1964 Plymouth Fury

April 2011 Mopar of the Month

Phil writes: My 1964 Plymouth Fury 426 Max Wedge was built by my brother, Bob, and his son, RJ, while I was living out of the country. When I returned they had the car up for sale. This Mopar is so nice that I just could not let it leave the family, so I bought it.

This Fury is painted Dodge Bright White. The pictures just don’t do the paint justice. Bob and RJ did a great job on it!

We had the correct max wedge exhaust manifolds but they created too much heat and scorched the decals on the valve covers so we installed a complete TTI exhaust system.

The Fury was part of our Mopar club’s display at the 2010 Autorama car show in Salt Lake City.

Only the Mopar faithful and a handful of Chevy guys get the license plate.

The Fury won the best Muscle Car award at the 2010 UVU Auto Expo, one of the biggest shows in the state.
I was quite pleasantly surprised that it beat out nearly 350 other entries in the class, including all the Camaros and Mustangs that usually win.

The Fury was also chosen to be part of the 2010 Concours de Elegance at Thanksgiving Point, Utah.
The cars were pre-screened so being invited to participate was an honor.

The Mopar always draws a good crowd.

The Fury was at the Autorama show in March 2011 where the Mopar won a Best in Class award in one of the largest classes at the show.

So do I drive the Fury or my 2009 Challenger SRT8? Tough choice!

Thanks Phil!

That is a great example of keeping a fine Mopar safe in the family! Way to go!
