„DeSoto ended in 1961, and the Plymouth and Dodge were downsized for 1962, leaving Chrysler and Imperial as their only full size cars. Dodge dealers demanded a large car again, as the new smaller model wasn’t selling well enough for them.
Mid-year ’62, Dodge introduced the Custom 880, the one above being the third year for the 880. There surely wasn’t much time to design a new car, so the first model used a combination of existing parts. But as shown here in the third model, it has it’s own identity.“ (Source: Hugo90)
