Pieces Parts

Nice aluminum dash trim on Uncle Crusty, the Fury parts car, that will be saved for Dragon2. Use of this trim is actually a holdover from the Exner era '62 Plymouth B-Bodies.

Shop News 3.5.18

Wasn't in the mood to lie on the cold cement to run the new fuel line on the '63 moredoor so I took to starting on the fenders instead, both need to go down to bare metal. These two are off the Fury parts car and are fairly solid, though the one pictured needs metal work around the turn signal. The Savoy's original fenders are roached beyond repair.

Ready For Winter

Ran the Savoy up to operating temp one last time before I dropped the fuel tank, getting ready to replace the fuel line, tank and sending unit. While the tank's off, going to do some clean-up work and install new rear shocks.

Where it all began...

December 1977. One 1963 Plymouth Savoy moredoor sedan. My first car. I chose it only because it was what I could afford at the time. An elderly woman had it listed in the local paper for $100. Today, this one's the first B body I've owned since high school. Of course, they were a little easier to find back then. And in slightly better condition. This one's big selling point? Not the body, that's for sure. But, it does have a nice clean, original interior that would cost thousands to replace.

Original build sheet, found under rear seat springs.

As found. One owner. Unmolested. Mint interior.
