Separate names with a comma.
What year was this? My Fury was in a Mopar collection out in Utah.
I think 2010? Hard to pinpoint.
Presume the engine was original to the car?
What are some of the upgrades that you had done?
How much of the 440 did you build yourself?
Why did the dash have to come apart? I love the pic of the jig set-up for the pedals. Why wouldn't anything from '69-'73 work?
I'm sure that you have told us in the past, but I'm going to be the guy who asks the sad question.
Why did you end up selling the car?
To R&R the pedals.
Thanks. Couldn't have been done properly without mocking up the firewall on the bench.
Everything was completely new for 74. Other than the engine, tranny, and rear, nothing carried over. The 74+ was not a redesigned Fusie.
It kicked the ever loving shit out of me. Lol.
No, I wanted a Salon and this untouched, unmolested, little old lady low mileage "Survivor" Salon lookalike popped up on ebay, and I only have room for ONE toy.
How long did you own it after the conversion? How did it drive, were you satisfied with the result?
I think I would've lost my mind in that mass of wires.
You'd think but the FSM makes things a lot easier than they appear .
I pulled the stock block and I put in a Winnie 440.
I blew that up so I built the old stock block using 100% new parts right down to the ARP. bolts. I tried to match the '69 440 HP specs as closely as possible.
Agreed, but that is a lot to sit down and take in.
While the conversion was complete, when I sold it it still had a couple of gremlins under the dash and needed new front seat upholstery from welding sparks. My stupid.
It dove like a stock 1976 Chrysler NYB. Faults and all.
Satisfaction? OMFG..... Driving a Mopar 4 spd again? I loved it. Came out perfectly.
I actual did. Midway through the dash I was pretty close to selling it to someone who wanted the car for parts.
Did you at least re-coup your original $3k investment?
Also meticulously tagging every wire and connector. Thank gawd I find wiring diagrams intriguing to work with.
All but $500.
I sold the car for $6,000.00, easily 1/2 what I had into it but recouping my money was never thought about for one second.
That's too bad. Like I've been telling my wife with my 'vert, it's the journey not the payout. But then again it will also be my heir's problem.
