    The 67 Fury II wagon made its "debut", and went to it's very 1st ever show yesterday. It was the only station wagon there. This has been an amazing experience because the car would only be driven around town, then sat in the garage and never on the road again since the start of the interior project 4 years ago. The engine was not detailed so the hood was left down. "The Bear", (the purple 4-door sedan) was also in attendance at the show. Back to the wagon, the final touches were literally just finished the night before the show I'm talking steering column, steering wheel, Fury III fender badges, and a bath. The original interior used to be gray and is now copper, and is 4 years "in the making". As far as the outside, NOS Fury III taillights were added, NOS rear bumper was added, a power tailgate window was added, Fury III wheel lip moldings were added, and Fury III window trim was added. The car still has it's original 318 2bbl for now with a crappy Strasbourg carburetor. (Don't know how to spell Strasbourg, assuming it's right, someone correct me.) The car is currently a survivor with 90% original paint, just the left front fender was redone. Originally from Tennessee. Bought by my stepfather in 2003 from North Carolina. The plan is to put a 440 in with maybe a TTI kit in the next couple years. berlin show 1.jpg berlin show 2.jpg berlin show 3.jpg berlin show 4.jpg

    If you care -- since you are planning on getting rid of it -- they were " Stromberg " carburetors -- and they were not a strong carburetor company when they existed!!!

    Wagons are cool -- and "hot" now -- more than ever before.... Yours looks nice -- enjoy driving it now -- and worry about changes later.....

    Great job getting it back on the road where it belongs. Looks great.

    The only thing Stromberg did right was the original "Old 97"...

    Beautiful wagon, I love the rolling stock! What size Magnums and tires are you running?

    Magnum Rims- Car still has manual drum brakes. Plan on converting to disc someday. So the Magnum's right now SHOULD be 14"

    Tires- Fronts are P225/75R15. Rears are P275/60R15.

    Not that it matters but I found this car for it's current owner (a friend of mine since high school) on the internet way back in 2003. He took the train down to NC and drove the car home with, as I recall, minimal trouble.

    This wagon is a 67 Fury II wagon. Fury II wagons did not come with tail lamps or a finish panel on the tailgate. That was all changed using the existing tailgate by SportFury70's stepdad.

    If you have them, post some interior photos showing that the interior now has 67 Sport Fury buckets and upholstery. The rear seat upholstery had to be modified and narrowed to fit the station wagon style rear seat.

    Not sure. Sorry about that. As far as the tire sizes, the fronts are P225/75R15. Rears are P275/60R15. They are the same as the purple sedan
