Hello everybody
after some years spent at rewiring the car...I am finally back to work on the car. After 3 years, spent at his place, I finally brought the car back home and am finishing the resto. Front end was rebuilt and air conditioning was added. It's a vintage unit taken from a junked Imperial. Wheels were sandblasted and are ready to be powder coated. Am waiting for tires to arrive so can finally drive the car around. Seat and carpet were put in the car, and some small parts were ordered from Murray Park, and am waiting for them to arrive.
Will post some pics soon

Do you need new Fury scripts because the old ones are pitted? I´m working on repros...

This pic has a particular meaning to me..it's the first time the car is running and driving under it's own power since 1972. The car was parked in afield in 72, and never driven since. After the engine was rebuilt, it was only driven on and off the tow truck, but no miles were added. Today drove her for about 30 miles without any problem. Still waiting for tires to arrive, some final buffing on the paint and some small scratches to fix, and then it's ready.

molto carina

the plymouth fury are rare in Europe, it's a great save

everyone thinks that fury are red ....... it is a sacrilege to paint a true fury red

your probes are not connected ^^, the needle of the fuel and temperature, are at zero ?

Antonello - respect for the rescue of this car and the way you did it! Quite a dedication you had!
So sad that there is a similar car in my country - Bulgaria - a 57 Savoy 2 dr htp that will never have the luck your Fury had when you bought it.

Gotta do some work on that GAS gauge, Antonello, or else you really DO like to live Fury-ously!

Congratulazioni !!


...Also, the thermostat might be stuck open (engine running way too cool)...that's NOT funny.

Hi Neil
the temp rises too much....when there is some traffic jam the needle goes up . Will have to address this matter as soon as possible
As for the gas gauge, the float seems to be stuck..it's new....put on the car 5 years ago. Will have to check .
Today I brought the car home fot the first time, and it was a great feeling. The engine and trans seem to be fine, needs kickdown adjusted but that's all. Runs a bit hot. Now will have to fix rear leaf springs, Mount turn signal lever and some other small things. Tires have been bought, but when arrived found out they were narrow whitewall. Dams. hate narrow whites on a fifties car. But they are beeter than the mismatched set of tires that are on the car now.

LOL...as you and we-all know, there's always something that needs to be done on/to our cars.

It's a seemingly never-ending ordeal...I mean: HOBBY!

Don't know how multi-car owners can keep their fleet running.

The overheating may well be just caused by a partial blockage in the radiator, as it overheats in traffic but not on the road.

What are the stories about the single exhaust pipe (cut-out), and the mini license plate on the front?

Maybe some OEM Fury owner can send you pics showing how (crudely) the OEM fuel line was bent/formed, between the
fuel pump and the front carb?

Yours looks too nicely bent!

Check out this 300E's fuel line....

If the Fury's were plumbed like the Super D500's, it should look like this:

The license plate was standard for Italy in 58. As for the overheating, maybe the fan is too far from the radiator...don't know yet. But everything can be fixed

It's probably not the fan blade's distance from the radiator, or 'all' of our cars would be regularly overheating.

Note: no fan shroud was/is needed on a non-A/C car, either.

In the above factory photo, you can see that the Chryslers/IMP's got viscous fan clutches on them.

After you resolve the overheating issue, you can easily adapt a JAG XJ fan clutch to the water pump.

The standard-usual fan clutches are 3" deep, which is too deep safely to install a fan blade.

The Jag's clutch is 2 1/2" deep, fits perfectly behind (even a re-cored) radiator, and quiets-down the fan's whang-whang-whang sound,
and provides a tad more performance and MPG....the Big-cars got them; why not the PLY/DOD's???

Wow Antonello...... that's an amazing story and a fantastic restoration. That car is beautiful! You really must be congratulated for all your hard work on that car. I hope you enjoy driving it and showing it.

I see this and I need to get going and make some plans for my own Fury this winter!

Congrats again. Belissimo! (Hope I spelled that correctly!)

it is normal if the needle is for high temperature, the internal instruments are imprecise
I have a 57 plymouth and a friend has a dodge coronet 1958, the needle is very High
but with a manometer or a temperature laser gun then you will see that all is normal
probe on gasoline, I have a second serving not, if you need

No it is not normal for the temp gauge to read high. Mine reads about 1/4 in all but long idling situations when it can go over 1/2. A high reading means either it is hot or you have the wrong temperature sender unit. The instruments are certainly not 'imprecise'. The instruments work perfectly on these cars.

Glenn, my instrument reads about 1/4 in normal traffic, and rised to about 1/2 in prolonged idle. WIll add a set of gauges under dash for peace of mind...but everything seems ok. I installed a 7 blade fan with Thermal clutch from a 70 E body...everything fits ok

That would be perfectly normal to me. I ran a set of gauges under the dash when I first put my Fury on the road, but took them back out after about 300 miles when everything appeared ok.

Antonello, beautiful job on the car!!

I have the same Mark-IV A/C unit and York compressor in my 1960 Chrysler. The round vents are plastic, originally chromed but it was all worn off, as yours appear to be so I painted mine a dark metallic gray finish. I allso got a new compressor this summer from Air-Manufacturing in Texas, they matched up the original compressor as well so I now have cold A/C once more.
