The VerHage MOPAR museum collection of nineteen vehicles are mostly Plymouths & Chryslers since VerHage was a franchised dealer for CP in Holland MI from 1963 until 2009 when Chrysler went bankrupt. VerHage also had a Hudsonville dealership from 1914 thru 2005. Most common model vehicle in the collection is the Barracuda which numbers eight and on our bucket list is to have eleven, one of each model year Barracuda produced, 1964 through 1974 inclusive. A quick tidbit on each vehicle listed in Hagerty drive share:
The '64 barracuda has been in our collection since 1973 50 years! 273 V8 2 barrel with 180 horsepower
The '64 Fury was sold here new in May of 1964 salesperson Rich VerHage. 383 V8 4bbl duals 330HP
The '53 Imperial is HEMI powered with a 331cu. in. V8 two barrel carb producing 180 horsepower.
All drive share cars include automatic transmissions and two of them are pushbutton like a typewriter!
Many of Mopars in the MOPAR collection have been drag raced at area drag strip events for stock muscle cars and all vehicles are fully operational and ready to drive and all driven annually. All can be seen at the MOPAR museum on site next to VerHage Motors Sales & Service with one exception, a '34 DeSoto Airflow on display at the Gilmore car museum. Also donated to Gilmore in Lloyd Verhages' memory was a '55 Imperial Crown coupe. Go to Verhage motors .com for a complete list of all the museum cars.
