Default 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury 426-S

1964 Sport Fury convertible 426-S in WW1 White with Bermuda Turquoise interior. Console auto with pwr brakes, pwr steering, pwr top & pwr windows. Sold new May 1964 at Bill Eger Motors Denver, Colorado. Made it's way east to Texas sometime in the late 90's where it was restored and the engine/trans were rebuilt. Galen Govier certified in 2003 and at that time was #3 in V.I.N. sequence of 8 known in his registry. Being a dry southwest car from day one it is a very dry car and seems to have all its original sheet metal. I have procured numerous NOS items and have installed them on the car such as reverse lights, reverse light back up switch, rear view mirror, side view mirror, Sport Fury trunk script, washer bag, distributor vacuum advance, firewall bulkhead connector, fuel fill cap, Mopar 34P plug set etc. Original Prestolite dual point distributor restored with NOS internals by Joe White. Correct date coded plug wires provided by Lectric Limited of Bedford Park, Il. Battery provided by Jim's Battery Mfg of Youngstown, Oh. Radiator by Glen Ray Radiators of Wausau, WI. Brake booster restored by Dewey Booster, Portland, Oregon. All chrome, aluminum & stainless steel has been restored and shows very well. Interior provided by SMS in Oregon and sewn by Legendary Interiors. The original 426-S has been bored 0.20 over, align honed, block decked, rods stressed relieved, rods resized, rotating assy balanced and short block clearances blueprinted. Only the best of the best internals utilized, Ross pistons, Childs & Albert rings, REV S/S valves, Melling oil pump, Clevite mains & rod bearings, Cloyes double roller timing chain, Comp Cams stock grind cam, bronze guides, double valve springs, Fel Pro engine gasket set. Cam degreed in. All machine shop work photo documented. A set of correct Coker 7.50 x 14 Custom Power Cushion tires with 1" whitewall truly give the car the right factory stance. Rear springs have been re-arched. Original 3.23 non S/G with factory tapered axles & drums. Lots of $$$ has been spent on the car and it shows. The 426 is strong with a super smooth idle. The one modification completed, an Edelbrock Performer intake with a new Edelbrock AVS2 650 cfm carb which yielded a MUCH improved throttle response and power. Car is a joy to drive top down & gets it's fair share of attention every time.

I always had a soft spot for the 64 Plymouths. Great looking grill. My dad had a 64 Belvedere - beige with a beige interior. 318 poly with a pushbutton torqueflite. Very fond memories of that car.

Thumbs up 64 Plymouth...

That car is the bomb...just stunning...no other way to describe it.

When I go to dark side...it will be in a car like that.

Dick Shawn drove a red/red 1962 Dodge Dart 440 in that film.
And that is the Best movie ever made by mankind.
