Cars like this 1965 Plymouth Fury III were muscle cars before we knew to call them muscle cars. Pared-down mid-size hardtops stuffed with big engines was a Mopar specialty, and this pretty turquoise Fury doesn't disappoint, packing a 318 cubic inch V8 small block and a no-frills attitude that is insanely appealing.
Most guys wouldn't expect a pretty turquoise car like this to stomp them on the street, but that's exactly what this Fury was designed to do. It's pretty spot-on to the original Code J Light Turquoise paint, and it looks so good in person from a couple feet away that nobody will ever complain if it's maybe not a 100% match to the original palate. The straight body lines demand careful bodywork so it doesn't look haphazard, so the builders did their job when this one was refinished, showing good gaps and no issues where the long strip of trim jumps from panel to panel. The driver-grade paint is quite nicely done, probably shinier than it ever was in 1965, and it almost seems inappropriate to go around stomping on Mustangs with a car like this. The cantilevered roof line was a Chrysler trademark throughout the '60s, and it works especially well here, imparting a sleek look to the otherwise conservative Fury, and we love that they left it white for a bit of contrast. The chrome and trim is in good order too, with much of being original, so it's not perfect but should give you a good idea of how nicely maintained this car has been all its life. Someone knew they had something special...
Blue bench seats and a no-nonsense interior is more proof that this car was built for the purpose of getting from A to B promptly, although if we're honest it's not just some Plain Jane 2-Door inside either. The upholstery is in full-blown survivor condition, with a couple random splits and stains acquired throughout the decades, but it's all still there and the authenticity alone is something that should be commended. Most of the signs of use are found in the high traffic areas on the front bench, and there's a split or two in the dash, but the carpets, door panels, and original steering wheel are all in really solid shape. The cool rectangular dash pod dominates the driver's side, with auxiliary gauges in the dash to the left of the main speedometer, and all of it was clearly influenced by the spectacular Imperial instrument panels of the same period. Factory A/C is a big bonus, and the original AM radio still lives in the dash, but both will need to be serviced to be enjoyed again, but we hope the original gear is repaired so that the authenticity of the cabin remains. There's plenty of room in the Fury and the small block doesn't seem to mind the extra weight, so grab some buddies and go have some fun. There's also a large trunk with a correct mat and matching spare tire with jack assembly, so it's also great for road trips.
Chrysler's 318 cubic inch V8 makes almost effortless torque and delivers the kind of smooth punch that makes it hard to resist nailing the throttle every chance you get, and with a believed 68,579 actual miles on the car, it's still running super-smooth today. The engine bay is nicely preserved with turquoise on the inner fenders and firewall, there's still remnants of the original Mopar Orange enamel on the block and valve covers, and there are stock components throughout, keeping in line with the car's survivor theme. It starts easily and runs great, with an awesome small block bark from the dual exhaust system underneath. A TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic is one of the era's more durable auto 'boxes and it's a Mopar engine after all, so you know it's not going to complain about having some fun. It's quite original underneath as you might expect, and with upgraded 'bullet hole' style alloys wrapped in 205/70/14 blackwalls, it's ready for Main Street.
Hard to go wrong with a Mopar that looks this good, goes this fast, and costs so little. Call today!
