    I would like to know what was its original color ( interior and body paint ). any idea how ?
    The reason why I'm asking is that I think it's been repainted . I found 3 different colors while sanding the body. Orange, Green and gray .

    I want to find out how many fury convertible were made in 1968, since it's odd ball, should n't be many. My friend says that In U.S., customer could pick any combination back then. If it's true, is that mean that it could have slant 6 up to 2-4bbl HEMI ??? It's hard to believe.

    The fender tag will show the original pain't code . this tag is attached to the left inner fender between the starters relay and master cylinder.
    If you can post a picture of it we can answer your paint inquiry.

    The Hemi engine was never offered in the C body line.
    The slant six was available in the lower trim levels. Not offered in the sport fury.
    Hope this helps.

    No Hemi was available in a Fury.

    Others with better information may correct me here (my expertise lies primarily with 65 and 66 C body cars), but an automatic trans was always optional since the default trans was always a 3 speed column shift manual.

    Slant 6 and 318 engines were available on regular Fury with the base trans being a 3 speed manual (not sure if a 4 speed was available for those engines in a C body), and 383/440 optional in two or three versions (single or dual exhaust, 2 or four barrel carb option on 383) with optional automatic or 4 speed trans.

    I am not sure, but I believe Sport Fury only came with 383 or 440, with 3 speed manual as the base transmission, and 4 speed or automatics were an option.

    Forgot to mention that the Fender Tag will have the colour and interior codes on it as well as well as other pertinent info. Post a picture and people here can decode it for you.

    I don't have access to info right now but I believe the 318 was the base motor in the Sport Fury, with 383-2, 383-4 & 440 as optional. 3 speed manuals available in 318 & 383-2 only, 4 speed in 383-4 & 440, Automatic in all.

    Does anyone have Factory Assembly Manual for 1968 sport fury ? I need a copy to restore my car, Please do not tell me that " just put back together the reverse way you took a parts " I'm not that smart, also at this point ,I have no idea what's missing.

    I've heard the term but have never seen a factory assembly manual. Seems to me I read somewhere that was a GM term.

    Congratulations on your purchase. Looking forward to seeing your progress. Please keep us all updated. Unfortunately I have no parts for you though. If the car is a real 4 speed Sport Fury, you're talking very rare. Especially if it already has a history in Japan. The Sport Fury was higher up in model line and pricing than the Fury III. A Sport Fury came in a 2 door Hardtop, Fast-top or Convertible. 318 small block was the standard engine in one. The grille was different than previous years, it also got a full length side stripe on both sides.

    Get a Parts Catalogue. Very helpful

    And
    There is no real "assembly" guide.
    Next best thing is the factory blueprints.
    Still no text,but a pictoral of parts and part numbers.
    Yet very helpful..especially if you took everything apart years ago and trying to figure out HTF to put it back together..
