I am assisting a friend with the sale of this car.
Even though the car is not mine I have extensive knowledge on the condition, parts and all other details including 100's of pictures.

If I didn't already have way too many projects then this Dodge would be in my barn.

The convertible is part of a "package deal" that includes the following:

• 1960 Dodge Phoenix convertible – Project
• 1960 Dodge Phoenix 4-door – Parts car
• Dodge Custom 880 Convertible – Rear clip with ALL convertible specific parts: top brace, rear wheel inner wheelhouses, lower rockers, rear wheelwell lip, convertible top structure / bracing

$2800.00 for ALL the above "package deal"
PLUS included are many boxes of used original parts removed from both cars.
The owner would prefer to sell ALL of the cars and parts as a package deal. If someone is ONLY interested in the Phoenix convertible the price is still $2800.


The 1960 Dodge Phoenix convertible is a rolling shell - Needs Total restoration
Both the VIN and Fender tags on the car.
Body code "535" on fender tag is a real convertible.
The original paint color is “T” which is Tan metallic with matching beige / tan interior

NO Title Sold with Bill of Sale
Originally a 318 with torqueflite auto trans - No engine but trans is still in the car.

There is another 318 poly engine in the 4-door parts car.
The 4-door parts car has a title. Also good front fenders, floors, rockers and rear quarters to use for repair panels.
All of the hard to find convertible windshield moldings, power top mechanism front & rear quarter glass are with the car.


Because of the picture size limitation on the forum only posting a few. I can provide more information and pictures showing details of both cars and the parts.

Serious interested buyers send me a PM or email SpaceWagon@zoominternet.net

In addition I have many 1960 Dodge NOS parts available that would offer to the buyer. The price of those parts would depend on what / which parts are wanted for the car.

The fender tag has upper corner rusted but the important codes are still legible. Attached is picture.

Here is a breakdown of the codes.

BDY: 535 = Dodge Dart Phoenix Convertible with 318 4-barrel engine
TRM: 172 = Brown / Gray Interior
PNT: TT1 T= Fawn Beige paint -ALL


Top Line:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

Code under the numbers
2 is 3
3 is 1
9 is 1
0 is 2


Middle Line:
A B C D E F G H J K L M N P Q R S T V W

Under Letter Codes
A is 3

I believe that the Interior trim Code "172" is the color / pattern shown at the bottom in the 1960 Dodge Dart brochure.

All vinyl in 2-tone color option of Brown / Gray

Thanks for posting the data plate picture;
Some my investigations about ’60 Dodge fender tags built at the St. Louis plant:

Top Line:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

Code under the numbers
2 is 3 = Rear Quarter Stone Shields (413) – not sure
3 is 1 = Radio Music Master (421) – not sure
9 is 1 – (actually 7 is 1) = Windshield Washer (511) – not sure
0 is 2 = Sold Car (602)

Middle Line:
A B C D E F G H J K L M N P Q R S T V W

Under Letter Codes
A is 3 = Torqueflite Transmission (283)
B is 1 = Power Steering (291) – not sure
Q is 5 = Heater (315)
R is 2 = White Convertible Top Color (332)

Yes, you are right; the trim code 172 is two-tone tan vinyl:

Of course like most FL cars the floor is rusted on the Phoenix convertible.

However, as outlined in the description the 4-door parts car has a solid floorpan to use for repair

Price Reduced - NOW $2500


$2500 for the 1960 Phoenix convertible package deal including the parts car and all other items outlined in my for for sale post.

Would also be open to reasonable offers to sell the convertible separately.

Plus many NOS and nice used 1960 Dodge parts available for the project.


Send PM and I can provide additional pictures and details.

No seats, door panels, etc for the convertible what so ever? The car looks pretty close to breaking in half, do the doors even open and shut?

While I can fully understand there will be questions about the project, making unfounded statements are of NO value.

This is why in the original post stated that if interested in the 60 Dodge convertible to send a PM and I will gladly speak with the individual directly to answer any questions and email additional pictures showing details.

@FINS! - are you interested in the project ?

Actually both the main uni-body frame and front sub-frame are in good condition. And YES both doors open & close as does the trunklid

Not sure how either of those questions were unfounded statements? There is very little holding that car together. So there is no interior whatsoever?
