Description

The name Mancini has long been associated with Detroit-area Chrysler racing, and the 1963 Fury here has an even greater connection as it is currently owned by Ron Mancini himself. The multiple NHRA National Event eliminator champion began this project using a Florida-based car purchased with only 17,000 miles on it. Refinished in 1991-92, this Plymouth is equipped with a Chrysler 426 CI Super Stock Max Wedge engine blueprinted by Mancini and backed by the A727 TorqueFlite transmission. The 1963 release of this body was the transitional model between the previous Forward Look designs and the Pentastar muscle car era that ruled 1960s drag racing.

This two-door hardtop features original steel with no rust or added fillers. Its restoration was done by Auto Crafters Collision of Oxford, Michigan, and this car retains original cloth-and-vinyl upholstery as well as original exterior trim and chrome. Under the hood is the 426 CI Super Stock engine, wearing the cross-ram intake and Stage III heads. With an 11.0:1 compression ratio, it was blueprinted by Mancini, runs on premium high-octane gasoline and is now backed by a 15,000-mile 1965 A727 TorqueFlite featuring the easy-to-service slip-spline yoke. Pushbutton operated, this TorqueFlite was fitted with brand-new assemblies at restoration, and shift-quality calibration was done by Mancini as well, upgrading to a Street Hemi torque converter ahead of it. The differential is an 8.75-inch version with the removable center carrier, fitted now with a 3.23:1 axle ratio and Sure Grip.

Painted red with an offset Coral interior, the Fury features original factory fabrics on the seat upholstery, carpeting, headliner and trim panels, and the car has a period-style tachometer and underdash gauging installed as well. An original spare tire assembly with factory jack is in the trunk. Built as a drivable car, this Plymouth now shows 32,000 actual miles on the body. Mr. Mancini, whose background included transmission development as a member of the Chrysler Engineering team starting in 1963, was noted for his victories in Super Stock. This beautiful 1963 Plymouth Fury harkens back to the start of the factory wars, and it will be a treasured possession of its next owner as well.
