Here a pic of my 61s. The black one on the right is a option loaded red int,383GC 3spd Manuel with hurst floor shift with swivel seats, The green one is a 361 GC green interior 3spd column shift, daily driver, The black one on the left is a 361 GC auto with fairly rust free body. My end goal is which I will use the solid black car with the best of parts from all 3 to make a Black/ with red int,pwr windows,hifi,swivel buckets,3spd floor shifted,355 sure grip, I havent decided on the motor yet. I'm going go 383-4v or 383 crossram or 413 crossram or even a 413 inline 2x4 with max wedge exhaust.

The green one is a daily driver that I just took on a 250 mile trip with no problems. Previous owner had dechromed It I'm going reinstall the trim. Runs like a top . The best part is when I go to the store or pull into the gas station. Even non car people will ask what is that? I always tell everybody that it's a surviving 60 1/2 Impala concept autorama car. They seem to believe that One of the problems of FLs I'm learning is there very addictive. You can't have enough parts cars. First I get the first 61 then a second to help make one out of the 2,then a 3rd !!! Then I decide to make 3 out the 3,so I get a 62 300 2dr for parts car,then I decide that it's too good to part so I start getting parts cars for the 300!!!!! I get 2 63 300s for parts and now have a lines on about half dozen more 61-62s parts cars to drag home! I'm going to be starting a restoration soon of black with white top Fury and would appreciate all the advice and opinions that you guys have to offer. I have owned hundreds of cars over the years but have always sold them along the way. The will be my first attempt to fully restore a car.

A little 411 the '61 plymouth never had a floor shift when these cars rolled off the assembly line back in 61. Some one had that put there its not factory Stick will be 3 on the tree and auto will be the push buttons

I've seen a pic of a 61 dodge with the same shifter.? The original owner was a Chrysler exc in 61. The car has other oddities like max wedge exhaust,and swivel seats ? I spoke with a neighbor in late 50s who remembers playing with seats when he was 5. So they were in there early on. I think I'm going try to get ahold of the original owner and ask him about the car. It's probably just a back in the day hot rod but I'm going to keep the floor shift in and the swivels. Driving the green colum shift manuel is fun,but can be a chore when driving in traffic or hills.

Here are your pictures posted with the .jpeg extension changed to .jpg.

I really like the look of the black one. Put some dog dish caps on it, and it would suit me very well.
