    Hi all,

    Back in early 60s I had a 383 63 Sport Fury, Hearst 4sp. Someone had set it up for drag racing. I had a flat bottom with a 383 at the same time. 4 speed was not good for launching a boat.
    45 years later I found another 63, total frame on restoration. I will be looking for advise along the way. Have also done 34 Hudson Terraplane and 32 Plymouth 2dr. sedan. Quasi rat rod.
    Tom

        Welcome to FBBO from Ontario. Good luck with your project Fury. I loved those cars when they came out. I was a 16 year old gear head in 1963. My mom was going to buy a new car that year, and I tried so hard to get her to buy a new Plymouth. She ended up with a new Meteor instead, her fourth. Get to know Joe Suchy in Dalton, Georgia. He is Plymouth guy who has a business selling repro and used parts. Nice guy to deal with. Jim Kramer in Pa. also sells stuff for these cars. Classic Industries in L.A. has a good Mopar repro parts catalogue.

          I was not sure if your attached picture was your actual car, or picture of what you hope to achieve. Anyways, I absolutely love the '63/'64 Fury in that shade of Copper. Beautiful!
