I'm posting this pic and comment from Tom Frassi, who emailed me:

Tom, if you are looking for a pair of eyebrows, John Diekewicz may still have his for sale - let me know, and I will put you in touch with him. Good luck with the restoration!

Hi Tom, Welcome!!!

I recognize this car! Did you buy it from Ted at Tedstunaboats.com? He had two for sale for a long time this one and a Copper Bronze that was pretty nice! She is going to be a beauty when restored! Nice thing is most all of the hard to find SF only parts are there. I am super happy to hear it found a good home and you found us here on the forum.

Killer 55!! With your electronic skills are you planning any modern upgrades on the SF?

Welcome to the site!

Here is the link for others to see some more photos of her old for sale ad.

Nice snag, Will! And because I *never* throw anything away that pertains to '59 Plymouths - here the images will stay, in perpetuity! :D

I need to remember to actually put photos on here, I always forget that the content of the links might get deleted on thier home website. I had talked to Ted the previous owner a few times last year while hunting for parts. He had two SF's in his inventory at the time, this powder blue and a bronze one. I kick my self for not buying the bronze one. Was a Complete 59 SF with a 413 in it and power swivel seats that he thought came out of a Imperial. It sold a while ago and I believe it is some where on the west coast now. No idea who bought it. Hopefully it will surface again some day.

Yes I bought it from Ted. I've located all the sheet metal to repair just about everything so now I will put it on the rotisserie and start the metal work.
I think this one unlike the 55 Belair will be mostly stock. I love the looks of these cars

I see the powder blue SF listed on Craigslist. Tom, are you planning on selling? Sad to hear that. Looks like you started to make some good progress on her.

https://charlotte.craigslist.org/cto/d/ ... 16001.html

"1959 Plymouth
condition: fair
cylinders: 8 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
paint color: grey
size: full-size
title status: clean
transmission: other
Offered is a Rare 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury 2 dr HT>99% complete car with a New Rotissorie and a new body cart. Car is removed from frame and almost all rust areas repaired with new floor pan and rocker panels. Also comes with numerous valuable extra spare parts. The sport Fury came with swivel front seats and a golden Commando 361 engine. Engine is there but needs rebuilding. If you are looking for a good project this is the one. Parts alone are worth more than the asking price."

Too bad he's selling it. It really looks promising.
