HIGHLIGHTS: Classic Forward Look Mopar that just can't be substituted! This is one of the most iconic Mopar body-styles of the 1950s, and represents just about everything Plymouth stood for at that time.
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, all of the rare chrome and trim is in place. This is an older restoration that has been shown and preserved as such.
This is an American icon that has been restored to original condition and kept up over the years. This car appears to have been built as a show vehicle at one time. It has held up well, and would be a great candidate for a weekend cruiser or for fun shows/events. The body is in great overall shape, and this car needs nothing cosmetically to be enjoyed.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This car was repainted in the original Sand Dune White color. Interestingly enough, Sand Dune White was the only color available on the Fury for 1957.
When freshly restored, this appears to have been a top-notch restoration. While this Fury is beginning to show some age since then, it is still a highly presentable car that would be a beautiful addition to any collection. The paint is in excellent condition with no bubbling or areas of concern. Some of the chrome is original and starting to show some age.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Original-style cloth and vinyl interior. The interior is in good condition, it was certainly refinished along with the rest of the car. Anyone who knows Forward Look Mopars knows that classic Mopar cloth/vinyl combination! The restorer opted to keep this car original, and that extends to the interior.
The interior is showing some wear here and there, and could use some TLC on the chrome pieces, but this is at least a 10-year-old restoration and that is to be expected. The interior is complete, and much like the exterior all of the hard-to-find parts appear to be in place. The unique door panels, headliner and trim are all present and in great shape.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: This Fury is equipped with a Chrysler 301 poly or “wide block” as some call it. This engine would have had a 4-bbl from factory but now has been equipped with the 2x4bbl carb setup that would have been present on the 318 Fury. It runs nice and quiet, just like an upscale Plymouth ought to.
This may not be a high-powered muscle car, but the 301 poly is no slouch. Outfitted with dual carburetors, this Fury has plenty of power and really embodies what Chrysler products were known for; big cars that are fun to drive. The push-button transmission is a must-have for any 1950s Mopar, and is coveted both as a novelty and a correct vehicle option.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: This is the essential Forward Look Mopar that will be recognized by enthusiasts and passerby everywhere. If nothing else, it is sure to draw a crowd anywhere you take it.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Christine... All kidding aside, there is a few electrical issues that need to be sorted out, take a glance at the does it work checklist below and you'll see that the headlights, reverse lights, wipers, etc.. are not operational and need to be addressed.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The GEN light comes on sometimes, so a generator rebuild may be in the future. Additionally, the original heater assembly has been removed, so if you want heat that would need to be addressed.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking to add an essential to their Mopar collection, or the Mopar enthusiast looking for that collection centerpiece. This is for someone who enjoys taking their car to shows, but wants to drive it there.
