I have absolutely everything to put it together.
Bumpers have been rechromed.
Many NOS parts.
3 61 Belvedere parts cars
Next will be to change out flawed sub frame with a detailed
sub frame with manual steering and bigger 63 300 brakes.
Will post progress pics if anybody is interested?

The guys from Rocket restorations stopped by.
I was trading some Mopar muscle parts for some
NOS 61 parts
They shot some video of my 61 Plymouth collection
for their you tube channel while they were here.
Special thanks to Rocket Restoration.
I’ve gotten many quality parts and cars through them.

It’s been raining for over a month here EVERY DAY
I bought this Rusty 61 Fury coupe that was abandoned in the forest.
Sight unseen. Can’t get out to it because the trail is too wet.
I will get stuck. Have to wait til spring.
Has a aero wheel and some good trim.
Unknown motor?

Eat 5 for 5, that's pretty cool. I like the plates that have meaning. It gives character to the car. One of my '56 Furys says J|K 056, or Just Kidding '56.
My Copper '57 Windsor is from Watsonville too. I wonder if it would be the same dealer as what you show there.
I like how you added black to the hub caps. Looks pretty good and makes it stand out.

Nathan I didn’t paint the hubcaps they are NOS
The paint is always washed off.
I have been to SEVERAL different states collecting 61s
I have 18 61 Plymouths
10 60-64 Chrysler parts cars.
A room full of NOS/mint 61 parts
I have ALL the parts many times over
to start several 61 projects.
I plan to start this spring on this Belvedere
coupe.
I have no illusions of being able to finish all these
projects in my lifetime.
I sure enjoy them while I’m still here.
I’m a big fan of all 60/61 Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge cars

That's interesting. The '62 cars definitely didn't have those circles painted. I have pictures of '62 Chryslers in ads with them unpainted. But it sounds like they were painted in '61. I din't know there was a difference between the two years.
