    Hello everyone, I just thought I would show some pictures of my 71 Fury GT that I bought last year. First, I will quickly introduce myself - my name is Rob Thomas and I live in the Las Vegas area. A couple of years ago I bought a 65 fury convertible and as I did research on the Furys, I slowly gravitated toward the Fuselage style Furys. For some reason, I am crazy about these. I seem to always be on the hunt for them and it is driving my wife crazy. When I brought my GT home my wife said, "It looks like an ugly 70's car from a bad 70's movie." Most all of you are familiar with this car as I have seen pictures of it pop up from time to time. The color is GY9 - which I have mixed feelings about - but it is a GT. Here are the most recent pictures of it: IMG_2734.JPG IMG_2881.JPG IMG_2887.JPG IMG_2897.JPG IMG-2900.jpg IMG-2899.jpg IMG-2894.jpg IMG-2885.jpg IMG-2884.jpg IMG-2890.jpg

    Having the original wheels on the car really makes the car look that much more special.

    saw it a few times at MATS.

    Please take good care of it.

    I am a stranger I would leave the original paint as is. It is original only once.

    It seems like quite a few GT's are popping up on the board here lately, first it was Ben's '71 promo car then it was Charles' green '70 and now it's this one. I love it, I'm in GT Heaven over here! Keep em comin fellas

    and....How did you find out it was for sale or did you have to put your name on a list? most of these unusual cars are known to only a few select, am I correct?

    I like the color, it’s different and who knows it could be the only’71 GT in that color.
