You have to admit there is something compelling about squatty flared fenders and the concave, air-sucking grille of this '62 Sport Fury Convertible. Oh yeah, we know that the '62 Plymouth was not universally acclaimed as a high-water mark in automotive styling. However, as one rock and roll song of the '60s says, "She's ugly, but she sure can cook," and this HEMI-powered resto-mod wasn't built to be some prissy, pretty thing but rather to wipe the smile off your face with its brute power – 572 inches worth! Meet "The Beast"...
