1964 Plymouth Super Stock Start Up
In the mid 60's the performance wars were being fought 1/4 of a mile at a
time. Yes NASCAR was on the rise but it was at the local drag strips and
the NHRA circus that most affected the win on Sunday and sell on Monday
War. All the manufacturers were more than willing to provide any one that
could buy it, a factory built race car all set up for the 1/4 mile or the
stop light drags. Ford had Galaxies with 427's as did Chevrolet, Chrysler
had a better line up with the Dodge and the Plymouth cars that were a
little lighter and easier to order the super stock race ready cars. The
Hemi made more horsepower but the Max Wedge
426 came on Harder at the low end, was much more affordable and could be
punched out to 440 for the street wars. The light weight cars were reserved
for the factory teams or special friends that would race them on their own
nickel. Chrysler was also more successful in selling the light weight
parts to those who wanted to convert their street cars.
Those of you that follow my Google blog Americas Road Test Video blog know
that I have written a few stories about drag racing on the streets for
money, Pinks or just fun. The 1/4 mile influenced my best friend Doug's dad
in 1963 2h3 he ordered a new family car. A 4 door Pontiac Catalina with
beach seat, 421 tri power V8, 411 gears, a posi and a 4 speed manual
transmission. Mama was not so happy with the new grocery getter when she
she had to slide the seat all the way back to get the shift lever into
reverse and could barely reach the clutch or push it down.
1964 Plymouth Sport Fury # 5838 For Sale at Gateway Classic Cars in St. Louis
For sale is a 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury that will immediately turn you into
a nostalgic Mopar fan! This car screams of 1960s muscle car power and as
you stand next to the car you feel the presence of a time machine. A
lower-body restyle followed for the 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury, along with a
more conventional dash, and, for hard tops, a distinctive new roofline with
vee'd rear pillars and "bubble" backlight. The big mechanical news was a
first-time four-on-the-floor option, available with any V-8. Popular
Mechanics also noted that a 2.5-inch wider rear track "makes for less roll
and better handling when taking the curves on a rough road." Testifying to
the inherent goodness of its 1964s, Plymouth swept that year's Daytona 500
1-2-3, helped by a Hemi V-8 newly revived for competition only. Under the
hood of this Sport Fury you will find a stout 440 wedge big block engine
and a manual 4-spd (A833) transmission. The 440 engine has "Max Wedge" Exhaust manifolds that are actual, period
correct and they look like they mean business! The rear end is comprised of
an 8 3/4 with 3.23 posi gears. The exterior of the car is bright Rubie Red
with fresh chrome. The interior looks wonderful in black vinyl. The
interior is all new from Legendary Interiors. The car was restored in 2003
and was taken all the way down to fresh metal. Since then the Mopar has
been cared for under the roof of a garage. The steering wheel was restored,
windshield replaced, and new Good Year Eagle GT II tires were added. This
is a car that will get you to where you need to go in a timely, fashionable
style and a lot of people will see you coming! To view the Plymouth in
greater detail, including an HD video, please visit

1968 Plymouth Sport Fury 383 V8 Four Speed Convertible Rare Muscle Car
I thought you might like a look at this rare and very original, 1968
Plymouth Sport Fury convertible. It's powered by the high performance 383
V8 4 BBL, backed by the four-speed manual trans. That engine and trans
combo makes this car very rare. As you can see, it has been left almost
entirely original. I always like finding a nice survivor like this. It
really is my favorite kind of car to check out. I hope you find it
interesting as well...thank you for watching!
