Plymouth’s full-size Fury was clothed with new, wider and longer sheet metal for the 1969 model year and, notes The Standard Catalog of American Cars, was available in — count ’em — 17 models and five series.

The series were Fury I, II and III, Sport Fury and VIP. Fury I was your basic full-size car, available as a 214.5-inch-long sedan or 219.1-inch station wagon. Fury II added brightwork trim as well as a coupe architecture and a station wagon with third-row seating.

Fury III offered all that as well as a fastback roof version of the coupe and a convertible, plus foam-padded vinyl/nylon-covered bench seat, carpeting, concealed wipers, a clock and deluxe steering wheel.

Only 4,129 of the 1969 Plymouth Fury III convertibles were produced and one of them is the Pick of the Day. According to its advertisement on ClassicCars.com, the car has been “nicely restored,” has a Continental kit attached to its tail, and is available for only $12,900 U.S., which we mention because the car is being sold by a classic car dealership in Vancouver, British Columbia.

“Solid rust-free straight body with exceptional paint work,” the advertisement notes, adding that the car has been a “West Coast car all its life. Garage kept and driven sunny days only.”

The ad also notes that, “Continental kit can be removed very easily if it’s not your thing, however it seems to be the thing people love the most about the car.”

That must be some Conti kit because the 15 photos that accompany the ad show an immaculate vehicle inside and out and even beneath the hood.

Beneath the hood is a 318cid V8 that provides 230 horsepower to a heavy-duty 727 automatic transmission. The car also has power brakes and steering and, “drives like it did in 1969,” the seller says.

 

 

 

 

The seller notes that, “All lights, interior lights, gauges, radio etc. are working (clock is not).”

The seller will arrange shipping worldwide, the ad says, but if the car drives so well, why not fly to BC and drive this baby home? Oh, just do it before the weather turns too cold and dark. This Fury prefers sunny day driving.
