This 1968 Plymouth Fury III convertible is the kind of classic that
we're all on the lookout for. With V8 power, cool colors, and
Mopar's historically low production numbers - less than 7k
convertibles produced in '68 - this is a terrific way to get an
affordable and distinct drop-top.
Stacked headlights, crisp overhangs, and a blocky stance gave the
fourth-generation Plymouth Fury an instant presence. The 1968 car
was the final year of the generation, and so it received some of
the nicest details from its evolution. You see it in the
form-hugging front bumper that's notched to accept those
mean-looking headlights. And everything from the blocky stance to
the mag-style stock wheels covers made this one look like it wanted
to own the road. We also like a few subtle upgrades like the dual
aerials and dual exhaust tips. This is coming off of long-term
care. So while you may want to use the value price to update
details, like the factory-correct beige paint, you'll certainly be
impressed with the overall presentation. The black roof has a taut
fit, the rear window is clear, the badging is complete, and we love
how the red insert in the side trim gives you a preview of the
interior. There's a true cruiser style, right down to the whitewall
tires and rear fender skirts.
As we mentioned before, the exterior trim is a great preview of the
interior. In fact, there's even a roadster-style convertible
tonneau in matching red, and so this full-sized Fury looks like a
well-coordinated personal cruiser. There's even a fold-down center
armrest for true individual driver comfort. But the overall
impression of this one is a car that you'll easily invite family
and friends along for the ride. So you'll likely take full
advantage of the wide bench seats and plenty of space to spread
out. Just like the exterior, you'll find the right upgrades like an
AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input to enhance your driving music, and
the air conditioning system is running R134a (but it will need
servicing to blow cold again.) Plus, the full interior lighting
package not only greets you when the door opens, but also they have
been upgraded to be brighter and more useful.
The 318 cubic-inch V8 has been a mainstay for Mopar power. We like
the classic air grabber, but you can also tell there have been some
nice added investments. This includes a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, Mopar finned valve covers, and a newer dual exhaust.
It's backed by a three-speed automatic transmission, power
steering, and power brakes to emphasize the easy-going road manners
of these Plymouths.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, maintenance
records, and service manuals. A well-coordinated and affordable
classic convertible is always an appealing idea. So when it's also
a V8 Mopar, you know it's an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
