1967 Plymouth Fury wagon with Crossram Sonoramic Longram induction on a 440 ci engine. Wild

Here is one of my first overall build up projects, Every nut and bolt came out of this car over a 5yr period. I figured that since I was building a weird car (at that time in 1994 no one was in to station wagons except me I think) That I should have a wild and weird engine compartment, What you see is a factory Chrysler intake with a few modern tweaks and upgrades , such as billet throttle linkage, carbon fiber air cleaner tops, Indy car suspension mount for an engine torque rod. It was a great and fun car that won many awards and was featured in several national magazines, it was even on the cover of Mopar Collectors Guide! looking back now it seems funny, I sold a 1972 340 Challenger Rallye car to build the wagon , That E body is now worth a whole bunch more money than when I sold it. Even so, if I had it all to do over again I wouldn't have changed a thing, I had so much fun with the big wagon that it wouldnt have compared with just a "plain" O'l E body

440 Camshaft drive FAIL!!!
So our rebuilt 440 with only 300 miles (at most) on it, developed a problem when stopping at a traffic light, it wouldn't idle. It had lost 20 deg. of ignition timing, so we twisted the distributor, and it ran well again. Then a short time later it did the same thing again, another 20 deg. of timing lost. We couldn't twist the distributor far enough, so had to pull and adjust the drive gear, to get it firing at the right time, but this time it wouldn't run quite right, and lost top end power. We tried everything a group of us could think of, but in the end pulled off the timing cover, to discover that the single bolt drive with 1 locating pin had suffered a major failure! We hope no valves are bent, but are still determining that, 2 chrome moly pushrods are bent, the timing sprocket is trashed, and we are NOT Amused!!! These were all brand new name brand parts, so why did they fail??? We will be going with a 3 bolt camshaft sprocket retainer this time!

This is me racing my 58 Plymouth Belvedere at Firebird Raceway in Emmett Idaho at a race called the Halloween Classic. I had to back off a tab because I was far enough ahead. If not I would have broken out.
