I have owned this Fury for 10 years. It has been a 10 year project.

Very shortly after the purchase, I sent it to the body shop for paint and some rust repair. It only took 3 years to get the car back from the body shop.

The Fury is painted '92 Chrysler Firemist Red. Since the body man didn't do everything he was supposed to, another 6 months lapse while I installed glass, interior, engine and transmission.

So, in 3 1/2 years the only mileage that the car saw was on my trailer.

The Plymouth was originally 318 powered. Since the car came with the 440, I decided the "impact" of the six pack would help with impressions. So it now has a 440 with a six pack and a 727 auto. The differential is an 8 3/4 with 3.23 gears.

Two years ago, I had the interior redone. This time it was only 6 months (it was OK as that was 6 months during the winter.

The work isn't complete. I have a long list of "want to do's" to the Fury. 1964 Plymouth Fury convertible

But I also have a few other projects....

I want to commend you on the fine Web site. I have spent a great deal of time wandering the virtual car show. Thank you for your time and efforts.
Thanks, Denny!

Body shop work is notoriously slow when it comes to restoration. The insurance work on current cars typically take preference.

Glad to hear the car is out and you are obviously driving and enjoying it. How could you not enjoy a '64 Fury 'vert big block six pack car?  smile!
