I just got this '63 Plymouth Sport Fury Super Stock 426 Max Wedge mostly original unrestored car. Being stored in a barn for about 37 years it's a little rough round the edges but overall in great shape. It's a rare Red on Red factory manual floor shift 3 speed stick car that's never been cut up or modified. Fully documented in the Darell Davis book, it has ALL of the rare original Max Wedge parts intact and runs and drives like an beast! It's been mechanically redone and the body is pretty much all original with a lot of "patina". It's one of those cars that I could enjoy it "as is" or I could start a restoration on it and make it perfect again. I'm leaning towards leaving it original...

That's really neat. I love seeing cars in that condition. If it were mine, I'd leave it as is.

Wow, what a find. You don't find them in that original condition very often. I would have to drive it a few summers, then evaluate a restoration.

What a find and a real beauty. You already know they`re only original once. Anyone can have a restored car these days, very few can own an original car. Your choice.

Time to take it street racing!!! Leave that thing alone, a resto at this time is a no-no in my book.

WOW!! That is awesome. Leave it as is and drive the wheels off it!!
Although maybe some Torque thrusts in the front and steelies in the back may give it that racy look.

Gratuitous burnout photo please!!!

There is a third choice; repaint and blend where the paint is missing on the front fenders (and any other areas; hard to tell in the pics) and then enjoy as is.

Just another option which may prevent a total resto and save much of the originality. Very cool car.

Very nice car, I thought long and hard about buying that one when it was on e-bay a few times. The PO did a great job piecing the drivetrain back together, I know from experience, paying for these MW parts is very easy, it is FINDING them that is the hard part (he got the deal of the century on the T85 and bellhousing though)!

Leave it be IMO

Yes, the PO found the car about 7 years ago when it had been sitting idle for about 37 years. He did a great job resurrecting it to where it is today without actually restoring it. I plan to leave it as is. I too appreciate the originality of this car and the fact that it survived or was not subjected to the usual abuse most Max Wedge cars were treated to. Original fuel filters, fuel lines, carbs, coil, linkage, etc, etc, etc!!!

Hello,
nice car!!! I am restoring my 63 savoy as it was too rusty, but i like unrestored cars more.

for the little part on the steeringcolumn; check the b-body parts for sale-section, november or december, i believe there was one for sale, red in color.

best regards from the Netherlands,
Marcel
