Here is my 1963 Plymouth:

It is an original 383 Golden Commando stick shift car.

The 383 is in storage and the car is now a 426 Max Wedge.

The Fury has a 833 four speed, with a 391 8 3/4 rear end.

This car is fun to drive, (top down)! Also I lowered the motor compression to run on 93 octane gas. It has very solid original floor boards, (rare for a convertible).
Fantastic, Bob!

On a cool dry day, I wonder how you pick which of these beauties to cruise around in!

Ah, such choices we should all have! :-)

Thanks for helping us bring in the new year and new millennium in Mopar style!
