From the shrunken heads department of our northern California Plymouth desk comes the report that the Shrunken Fury is not only mostly finished, but has made the cigar-chomping fat cat big time world of printed media. Shortened Mopar idea man and builder Alan Rutter himself relayed the good news that the Fury custom coupe that Plymouth never made is now gracing the pages of the July 2010 edition of Popular Hot Rodding magazine. It was difficult to see a finished anything when we first saw the Plymouth in two large dissimilar chunks on his shop floor. Alan says that at times even he didn’t even really know what he had unleashed by slicing up the Fury. Perseverance paid off. After seeing the finished and painted Fury up at Thunderhill during some sort of racing mayhem named after a tart yellow fruit, we enlisted some pals in order to get a few shots of the Fury in motion while Alan pummeled the Faster Farms ’66 Plymouth Belvedere around the race course. Huzzah for a true Moparnaut.
Special thanks to Tom, Elana, the ultra-smooth ride of their Dodge Polara, and Al’s Rapid Transit for making these photos possible. Popular Hot Rodding magazine is available at your favorite newsstand or other fine booksellers.
