Barn Buddies: Plymouth Package

furies

This listing, here on eBay, for a package deal consisting of a 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury and a ’59 Belvedere is an interesting opportunity for anyone who’s a fan of these Mopar coupes. The Belvedere is essentially offered as a parts car to assemble a complete Sport Fury, which was the seller’s plans before too many other projects got in the way. Neither car has a title, so there will be some legwork involved with getting them on the road legally; however, given the rust repair needed in the Fury, you’ll have time to get that squared away. The seller inspires confidence that he knows these cars and had plans to restore the Fury to road going shape, especially given the inclusion of replacement parts like new fender eyebrows and a host of junkyard bits that should serve as suitable components to replace cracked windshields and busted bumpers. For just under $6K, you can take these 2 projects home – if you’re the sole bidder. Would any of you throw a bid up on these old girls, or leave them in the barn?

    Almost makes me cry to see this ( the Sport Fury) in it’s dilapidated condition. I think this was one of the most beautiful cars Chrysler made. 1959 was the last year for the Sport Fury and a frame. ( unit-body in 1960) Not sure about the 440 ( or the 10 million miles) but I doubt there’s many around. Be a big job, but totally worth it when done. Hemmings( my go to source) has only 1 ’59 Fury, ( not even a Sport Fury) and they want $32g’s for it.

        I would wash em up, gas em up n throw on some redline tires n cragar mags and drive em like a fiend.

    The ’57-’59 Plymouths were some of the best looking cars of their generation. Their major problem was rust and horrible build quality. Whoever buys these will need to store them inside and rust proof all body repairs.

    Why would a 1959 anything need a title? I think PA started titling in 1976. Most states started titling in the 70’s. Older cars are generally exempt.

      Pennsylvania has been a title state as long as I can remember, 1950’s and before that. Christine was a 58 Fury.

        yes, it just made me think of Christine. But I swear in the the movie John Carpenter substituted a 57 under Creative License, lol

        Actually, Christine was a 1958 Plymouth Belvedere. The Fury was the sport model and only was offered in a beige color with a gold anodized aluminum accent strip. The easiest way to tell a 57 from a 58 is the headlights. The 58 had four headlights and the 57 had two dual beam headlights and two turn signals.

    Take a look at the cover of the new (October) issue of Hemmings Classic Car magazine see how this baby would look when she’s all dolled up. Of course, it would take a lot to get her there, but what a great lookin’ ride!
    Of course, one option would be to swap the Sport Fury exterior trim over to the Belvedere body (if it’s a good and solid) along with the 440 engine. Sourcing an original 361 and all the original Sport Fury interior trim and front seats would be daunting at best.

    I have one, a ’59 Fury. My mother bought it as a 4 year old used car in ’63. I plan on restoring it and my brother and I have already started collecting parts. The big motor for ’59 was the 361, which grew later to be the 383 (a great motor, just ask Roadrunner owners).

    And ’65 Belvedere II owners!

    In my car-fantasy world, my first pick would be a ’59 Sport Fury. At age 18 my dad won a Blue and White ’59 Sport Fury in a contest sponsored by Chrysler; simply write an advertising jingle and if we like yours the best, you win a car! “Plymouth be nimble, Plymouth be quick, Plymouth’s lines are sleek and slick….” Dad does not remember the rest.

    I’ve always thought that all of the MoPar cars went over to unibodies with the 1957 models (the first year of Chrysler Corp’s “Forward Look” designs, instead of the ’60s.
    As for automobile titles, New York State held off on issuing them until the 1973 models hit the market.
