Steel Reserve sounds like a good investment at this point! - you sure
get into some mega-projects Steve, but this one may be worth it. 
67/68 and 70/71 are the best of the C body Furys imho.  That will
be one unique drop top... so, was a 4 spd even available in 70/71
Fury?  I'd think in a Sport Fury anyhow....

Hell, if the scrap guy shows up and get's this old frame out of my way tomorrow, the firewall will be painted, the frame will be back in, and she'll be back on the ground again by Sunday afternoon.  Talkin about flyin'!
 
I just finished making all the pieces  to repair the perches and new body shims.  I have about 30 minutes with the welder and under she'll go.  But I think I'll finish the frame with the new steering box and weld on the Pivot point for the clutch while I wait for the paint to dry.
 
My buddy Pete is coming monday evening to help me stuff the motor back in.  I am hoping to have it running again in 2 weeks.  Then it's outa here and a big clean up

Busy Boy today.
 
I still have to drop the front and take out a layer of shims to get the steering box lined up.  Other than that, I'll be putting the engine and trans back in Monday.  Tomorrow I will be finishing up the frame bolts and connecting the front brakes.
 

 

 
Sorry for the blur

you are saying that the quarter panels on a 67 are the same as 68 I am talking around the rear wheel opening, if that is true they are not the same and to prove it try putting a 68 fender skirt on a 67 the 68 has a body line that the 67 does not ( I know I tried it and had to have the body line taken out of the 68 to match the 67 ) we are talking about a fury 2 door right.

That's a Dodge Phoenix from Austrailia.
RHD and amber turn signals.
The cars were actually pre-built in Windsor Ontario plant ( the same line as the Fury's)  and exported to Austrailia for final assembly

I was wondering if anybody would notice what I slipped in.
