Yes Mobby...I'll be getting the (original or reproduction) bumper wings. Not sure which ones I want yet. Edwin at MLC says the repros fit better as the originals had quality control issues from the factory...Have you ever seen how some of them look bent upwards more than usual?
 
Here's the short list:
 
1958 Plymouth Fury with matching numbers 350 Golden Commando
Buckskin Beige w/ gold trim (stock colors)
Come to life pkg. (motion sensor at driver door handle turns on lights, radio)
CD Player in glove box
Dual Power rear antennas
Rear fender skirts
Solex glass (factory tint)
150 MPH speedo
7 button search tune radio (factory option)
Power Windows
4 way power disc brakes
Power Steering
Stainless steel brakes lines, fuel line, dual exhaust system.
Posi-traction rear end
 
#1 glory goes to God because He has richly blessed us over the years...My wife and I have been continually working for 27 + years now...We've always been good savers. Other than buying our home we never got into debt. We married late in life so we had no children...so, it's time for a kickback I guess. I'll make sure there will be a kickback for her too. Uh Oh  <---Not really...My wife is fabulous. She actually gave me the push I needed to do this. I've been a head case though as I'm still going back and forth whether to go Christine or go factory with her. <---Had to use this.... Love the new emoticons...Thanks Steve!!

You are only here for a short time and you can't take all your hard earned cash with you when you leave this earth.
So you may as well enjoy it now while you still can.
Thumbs up to FuryFever for going for it!
What they have done so far has taken me 3 years.
 IMO,car would be nice restored  back to original--especially if the car is a legit 350 Golden Commando car .
A rare car to begin with and also not many left due to the rust issues they had from day one.

You can't see it without having the magnifier tool, but there's rust holes along the drip rail next to the rear window on driver side...probably on other side too? Plus...from what Edwin tells me, there's a large dent up at top center. It must be easier to weld up the 4 pillar splices after removing/replacing roof.

Lea...good point...I've seen the numbers on the motor. They match the VIN. MLC has requested a build card/translation of it from Chrysler Historical. Before dismantling, she looked like a Fury...but Belvederes Savoys and Plazas could be ordered with 350 GC's too...so Chrysler Historical will assure us what she was born as. Perhaps I should stop ...and let them be the judge of what color she will be.
 
If she's a real GC 350 Fury = Bucksin beige w/ Gold trim
If she's a GC 350 Belv = Christine or any factory color

I'm still going back and forth whether to go Christine or go factory with her.  
 
Here's my 2 cents: I would not want to see another Christine any more than I want to see another General Lee, but that's your call.  But as for going factory, the CD and the 4-wheel disks already put the car beyond that point.  So...go custom!  Make the car as you would want it.  After all, if you're thinking Christine you can't be opposed to custom.   
 
One thing finally - dump the skirts.  I never have liked them on cars with finder "lips."  Just my opinion, however.
 
As for what you're spending, see Malachi 3:10.  Whenever someone says to me, "You're a Minister!!  How can you own a car like that????" I always answer, "I tithe."
 
Blessings to you Brother!

Scott,
 
You make a lot of sense. You have given me a few things to think about here...about the "custom items" that I refuse to let go of...the 4 wheel disks, the CD and the come to life package too...maybe I need to forget them and go buckskin beige or keep em and finish it off with a custom paint job. I just think about resale value (some day) with the latter though....Hhhmmm....I understand your stance on the skirts...One day I love em and the next I say "man...that car looks fabulous without em". Do the skirts come off without any unsightly pins or tabs left behind?...because I do like both looks. And last but certainly not least...I never put this act of classic car gluttony together with how God blesses our socks off when we tithe! You are right...You can't outgive God!! Even more glory to Him!   
 
Thanks Scott for the advice and encouragement...bless you too brother..
 
Bob
