    I think the wife has decided to sell her 2011 Jeep and make this her daily driver. So it looks like I will keep this just like it is.

  2. I think of all the cars I've owned, the 65 Sport Fury is the one I wish I still had.

    Great score my friend!

    Is that a lightweight battery cable dangling over the exhaust manifold?

    Ground cable. Someone mounted the battery in the trunk. That will be removed and the battery installed where it belongs.

    Finally found a stock battery tray, brace and hold down. I never expected to have some much trouble finding one. I was told the people making them have discontinued manufacture and the one I bought was the last one in inventory.

    Well, after installing the battery and tray. Pulled plugs the plugs to run compression test. Only to find right side blown head gasket and 4 cylinders with very low compression. Motor will be coming out soon.

    Grew up in Phx, AZ, 1963...I was 15yrs old working on my Chevy hot rod..was always giving crap to my sister's boyfriend who had a brand new 1963 Golden Commando Sport Fury, 4 speed, 383", radio and heater delete.
    He finally took me for the ride of my life. I can still feel the thrill of him power shifting through the gears.
    Never gave him crap after that. Still a Chevy guy, but Mopars and your car are way cool!!

    Nice find! The biggest issue with the 361 is new pistons if you have to go that far...forgings will be just about the best option.

    Fingers crossed for just a bore clean up hone and no piston necessary. Morrison Machine in Glendale, AZ has been my place to go for years and I know we be able to make things work out. When I pulled the fuel tank to clean out the varnish, it was like swiss cheese.

    '64 Plymouth's are great. Lots of engine options and nice body style. Any Darts among the cars you're helping the widow move(or Barracudas)?

    I bought the off topic Cuda and drive it often. The only vehicle left is an off topic Monte Carlo. The metal building is still full of auto machine shop equipment along with parts that fill it and the 40 conex container.
