Classic droptop motoring doesn't get much better than this rare
1964 Plymouth Sport Fury. Top-of-the-line trim, V8 Mopar muscle,
and a new power folding top means you're ready to cruise any time
the sun is shining.
The light blue on this convertible is a modern respray that still represents its era nicely. But the design lines of this Plymouth will tell you it's more aggressive than its sunshine hue. The straight-edge styling works well on this very fast Fury. The pointed front fenders with matching pointed grille are an intimidating callout, and the full-length body crease that wraps around the rear is absolutely sporty. As a true American classic, there's plenty of great brightwork like the large wraparound bumpers, and trim line still has its correct red, white, and blue markings. It all feels authentic right down to the proper hubcaps that were unique to the Sport Fury. All these details are especially important, because with only 3,858 droptop examples built, you want to make sure your rare classic presents this nicely.
Beneath the new power folding black roof is a matching interior that continues to show off this Fury's subtle aggression with its deep, dark presentation. It looks particularly nice on the seats that were recently recovered so you can see the intricate pattern perfectly. Even better is the seat foam was replaced, too, for all-day comfort. Bucket seats and a center console interior were part of the premium Sport Fury trim, and definitely change the car's attitude from comfortable daily driver to Saturday night special. Chrysler dashboards of this era were some of the most stylish ever offered, and the bright-framed instruments offer a cool asymmetrical pattern that's more art than science. The overall presentation reminds you exactly why a Mopar always has more appeal.
Standard equipment on the Sport Fury was the pleasantly powerful 318 cubic-inch "Polysphere" V8, which is part of origins that made Hemis so popular with Mopar fans. Its calling card was torque, and the rumble of the dual exhaust lets everyone know you you've got power to spare. The presentation is one that will make you happy to open up the hood whenever you want, thanks to nicely painted components and plenty of signs of good maintenance. This is a true anytime cruiser thanks to features like power steering and the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission.
All the right work has been done on this rare Mopar, so it's turnkey ready to have some fun this weekend. And at this price, it will be out on the road cruising again soon. If you want to be the one behind the wheel, you better hurry up and call today!
