As Seen on Craigslist – 1961 Dodge Phoenix

As Seen On TV Logo copy

There’s something about this ungainly car that I like.  I think it’s the juxtaposition of the swoopy roofline and jet-age tailfins with that bulldog-ugly jawline.  The color wouldn’t be my first choice, but the plain steel wheels and complete chrome and trim put it over the top.  I can honestly say that I’ve never seen one of these cars in person (I don’t have the numbers handy, but I don’t think the early-60s Mopars sold well or held up well over time), so you’d probably be the only one at your local cruise-in with one.  Relative rarity isn’t always a good thing, but it might be in this case.
