Muscle Car Of The Week Video #60: 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury 426 Max Wedge

This 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury was about as close to a drag-ready race car as you could buy from a dealer in ’63.

Built by CV Performance, John’s GT-R is now the quickest R32 in the world on street radial tyres. Weighing in at over 3800 pounds, Power comes from a custom 3.2L Nissan RB engine boosted by twin Precision turbochargers and a Motec EFI system that’s good for over 1000hp to the wheels.
