Back in 1963, the Plymouth Sport Fury was about as close to a drag-ready car you could by off the dealership floor. It has a no nonsense look, and is powered by a 426 Max Wedge Super Stack V8 powertrain. This powerful V8 boasts an 11.1:1 compression ration, and was advertised to have 415 horsepower at 5600 RPM.

The dual-quad short ram intake, high-lift camshaft, high-flow exhaust, manual transmission, Sure Grip rear end, and simple design helped the cars push limits. They were known for breaking records in Super Stock drag racing in their day. This is one of the faster stock drag-read cars in the Brothers Collection.
