General Tech- - BRAKES / 1960 Fury Brakes
« on: October 01, 2008, 05:25:00 PM »
I knew that should have checked back here sooner! My son found a place in Chattanooga that relined the old shoes. I had wondered about swapping later model drum  setup.  I have a 68 Coronet that sometime down the road will get front discs.

I too am interested in the details of this swap. Would it work to swap all pieces of a 78 Plymouth Sport Suburban Wagon onto the front of my 1960 Fury? Anyone tried this before?

I tried the link that MoparMatt posted emailed them asking about the front shoes. I got a email the next day from them wanting to know the Vin of the car so as to get the right shoes on Wednesday, sent that same day but haven't heard back yet.

Does anyone know of a source for Brake Shoes for a 1960 Plymouth Fury? Polaraco already suggested aajbrakes for a front disc conversion but that is just a bit pricey for our current budget. Are there any other options for brakes on this old Fury?

We decided to do a basic brake job on the Fury (new shoes & turn drums).  We got a shock when trying to buy shoes, my son works at the "flaps" and told me they couldn't get them.
I orginally thought well there just not on the computer so I find them on the web.  Sure enough NAPA listed them so sent off an order, two days later I get an email parts not availble. Back to the web, no, nope, no, etc.  Finally found a place that said they had them believe it or not just 40 miles from my home.  Thought I would include a link and ask if anyone here had dealt with this place before.

Well it took about a month of talking and walking away and talking some more but we drove it home today.  I actually drove it home (about five miles or so from "her" old home).  Power steering, power brakes, push button shifting, wide as the road and tailfins. It doesn't get much better than that and that old car smell (to paraphase Roland "that about the best smell in the world except maybe ......).  I am a bit concerned about the brakes, they work fine for 1960 brakes but aren't they a single master cylinder system? I do have a 1978 Fury wagon stashed "back in the hollow" .  How much of the later brake system can be adapted to the 60? Also the rear axle system, don't the 60s have those tapered rear hubs that will expand ones use of "salty" language?

Steve, it is a Fury interior intact,just a bit worn, all stainless there, has a crack in the winsheild in the upper left corner, no visible major rust, running drivable been in a carport until just recently.  I am no expert but I believe it would easily be a high 4.

Dave my son had a 76 Nova he drove thru High School it suffered a front end damage from wet roads and following too close at a redlight  all usable parts were salvaged. Then he bought a 86 Cutlass V6 that he added an edelbrock intake and 600 holley and Dual exhaust and of course the requesite "sound system". Then he got "Honda Fever" with a 93 Civic Hatchback. Then came the 50 Chevy I spoke of earlier that been a two year project.

Well actually He has been driving for about ten years so he has learned ( the hard way on a few things) about driving.  I told him to use "training cars to start with" I think "Chevys" is what they call them  .  Actually he still has one a 1950 Styleline Special with a 1959 235 six and T5 transmission about 75% finished. After I got hurt at work he took my F100 since I couldn't  drive anyway.  I stay after him all the time about taking care of my truck.  But I know about the safety issues nowadays, thinking back on my younger days .

Hey thanks for the Fast Reply,  My computer crashed before I finished the most important part the owner wants 2000 for it ( I was expecting to hear a higher number myself) I'll get some pics up as soon as I get my son to upload them from his phone.  I agree about the four doors  always preferred them "back in the day"  the extra stiff B pillar made them seem a bit steadier  on them midnight runs down the dirt roads.  You younger guys probably don't know what I am talking about but I am sure the older guys do.

Looked over the site and did not see a specific location for this question. I have been a Mopar  fan  since the mid sixties owned a few, 1956 Dodge with a red ram engine , a 1965 Fury III SW, 1970 Duster 340, 1971 Charger, 1968 Barracuda, 1968 Coronet, 1969 Fury III Conv. and a 1978 Plymouth Fury SW.  Still have the Coronet and the 78 parked out back in
the "hollow".  I thought I had bought  my  last Mopar but Today my son comes home and wants me to go with him to look at some cars. I was not to interested until he mentioned a 1960 Fury, suddenly visions of Tail Fins  filled my head.  I decided to go have a looksee just in case. As we pulled up a long drive there parked to the side she sat Light Blue and White decent paint , good stainless, an intact interior and no visible damage. The owner walked down to where she was parked  (at least he didn't look like Roland LeBay)an cranked her right up. Now before I say too much she has the 318 poly motor, and four doors
