    Here's a photo of a 1972 Fury 29 body style two-door hardtop found on the internet. The "C"-pillar, the rear window and the quarter panel are those from the four-door hardtop and are different from the sheetmetal in those areas used (only) on the 23 body style.

    Enough to piss everyone off and ruin Halloween. It's mostly gone now.

    Thanks. Cut it with a knife. Made one years ago for the trunk of my '62 New Yorker. My daughter sat in the trunk at a Trunk-or-Treat at the Sonic in Oildale (Bakersufeld) handy out the candy. It was a Friday night Halloween; lots of people came out!

    Yes, I've talked about it on a number of threads. It's a '73 X that I traded a 400 Mopar motor for in '06. Car sat in a field for years. Once I got the clear title on it - after a 90 day search - we gutted it, and yanked the useless 258 6 cylinder and the destroyed T-15 3 speed. We (my Son and I, it's his car) found and built an AMC 401 from a '77 Wagoneer. It's now a 407 with Isky cam, 9.5:1 Speed-Pro pistons, balanced rotating assembly, Edelbrock 750 cfm Carb and Performer Intake, Hedman Hedders running through Thrush pacs with cut-outs. Transmission is a T-10 4-speed from a '68 Javelin, with a Mopar A Body 8.75 rear using 3.23 sure grip. The electronics are from Petronics using an original Chevy distributor. (AMC used Chevy distributors and steering columns, Ford ignitions and starters, and from '72 and up, Chrysler automatic transmissions, although the starter is on the passenger side.

    I converted the original drum brakes to disks using parts from a '79 AMC Spirit, including adding the sway bar.

    Dash was custom made by my late Brother-in-law and the seats are out of an early 2000s Dakota.

    Wheels are 14x7 Indy slots with TA Radials all around.

    Gets 19 on the highway!!!

    Do you know the history of this car? It looks like one that was for sale a few years ago on a little used car lot in the small town of Richmond, IL. It had the concealed headlight grill, and the same poverty caps.

    No, I know nothing about this car, I just came across the pictures of it on the internet. Yes, it does have hidden headlights, as can be seen from the other pics of it in this ad.

    This is not only a beautiful car, it is also an example of a 1971 Fury produced late in the model year featuring the 1971 Chrysler New Yorker type door pull straps instead of the thicker, softer door pull straps with chromed end caps found on most 1971 Furys and Chrysler 300's.

    Beautiful, just beautiful.

    How is the handling of a C-Body in the snow?

    Winter tires are mandatory between Dec-Feb. Or M+S. I have got M+S tires on my Fury, tires with spikes on my daily drivers.

    I am driving Fury only in "dry" snow and it's handling just fine.
