    A big howdy from sunny Oklahoma.
    Long time lurker, long time dreamer.

    Well, I've always been a Plymouth man. Dad bought a new '63 Plymouth wagon when I was 4yrs old. Man, I loved that car. Since then, I was hooked and have always wanted a '63 for as long as I can remember.

    Last Saturday, I found a '63 Fury 2dr and will pick it up this week.
    Zero rot, ex-California car. Excellent body. Still has factory light blue paint.

    I'm having a hard time sleeping. I can't wait to get it in my garage.
    Has a late model 318 swapped in place of the poly. Also has all the chrome from a doner car including the windshields and bumpers.
    Looking for a 440/trans.

    I feel it's a good place to start.

    Here are a few cell phone pics:

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    I'm an old guy at 52 but have been feeling 16 again.
    I've been looking for so many years, nearly settling on 4drs and cars w/rust.
    It had to be a 63 Fury!
    I could have spent the bucks for a nicer, partially restored car but I'm glad I held out.

    Plans are to start looking for a 440/727 and start on the resto.
    Gonna loose the Cragars. Looking for steels and dog-dish caps.
    It currently has a mildly built 318 out of a Diplomat which will find a new home in my Jeep.


    More pics to come.

    Ronnie,
    I'm up in Broken Arrow, the cooler part of the state.
    Man, I'll be glad when this heat spell breaks.
    It's hot and dry everywhere.
