That car had a 150 mph speedo. Had it pointed to "D" once (or where D would have been had it not been a floor shifter)...it left many a built camaro behind. The only car that ever got the best of it was a '70 Hemi 'Bird.
My first car was a '67 Fury Interceptor. 383CID with 440 heads from the factory + some other mods. It was a dud off the line but once the Certified speedo got over 45, hold on! It was a great sleeper and took many cameros, firebirds etc. 4.11 gears were very popular back then and my 3.12 would just keep on climbing usually running out of road before running out of motor. I never new how fast it would go, something past D.

I've been building and driving Mopar's ever since. Life begins at 120. When you get to 150 strange things start happening.
