I would like to introduce my 1972 Plymouth Fury Gran Coupe. You will already know him from this thread.

NOT MINE - 1972 Plymouth Fury Gran Coupe - $12,500 - El Cerrito, California

About the history I know unfortunately almost nothing only that what was in the craiglist and eBay ad.

According to the US Title it was built in 1971. When he was registered for the first time I do not know. On 20.11.2019 was a transfer date and the title expired on 26.06.2020. Also, on the Title in the field "MO" the letters "AK" and in the field "class" the letters "AX" for what does that stand?

It seems that it was stored in a garage since the end of the 80s. Until when exactly is not known to me. However, it was sold this year to a dealer??? which sold it to Owl Eyes. But it seems that he sold it to Netherland. Where I then found him on ebay and drove with a buddy across Germany to Netherland to look at him. We drove 1600km (994 miles) in one day. The Fury was in such good condition and the test drive was great so I bought it right away. Driving home with him was unfortunately not possible. So the seller let me deliver him with a shipping company. I have him immediately delivered to a workshop. Where now the conversion for the German roads is made.

For this reason, I do not have many pictures of the Fury. But I put a few purely from the ebay ad from Netherland were and which I have made on arrival in Germany.

now a few more data

Engine: 360cui
Transmission: 3 speed automatic
miles: approx. 33.000
horse power: 175
tire: white letters 245/60/R15
special equipment:
-power windows
-power driver seat
-flip headlights
-cruise control
-road wheels
-air conditioning
-tilt steering wheel with rim blow switch (the original horn is unfortunately defective)
-bumper guards
-fender mounted turn signal indicators
-power front disc brakes

what ist not original
Unfortunately, some radio/cassette deck was bolted onto the center tunnel, as well as non-original speakers in the rear.

But now to the essentials. Pictures say more than a thousand words.
A picture from the ad from Craiglist with original license plate. Which I would absolutely like to have. Also a replica would be ok. I am grateful for any help.

I now put my bodyplate in as a picture. Unfortunately, you can not see everything here 100%. If there are ambiguities I have to make another picture when I have the car with me.
Some codes I have already decoded. Can you please check this again. And the missing please complete? with a few characters I am not quite sure. There I have made a "?" [edit: thanks on ayilar and Locu Mob for the help!]

Its right that my Furys Birthday on 20.october 1971 is? Stand the building year also on the body plate?

2 questions at the edge I just have.

which models had the flip headlights and which had the chrome rear bumper with the plastic part? Like mine. Only the gran coupes?

[edit: this pic are a perfect answer for my question - I assume that only the Gran Coupe has the flip headlights and the trim on the rear bumber]

[edit 2: I have now read that the hidden headlights was standard equipmemnt in Gran Coupe and Gran Sedan. And later available as an option by Fury III and Custom Suburban.

Thanks to @ceebuddy and this Thread

Those are the codes I could find, some may not be correct, but most of them are. A broadcast sheet would confirm the codes. Hope this helps.

As Mr.C stated, Plus I remember from being over in Italy back in 90-93, I brought my 86 Pontiac GP over with me while in the Navy, and in order for the car to stay in Italy, I local wanted to buy it, these type of conversion had to be made. Euro DOT / MOT's require additional lighting and marker lights. Like Red FOG lights in the rear due to the foggy weather among other Amber side marker lights. Exhaust regulations too. I think our DOT regs are more strengent in most cases, but older car now don't comply with even Euro DOT / MOT's.. Just my 2 cents.

I have seen your car on Facebook :)
Thanks for your congrats.

I mean the conversion for our german roads. Since all headlights need the European approval marks. And the American yellow front parking lights are unfortunately not allowed in our country.

Greetings

@ayilar and @LocuMob

Thanks to you for completing my VIN decryption.

I will complete the open points above and the two not properly readable digits I will check again on the car.

@Mopars & Matchbox
Thanks for this site for the license plates. I will take a close look and certainly order some.

[edit: @Mopars & Matchbox, california blue plates do not have them on offer :-(
I have to search further]

Greetings

Or M01? I thinks its look like a "0"
Could be, I'm just guessing based on potential codes and what is on the car. I don't know if bumper guards were listed on the fender tag.
