    What is a Sport Fury III, or a Sports Fury?

    I went online to look for an old Plymouth Fury to check on emblems, and one of the first images to come up is from a big classic car dealer advertising a 1959 Plymouth "SPORTS Fury". It must be a common affliction. MY pet peeve is people who call the late "Fury Sport" model, the one from the...

    What is a Sport Fury III, or a Sports Fury?

    "Radio delete" and "posi" are not brand names or trademarks. "Posi" is used generically in the same way that all tissues have become Kleenex and all gelatin desserts have become Jell-O. IMO 'Cruise control' is another term that has become generic.

    1971 Plymouth Sport Fury GT strobe stripes

    I'll give Phoenix credit for trying, but really their kit was a mile off of looking like the originals. Nobody who knew what a '71 Fury GT looked like would have been fooled for two seconds. It was very different than the 70 by the way. Trivia - the original stripe kit used at the factory was...

    Hope This Doesn’t Get Parted Out

    He can preserve it as is if he likes but please don't be living in my neighborhood with such an eyesore. This is really just sad, like 'Wasn't grandma cute in her hobo Halloween costume?' and thinking it's OK to bury her in it. Nobody really wants to see that.

    I have a chance to buy a 71 Sport fury , it’s in rough shape.

    He wanted eight grand for that rusted clunker? I think you'd have been crazy to buy it at any price, fixing a rusted unibody is just huge. You would CRY if I told you what all I sold two years ago - a 1970 Sport Fury nearly rust free with a drag strip car driveline, new new new parts galore...

    I have a chance to buy a 71 Sport fury , it’s in rough shape.

    I myself have no pictures of it up close but it's maybe 7/8 to possibly an inch wide, each section is maybe a foot long? - there are three per front fender, and it's inlaid with black plastic that has little ridges or grooves that run crossways (not lengthwise). The front piece has the beloved...

    Things I'm doing to my '69 300...

    Now THAT is a very sharp looking car. A real head turner. Bet you can't park it anyplace without people asking you about it. Cars like this will be the Auburns and Duesenbergs of the future. I think Pontiac had most of the best looking cars of the 60's and very early 70's but this matches any of...

    1970 Fury GT found in Amarillo, TX.

    I've known Bill for almost 20 years. He's got to be the foremost expert on these cars, especially the 70. He owns several including of the the factory 440 6-pack models which is nearing a complete rotisserie restoration.
