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
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
It was the last year for a full-frame under the car.
Chrysler Windsor Convertible
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.

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
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
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

Dodge Dart Sport
Rob Schackmann , New Berlin, Wisconsin
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.
