Fw: [GFS] Ebay Fury

Hi Folks,
Got a response on body # & motor #.  Citing his vin which is an Evansville car, he shows his body number to be LP32E-2976.  Fury body numbers in '58 are LP92-XXXX or 292-XXXX, not LP32.  Also his body # of 2976 does not fit in the range of Evansville Fury body #s that range from 1540 for a VIN of LP2E23335 thru a body # of 2469 for a VIN of LP2E51104 and up to a body # of just only 3067 for a VIN of LP2E81732.  His motor number does not track either as he cites it as 1137929.  Maybe it is a casting #, but did tell him to look on the driver's side block, front,  below the head.  He did not cite prefixes.  The correct Fury poly numbers are FLP8-XXXXXX (ie 6digits, not 7).  Given his body number of LP32 and the 4 digits being entirely out of wack of the sequence of Evansville VINs and Body #s for Fury's, I think he has a nice '58 Belvedere with a standard 2bbl 318 that was routinely mated to a PowerFlite transmission, unless you upgraded to the optional TorqueFlite that was possible with a 2bbl 318.  PowerFlite's were not "standard" to 4bbl 318s, and definitely not offered on '57 or '58 Fury's.  I think this poor seller bought a pig in a poke (tho a nice one), and trying to sell it to another poor buyer.  Of course, his eyeglass prescription may be wearing thin, and he misread all those #s, but given all the info so far, I'll let you decide on authenticity.  I have decided and I think you know how I see it.

It's definitely not a Fury.  I'm not sure how it got the Fury interior, but the rest of the car is not a Fury.

Ron Swartley pointed out all the inconsistencies.  I don't believe it to be a Fury either.  I have emailed the seller for his motor and body number.  See what he has to say if anything.
