'Max Wedge' Plymouth classic car races into Kansas City auction

If you're a classic car collector with a love of stock car racing and drag racing, then this 1962 Plymouth Savoy 2-Door Sedan could be for you.

The '62 Plymouth will auction in Kansas City, US, between March 29-31.

Beneath this classic car's hood is a Max Wedge replica. The first Max Wedge appeared in April 1962, after Chrysler engineers began tests on long-ram and short-ram engines in the 1950s. It measured just 413 cubic inches and offered plenty of power for its size.
