Good morning! I thank Ron Keij for inviting me to join 😊

I am now in the process of planning pickup of my all original ‘59 Sport Fury. Needs some work but it’s a running, driving complete car. Black on red. I’m so excited! Its the first time I’ve been buying parts and planning the restoration before the car even got here. Hoping to have her home Saturday.

Joe, speaking of cherished resources - you can do no better than Ed Eckerson, from your neck of the woods (Holbrook). You'll find his restoration here in the Showcase. Ed doesn't frequent the Forum much - he prefers email - but I'll be happy to e-introduce you if you like.

Joe sent me this question:

Hmmm... I'm not so sure. What are your thoughts, Matthew? (I'll contact Matthew separately to make sure he sees this post.)

If I look at the top of the seat I can see one of the snap buttons. I bet this is a cvt rear seat!

All Sport Fury hardtops had the dip in the middle.

Just FYI, the vert rear seat back is hard to find and probably expensive!
