For Sale: 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1964 Plymouth Sport Fury

There once was a time when the Chrysler Corporation was number two in sales, ahead of the formerly #1 Ford brand. However, a number of business miscalculations have forced Chrysler to be on the brink of disaster numerous times in its history. One of Chrysler's biggest boners was during the dawn of the muscle car era. But with some clever platform reshuffling for 1965 and the introduction of the new full-size C-body, the Chrysler Corporation was back in the saddle, and with the addition of the Commando 426 for the Plymouth Fury, Chrysler had its first "proper" full-size muscle car.

For consignment, the 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury in 2 door hardtop in Max Wedge tribute form. This car has undergone some mods for power upgrades and the ability to plow through copious amounts of high test gasoline. Our example is in very nice condition, has a consignor stated 500ci V8, (stamped as a 1966-72 440ci V8), dual quad carbs and ported heads. Lets just say it lives up to its namesake and definitely has a temper.

Exterior
Borrowing from the mid the 60's mantras, upfront we see horizontal dual headlights, a snappy chromed egg crate grille, near perfect badging, and a solid shiny bumper below with inset signal lenses in orange. As we move rearward along the laser straight side panels, with gaps well minded, we can follow the stainless steel trim spear which runs the length from stem to stern. All this straight steel is bathed in red paint and trimmings throughout are looking great but does show some buffer burns on a few high edges and chipping of the paint on the rocker panels. A dual scooped hood allows more air to enter the engine which needs a lot of it.On the back, the dual square tail lights and backup lights are framed below by a shiny rear bumper. Note the triangulated B pillar as it frames the rear glass and back window and adds to the sexiness of the side profile. 14 inch Keystone wheels are on all 4 corners.

Interior
Entering, I've got tuxedo black in my future for the test drive starting with the door panels which have an upper panel of buttoned vinyl framed by a horizontal thin trimming of chrome. A few more ribbed horizontal bands stretch across the panels and frame more black vinyl, the armrests and actuator and window crank. Inside seating is dual low back buckets with black shiny bolsters and tuck and roll inserts and some buttons for the top panels. Some chrome is on the edging for the tubs. The rear bench, although solid, gives the appearance of 2 more buckets with a central smooth seat interrupting these "faux" buckets. Up front, the dash has a padded black top, and an angled inward panel of aluminum which houses a lineup of circular gauges in front of the driver. Next to this panel is a vertical lineup of push buttons for the climate controls. In the center is an aftermarket radio with AM/FM and Cassette capabilities. Mounted underneath the dash are more gauges, (a tachometer, volts, water temp, and oil pressure gauges along with a shift light). These are just above a Cheetah SCS shifter on the hump. Black carpeting covers the floors and above is a black headliner.

Drivetrain
A lift of the hood and we are greeted by a whole new world with a consigner stated 500ci V8. It has Eagle rods and an Eagle crank. Also original SRS 11.0:1 P{pistons are in and a roller cam and rockers have been added. The mill has ported heads, a dual 4 barrel pair of Edelbrock carbs, a 3 speed Torqueflite A727 Transmission and an 8.75 Sure Grip rear with Moser axles. There are dual exhaust and a Turbo muffler setup for the blow. NOTED* the block was cracked and repaired but it weeps coolant from the welded repair area.

Undercarriage
Slight spotty surface rust and undercoating chip off are noted throughout. Seen on the floor pans, rockers, various undercarriage suspension and frame parts but all remains structurally sound. Front independent torsion bar suspension is seen and on back leaf sprung suspension with Caltrac bars is working like it should. Drum brakes are all around.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter and smooth runner when experiencing our test track. A slight miss in the engine was noted, but with smooth transmission shifts and nice ride and bias free braking on a panic stop. All glass rolled down, a nice experience and a classic mid 1960's cruiser with a punch if needed.

This '64 Plymouth is extremely cool and has been cared for and upgraded with replacement parts when needed, (see the binder with all the sorted and well documented details). With its nice supersized sized V8, tailored interior and dramatic styling, it represents the pinnacle of American styling and manufacturing dominance. If you're looking for a top-notch classic that'll draw a crowd wherever it goes, your search is over! Meet this hopped up 1964 Plymouth Fury.
