Ok, not much of a build thread, more of a here it is thread with some possible building lol

What is it? A boat. That's what it is lol She's a '68 Plymouth crownvicbeater... erm, I mean Sport Fury III. 318c.i. V8. 727 3-speed auto. 8 3/4 rear. She's a big girl and I gotta butter her hips to get her in the garage but it feels right. Not a whole lotta "Sport" in it though, it could've used a 383 or 440 upgrade when it was ordered and Chrysler could've put a sway bar on.... probably needs some shocks too.... but it's the easiest driving thing I've ever drove. Fantastic mpg. To be honest, the 318 gets up and flys. The handling isn't sporty but it is comfy! Imagine a floating couch lol

She was bought new by my great uncle Jess. He was an old guy when he bought it so it didn't take long to be passed down to my grandfather who then decided to skip my dad and give it to me when I was 7. (Favorite child is always the grandchild!) Not too shabby as a first car, eh? BigSmile

44 years old with (I think) ironically 44k miles. By the way, she's a survivor. All numbers matching. Factory paint. Original couches and desk... I mean seats and dash. Along with the carpet and everything else in the interior. No restoration here, it's circa 1968 through and through.

So where's the "build"? I'm seriously considering a dual pipe exhaust from TTI. It still has the factory single exhaust pipe. Which isn't much "exhaust" it's more of a little pipe that stinks up the place and sounds like you're humming a low note through a pipe. Also thinking about getting dad's vintage American Racing Tulip mags (I think they're called the 200S now?) and putting them on it. It's gotta have some "Sport" to it!

Lol. I'm willing to call a truce until racing season if you are, Kaleb. I'm afraid this is going to get out of hand soon, haha.
