1968 Plymouth Sport Fury Convertible

 

OK, so it was an impulse buy. As an engineer, I don't get the opportunity to be impulsive much, so I ran with it. Plus, a dark green '67 Sport Fury that my Dad bought new was the first Mopar I have any association with in my life, so I kind of had to have it... Wouldn't you?

Here's a few shots of how I found her at the swap meet at La Grave Field in Fort Worth, TX

 

And here she is a week later...

That's Dad, the guy who got me in to Mopars from the beginning. He had a 67 Sport Fury that he bought new... As a baby, I rode in my carrier strapped to the center console. Ah, the good old days before air bags!

 

The fender tag...

And VIN tag...
