Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

Great to know should I obtain a set of the PVC - Grey strips from this guy in Germany. I will keep this in my hip pocket. There are always more ways to accomplish a repair - just have to search out ideas. Sometimes the search can be just as much fun as getting getting and installing the parts. This ...

Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

The car upholstery people will be starting on fixing my sagging center section on the 59 Sport Fury within the next two weeks. They say they will remove the center piece and glue a stiffener material on the back side to get it back to it's original flat condition. Then they will then repaint before ...

Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

I called two different Home Depot stores and they do not handle the Armstrong Fiberglass Ceiling Panels. I gave them Internet #203328948, Model 403A, Store SKU 509748. They could not identify this ceiling panel. So I suspect it is no longer available. I checked with my local Lowe's store also and no...

Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

In my question #2 regarding what holds the center headliner up against the insulation, the reply was to let the side strips hold it in place. (don't even consider a "velcro" type holding option). The center piece side strips are what is presently holding my headliner up albeit some sagging present. ...

Re: Plastic strips for headliners found in Dodge Caravans?

I just returned from my local Chrysler Dealer and gave him the molding strips number L830HW6 mid roof 23-23-7. These strips, it was said, could be used in place of the original strips securing the outer pieces of the hardboard headliner with the center piece. The guy in the parts department here in ...

Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

Thanks for the prompt reply - I will do some checking on that insulation material. Good suggestion on rubberized type paint. I wish I was comfortable with placing photo's on this site. I see an "image" feature above that that I thought would allow me to go to my photo files and select the photo, but...

Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

I am looking to redo the headliner in my 59 Sport Fury and in reading earlier post on this subject the last post on headliners was about 5-8 years ago. #1: Ceiling insulation - Dick Koch suggested back then using 2 x4 ft suspended ceiling material insulation and glue it to the underside the roof. (O...

Re: The Great Milestone Mystery

I am the person who purchased Robert Hinds 59 Plymouth Sport Fury from him back in 2013. Robert had told me the he was the one who applied for having his Sport Fury recognized as a Milestone car. I still have the car and the Milestone Certificate. In all the information he gave me when I purchased t...

Re: Art Schlachter's Sport Fury

Thanks for the nice comments on the article I wrote in the latest POC Bulletin. At 74 years old, my mind says I-want-to-buy-another-car but my body is telling me NO. I noticed in this same issue of the POC ( in the "For Sale" section), is a 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible in what appears to be ...

Back to the drawing board - I tried inserting the photo of both wheels sitting side by side and after I hit "Submit" it didn't work. Sorry.

Re: recast steering wheels

Yes it wasn't clear to me on how to get pictures into this system. Frustrated, I mentioned I was having problems getting pictures in this system and only after I hit "Submit" the pictures showed up. I was expecting to see them before I hit Submit, so I could be sure I entered the correct photo's. I ...

Re: recast steering wheels

After waiting about a year, I just received my re-casted steering wheel from D & D Automobilia. The newly recast wheel looks fantastic and D & D tells me that the clear material will stay clearer much longer than the original material from the factory. I wish I could figure out how to place photo's ...

Re: 59 Fury Power Steering Pump - can't find

I did exactly what I said I would do and I now have a 2nd power steering pump (again rebuilt by Lare's), setting on the shelf as a backup. I think your scare tactic of suggesting a bad pump can cause catastrophic problems with other parts of the power steering system is an extremely unlikely case of...

William, send me your email address and state where you are located ? (I know it is not Kentucky as my 59 Sport Fury is the only one in this state.) I still have the wheel in my shop but have sent in the $400 deposit to get on his waiting list to recast the wheel. He has a 6-7 month lead on work so ...
