ORIGINAL 383CI MOTOR, FACTORY A/C FURY, VERY CLEAN AND RESTORED BACK TO ORIGINAL
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 block engines was a Mopar specialty, and this pretty yellow Fury doesn't disappoint, packing a 383 cubic inch big block and a no-frills attitude that is insanely appealing.
Most guys wouldn't expect a pretty yellow car like this to stomp them on the street, but that's exactly what this Fury was designed to do. It's perhaps a little darker than the original SS1 Ivory paint, but it looks so good nobody will ever complain. The straight body lines demand careful bodywork so it doesn't look haphazard, so the guys 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 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. The chrome and trim is in good order, 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...
Black bench seats and a no-nonsense interior is more proof that this car was built for just one purpose. The upholstery is in excellent condition with no splits or tears and it's quite likely replacement stuff that was very well installed. The cool rectangular dash pod dominates the driver's side, with auxiliary gauges in the dash to the left of the main speedometer and aftermarket gauges under the dash, and all of it was clearly influenced by the spectacular Imperial instrument panels of the same period. Factory A/C is a big bonus, while the original AM radio still lives in the dash, but big 6x9 speakers on the rear deck mean that there's a newer head unit stashed out of sight. There's plenty of room in the Fury and the big 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 383 cubic inch V8 makes almost effortless torque and delivers the kind of neck-snapping punch that makes it hard to resist nailing the throttle every chance you get. The engine bay is nicely detailed with Mopar Turquoise on the block and fairly stock components throughout, and while it was probably cleaned up a bit when the car was painted, there are no signs of major work under the hood. It starts easily and runs great, with an awesome big block bark from the brand new exhaust system underneath. A TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic is one of the era's more durable auto 'boxes and it's a big block Mopar, so you know it's not going to complain about having some fun. It's quite original underneath, and with painted steel wheels, dog dish hubcaps, and white-letter Uniroyals, it looks ready for the high banks at Talladega.
