NSF Racing Plymouth Fury 218 Laps, Breaks Down 219 Still Triumphs

Y’all that the NSF Racing 1962 took the top prize at the Southern 24 Hours of LeMons last but some of you may be wondering how the Fury to beat out the Sputnik ’86 Nissan wagon (441 laps) or the and the Gang of Outlaws Parnelli Galaxie (243 laps) for the of Effluency. Clearly, I have in expressing just how unspeakably this car really is, and thus a monumental achievement its 218 laps the Carolina Motorsports Park course really was.

This car sat in a swampy field in for decades before being off by the NSF racing guys (their car, a CRX, failed so that they were to put their very nice 392 1951 Chrysler Saratoga Panamericana car onto a LeMons last year— accepting 392 laps— in order to get some time). It has rust in places you expect rust on a car; the roll cage keeps it breaking in several pieces on the track. The NSF Racing Fury was an overachiever.

Chrysler didn’t see fit to any sort of sway bar on the ’62 Fury, and NSF figured they’d be just with authentic 60s-vintage roll. Here’s the Fury Turn 1 at, oh, 20 MPH. Damn, ran out of again!

The real problems, however, lay the hood. The incredibly decrepit 340 was about what you’d from a 400,000-mile Detroit V8 random junkyard carburetor and system. Sure, the 340 is a great but not when it’s this

The oil blowby was so bad that Race was black-flagging the super-smoky Fury off the every few minutes. A lot of LeMons make some fairly smoke, so you have to be a real to lay down a smokescreen bad enough to be a visibility hazard on a LeMons

NSF Racing did their best the oil-spewing problems, valiantly one leak point after We made it very clear we wouldn’t accept a milk-jug-and-heater-hose system. so they changed the cover gaskets, added PCV valves and vacuum lines to try to the oil by burning it, everything you can think of.

The brakes, steering, seat brackets, and many other also acted up, which that the Fury would get out the track, do about a half-lap, and get black-flagged back in for some mechanical malfunction. Pit stop!

LeMons Chief Perp Jay insisted on testing out the brakes letting NSF Racing back on the and he returned from a brief with the instructions “Replace component in the brake system and let you back on the track.” That’s what NSF Racing did!

it was the slowest and most unreliable on the track, but the team never up and the laps began to mount. race, they’ve decided to go a bigger engine. In fact, going with a Mercedes-Benz 6.9

The Speedycop and the Gang of Outlaws had a best lap time a full ten quicker than the Fury, was quite impressive given the of the Galaxie. Not quite as bad as the Fury, but a total Bondo-coated heap its pretty paint job. The still has a shot at the IOE, by the way (in of its recently upgraded suspension)… and you be one of the drivers!

Speedycop is recruiting for his three-car assault on the Real of New Jersey 24 Hours of LeMons in New Jersey next month, and 600 buys you a spot behind the Those of you who have done any of road racing know a steal that is.
