    Picked up a sister to my ratty 65 sport fury today. Needless to say the new one is in much better shape aside from a few dents. And the kicker? The red one needs a rear window and the blue one needs a windshield haha!!

    The license plate says the car was registered here in California in very late 1972 or early 1973. FYI.

    Yup that's what the guy I bought it from said it came from California back in the day a college kid had bought it. And then the guy I bought it from purchased it from him in the late 80s and drove it back to MN. I should post up the fender tag I believe it has an early build date. Pretty basic car though.

    Sorry I had the pic of the fender tag but it's upside down... Can get a clearer one when I get home.

    Got a little bit done on the ratty sport fury this weekend. Got the two spots in the floor fixed for now. Replaced a headlight switch so I've got operating lights now. Found a windshield that I'm gonna install this week. Pulled the gas tank for inspection. And even though it's dented up it's very clean inside. Gonna replace all rubber gas lines in-between the tank-engine-filler neck. I've got a load of parts coming that I'm gonna install next weekend. Gonna be BIG next weekend! 7 weeks until mopars in the park. It's looking good!

    Spent some money this week. Picked up and intake/carb/air cleaner. As well as throttle cable, kickdown cable. And a new shifter that will work much better than my cobbled factory one. Also on the list to go in this week are the gas tank. New rear shackles. Shocks. Guages. More to come!

    Finally got a new windshield for the sport fury. Also going to be swapping in my manual steering box this weekend, because who need power steering! For being a relatively stock 73 440 she's actually pretty peppy!! Gonna make the mopars in the park show for sure! More to come of course and more pics!

    Thanks for the update. What's the back story on the 440 and how did you manage to shoehorn it in?

    bought it from a guy not too far from me who pulled it from a 73 imperial. Car came from California. All I know is he said it ran great and for $400 engine and tranny I figured I couldn't go wrong! With some help from Schumacher's engine swaps the 440 went right in!

    also learned something new today. the manual gear box is actually shorter than the power steering unit. therefore the shaft that goes into the gear box is longer on the manual one. looks like im gonna lengthen the one i have to nake it work and also installing a new rag joint coupler. just a minor setback.

    Here's a pic of the shaft I need to lengthen. Then the gearbox and the distance I'm short.

    Got an x heavy piece of pipe for my sleeve. Gonna fit it in today. Tack it up and I'll bring it to work tomorrow to Tig well it. The factory dust boot will not work with this, so I'll have to figure something else out.

    You're skipping all the fun of finding the correct steering column! Only took me about ten years to get mine, but I didn't look very hard. Hope it works out for you without any hassles.
