    This is Maggie's car after all and I love her enthusiasm and wanting to work on her own car.
    She swapped out her own tires last night...
    I love her enthusiasm and wanting to work on her own car.
    It reminded her of her high school days hanging out at a Fina gas station busting tires way back when....

    The car is in such great shape Maggie has set some ground rules and warned me not to overstep her boundaries..it is her car!!
    First couple rules were keep the original hubcaps and she wanted whitewall tires.
    DONE! ...But with a twist!
    Frankie got 22570R15 Toyo tires but I put them on 15X7 Diplomat/5Th Ave plain Jane steel wheels.
    Much better compared to the old and puny 21570R15 on the original skinny 15x5.5 rims.
    Visually,the new combo had a nice squared off look that also fills out the wheelwells.
    Ride and handling is improved with a bigger footprint and also the speedo will read correctly.
    At 27.4" diameter,the new tires are bang on to the factory bias ply 27.36 OD 775-15 tires.

    Shame about the old tires. Tons of tread,hardly any miles on them but bad cracked form years of sitting.
    They were too small for my liking anyways.

    Crazy Don and I replaced the old wheel bearing up front.
    They were worn,scored and the grease was dried up something awful.

    Dunno why but the Fury left the factory without a front sway bar.
    To improve handling I scored this sway bar at a yard today from a 69 New Yorker.
    Being a 440 car this is the big 7/8 bar.
    That should help firm up the cornering of Maggie's car...

    The yard we went today had a lot of old vehicles.
    I also scored the very hard to find 1 year only washer jug.
    Also found a nice electronic ignition distributor ( I am getting rid of the points system). Plus a gas cap which was missing on Maggie's car.
    Nick came down and Crazy Don tagged along to scour the yard.
    Nick scored some really nice goodies.
    Shown here Don on the left Nick to the right with Maggie the great dane photo bombing while I manned the BBQ after the yard tour, Lol!

    Thanks for the great day yesterday Lea, Maggie and Don.

    I enjoyed getting to see Maggie the Windsor Built Fury.

    As everyone knows I love Fury's!

    Having a lady who enjoys cars as muck as you do is a HUGE bonus Congradulations on her and the Plymouth.

    Is this how the Windsor built fender tags look? There's no bend near the left side screw in the fender tag and there are no inspection stamps anywhere on it. The tag looks good to me - I'm just wondering if this is how this plant normally installed their fender tags on the cars?

    Nick and I compared notes and we agree that the Windsor fender tags are vague at best with no bends or other tags added. Typically an inspection mark would be on the right side of the rad core support far from the tag IIRC.

    It is quite extraordinary seeing a woman with an air gun in hand never mind having the know how to use it. Although my better half would never pick up a wrench I still consider myself lucky that she tolerates my hobby.

    The rear window and all related trim was pulled to do rust repair and prep roof for new vinyl top.

    I smoothed out the seams where the quarter panel meets the roof. This will be less noticable with the vinyl top is installed
