies were unitised ( used a subframe through the end ) ; and the 1964 Imperial ( D-Body ) was the last full framed Chrysler .

All Mopars became unibody for 1960, except the Imperials, which proudly remained body-on-frame until 1966.

I was off a year in regard to the Imperial . 1965 was the last of the D-Body ; the Imperial being 'absorbed' into the C-Body line in 1966 .

Off by a year again.  The last year of the BOF Imperial was '66.  '67 was a unibody C-body.

Ok.

But the one pictured in your original post is still a '60 Desoto.

Do you have pics of the Dodge?
