1964 Plymouth Fury
Ron writes: This is my brothers 1964 Plymouth Fury. His name is Gary Nies and he has owned the Mopar since
The Plymouth has been backhalfed and has basically been a race car all of the time Gary has owned it, until last year.
The Furys best E.T. is 10.44 @ 128.
The Plymouth runs a 451 that uses 915 heads he ported himself at 11.5
compression. Gary built the engine and transmission and car himself.
The engine has the Mopar Performance .620 cam and uses and a M1 intake
with a Dominator carburetor. The 727 uses a Turbo Action 8 inch convertor and
a reverse manual valve body. A Dana with 4.88 gears in it puts the rubber
to the pavement.
The Plymouth has a full roll cage and racing seats; the Mopar weighs 3370 pounds without a driver and has glass hood, fenders and front bumper.
As noted above, in 2006 he backed the timing down to 32 and put a 3-1/2 inch exhaust system on the car, along with street tires.
The Fury runs on the street with 93 pump gas and he raced the Mopar like that and ran 10.90s in this street trim.
By the way, he also has a 1968 Cuda race car and is currently driving a 1964 Max Wedge Belvedere that his boss owns in B/SA.
Thanks Ron! Very nice Plymouth, Gary!
Keeps Brand X cars on guard, too!
Great Mopars in the Nies family garages!
