Warren Iverson’s two-door ’67 Plymouth Fury I cop car

The list of previous Chrysler products includes a ’64 Sport Fury, a ’71 Demon 340, an ’87 Gran Fury police cruiser, and a ’67 Barracuda that found its way into these pages back in the Feb. ’00 issue. Warren’s previously owned lineup points to his odd predilection toward working both ends of the Mopar vehicle body spectrum. Warren’s latest build continued his infatuation with law enforcement.

After he learned the state of New Mexico ordered 25 two-door law enforcementûpackage Plymouth Fury I’s back in 1967, the search commenced. Warren wanted what he calls a long-distance car, and he went to great lengths to get it, travelling all the way from Minnesota to New Mexico to bring back the remains of a $350 two-door post. Inevitably, the resurrection required the investment in three more parts cars from the vast reaches of North America, including rollers from North Carolina, New York City, and even Toronto, Canada.

Tech Notes

Who: Warren Iverson

What: ’67 Plymouth Fury I

Where: Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, where the cops probably know Warren very well.

Engine: Elwood was right on target, as Warren’s engine is in fact a breathed-on 440 bored 0.030 over with forged KB pistons and 9.75:1 compression. The cam is a Comp grind with 230/236 degrees of duration at 0.050 with 0.488-/0.491-inch lift and ported iron heads. There are Crane roller rockers under the stock valve covers, and the intake has been Extrude-Honed to help transmit the air/fuel mixture from the Carter 750 AFB (what else?).

Warren also Extrude-Honed the exhaust manifolds and keeps everything cool with a seven-bladed clutch-fan assembly. Warren says the engine makes a healthy 465 hp at 5,200 and 528 lb-ft of torque at 2,800.

Plymouth Electric Cars

Transmission: Expect nothing less than a 727 TorqueFlite for a highway patrol car, to which Warren has added a 10-inch converter that stalls at 2,800 rpm and a BM shift improver kit. The driveshaft even features the big 1350 U-joints.

Rearend: The classic 83?4-inch rear axle assembly sports a 3.55:1 rear gear with a Mopar Sure-Grip to make sure both tires spin equally.

Suspension/Brakes: We’re not sure about cop shocks, but Warren has added a 15:1 fast ratio steering box and an Addco rear sway bar while retaining the stock 7?8-inch-diameter front bar. The front discs are matched with a set of police-spec 11-3/4-inch rear drums.

Wheels/Tires: Those are 15×8-inch steel police wheels mounted with Tiger Paw Enforcer 235/75R15 tires.

Interior/Exterior: The cockpit is classic ’60s Mopar fare, with a genuine General Electric police radio and a Motorola speaker bolted to the dash. Warren has added a pair of Auto Meter oil-pressure and water-temperature gauges that were not standard police-car style. We also spied a couple of switches on the left side of the steering column for the lights and siren. The light on top is an official Federal Sign and Signal Corporation Model 17, called the Beacon Ray, in case you were wondering.

That’s some trivia that might elevate peer status in certain circles. Or maybe not.
