The 1963 426 Max Wedge-powered Plymouth was an uncompromising factory racer that, in the words of the company's sales brochure, was "designed to be run in supervised, sanctioned drag-strip competition by those qualified....Yet, it is stock in every sense of the word." Powered by "the best performing engine to come off a production line," the Max Wedge Plymouth was the logical progression from the 1962 413ci version.

Along with aluminum front fenders and bumper, the car's alloy hood featured a large dual-inlet scoop feeding two high-flow Carter 4-barrel carbs bolted to a cross-ram intake manifold. Despite the engine's mass, an aluminum-bodied Max Wedge car weighed in at only 3,200 lbs.

On the track, the big-block Plymouth won everything in sight and helped raise the profile of Super Stock racing to main attraction status. This 1963 Max Wedge, a gem from the Reggie Jackson Collection, demonstrates the roots of that winning formula. Ermine White with a Blue bench seat interior and push-button Torqueflite automatic, its aluminum front sheet metal includes the scooped ram-air hood, and the American Torque Thrust wheels are perfectly period-correct.

Highlights:

- 426ci Max Wedge V-82x4bbl Cross Ram
- Aluminum front end
- Push-button Torqueflite automatic transmission
- American Torque Thrust wheels
- From the Reggie Jackson Collection
