1965 Plymouth Sport Fury Convertible
A ram-air intake is any intake design which uses the dynamic air pressure created by vehicle motion to increase the static air pressure inside of the intake manifold on an internal combustion engine, thus allowing a greater massflow through the engine and hence increasing engine power.
This 1965 Plymouth Sport Fury possesses both looker and cooker qualities. A delicious Black c\Cherry exterior, and under the hood a 440ci engine with cross ram induction. If this is not enough, put the top down, but make sure your toupee is glued firmly down!
Tasty Black Cherry paint covers the fairly straight steel panels on this car. Two scoops also of Black Cherry house the air cleaners that are attached to the cross ram. Chrome is equally as tasty, showing in very nice condition, as the front grille, and badging. An off-white convertible top, (let's call it cream) is in nice condition and moves up and down electronically and flawlessly. A dark boot cover snaps easily into place and remains very flexible. Zenith 15” true knockoff wheels on all four corners and a spare.
Black vinyl buckets with plenty of chrome trim around them reside in a very clean interior. A rear bench emulates the buckets, and all this sits in a dark brown field of door to door carpet. A black over red dash in true stock design form from 1964 is fronted by an original steering wheel. A center console in wood veneer and polished aluminum, houses a Hurst ratchet shifter, and a clock, as well as an aftermarket air/fuel mixture monitor. Door panels present well, with all working cranks and door handles.
This is the money shot, the coup de gras, the motherload, the Chrysler 440ci V8 with the cross ram induction, topped by 2 Edelbrock 600 CFM Carbs. Within this mill is a Mopar Cam with 284 degree-484 lift, “purple cam” hydraulic lifters. All this fed by a Holley electric fuel pump, fired by a Mopar electric distributor and an MSD 6 AL spark control. Exhaling is provided by Hooker headers, and dual exhaust with chromed flat tips.
A true piece of Mopar muscle car history, just gazing at the dual cross ram system is enough to start a drool. This can definitely be satisfied by stopping by Classic Auto Mall and take a bite out of our parking lot with the rear tires of this early muscle.
