1963 Plymouth Fury

James writes: This 1963 Plymouth Fury is a work in progress. The original owner (our late father) handed this Mopar down to me and I am in the process of an update/upgrade. I am looking to change the Poly 318 engine to a 4 barrel and need an intake manifold. I understand that factory cast iron intake might be better for a "normal - non racing application" but I also hear the aluminum intake runs cooler. I am also looking for aluminum valve covers, and looking to add A/C but I need the compressor mounting bracket(s). More to follow as work progresses!

Would welcome helpful insights/advice!

Update June 2013

I am still working on my 1963 Fury. I expect refurbished dash and arm rests in July. I should receive the refurbished instrument cluster bezel next week.

Update January 2014

I have added a VintageAir a/c unit; restored the dash pads and arm rests (“Just Dashes“); and replaced the steering wheel. Next I will be switching from a 2bbl to a 4bbl.

Update December 2014

Santa brought some presents to My Plymouth this year!

The new air cleaner is a K & N X-Treme Airflow 14 inch top, with chrome surround, 3 inch tall filter and drop base. I needed to do a little tweeking on the base to accommodate the electric choke on the Edelbrock 1406 four-barrel carburetor.

I also upgraded the alternator to 100 amps to accommodate a high volume radiator (with two fans) (now being installed) and the Vintage Air unit already on board.

Thanks James! A perfect Mopar to stay in the family. Your dad had good taste in Mopars and I am sure you will take care of the Fury, as he would -- and have fun with the car as well.   smile!
