Nice Fury. I had a '70 also, a 2dr hard top (PM23) with a 383. Same color too.

2dr hard tops look awesome.  this one had a 318 2bbl and 28k miles.  It took a little old lady to church, and to the store for years.

I wish I did.  It was a fun car.  I sold her a few years ago when I had to move for work.

Beautiful car.
At least you got to enjoy it while you had it.

And besides, your Dip is a total sweetie.

Few updates on my car:
Most recently I repaired my headliner with new fabric.  It's not an exact color match, but very close.  Non the less it looks great!!  Some where I read to use contact cement...yeah that didn't work to well.  I ended up using the lock-tight spray glue.  I had some troubles with the fiberglass backing.  It was really hard to scrape the old glue off without removing some of the fiberglass.  As a result my finished product has a few lumps here and there.  I had to peice the fiberglass together and tape it, as it was really brittle.  My Mother also drove over....which didn't help at all LOL.  I pulled a replacement peg-board type headliner out of a much older car at the junk yard.  I ended up not using it, as it smelled like old car and rat pee.  I was glad that my fiberglass one was able to work still.
The other project was my fuel line and carb.  I was having huge fuel consumption issues, so I pulled a carb off a Ram Truck and put it on my car.  I could tell a big diff right away.  Car started awesome like.  Right after I was smelling a LOT of gas, and had gas leaking from the car.  I traced it down the fuel line and seen that the fuel filter rubber hose peices were trash.  I'm not sure how I was getting any gas to carb with how bad they looked.  I snapped a new fuel filter on with new hose peices and I'm in business.  Car is running really good.  The best it has since I took ownership. 
I finished installing new speakers in the rear deck.  I have some pics I'll post of the project soon.  The stereo sounds great now!! 
This weekend I need to put on some new breaks.  Got the car going good, now I just need to get it stopping good.

Nice man glad to hear she is running good now. You still have the lean burn right?


Another question, how hard was it to put new speakers in the rear? I want to put some pioneer speakers back there but I haven't even looked to see how hard it would be? A lot of disassembly required?
