Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / 58 Fury Heavy Duty Suspension
« on: January 12, 2009, 03:49:08 PM »
Does anyone know if all 58 Furys had heavy duty suspension as standard equipment?
 
I've heard that it included thicker torsion bars and an extra leaf in the rears...anything else?
 
Diameter on the heavy duty torsion bars vs. standard bars...Thanks, Bob
 
Heavy Duty Rear Leafs..how many vs. Standard Rear Leafs..how many?

General Mopar Discussions / Memory Lane Classics
« on: December 07, 2008, 11:47:25 AM »
Has anyone here had any recent experience with Memory Lane Classics in Chisholm, Minnesota? I see they build 57-58 Plymouths, Christine clones, Furys etc. Very expensive but when done, one gets a turn key car that is completly brand new and delivered to your door. Ten years of looking could be over if I want to spend the big bucks.

MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / Another FL topic for discussion
« on: November 17, 2008, 05:46:38 AM »
I've read some discussions here before about FL and taken the warnings to heart. However, I've also continued to visit over there and be careful about any posts/threads etc. I just have to share this with you guys though. There's a guy over there that's looking to trade his 57 Belv. so I e-mailed him. He got back to me promptly and wrote a nice e-mail describing his car, what he's done to it...All sounded well and normal. I replied and told him what I have to trade and if he wasn't interested that would be fine and almost expected....so I asked him if he'd be willing to sell his car if  that's case. After my e-mail to him with some attached photos of my 70 Fury & 70 Chevy P-Up (apparently he's into Chevys by his screename), he didn't reply....I gave him about 4-5 days and then e-mailed him again...I kept it short...two sentences...saying "I haven't heard back from you just wondering what you thought" etc. He then replied with a duplicate of his first e-mail. I e-mailed back thinking he made a mistake? I promptly got the same reply, a duplicate of his first e-mail. Then I got the message, so I gave up. Is being a buffoon an epidemic over there? Why must people be rude? I find it just the opposite over here and this experience made me appreciate you guys even moreso..Thanks again to all you Moparfin guys for always being so helpful and decent. Thank you, Bob furyfever2008-11-18 18:55:42

I actually can't recall any of our members living in the Chicago area...but if anyone does and would be willing to look at this car for me...it would save us a 10+ hour trip. I'm actually tempted to forgo viewing it in person it looks so good...(say it aint so) My wife wants to buy me this for my Birthday... Seriously...

General Mopar Discussions / Craigslist is flipper filled.
« on: November 13, 2008, 04:38:13 AM »
I found this 58 Fury on Craigslist last week......I e-mailed the seller the same day it was posted (no phone number) and missed out on it only because I wasn't close enough (Boston). It sold  for $4800.00 immediately. Guess what......a flipper got a hold of it. Now look what he's trying to get for it.

General Mopar Discussions / Gosh she looks so good in photos
« on: November 04, 2008, 05:02:19 AM »
Well, I see another car I wanted is now being flipped on e(vil)-bay. It's just amazing what justice photos do to an old tired car. It even looks better now that this classic car dealer has gotten a hold of it and posted his own enhanced photos. What a lesson to be learned....never, never, never buy a car on photos alone. You not only can't see or touch but you can't smell it either. This car has mold growing inside on the headliner because it was left out in the rain....The rear window leaks real bad. (Thanks for the heads up Steve) I e-mailed the dealer told him all...He hasn't replied back. Still a nice car...but needs a total dismantling and restoration. I could have had it for $5400.00. Let's see what it goes for.

General Mopar Discussions / Need help: Photobucket users
« on: November 02, 2008, 03:12:54 PM »
Does anybody here (that uses photobucket to post photos) notice that something has recently changed??....Now when I copy my selected photos to a new topic....my whole photobucket album is viewable...Can anybody help me figure out how to fix this? I obviously only want the selected photos to be accessible to the reader. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out my recent post: "WPChrysler museum in Auburn Hills, MI." When you select 1 photo you are able to go through my whole photobucket album. Something just changed because this didn't happen before.furyfever2008-11-02 20:18:04

Hi Guys, I may need my thinking checked here. Let me know if I'm off. It looks like this car was on its way to being restored and then sold to the present owner. Now the present owner wants to sell. He's e-mailed me undercarriage shots...looks rock solid...However he has not sent me any exterior lower panel shots. Not sure why yet...If I was restoring this car, I wouldn't be painting it like this, but it is what it is. Anyways, I'm trying to tell this guy that he does not have a #3 car here (he wants 15k for it)...It's more like a #4 and at least about 10k away from leaping to a # 2...so....going by CCMR it should be selling for ~7k or so..9k tops??...Agree or Disagree? (CCMR guide attached below).... Also...has anyone heard of a 313 ci? Excellent project for a sonoramic commando?  I thought SC was based on 383? Is this a typo? He did mention it's candian built.

I know where Stitch and Polaraco stand on 60 Plymies...Can you say coyote ugly?..., but how about the rest of you guys?....Is $5400.00 too much for this? It's a 20 footer...It needs quite a bit of work. I'm a bit worried about all the bubbles...I know whats going on under there....The stainless side trim is pretty dented up...dash is old lookin...engine compartment DIRTY DIRTY...I don't know...I can't wait to get myself into more work...

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / 69 Fury vs. 70 Fury
« on: October 10, 2008, 05:00:10 AM »
I have a 69 Fury III 2dr. hardtop, 318, auto, 85k miles, that rides like an absolute dream...like a new car. I also have a 70 Fury III 2 dr. hardtop, 318, auto, 95k miles, that rides like an absolute lumber wagon....like an old car. There are no noticeable differences underneath these cars. Did Chrysler cheapen up the 70's some how/way and this is just the way it is?
