Pick of the Day: Low-mileage 1966 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible

Car was driven for only 2 years and then went into storage

-

For the 1962 model year, Plymouth introduced an even more premium version of its top-of-the-line Fury model, the Sport Fury.  A low-mileage, original-condition 1966 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible advertised on ClassicCars.com by a private seller is the Pick of the Day.

In the ad, the seller reports the car was purchased in 2020 from its second owner, and with only 20,750 original miles traveled.

“Story is the original owner purchased it in Baltimore MD in February of 1966, drove to California twice and it was garaged since 1968,” the seller explains, adding that the second owner rebuilt the car’s 318cid Polysphere engine with a 2-barrel carburetor, and also refreshed the 3-speed Torqueflite transmission, installed a new gas tank and mounted the car on new tires.

For the 1966 model year, the Sport Fury came with a 318cid V8 engine rated at 230 horsepower. Only 3,419 of the more than 35,000 Sport Furys produced that year were convertibles.

Since buying the car, the seller reports doing a front power disc-brake conversion, rebuilding the rear drum brakes and lines, installing Monroe shocks with rear load-leveling, dual exhaust, custom retro AM radio, trunk mat and has new front bucket-seat covers on order. Also, a new distributor, idler arm, cap, points and condenser, alternator, hood insulation and weather stripping, and radiator overflow container.

The car also has been professional detailed.

“Rear plastic window is in great condition as well. All glass is intact.

“Car is a true survivor, has minor paint chips and paint peeling on front hood but otherwise in great original condition with the original paint.”

  1. Nice – it sounds like it might have had a 4-barrel carb originally? I like the shade of red – a bit more sedate. More power to Mo-Par!
