Why build a car from Ma Mopar's lowest-priced B-Body line? Back in 1964, the Savoy two-door sedan was the lightest of all the B-Body body styles, thanks to its three-inch-shorter wheelbase than Dodge's counterpart, the 330 two-door sedan. Plus, there's been a belief among Mopar guys that the '64 Plymouth's front end has an aerodynamic advantage over its year-before and year-after counterparts-which is why more than a few drag racers with '63 and '65 B-Body Plymouths swapped the '64 front end onto them. It's also said to be one reason why Lee Petty entered a '64 Belvedere for Richard to drive in the '66 Firecracker 400 at Daytona.
It also makes for a clean-looking car once finished-and one whose looks will turn heads. That's something that '64 Plymouths all have-especially Savoys like the Gaisbacher's.
