    I am helping a widow out whose husband was a car guy (all brands). While going through the mountains of stuff she gave me all of his books and magazines, in this pile were lots of Chiltons and Motors manuals but the real gem is this magazine, date 1963 has a very nice article on the new for 63 Max Wedge Plymouth.

        If you are into collecting, or just love nostalgia, May of '62 HotRod is a good historical read as well for the Maxie fans.

        As good or better is the Motor Trend August 1962 review by Roger Huntington.
