16: 1963 Plymouth Max Wedge 426
Another car that you’ve probably never heard of, and with good reason, is the 1963 Plymouth Max Wedge 426. This car was a deeply-rooted effort by the carmakers at Mopar to dominate the drag racing scene. Unfortunately, when the car made it onto consumer applications, it didn’t fare very well. The first problem was the reliability, which was not a Chrysler strong suit around this period. In addition to that, the styling of the Max Wedge was also questionable.
For the average Joe looking for a family car, this one was just a tad bit extreme. Whereas other more comparable models were easier on the eyes, the Max Wedge stood out a tad bit too much. Although sales numbers were decent for the period, you don’t normally see these on the roadways anymore.
