Suddenly

This particular 1957 Plymouth was built as a replica to the original Wally Parks drove for speed trials in 1960. She is powered by a fuel injected Chrysler Hemi and wears the paint and graphics as it would have appeared in Hot Rod Magazine back in the day. Dave Parks made a couple of passes at the Mojave Mile event in hopes of hitting the 200 mph mark before retiring the vehicle. The car was a bit short of the goal, but sure looked great on the airport runway.

 

Special thanks to Marc Lewis at Hedman Hedders and Dave Parks.
