1967 Plymouth Sport Fury
Virtually everyone knows Plymouth as one of Detroit's legendary muscle car divisions. And while it eventually spawned some of America's premier stoplight warriors, the brand itself started as Chrysler's entry level marque to rival Ford and Chevrolet in both sales and popularity. That means many of the storied muscle cars enthusiasts know and love began life like this stylish 1967 Sport Fury. This all-American cruiser HAS to be one of the coolest Plymouths on the planet! If you're a Mopar collector who's itching for some early Mopar American Muscle that'll be the star of every cruise night in town, this '67 Fury is your ticket!
This all steel rust free Texas (where everything is bigger) car to start out with and since entering Pennsylvania, it has not seen any snow covered roads, or salt. It has seen the inside of a garage, so we can safely say this car is in excellent condition! Read on…
A beautiful maroon covers the lower body steel panels that are laser straight, with great gaps between all panels. Paint courtesy Lichty Brothers, in beautiful downtown East Earl, Pennsylvania which is a first class operation, and it shows on the exterior. Contrasting gray covers the roof steel and has a hint of metallic. All badging and exterior chrome adornments are shiny and clean. Bumpers and grille appear just as nicely as the rest of the bling on this car. Solid chromed Crager wheels with gummy radials are seen on all fours. A flip of the trunk and a coated floor in beautiful condition jet black harbors the spare.
One word sums up the interior...New. New high back buckets with buttons with new seat belts that have shoulder harnesses, and a bench bringing up the rear, are seen in the red interior. Carpeting appears new, and headliner is just the same. The retro dash gleams with gauges, dials, toggles and wheels to control all working wipers, heater and air conditioning…” meet George Jetson…”. Original steering wheel fronts the dash and is wrapped with an aftermarket leather. Door panels are all very nicely preserved as expected. Last a custom built radio with aux cord input looks original, and made by Retro Radio, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
A completely rebuilt 383ci V8 with a mere 300 miles on it, is backed by a 727 3-speed automatic transmission. Also, a new 750 CFM Edelbrock Carb with dual inlet air cleaner sits proudly on top of the pristine mill. The newly cored radiator, and while we are at it, a shroud, and 7 blade 20” clutch drive fan keeps the muscle cool.
As expected, clean with slight surface rust and patina on surfaces but otherwise unremarkable. Front disc brakes have added power, and rear drum brakes have new hardware attached. Seen also is a 2.94:1 rear differential.
A fine example of a 1967 Plymouth with muscle. New creature comforts added, and mechanical upgrades have added much reliability to this vehicle. A wonderful paint job, with a great color combo, this is surely a head turner, and neck snapper. Remember, this example debunks the phrase “All hat, No cattle”, as definitely it has both!
