Comments

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!
 
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!
 
Very, very nice. There's a whole lot of work and devotion represented in those pictures. Yes, the 70 S23 is very cool.., and very popular. However, I particularly appreciate the 67's and 68 that you all have. I, apparently like your Step Dad, have had a love for 68 Furys since I was a kid. All my life, I always wanted one (like my Dad had). When I was 55, I finally broke bad and started spending the money, right before the 67-71 Fury Craze started. I'm glad I did it.., and when I did it. Your 70 is surely a head-turner in the true sense of the cliche -but for most people out there, the 67s and 68 is another kind of head-turner.., the one of when the dog hears a high pitch whistle! I am glad that there are at least a few of us who appreciate the unique 67 and 68 Furys. Good luck to you all. Keep them pretty. -Not Right (I don't know if my Garage Posting is still there, cuz it's been a few years since I posted it but you might want to check it out when you have time. It was listed as "This Old Barn" ((By Not Right)) ).

Now I see to check out your garage, it is very very nice. I like em all but really like the turquoise hardtop and the blue fast-top. I also posted a comment in your garage.
 
UPDATE-

The wagon sold on bringatrailer for $8,000 to an attorney believed to be in New Jersey.
 
Sounds like the NJ attorney got a great deal. I hope that your step-dad is happy with the deal too.

Oh yeah, he got a screamin deal on it. He STOLE it! Everyone says it should of sold for more… and I tend to agree, but as my stepdad says its all what someone is willing to pay. Too bad too, cause its done now. Sad to say but at this point my stepdad doesn’t really care about the price that it sold for, he just wanted it gone so he can bring his new car home. He says he’s got mixed emotions…. Now me on the other hand, thats a different story. I think I’m more upset than my stepdad is. I just hope we will see the car again somewhere sometime, and I also hope that the new owner enjoys the car as it is and don’t screw it up and heavily modify it… and of course joins our forum here.
 
FINAL Update-

Yesterday was the last day of my stepdads 27 ownership of his beige 1973 Custom Suburban wagon. My stepdad received a check from the new caretaker yesterday, and the shipper also came yesterday to pick up the car. I for one am sad to see it go, but it makes me feel good that my stepdad saved it from the crusher and gave it another life for us and now one else to enjoy. I hope to see it someday at Carlisle or another car show, and hope the new caretaker joins our forum here as well. This is all the updates for now…. Sadly next up to sell, and go on bringatrailer is “The Bear”.
