1959 Sport Fury
1955 Windsor
1959 Plymouth Sport Fury,  Art &Linda Schlachter, Danville, Kentucky

This is a photo of my 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury that I have owned for the past five years.   The Sport Fury has won the AACA Senior Award,  and has been featured in the TV program Legends-of-the-Road and more recently been featured on Lokar Car Show on the Velocity channel on TV.    I love the car in everything from it's looks, styling handling and performance.  The car has “eye-candy” appeal when driving it on area roadways here in central Kentucky and receives a lot of “thumbs-up” from passing cars.   In the late 50's, the automakers produced chiseled, low-profile cars that were tastefully deocrated with a look and feel of luxury.   The styling was typical of Virgil Exnor – chief design engineer for Chrysler.  If your a fan of fins and chrome the 59 Sport Fury will certainly satisfy that  desire.    The long flowing forward canted tail fins with it's identifying round Tiffany style fender badges, blends in perfectly with the hardtop's roof line that begins where the tail fin starts and gracefully arches in the opposite direction connecting to the front windshield and support post.  Amazingly, the roof line is only 4-1/2 ft above the roadway and that's as it came from the factory.  The Sport Fury actually has a roof line that is lower than some of today's cars.  It was the only year for double-barrel style fenders.  The interior has swivel seats, and belt-buckle trim on seat backs and door panels.  (Belt Buckles were featured in high end furniture in the late 50's)  The car  features the 318 cu in wide block V8, torque-flight transmission and four barrel carburetor.  It was the last year for a full-frame under the car.   

   

 
1955 Chrysler Windsor Convertible 

Tom Sheaffer
Brookline, MA  

In 1999, I saw this car for sale at a Mopar show at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, MA, where I live, and it was love at first sight.  The previous owner got the car from a dealer who claimed that it had formerly belonged to a movie studio in California.  This Windsor has the 301 poly-head V8 and Powerflite transmission, and is fully equipped with power steering, brakes, windows and seat.  It has about 110,000 miles on it now.  The car has been painted in its original color, Wisteria Blue, and the interior was redone by a former owner all in white, rather than the original two-tone blue and white.  It won First in Class at the WPC National Meet in 2001.

1956 Imperial
1956 Imperial, Jon Yinger
The Blue Baron:
The Blue baron didn't start out so regal or blue.  The "pink Burrito" as I first called her was purchased on May 17th 2008 from a gentlemen in San Diego.  By September 10 the project was underway and the restoration project completed by Brea Auto Electric in just over 2 years.  The color scheme was changed to factory 1956 Chrysler stardust blue over Mediterranean blue.  My daughter gave  her the name "the Blue Baron" as the majesty of the car and the color change dictated.  The car has been in local car shows 3 times since completion and always wins awards.
1955 Chrysler C-300.   Rick Labuda   Statesville, NC

My 1955 Chrysler C300 has been repainted once, has the original headliner, door panels, & numbers matching hemi along with many other interesting original features.   Its a very nice driver that doesn't know what rain is, but likes sunshine and participates in local cruises and other events.  I was able to obtain its build sheet and verify all numbers.. This car is awesome to drive and gets driven more than any other of my classics.

1976 Dodge Aspen Station Wagon

Andy Wittenborn,  New York.

This 1976 Dodge Aspen station wagon was listed for sale in the WPC News. I called the owner, Dudley Morrison, and bought the car.The photos he sent looked great. After I paid him in full he sent me the title and I registered it (NYS). This car has a 318 V8, power steering, power brakes, AC, factory cruise and is in super condition. Looked great in the photos, even better in person. On March 19th we took Amtrak to Raleigh,NC, from NYC, to get the car. We took a taxi to the car where Dudley was waiting. From there we stayed over night with friends in Wake Forest. March 20th we drove as far as Harrisonburg,VA. and home on March 21st. The car ran very well, although the speedometer is off by at least 8-10 mph. 75mph is about 65 mph. I'll change the speedo drive gear in the trans. On  the trip back the car turned 33,000 miles.

1974 Dodge Dart Sport
Rob Schackmann  , New Berlin, Wisconsin

No, it's not a Duster!  It's my 1974 Dodge Dart Sport.  The Dart Sport replaced the Dodge Demon in 1973.  The Dart Sport was produced through 1976, when Chrysler replaced the A-bodied with the F-bodies.  I acquired my Dart back in 1993.  It has a modified 340 bolted to a TF727 transmission.  My Dart has the rare contriple option (fold down rear seat and canopy vinyl top).  It has the 340/360 interior decor.  If you're thinking 340's weren't an option in 1974, you're right.  My MOPAR was originally a 318 car with California emissions.  I have a distinct vision for my Dodge.  I'm trying to involve my wife and two kids  in my dream (they enjoy riding in it).  Eventually, it will be completely restored into my vision.
