Perched near the top of Plymouth’s 1966 model range, just below the VIP, the Fury III was a car that owners could proudly show off to the neighbors. It stands to reason that many were preserved, though few were likely as pampered as this time-capsule 1966 Plymouth Fury III two-door hard top, for sale on Hemmings.com. From the rust-free body to the hermetically sealed seats to the working A/C and clean-enough-to-eat-from 318 V-8, it’s clear that the Fury was a treasured possession, one that reportedly needs nothing except a new owner. The most detail-obsessed would want to fix the described scratches (and perhaps pull the aftermarket under-dash eight-track player), but even in its current state the Plymouth rates as a far better-than-average driver. From the seller’s description:
1966 Plymouth Fury 3 Two Door Hard Top, This car belonged to the same owner for many years. It is an absolutely gorgeous car that has been garaged and well maintained and it shows. The body is straight and solid, the chrome and stainless steel trim are brilliant, the interior is like new and the seats have been covered in clear plastic! Powered by the 318 cubic inch V/6 engine the car runs and drives very well. Under the hood in the engine bay is immaculate, the trunk looks like it has never been used and the underneath of the car is clean and solid. The car has Air Conditioning that blows ice cold! At some point many years ago, the car was resprayed and it still shines brilliantly, although there are a few scratches on the paint. This is a turn key car that is ready to show, drive and enjoy! This car is being sold, because the long term loving eighty four year old owner has passed away. There was recent maintenance performed, such as a battery, oil change and brake repair.
