1966 Plymouth Fury III 2Dr Hardtop Coupe / A True Survivor Class 100% Unrestored Original / 383ci 325hp Commando Engine
FMC specializes in locating unrestored SURVIVOR class vehicles of every kind. The word Survivor is specific to a classic car that is completely original and unrestored in every way. Original interior, original engine and all original paint. A touch up in a small spot or two wont hurt but the fewer of those, the better. The thought of a classic vehicle that has never been changed or modified in any way, since its purchase many decades ago, is incredible! The ideal case would be the classic that is so well taken care of, that it looks like new. Other impressive features about a Survivor class car like this would include any original documentation that came with the car such as a bill of sale, a window sticker, a build sheet or even an original brochure. Additionally, a one-owner history, documented low-mileage or anything that reflects the originality of the car will also add value to the car . It is a piece of history from a time past!! Like this '66 Plymouth Fury.
This Plymouth Fury III is one of the nicest True Unrestored Survivor cars we have ever seen. We can promise you that the camera is NOT what makes this car look so good. The fit & finish of every inch of this Fury III is absolutely Beautiful. That includes the original Chrysler Polar White (WW1) paint and every single piece of chrome and trim. The original chrome bumpers are flawless including the rubber bumperettes front and back. Without question, the overall condition of this car can only be described as MINT!
Like every other inch of this car, the interior is Immaculate. Without exaggeration, the interior is "Like New". The dash pad, steering wheel, headliner and seating are all perfect. All gauges are perfectly clear and all gauges work as does the radio, heat and all lighting (glovebox, trunk, interior & exterior). Even the Premium hubcaps look as though they were never used.
Documentation includes the dealers Certicard, Original Bill of Sale, Original Build Sheet, Original Window Sticker and more.
The 383ci 325hp Commando Engine is 100% original and has just 61500 Actual miles. The Certicard was found in the engine bay right where the dealership, B.Z. Motors of Lewisburg PA had placed it on January 22, 1966 for Mrs Linda Hartman, 53 years ago.... Untouched.
There is just one blemish on this car that we would like to point out. It is a small scratch to the front passenger side area by the headlight where a stone must have chipped it Im sure Mrs Hartman was devastated. Photos show the small ding. Although it is minor, as a true Survivor car, the ding should be left alone to preserve the originality however, once its your car, the quick touch-up would be your choice.
Please come and take a look at this one of a kind piece of unrestored history before some one else does. It wont be around long!
It’s 2020 and I have been invited to judge yet another car show. It is something I love doing as it exposes me to cherry cars and commensuration with like-minded friends. However as mentioned, this is 2020. The global pandemic of COVID-19 has given cancel culture the upper hand on just about every aspect of […]
