brake switch smoke!

Picked up Sporty today after she got the new leaf springs! Wow, what a difference. After arriving home I was trying to find the issue I'm having with the turn signals. Blinking fast as if there is a something grounding out. Both sides. With tail lights on, signal barely visible. Almost like a short....

Re: Arrived today!

My picture shows where the mount is missing and if you look closer at the one in the rear you can see it's rusted through and there is no bolt in the bottom! So there is an additional re-enforcement piece also missing? Sounds similar to my old VW convertibles. I take it there are no re-fabricated co...

Re: Arrived today!

Today allowed some time to really look the new addition over closely while doing some detail work. After recharging the battery overnight and filling the tank with ethanol free gas, she fired right up after adding a little gas to the carb. A few coolant leaks developed pretty quickly, most of which ...

Re: Arrived today!

Thanks guys! She is definitely a 20 footer. Very solid and dry but with quite a few touchups, a few dents and several dinged trim pieces. I've located a front valance, rear bumper guards, golden commando air cleaner and proper trunk materials, but there will be plenty to do over the winter months. ...

Arrived today!

Plenty to do on her but can drive as is while I’m working on it. The plaid has got to go. Need a trunk lock, some issues with horns and turn signals. But a real issue is I can’t get the top to go back up!!! Any suggestions?

Thanks Dan! Yes its Greg. This is a nice forum, albeit a smaller group than the VW community. That should make this cars parts locating and revival even more fulfilling!

New Member!

Hello fellow ‘59 ers! I just purchased this sport fury out of Minnesota. Some may recognize it as it was formerly at the Miami Auto Museum. It will require several hard to find bits and pieces but the great news is that it’s solid and has the 361 Golden Commando! Matt K has been helpful already but ...

Front valance also!

Thanks to Mathew K, I realize my car is also missing the front lower valance! I realize this is a shot in the dark but if you can help let me know! I'm keeping this car in honor of my father who was a long time chrysler / plymouth owner. I grew up riding in the rear facing seat of the plymouth wagon.

Golden Commando Need!

I see this has been requested before...I am looking for a 361 / 395 Golden Commando air cleaner for my Sport Fury! Any help or direction would be appreciated! Have a beautiful 383 air cleaner ( I believe '57-'61) for trade or partial trade if interested.
