1961 Plymouth Fury


First day in the shop.

Click on a picture to see it in full size.

Since it was the big plymouths' first day in the shop I figured I'd get some general "before" shots.

The early 60's Chryslers always had some very unique design elements. Thanks to Virgil Exner.

The car looks pretty solid for its age. The spider web hanging off the leaf spring is a clue of things to come.

At this point the car is de-trimmed. Some cancer was found hiding behind the wheel opening molding.

The car was throughly powerwashed. Many decades of grime and hundreds of black widows were washed away.

The lower quarter panels had quite a bit of rust going on. The drivers side quarter also had a good deal of bondo from a poor previous repair.
