    Hey guys couple of questions for you guys about a 73 fury police car. I buy and sell alot of mopars, part them out if there to rough to fix, so I get calls from people often clearing off there property and what have you. That being said a guy called me the other day with a farm full of stuff, only Mopar is a u-code 73 fury ex police car. I didn't take any pics like a fool, but the car is beyond repair, but good for some parts. Complete car except carb and radiator, my question is what are some of the police specific stuff I should be looking for and value . If I get the car I will definitely be listing stuff on here. Thanks for any help guys.

    Dibs on the windshield washer reservoir if it’s in good shape/holds fluid.

    Before you go on to cutting it up, find out what City, State, or Federal Agency owned the car originally. I don't know what "Beyond Repair" means until I see the car. Posts some picks and info and you may end up selling the whole car.

    Certified speedometer, A/C cutoff switch (under dash to the right of steering column.) 73 Front disc brakes and spindles, bigger alternator and heavy gauge harness, extra dome light with switch, heavy duty seats with extra springs. Remote trunk release. Photo's if you can.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. The car is about 2 hours from my house, so it will be a while before I get back up there to try and make a deal, but if I get it I will definitely update the thread. He's going to have to cut down so trees to drag it out with a tractor. It's had the trunk open for many years, and sitting very close to the ground, and the area of the farm looks like it stays pretty wet. I'll definitely keep you guys informed, especially if I get it . Thanks

    Will also have u-code exhaust manifolds, HD rear springs and police torsion bars. Battery heat shield, HD brake drums on the rear with 8 3/4 rear axle that will usually be 3.23 ratio. Some were produced with sure grips. If it sat outside on the dirt, most likely the engine is stuck. Should be a forged steel crank motor that could be a good core.

    Heavy duty everything. Ma Mopar didn't fool around with police pursuit vehicles.

    If you can please get Pic of the fender tag. I'm sure the crew would love to see and decipher it!

    The TF should have a "Hi-Upshift" governor AND Low Gear Blockout. The instrument panel shift quadrant will be the same, but the shift level will not go past "D". So it acts normally otherwise.

    The blockout feature was for when a pursuit happens from a dead stop. Yank the shift lever to move forward, "all the way down", but it stops at "D" so the officer didn't hit "1" and forget to upshift manually.

    Chrysler built the best pursuit cars.

    I'd like to point out a few quick things....Just because its a U code cop car, doesn't mean it has everything everyone has stated, quite a few of the things people have listed were optional....

    Even on Pursuit packaged cars.

    Not to mention that the car could me a PL41, PM41, or PK41.....

    Pictures would greatly aid in identifying what it has...

    As it has been said, what you may consider too far gone, others may not, its pedigree may dictate its worthiness as a restoration candidate.
