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.

You edit the photos to and make them smaller I usually go to 40 % size . A word of advice of you plan on driving this car every day a word of advice have it appraised before you insure it.

3 fails.

ALL STILL .jpeg files that you know don't work.

You got the <250 kB thing down, now you just need to find out how to change the file name and/or format to .jpg.

This is a pic of my first 61 as I found it . I call this pic ARNIE MOMENT. It was awaiting the crusher until I saved it
It was completely covered in bushes and could not even see it. It had been parked here since 1985. Have more to post. Posted from another device and it converted back to jpeg? I'm working on it

Something kinda unusual about the fury in the above pic is that I was looking in the Darrel Davis sonoramic book and found the serial number listed!! Not as a crossram car but as a 383 4blb car. There were a few police package 383 4blb built and very few fury coupes with 383 4blb. If I read the book correctly there were only 47 coupes built that engine and of that there there were 14 with 3spd Manuel. I haven't been able to find the 383 4blb mentioned in any factory literature expect for police pakage. I've heard that Many of the Plymouth dealers in 61 did not even know about the 383 4v option

In 1960 the 383 single 4v were listed in the ads and mentioned in the magazines. One surprising thing is these obviously didn't have the HP stampings. Does yours?

No, it has a replacement mid 60s 383 2 blb in it. It also oddly has 62 cast max wedge headers on it.

It could have been a government issue car for a government official. The black color and motor match what they typically would have ordered.
