1963 Plymouth Fury Sport Fury on 2040-cars
Saint Johns, Florida, United States
Email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org My goal on this car was to retain all the style of the 63 Sport Fury but upgrade the and handling along with good street manners and lots of performance ( Mission Accomplished ).I started this project with amostly rust free California car, It had leaked water around back window and they had replaced the trunk floor. All the panels and fenderswere rust free as shown in the pictures.I had the car soda blasted down to baremetal while on a rotisserie did the body work required and used all PPG basecoat clear coat in original white. The car already had legendary seats and door panels when I purchased it but I pulled every thing out and started back with Dyna Mat and went over it with thick insulation and then the carpet. I had dashes only rebuild all the padded dash and purchased autometer custom Mopar GPS speedometer Tach,fuel,oil pressure,water temp,transmission temp gauges.Iinstalled the largest heat and air unit that Vintage air offered.The engine isone of my builds (50 years of experience building Mopar engines) with the target of have a decent idle and street manners,running on pump gas. The engine cameout excellent with more horse power than expected 626 HP@6100 RPM and 629 torque@4500 RPM and with the FiTech fuel injection runs out well. The transmission wasbuilt by TCI and is there street fighter transmission and will shift automaticor manually and has there 3400 stall street fighter converter.

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.
We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.
