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

Lot S93 1963 Plymouth Max Wedge
The 1963 426 Max Wedge-powered Plymouth was an uncompromising factory racer
that, in the words of the company's sales brochure, was "designed to be run
in supervised, sanctioned drag-strip competition by those qualified....Yet,
it is stock in every sense of the word." Powered by "the best performing
engine to come off a production line," the Max Wedge Plymouth was the
logical progression from the 1962 413ci version.
Along with aluminum front fenders and bumper, the car's alloy hood featured
a large dual-inlet scoop feeding two high-flow Carter 4-barrel carbs bolted
to a cross-ram intake manifold. Despite the engine's mass, an
aluminum-bodied Max Wedge car weighed in at only 3,200 lbs.
On the track, the big-block Plymouth won everything in sight and helped
raise the profile of Super Stock racing to main attraction status. This
1963 Max Wedge, a gem from the Reggie Jackson Collection, demonstrates the
roots of that winning formula. Ermine White with a Blue bench seat interior
and push-button Torqueflite automatic, its aluminum front sheet metal
includes the scooped ram-air hood, and the American Torque Thrust wheels
are perfectly period-correct.

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.
