    A few more pictures of the upgrade...note the lead deposits in the lifter valley. They show up like gray/white paint pigment. Relic of high test ethyl usage.

    Yes it is a 4 speed from the factory...1 of 75 in '68. Getting ready to put the Passon Performance overdrive gearset in the transmission.

    Well cool my friend, we have a '68 440 Fury conv over here, I couldn't believe it when I saw yours had a 4 speed in it,.... LOL, ,I took your photos off here up to my work to show my mate who I share the car with,
    I said "check this bad bitch out mate" he was as impressed as me. Interior looks stunning from the pics. We have been trying to find both side drop glass' for years for ours, its the main thing we are missing after 5 years of collecting parts its coming together now.
    We found some in Germany for 400euros but we have to go and get it and its a bit sketchy at present now we are out of the EU.:D

    Nice to meet you! Sounds like a really cool car with the 440. Mine is a pretty good mover with the 4 speed, especially since the installation of the new cam. Post some pics of your car. Is it originally a 440 car?

    I look forward to seeing some pics. Body parts are tough to find for Fury's even in the US. It's gotta be really tough in the UK. Driveline has been easy to get parts for.
