This 1966 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible is the kind of classic that we're all on the lookout for. With big block power (possibly original), well preserved luxury appointments, great documentation, and an overall rarity – less than 3,420 built in '66 – this is a ton of distinction for quite a nice price.
A crisp white convertible with a black top is a timeless symbol of premium. So aren't you glad someone already invested the money to get it the color you would have done anyway. And while this was born a red car, the older professional application makes it look like it came that way from the factory. The whole Plymouth appears highly original, because this was a nicely cared for car. It's a two-owner droptop, and the first owner had it for four decades. And it has been treated with respect all its life so much that we even suspect the low mileage could be actual. You'll love how this has preserved all the right premium Sport Fury trim, including the C-channel that runs the full length of the car, tri-color Sport Fury flag, fender skirts, and even the hood ornament is still in place. And from the moment people see the bright extra-wide grille and stacked headlight, they know this is a substantial machine.
With the flip of a switch, the black roof disappears to reveal a nicely preserved black interior. This is the ultimate Fury package, and that means bucket seats with an artful center console. And the rear seats, door panels, carpeting, and even the convertible boot cover have a deep dark appearance, so you'll be proud to show this one off. In fact, there is an overall feeling of quality as you notice the little things, like the clean trunk with proper mat and that the interior lights that are still working. You grab the cool factory three-spoke steering wheel, and in front of that is the familiar rectangular Plymouth speedometer that's flanked on your left by auxiliary gauges. On your right is an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo so you get better tunes for top-down fun.
This Sport Fury truly lives up to its name with big block power under the hood. This came from the factory with the 383 cubic-inch V8, and it still carries a 1966-correct block today. The timeline even fits to make sense for this to possibly be the original motor. Regardless, once people catch a look at all the correct Mopar turquoise on the motor, valve covers, and air topper, everyone who sees it will just assume it has been there since day one. You can tell by the belts and hoses that the V8 has been under good maintenance, and the way this one readily fires up confirms it. The V8 idles nicely, and it pulls strong as the three-speed automatic transmission clicks through the gears. Plus, you have the modern grip of Hankook Optimo tires, and the power steering lets you cruise effortlessly with just your fingertips.
The sale some complete with all the right paperwork, including the original dealer invoice, bill of sale, warranty card, owner's manual, and a large maintenance file. So you're looking at a terrific total package cruising convertible for a very obtainable price. Don't let this Sport Fury slip away, call today!
