That interior looks like mine did and mine was originally iceberg white. A heads up if you remove the doors do not forget to PRICK PUNCH the hinges for later location reference when they get re-installed.I forgot to do it and 4 doors is twice the frustration!! You are not too far from me as I see. Good luck,hop on the site if you need to know something. Mark

Thanks Mark for the tip and its nice to see people who are looking out for a fellow car guy. This is my fourth Forward Look car and i cant get enough all my friends (64 thru 74 & modern mopars guys ) have thought i lost my mind wen i went in this direction and that it was a fad i was going through even worst you cant make your money back when you get tired of them but eight years later i am more entrenched than ever.
I have always had a liking to the 59 so much as i didn't care if it was a four door or a coup god i love them shotgun fenders when you view them from behind the windshield ..... so thanks Mark for the reply and you got a great looking 59 i just read through every post you made on your journey in rebuilding your Fury ..... Nice work and have fun.

Yes i am coming to Carlisle But i know that my 59 will not be done in time i hope you will accept me even though i will be driving my White 60 Belvedere and hopefully if he is not swamped with work that my son in-law will bring his Red 60 Savoy also.
Remember it is Plymouth Power or nothing in my family. That's my Wife's Black 64 Belvedere thats she is selling to finance the 59 Fury that will be her car to drive :D

Butch; You have some very nice looking cars. I love "survivors" hence my signature. I have A 1955 Buick survivor. You could show up in A dump truck and I doubt if anyone would mind. Mark

Well this should blow your mind i have a 36 thousand mile 79 w300 dodge tow truck in original paint "Survivor" it also has been garage kept and hardly ever used the fellow who owned it would rather work in his shop and hated towing and would farm out the work.

So it sat for twenty years or more unused he only sold it to me because of a so called friend of his messed up the carburetor then tried to buy it off of him for around fifteen hundred bucks ... Nice friend i would say.

I got it running for him for free and thats how i got it .

I have too many cars and i can blame my wife for this addiction because she is also a car lover and never said no well maybe once or twice :mrgreen:

No problem on leaving the 59 at home! I'll be doing the same actually.

It's just fun to hang out and hunt for parts!
Anything you need, make a list and post it here! We can all keep out eyes open

Oh wow, this car is very nice. It is looking that it really hit very hard. You should give it to the service and by the way this car is awesome. If you will modify it will look fantastic.
