I thought I'd send some recent photos of my pride and joy. I know that the car is not finished yet (are they ever finished?) but I figured visitors to the 1962 to 1965 Mopar Web Site would dig it anyway.

1963 Plymouth Fury

I acquired the 1963 Plymouth Fury a little over two years ago. I had just finished graduate school and was desperate for any Mopar musclecar that I could afford. Even a 383 Roadrunner would have done it for me at that time! I stumbled onto this car at a classic car dealership and from first sight I knew I had to have her. When I told my dad about the car he busted my chops, saying I was buying a 'recruiter car' similar to the cars that Army recruiters drove when he was my age. Needless to say, he changes his tune when he saw the car in person!

Apparently, the car was built by a guy that had passed away and the sheet on the windshield was the only info that came with the car. Some of the details of the engine buildup are still a mystery, but I know much more than I did two years ago! Since finding the Fury, I have been slowly cleaning her up and making the car more showworthy. I couldn't imagine myself owning anything but '62 to '65 Mopar iron.

Doug, that's a great car! 1963 Plymouths are among my favorite Mopars anyway, but you sure have a supurb example.

Thanks for sharing your Mopar with us. It sure brightens up my day to view photos of your ride!
