The car was purchased out of Hemmings Motor News in October 1991.

In the fall of 2000, shortly after returning from the Mopar Nationals, the project started full steam. Glen Melby and Kent Nelson put in over three thousand hours on this project from October 2000 to August 2001.

This Plymouth was finished in August 2001 and driven from Wisconsin to Columbus, Ohio to the Mopar Nationals; the car has 2800 miles on the odometer.

Thanks Kent and Glen,

Your hard work certainly paid off with a stunningly beautiful and fun-to-cruise 1964 Sport Fury!

"Driven" is only appropriate for such a machine!
