  • This is a list of my step-father's cars. My step-dad "specializes" in the 1967, 1968, 1970, and 1973 Plymouth Fury. He got into the Furies because his father had a "left-over" '67 Fury II. He opened the '68 Fury brochure and saw the '68 Sport Fury Fast-top and said "I want that". He has, as follows starting with 1967.....

    1967 (Fury II)- 6 passenger wagon. Currently a 318 2bbl with 90% original paint, plan is to put a 440 in and put a trailer towing package on someday.

    Very cool, my family also had Plymouth fury’s growing up. We had a 61 wagon, a 63 sedan, 68 fury three hardtop, 77 Fury salon.
    I’ve also owned a 61 wagon, 63 hardtop, 68 sport fury convertible.
    They are terrific cars. I think my favorite is the 318 engine in the 1968. Either way you have a very nice collection!

    Grew up in the way way back seat of a 65 Fury II wagon, Mom traded in her special order 56 Belvedere 2dr in 64 for the 65 wagon. Dad got stationed in Germany so we had the 1st NEW car on base!
