Description 1965 Plymouth Sport Fury Big Block 4 speed


Original Paint “Numbers” car (
Chrysler didn't stamp engine or transmission w/ VIN until 1969 –
But date codes are correct)

Engine – A = 1965 383 H.P. Stamped on engine Boss below distributor

Casting # 2468130-4 LL 8-4-64

Transmission C-95639 64-65 Trunion Style 833 4 speed

Original HURST Super Comp shifter

Everything works-- Park lamps,
Headlights, HI/LO, Turn signals, brake lights, gas gauge, temp,
ammeter, speedo, lighter, dome lights, adj speed wipers, heater, even
the clock!

I really tire of terms like “Barn
Find” and “tribute” so, The reality is I found this piece of
Americana sitting in a lean-to with decades of “treasures” piled
on and around it----And it shows.

The car is scratched, rock chipped,
has dings and minor dents. The paint is worn through in several
places. It is mostly original paint that has NOT been babied, and is
50 years old. The lower rear quarters have been replaced with fresh
metal. The trunk floor will need replacement soon. The rest of the
car looks solid – floor plans, rockers, cowl, door, fenders etc.
are in good shape, doors open and close well, windows roll up and
down. You really can't hide much under 50 year old paint – what
you see is what you get.
The Engine-
Original 383 has
been rebuilt at some point – the late 80's is my best guess. Pistons look to be cast and are stamped .030. Cylinder walls looked
great – with no visible ridge. Oil Pressure 75 PSI cold. I
installed “452” hard seat heads with stock 2.08 / 1.74 valves –
fresh valve job w/ 30` back cut. Heads were cut .065 with a gentle
angle mill – Compression remains @ the mid 10:1 range, and you can
still put an out of the box intake on it. It uses pre '68 push rods
with post '68 lifters and a small cut on the valve stems to maintain
good valve train geometry. It has a mild 280/480 cam and comp valve
springs and two row timing set. 70's vintage WEIAND 7501 Intake and
Carter Comp 750 carb. Old Mallory Dual Point distributor w/ Pertronix
Electronic conversion – and some 70's era Cal Custom valve covers,
and custom Ram Air to complete the look. Mid length Hedman Headers w/
2 ½ Mandrel bent exhaust and DynoMax stainless Ultra Flo mufflers
comprise the exhaust.
New Mcleod Street Pro clutch kit; new
aluminum radiator, and water pump installed at the same time as
engine work all within the last 10 months.
The rear tires
were new L60-15 PolyGlass Goodyears from 1978 I found at a garage
sale – the fronts are F78-15 Carlisle with a very similar tread
pattern – they drive terrible, and probably aren't safe, but they
look perfect for the car so......
The brakes are original
drums, shoes, wheel cylinders, springs and hardware are reasonably
fresh and work well.

The rest of the suspension could stand
to be freshened up (ball joints, tie rods, bushings etc) I put new
KYB shocks on the front, it helped some, but still wallows through
the corners, and wanders – modern tires would probably help.

Overall, it has been very dependable and fun to drive – If
you want a flawless “Indoor Car Show” kind of vehicle, this isn't
the one. It's more of a “Battle Scarred Warrior” type of street
car that you can use outside. The uppity types walk by and look at it
like they need to run off and get a Tetanus shot – but that's cool
with me.

I have the original heads, 4 barrel
intake manifold, exhaust manifolds, radiator, and 4 blade fan, that
will come with the car. I also have an extra hood, fenders, and
complete doors in great condition, that I will let go with the car
if wanted.

I Have clear Wa. Title that was last
issued in the 70's to who I think was the second owner, That was the
last time it was transferred.

Big Block 4 Speed Originals have always been sought
after – but they are getting expensive and hard to find. Own an
affordable piece of American history.
