Description

This 1967 Plymouth Fury III has been pampered since new.My father, the third owner, purchased it from a family member of the original owner, who had purchased it new in Idaho, then moved it to central Oregon some decades ago.It is completely rust free (with the exception of some surface rust on the rear bumper - see pictures), and shows no evidence of having been wrecked and repaired.The car has been garaged and wonderfully maintained and loving cared for each of its 97,000 miles, and it shows in the car’s appearance, reliability, usability and drivability.Even the factory spare tire is still in the trunk, unused.I do not believe you will find a nicer stock, original Fury III hardtop.

This Fury came from the factory equipped with a 318 V8 and 2bbl carburetor, backed by a 727 automatic transmission and an 8 ¾” rear differential.It has the deluxe cloth interior, power steering, and a few other niceties.The original owner paid the selling dealer to add Air Conditioning, which is still installed and complete and was working well up to a few years ago, although now my father feels the compressor is not functional.

The car maintains it originality with a few exceptions: it was repainted a number of years ago, and though still looks fine, the paint is not perfect.Custom dual exhaust was added in the last couple of years, complete with “glass pack” mufflers.The original AM radio is in the dash unmodified, but it is not working – there is a nice newer AM/FM/CD stereo professionally installed in the glove box.New chrome wheels and tires were installed in the last couple of years, and the car comes with its original hubcaps.

The Plymouth runs and drives great, and is very reliable and ready to go.When my father got the car, it had a rebuilt carburetor on it which he did not like.He replaced the carburetor and the car has not idled quite as smoothly since.He decided that it needed a valve job, and so purchased a set of very nice, expensive, high-end rebuilt stock heads – only to learn that the issues he felt he was experiencing were most likely from the carb he put on it. He has been driving the car with the carb like it is for some miles now, and not had a problem of any kind – it just gives him something to complain about. The new heads have not been used, and will be included with the sale. Also, my dad tells me that he suspicions that the left rear axle bearing may need service – since I have not experienced any noises or issues personally, I defer to his judgment on this. A very nice, very expensive aluminum radiator was installed within the last 10,000 miles, and a new electronic distributor set-up was put in within the last thousand or so.

As far as cosmetic flaws, the rear bumper has a few dings and some of the chrome plating is cracked, with surface rust showing through (see pictures).There is a tear in the headliner, right above the driver’s sunvisor (pictured), which I understand resulted from a registration packet that had been attached to the visor, somehow snagging on the headliner years ago – the pictures actually make it look worse than it is in my opinion.The front carpet shows wear, but nothing inconsistent with age and use, especially considering that it has been covered by mats.The trunk mat, which is a sort of hard vinyl, is cracked in a few areas – dad has kept it covered with some soft carpeting these last years.Of course, there are a few other small cosmetic issues which come with age, but again, I don’t think you’ll find a nicer one.

Time has been kinder to the Plymouth that it has to my father, so you now have the opportunity to pick up where he has left off, and enjoy this great car.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have; if I don’t have the answer, we will just give my dad a call – I know he would love to talk with you about the car.I can supply more pictures at your request.Please send me a note before you make an offer on the car, so that I know that you are a real person who is genuinely interested. Plan on paying a $1000 deposit within 24 hours of sale and the full amount within 7 days, and on having the car picked up within 30 days.The car is located near Florence, Oregon, and is, right now, in dad’s garage.We will be more than happy to assist your shipper should you chose, or to have the car ready for you to drive it home.
