Re: 1964 Sport Fury -- "Great Cars of the Sixties"



Mighty nice, folks! 


The 64 Sport Fury was (& still is) my favorite car of that era.  A customer on my paper route bought one with the 426 for his "family car"!  Well, he wanted a race car and his wife liked the looks of the Fury.  Excellent choices and family harmony, right??  Well, the race car part worked out pretty well, and daddy took Street Eliminator at the local dragstrip pretty often.


Unfortunately, mom got kinda tired of going to the grocery store and taking the kids to school in a thinly disguised race car and hubby got a little tired of detuning the car for street use (as well as possible) then tuning it for max race-worthiness every Saturday afternoon!


It didn't take too long for him to get the dealer/sponsor to donate a worn out '62 Plymouth cop car to the cause.  The 426 went into the cop car and the 383 cop  motor got rebuilt and installed into the Sport Fury and they lived happily ever after...


And I got to play pit crew on the former cop car turned racer and had lots of fun...


Sweet memories!

I received written permission from the
