Found a 1976 Plymouth Sport Fury

Welcome to FBBO from NorCal Sierras
good luck & I hope you enjoy the journey with your new ride
Hi there can you post more pictures of the car like a side view ? A profile… ? I’ve never seen one of these and I’m liking it
Thank you! Here's a side view, I'll definitely post more pictures when I can :)

Did a little clean-up of the Fury! I had one of my friends (a professional detailer) use a heavy-duty cutting compound on it to get rid of some of the oxidation on the paint and bring back the color. I think he did a fantastic! You can see the difference between the hood's left side and the right side. I'll post a picture when I get a chance of what it looks like now that a lot of the color is back!


Dukes of Hazzard, anyone?

Apparently, the door latch return spring that operates the lever broke in my driver-side door. I can't get in or out of my driver's side without diving in through my window or awkwardly climbing and falling out of the window. I took off the top half of the interior panel to open the door from the mechanism itself, first with my hand and then with a screwdriver. It hurt. And, it didn't work! Looks like the seats are coming out. I have a replacement latch; I just need to get to where I can replace the one that broke.
Time to loose some skin on your forearms.
To me, this is just as enjoyable as someone restoring a concours number-matching one-of-whatever high-dollar car. I love her interest and enthusiasm ! Keep it up !
Welcome from Ohio. Start a build thread in the member's builds section. Cool car in great shape

My sentiments exactly.
I guess nobody informed her of the "sad demise of American car culture!"
Way to go Ari!
Welcome from NY.

Hi everyone!

We're facing facing a real tragedy here with my '76 Sport Fury... or maybe I'm dramatic... but, the paint on my hood and trunk is gone, and it's starting to rust. I need to know what the paint code is, the factory wrote "emerald green" underneath the hood. I have my fender tag (there's two of them), but I don't know how to decode them. Thanks in advance! :)

Here are the pictures of the fender tags that were in the original post. If you guys need clearer pictures, just let me know!

Hi Ari, a close up of this tag will help get the paint codes, but I think I see F2 which would be Jade Green Irid.

Welcome from Alabama, amazing that they sold a whole car at a junk yard. Most just want to sell parts until they crush it. Glad you saved it.
