RE: [GFS] Red original Fury???



Not directly relevant to this topic but, possibly, of interest is a car that I have seen and been told the history of by several independent sources. I spent a few years of my Chrysler career at the Lynch Road Assembly  Plant- formerly the Plymouth plant. I was told of a ' 56 Fury that was built for "Old Patterson" who was, I believe, the division manager or "President" of Plymouth Motors. This car was built with a 300B Hemi and Torqueflite transmission. The car was sold to a foreman in the plant after it went out of exec service. The retired foreman brought the car to the plant in the late ' 70s and I was able to look it over quite closely. A few old timers
were still around at that time and they all remembered the car as being authentic. I can't add any other details but I do know that there was at least one Hemi Fury built.---Joe

I have heard that story -- Mel told Joel that when he was trying to sell him
the car. I doubt the story very much, but nonetheless it is a beautiful car
painted in Viper Red, which really makes the paint jump on that car. I
doubt that is an original Fury either, and the 392 Hemi is doubtless not
original either. Take the stories of any seller with a grain of salt.
When in doubt, you can always get the build record from Chrysler.

Remember, the voting at Carlisle is by the show participants, and that
includes about 2,500 more folks than just the GFS... that's how a
"Christine" wins the Fury class.

Hi all.
There is a red 58 Plymouth Fury on the internet (not for sale) which the
owner claims to be
original factory order red.
He claims it was to be used on the movie Christine, but "was too rare to be
crashed so was sent to
MoPar Mels".
This Fury was owned and restored by a Joel Bourdeaux over 18 years-does
anyone know this guy?
Apparently this red Fury won "Best Fury" at Carlisle last year...is this
true? I was not there. And
I find it hard to believe that the GFS would vote a red Fury as the best
Fury out of all those fine
cars.
The owner also claims that there "was a factory Fury that was a factory
order plum met paint on
Sweden's Ebay last year"...
Talk is cheap....what do you guys think?
Glenn.




it sure is real fury,,it was supplied by mopar mel for the movie as stand in
car,and it was decided to be too rare to be crashed so sent back after the
film to mels were joel bourduex bought the car way back,and spent 18 years
getting it back together,it won the best fury at carlisle show in august
last year, i was told by an old timer on forward look that you could order
even a black and red fury in 58 too,there was a 58 fury on swedens ebay last
year that was a factory order plum met paint,
i have checked all the details before buying the car as it were a lot of
money and everything checks out fine,its had a 392 hemi fitted with dual
carters,and i have just had electronic ignition fitted and some rewiring
done,, check it out at..
