Updated – We have been featuring photos from the University of Pittsburgh Library recently and have found a number of period new car images in the collection to share with you, taken for various automakers by professional photographer Harold Corsini. Three of his photos chosen for today are of a 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury that were shot at a ski area located at the Seven Springs Resort southeast of Pittsburgh in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania.
Corsini’s photo shoot featuring the Sport Fury which was available as either a convertible or a hardtop was a fairly involved undertaking that utilized as many as ten models in one of the other photos and was staged while it was snowing.
Following his photographs below are the Sport Fury specifications and the available options that included a “four-on-the-floor transmission with Hurst linkage,” 361 ci and 383 ci V-8s, and the Super Stock 426-Stage III in full race trim and a picture of the interior in red. Richard Petty ran a 426 ci Hemi V-8 for the first time in his Sport Fury on the Nascar circuit.
