This 1967 Plymouth Fury III is the full-size drop-top classic with
V8 power offered for quite an obtainable price.
Stacked headlights, crisp overhangs, and a blocky stance gave the
fourth-generation Plymouth Fury an instant presence. In fact, 1967
seems like the ideal year to own a Fury. Some of the trim of the
previous years was dropped to give this a much more modern and
sleek look. Plus, it debuted some great styling touches, like the
form-hugging front bumper that's notched to accept those
mean-looking headlights. And the rear is just as imposing with the
trunk pointed in the middle that seems to perfectly emphasize
Plymouth's pointed logo. The car was updated later in life to a
tasteful shade of red that retains a nice gloss in the sunshine.
And that's far from the only work put into this car. You can see
some obvious upgrades, like the bright dual exhaust tips and
polished torque thrust-style wheels. But what you might not
immediately know is that this was actually born a coupe! We can
understand exactly why a Fury would be adapted into a drop-top.
Chevrolet's full size convertibles are considered rare from this
year, yet still, they made about four for every one Plymouth. So
it's rarity makes it easy to realize why you'd start with a quality
coupe and make the investment to transform it into a convertible.
The black roof looks good against the red paint, and it fits just
like a factory example. It even powers down with the flip of a
Full-sized comfort was the name of the game in 1967. This all-black
interior looks good with newer seats covers, taut door panels, and
nice carpeting. So family and friends will happily spread out
across the two wide benches. And anyone who is a fan of vintage
features will love to spot factory-style pieces like the AM radio
and air conditioning (they will need servicing before fully
functioning again.) All the controls are grouped in front of the
driver and all factory gauges are nice and clear. So it's easy to
get comfortable behind the wheel of this cruiser.
The 318 cubic-inch V8 has been a mainstay for Mopar power. This is
a fresher block that also shows newer maintenance items. That's why
this is a strong-running package that makes a sweet sound out of
the dual exhaust with Flowmasters. It's backed by a three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes to
emphasize the easy-going road manners of these Plymouths.
This is a well-crafted and well-priced Mopar convertible. So if
love driving a rarely-seen classic, this is an irresistible deal.
