I shamelessly ripped this off of YouTube. Where's the show, Dick?

Thanks Dan - this video was made at the Lake Mirror Classic (now The Lake Mirror Auto Show) in Lakeland, FL. October 2015 By Jack R. He also made videos of Charlene (red and white) and Bertha Irene (white convert.) At The Caladium Festival in Lake Placid, FL. Google 1959 Plymouth Jack R.

Another Facebook ripoff... This time, Charlene!
Dick Koch wrote:OK, rain finally stopped long enough to take Charlene, my 59 Sport Fury with a Dual Quad 318 Poly Engine down off the lift and make a walk around video with sound. The carbs are AFB 4971 front and 4970 rear. Research showed they were used on 70, 71 Dodge Dart Hi Performance (2 carbs) 426 engine. The cam is stock 318 poly. The electronic ignition is from a 73 Duster 340 engine using a GM modulator, 12 volt start, 12 volt run and a MSD black laydown epoxy filled coil.


Hmmm... This isn't a sales pitch, is it, Dick? :o :shock: :?

Dick, all of your cars are truly gorgeous! Each one far exceeds even the highest levels of excellence. Charlene's red paint and clear finish is so vibrant and smooth as glass and perfectly complemented be the laser straight stainless and trim and She sounds absolutely beautiful!

Dick, Matthew told me that my Miss Jade was built at the LA plant just 32 Sport Fury's behind your Greenie. I wonder if they were ever in the same parking lot at the same time waiting to get shipped out? Greenie is my inspiration of what I hope to some day have my Miss Jade looking like.

That's cool William, Greenie was first sold to a man in LA, he then sold it to his mechanic in LA.
