differences between California built Sport Furys
Regarding the "trivia contest" for the differences
between California-built Sport Furys and those built elsewhere, Bernie
the differences I know of, California built conditions listed first:
Pedals - Horizontal texture / design, as
mentioned this morning and verified by various photos.
Cowl vent - A bright cross-hatched screen vs.
a multi row louvered design for the rest - suggest Tom Fox be the arbiter,
quite sure I've seen a photo of his cowl in that left coast condition. Being
from Oregon I'm sure that's where most of his cars came from - he sent
me pictures of his "Fury that Chrysler Forgot to Build" many years ago,
including some before shots, it was an Emerald Green car.
Swivel Seat release levers - they have a ribbed
texture on the top surface, slighty convex too, where the others (that
I've seen) are a smooth chromed surface, don't think they were convex
I'm copying Robert Hinds
here, Technical Advisor for the POC for '59, to see if he can identify any
