Re: GAS FILL TUBE BLOW BACK

I cannot solve the problem of lost gas in the filling process, but have a solution to any gas running out of the filling tube during a fill up. Bob Hinds (Previous Owner of my car) utilized a funnel with a hole cut in the side of funnel near the top. (See attached photos) Hole should be larger than ...

Dual master cylinder with drum brakes

I have just purchased off Ebay, a Kelsy Hayes C-57 Bellows Style Brake Booster. I plan to send it off for rebuild and then place it on the shelf as a backup to my existing K.H. Booster on my Fury. (My present drum brake system is working just fine) I am told that when you have to replace the Brake B...

Re: recast steering wheels

Yes, my steering wheel on my 59 Ply also cost $1800. In the cost, all the plastic was removed and the metal frame sent out for rechrome which means the chrome plating place has to remove old chrome on the core before new chrome is applied. Also, in the case of the Ply SF Wheel there are two small ch...

Re: Plastic strips for headliners found in Dodge Caravans?

Those substitute headliner strips that can be used in the 59 sport fury are not found in the Chrysler Caravan's as I first thought. They are to be found in the full size dodge and plymouth vans that have headliners. Often referred to as Chrysler Part Number L830HW6, were used in full size vans from ...

Hand brake warning light & audible alarm

I have on occasion found myself punching the "drive" push button and stepping on the gas and then hear a rubbing sound coming from the transmission tunnel housing. I then realize I in my rush to get going, I forgot to release the hand brake causing the brake shoes to wear. Plymouth back in 1959 had ...

Re: Fury horn ring

I am enclosing photo's of my old steering wheel sitting next to the one I just had recasted. As you can see my old wheel is in pretty darn good shape. The old wheel has a slight discoloration in the clear area, the handle grips are smooth (verses textured) and the clear material when casted flowed a...

Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

The first photo shows the sagging condition of the liner (person who did the work said it was on the verge of dropping in it's sagged condition. The second photo show the Sun Visor that were in rough shape. (I believer they were the origina...

Re: Cardboard Headliners for 59 Sport Fury Hdtp

I finally got my sagging center section headliner fixed by a local shop. I was very nervous because I had not done business with this shop and was uncertain of the young owner's ability. The new shop was recommended to me by an upholstery shop I had done business with in another town. I decided to g...

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. ...
