A top-of-the-line 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury with the big 426 Street
Wedge V8, four-on-the-floor, and a terrific red-on-red
presentation. This is what Mopar dreams are made of.
The Ruby Red hue of this car is exactly the kind of presentation you want to have on a classic coupe. There's been a solid investment in the color, and it proves it to you the moment the sunshine hits it. The bodywork is in excellent condition, so after you're done attracting attention with the color, you'll be proud that the details hold up under close scrutiny as well. The straight-edge styling works well on this very fast Fury. The pointed fender with matching grille are an intimidating callout, the hardtop roofline is unique, 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. But the boldest element people will like the most is the addition of 15-inch American Racing alloys that fill the wheel wells.
A bucket seat interior was standard for the range-topping Sport Fury, and you will be hard pressed to find another car what looks this good today. The red and white vinyl seating is so crisp, it's like a time machine back to 1964. The center console is Mopar work of art. And the same goes for the factory steering wheel and the big bright four gauge panel. You get all the info you want right in front of you, except the tach, because that's mounted ahead of the Hurst gearshift. This is a car also meant for cruising, so while the AM radio looks great in it's factory location, you'll be happy to know an AM/FM receiver w/remote is hidden in the center console.
But we know you're favorite part of this mean red machine is in the engine bay. The callout hood ornament isn't lying, that's the 426 cubic-inch Street Wedge V8 stuffed in-between the fenders. Big block Mopar power always looks great, but this presentation is exceptional with the polished air grabber and valve covers. A Holley four-barrel carburetor, long tube headers, and an H-pipe dual exhaust add to the rumble and performance. You get complete control over all the sound and the fury of this Sport Fury, thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. While this is an intimidating package, front disc brakes and the grip BF Goodrich T/A radials keeps it all under control.
You know these Mopras are rare, and the 426 was the top dog - so this is already desire on wheels before you even lay eyes on the fantastically done red package. This is the classic that does everything right, and that means it will always be in demand. Call today!!
