Yes they are leafs but the chassis wasn't changed. This was before everyone thought you had to change the frame to make mods to a car.

It had leafs in the back and "Raised spindles" on the front that were fabricated brilliantly at some shop in South San Francisco, I don't remember the name of the place. But those spindles were a work of art, half inch steel plate welded to the original spindle.

My grandparents had a mid sixties Fury II wagon that never gave them a lick of trouble. When the other cars wouldn't start in the cold New England winters, the Fury always did. When they moved to Fla in 1980, the guy at the garage gave them top dollar for it. I lost track of it in the late 80's but the mechanic still drove it. I really miss that tank.
