What a beauty!! Sounds like a job for Matthew the Plymouth punch card master! But sounds to me like your not too far off. Is the original GC 395 still under the hood?

Hi Speekfreak1984 (real name?), I took the liberty of rotating the card and cropping it here:

Will is right, Matthew is our resident decoding expert. I'll give him a headzup and ask him to comment.

Do you know how many were made with these options?
I also heard that the VV paint code was only available on the sport fury.Don't know if that's a fact or not.
Does anyone know where I can get brake lines for this car?

That is correct, the bronze was only availible on the Sport Fury, Matthew probably has a good estimate of the numbers. The bronze was a really popular color on SF's because it was exclusive to them. Your car sounds well optioned with the GC 395 and the suregrip rear. Brake lines your more than likely gonna have to bend up your own.next to nothing is made for our cars. Rockauto has a lot of parts for the suspension amd other things but I don't know of a source for pre bent lines. Easy to do your self tho using your old ones as a pattern.

Post some more photos of your car, I'm dying to see more of it and hear where you found it!!

I have no numbers on colors made or cars with these options.
Bronze was indeed a Sport Fury only color.

Just like Will said, brake lines are easy to make.
Also, more pics!!!

I just checked out your vid!

The fabric inserts on the seats and door panels are non original and it’s missing the buckles. Dash pad has been replaced too as it needs to be black to match the black dash.
The clock and ash tray + lighter are standard equipment on the Sport Fury.
It’s looking really good though!! What are the plans for it?

I know this is a Plymouth forum but that cts-v :o that’s awesome
