I wanted to tell you about the car that I am currently restoring/improving. It is a 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury by the VIN # although it wears Belvedere side trim.

Plymouth on the way to have the engine installed

I bought it in California while working there in 1997....

It had been through some interesting owners and configurations apparently which I slowly realized as I worked my way through the resto. I am currently about 2 weeks away from debuing it at the track (it will also be street legal once I get some exhaust on it). I'll list some details below:

It has been a lot of hard work and money and time and I couldn't have done it without the help of a couple of friends and their vast experience and knowledge (Rich Sayell and Bob Dyer). I definitely should thank my wife also, her small hands have come in handy more than a couple times.

Now I just can't wait to run it and enjoy it to the fullest.

Keep up the good work, it is very much appreciated. I have used your site as a reference for parts sources often.


Thought I would drop a line to let you know how I made out with my 64 Plymouth at the track.

I have made a total of 8 passes so far and have run a best of 12.36@113mph.

It is definitely a blast to drive and I must now start the process of dialing in my driving as well as tuning the car. I hope to be able to get close to another second off the ET.

No major problems with the car with the exception of a roasted shifter cable which caused me to attempt to launch in neutral on my third pass.

I replaced that and all seems fine since.

Thanks Bob, for the kind words about the web site and for sharing details about your great Plymouth.

Now you have gone to the track and had the initial break in of the car. I'm sure that was thrilling and terrifying at the same time!

Thanks for keeping us posted.

You sure are having a deservingly grand time with your 1964!
