Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Jacques on October 05, 2007, 05:24:21 AM
We bought this car during the summer, with the idea of possibly driving it during my holiday. To my dismay, I discovered that bureaucracy is not something exclusive in Holland but also exists in the USA, the morons at the BMV wouldnt give me temporary tags for te car (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif) but we shipped it anyway (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)
 
Its not really my kind of car (no power windows, not enough doors, pretty small) but its quite OK still, its a full size mopar after all (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif)
 
Besides, it has some little spots, and the interior needs some attention. Its a 383 4 barrel car. After the purchase, I had it towed to a mechanic my friend in Ohio recommended, and some necessary work to make it road-ready was already done. New windshield, gas tank cleaned and redcoated, new fuel lines, idler arm replaced, one tyre replaced, etc. I've seen the car myself during my holiday, and everything seemed to work, except the AC.
 
Lets hope that it survived the journey pretty well.... first project will be to make it street legal, so have to make it ready for road admission test. If we decide its a keeper, it'll get a propane conversion as well.
 
A few pics from the car:

Man that fury is Bad (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley35.gif)!, Best of luck to you, and what rear is in it?

Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: James Brown Jr, on October 05, 2007, 03:06:54 PM
speaking of rear??
how do you figure that out without taking stuff apart.??
and i almost bought a SF off ebay just like it.
Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Mike on October 05, 2007, 03:12:13 PM
The best way to do that is to either find the build sheet which may
still be under either the front or back seat. The next step would be to
decode the VIN i forget if it would be listed there or not, and finally
do a burn out and see which wheel smoke comes from.

Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: James Brown Jr, on October 05, 2007, 03:14:27 PM
lol the vin says nothing about it. tried the fender tag, nothing.
the car won't do a burn out. lol. and i found the build sheet but it just crumbled in my hands as i pulled it out. gees i'd love a amber sherwood green sport fury lol

Sjak I remember that car! Good score!
IIRC,the previous owner was a member of another forum and the car was driven regularly.
Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Johnny D. on October 05, 2007, 08:17:56 PM

There are occasionaly codes on the rear its self. But if you go under and look at what kinda carrier you have, it should give you a better Idea... if all round lookin with no bolts thats 8 3/4, and I'd bet the gears are highway tall... prolly 2.76. The burnout is hard to do with them tall gears, and lo po, but basically all it say is wether you got the sure grip or the peg leg.

Sjack, if you do the propane conversion, Take pics of how that all comes together, I'd be interested to say the least.

The car has a 383 and a 2.73 rear end. It hasnt been driven for a year or so. The previous owner had some registration issues, but he's been very honest regarding the condition of the car.

With some help, I have arranged temporary tags to drive it from the harbour to my shop. Lets see if it makes it

Post by: Jacques on October 07, 2007, 11:24:24 PM
At this time, there are no plans for the Fury, not even sure if its a keeper. I've not driven it yet, and the only fullsize Mopars I drove were Chryslers and Imperials, so not sure what to expect from the cheap brand in ride quality and such.
 
Even if I dont sell it right away, the Imperial is and will always be my #1 car and as such, it'll suck up most of my money. So the fury will be SRPOAB (*). It needs a lot of small work on int, like seat covers redone, some rust removal, and probably lots of regular maintenance.

Looks like Leaburn started a new trend here. Clever non the less, as
far as "Cheap brand goes"  from what I've riden in the ride
quality should be just fine. Comparing a Plymouth to a Imperial is like
Apples to Oranges or somthing like that , I still think it is a cool
car to get around in.

Post by: Jacques on October 08, 2007, 07:03:40 AM
[/QUOTE] I will make a small feature on the propane installation in the Brakmobile topic, with pictures of all relevant components and a short explanation of how it works.
 
If the Fury is getting a conversion, it will be next year or so. If we keep it, first priority is to make it road legal, then we'll see what to do next.

All C's have a nice ride,IMHO.
The Imperial does have its own quality of ride,however.
I noticed a difference in Rusty's '68 Imp compared to my New Yorker
Yet,my '68 Plymouth VIP rode equally as well as the New Yorker.
The SF should feel lighter with more road feel.Yet should still have a smoootthh soft ride.

Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Jacques on October 09, 2007, 02:40:13 AM
Well, its just that my Imperial drives so much better than my old Newport. Really didnt expect that it would be such a big difference in comfort, precision and handling, the Imp is superior in all three. But the SF is much lighter so it might corner better. We'll see next week (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif)

Imperials are the creme de la creme, and should ride the best above all
other cars Chrysler made. The SF will be a nice tooling around car when
the Imp runs lows on propane.

Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Jacques on October 30, 2007, 10:19:14 AM
Even if I'd wanted to drive fast, I coulnt, the car is way slower than the Imperial, despite weighing some 1600lbs less.

At first, I thought the fuel gage was defective, since it seemd stuck on E. I topped it off with 80.56 liters (22 gallons) @ euro 1.547 = euro 124.26 (approx US$ 180).

But otherwise, the car drove pretty well, front suspension and steering were tight, engine ran very smooth (although no power at all), and all of the electric stuff seemed to work. So all in all, it was a good purchase, especially considering what it cost me so far.

Post by: Steve on October 30, 2007, 11:40:50 AM
By Now, Martin is realizing the ol' 71F3 is pretty stingy on gas.  But I experienced what you are talking about too.  The car wasn't a rocket, but it never seemed to run out of steam either.  Probably the gearing.
 
I had seen as high as 18 around town on that car. . . .

I played a bit with the Fury on the yard today. It seemed to have better throttle response than tuesday. And I played a bit with it, going sideways etc. The very light weight of the car makes it better handling than the Imp (much less understeer).

Both cars together:

Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Jacques on November 03, 2007, 02:46:53 PM

Also, I'm starting to make a list of the things that need to be changed in order to get tags here. A few minor stuff, like EU-approved reflectors and headlight lenses, getting the horn to work, rewiring the turnsignal (it doesnt work while braking) etc. And the brakes drag a little, probably the master cilinder.

Unlike the Brakmobile, I'm not going to throw a lot of $$$ in upgrades on this car. Its going to be a more or less stock vehicle. So its going to be on some kind of a budget (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Dont get me wrong, I will spend the money it needs, just no performance upgrades. I hate lousy repairs with cheap low-quality parts.

Today, I toyed a bit with it on the yard, its very eager to smoke a tire or do a donut, and now that I'm getting a little used to the car, I discover its got really very tight handling. So the claim of previous owners that most of the front end was rebuilt appears to be true (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif)

[/QUOTE]I'm going to keep it as simple as possible. Luckily, there's not much electrical stuff on it anyway, its quite a low buck car compared to the imp. I think I'll just throw the wiring in de bin and rewire it from scratch, often easier and quicker than trying to figure out what some enlightened previous owner did to it.

OK, after a few months of illness, I'm getting back to my cars.

I bought new shocks, calipers, booster+master cilinder, brake lines, completely new rear brakes (except the drums themselves).

Also bought new wheel bearings for both the Imperial and the Fury. Funny to see how tiny the fury bearings look compared to the Imperial's.

Today, I removed the old calipers, and it was a wise decision to replace them altogether, they looked worn, and the rubber seals were completely hardened out.

I also had a nasty fight trying to remove the front shock (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley35.gif) Next try tomorrow, but with power tools (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley15.gif)

Working away on the car is good therapy.

OK now the Imperial is gone, I can now focus on the lesser Mopar to get it on the road.

The leaf springs and rear xle will be removed + cleaned up, and chances are that a rear disc setup will be installed.

The car is about as dusty as this topic was getting:

Man, they rusted a lot from here to there.  There should also have been two header pipes - did you get both? 
Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Jacques on September 15, 2009, 06:52:40 AM
Yeah got both pipes, I was just too lazy to aling all parts for the pic LOL
 
They seem rusty on the pics, but actually the manifolds look really great!

What - you guys gettin laid off over there too? 

Title: 71 sport fury
Post by: Jacques on December 17, 2009, 11:25:56 AM

Yes of course. But if they really want to get rid of me, they owe me a substantial "exit compen$ation". But they are also trying to assign me to another project within the company, it's currently depending a bit on budget considerations. What I actually hope for is finding a job outside of the company and take the exit payment (almost a year's salary). But with this christmas thingy going on, its not a great time for applying anywhere, as everywhere all people with decision authority are on holiday.

But enough on those boring details. Since the last update I accumulated yet more parts, so the car is really ready for a trip to the east when I get it done (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

A friend is helping me out on the leaf springs, restoring them, replacing the bushings with Polyurethane pieces, and adding an extra leaf. Also found PU leaf isolators, nice I can replace those dryed out rubbers as well.

Unfortunately, the leaf spring hangers were damaged, need to think of a solution to that.

Steve, I havent seen it in a while. Been very busy myself the past few months. Besides the car-stuff, been doing a lot of trade besides my daytime job, and some travelling to Hungary, Finland, bought another car, and going to make a roadtrip to Romania soon.

Well, not much progress lately over here... in June, I made a roadtrip through Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Czechia and Germany with an 85 Benz I bought for this purpose. Last week, I made a small trip to Serbia and Romania.
 
And this weekend, I'm going to France. If I dont go to Danmark next weekend, I'll do some stuff on the fury again :)

Not on the pics: new bearings + seals installed on the rear axle, and new joints for the driveshaft.

Nice work!! - we haven't heard from ya for a while!  so are you
going to keep on with your '71 Sport Fury coupe? I don't think you'll
regret it, as more time goes by, the 70/71 Sport Fury GT is already
considered the most desirable of any C Body. You could make one easy:
440 6  Pack!



Don't know if you've seen under Cars Wanted "Sapphire" our new '70 F3.

Post by: Jacques on March 27, 2011, 10:21:55 AM

No, this is all "pre-delivery" work (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Things got a bit slow as I had an ongoing infection to my eyes for some time, preventing me from spending much time at the pooter, or in the garage as well... but meanwhile, the car is not far from going to a very eager new owner.

He visited me last Saturday. I shared the progress with him, and the good news on the worn out lower control arm bushings and ball joint dust-boots. On the other hand, he gets a lot of new stuff installed on the car for basically the cost of the parts (rear springs + bushings, rear axle bearings + seals, completely new brake system incl. lines, etc), so basically its still not very a bad deal for him I guess.

Title: 71 sport fury
