You're really going to dig this 1963 Plymouth Fury convertible. A rare Mopar classic, it offers a bright blue-on-blue paint job, a strong 426 bog block motor, and an imposing look that practically screams industrial strength performance. With only 654 miles on the build, this droptop has many years of open-air cruising left ahead of it.
In the early '60s, Chrysler was hitting homerun after homerun with a line of just-barely-legal race machines that you could buy off the showroom floor. The rest of the lineup, of course, benefitted from that performance image, and the horsepower wars were on. Even 56 years later, this gorgeous ragtop whispers to everyone that perhaps there's more to it than meets the eye. The recent light blue paint job looks great over those clean and solid Mopar panels, and the basic, straight styling somehow proves that less really is more, because there isn't an incorrect line anywhere on this car. It wasn't treated to a top-of-the-line paint job, so the finish isn't perfect or ready to win any national trophies for depth and luster, but it presents well and is certainly honest enough to go show off at your local cruise-in. The long side spear means you need to get bodywork right or everyone will see it, so a lot of extra time was invested in getting the doors to fit just so. The forward-canted grille makes it look a lot more expensive than it was in 1963, and there's just enough chrome to make the light blue paint really pop. Admit it, you love the way this car looks; I know I do.
A two-tone blue interior was part of the Fury's package, and this excellent restoration carries a new interior that accurately reproduces the factory upholstery. A bench seat that takes on the life of a set of buckets when the big arm rests drops adds to the sporty nature of the droptop, which is what you'd expect in a '60s Mopar, but it has a luxurious feel that shouldn't be overlooked, either. The Plymouth's instrument panel is reminiscent of the early-60s Imperials, and all the original gauges that fill it have been updated with modern Auto Meter units, including a massive central speedometer, auxiliary gauges to the left, and a big column-mounted tachometer that monitors the revs. It's all very nicely done, and you'll find it easy to spend time here, whether in a parade, at a show, our just out for a cruise. A newer white power top with a crystal clear plastic rear window has been recently installed and the trunk is downright gigantic, with a correct plaid mat.
Powering all this American steel is a 426 Wedge RB block, Chrysler's main performance engine until it was supplanted by the 426 HEMI. And this one is so fresh it still has break-in oil inside of it. Topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and aluminum intake, it makes the kind of effortless power that makes you lean on the pedal just a little harder to feel that seemingly endless rush of torque. HEMI Orange paint, Edelbrock finned valve covers and air cleaner, and a huge aluminum radiator keep the engine bay looking slick, and it looks crisply rendered against the light blue inner fenders and firewall. A great-sounding Magnaflow X-pipe dual exhaust system surely sounds better than the original pipes, and the A727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic snaps to attention when you crack the throttle. The undercarriage is remarkably sanitary with lots of new equipment, including a newer gas tank and recent shocks. Pretty 5-spoke wheels with blackwall performance radials add just the right modern flair to this awesome ragtop.
Finished only 654 miles ago, this droptop Mopar beauty hasn't even been broken in yet. With loads of '60s styling and a thumping 426 Wedge block under the hood, this Fury won't last long. Call today!
