Good Buy? 1976 Plymouth Fury Sport

Plymouth offered six different versions of their B-body Fury models, from four-door sedans to four-door wagons, and two two-door hardtop models, including this 1976 Plymouth Fury Sport. The seller has this example posted here on craigslist in Connellsville, Pennsylvania, and the seller is asking $6,000 or best offer. Here is the original listing, and thanks to Rocco B. for sending in this tip!

Plymouth Fury two-door models in 1976 included both a regular Fury and this Sport version. The Fury also came as a four-door sedan but the Sport model did not. Calling a car such as this Sport model with non-operable rear side window louvers a “hardtop” seems like a stretch, but that’s what Plymouth called them. There was also a fancy four-door model called a Fury Salon and also two station wagons, a Fury Suburban and Fury Sport Suburban.

Back to this Fury Sport. This one appears to be wearing the optional road wheels, a good look for this car, in my opinion. The seventh-generation B-body Fury was made from 1975 through 1978 model years and they were similar to the Cordoba, Charger, and Monaco. Plymouth called the louvered rear side windows dual opera windows and it was exclusively for the Fury Sport in the Plymouth lineup. This model was more about comfort than sport, a period brochure says this about the Fury Sport, “Comfort and luxury from the word “go”.

This car is all original, according to the seller, who shows a few areas with rust bubbling under the paint. The underside is shown as well, and for a craigslist ad, they hit a grand slam for photos quantity and quality. There’s a lot of what is hopefully minor rust percolating under the paint, and what looks like a possible former repair. The seats look good both front and rear as does the trunk, which is loaded with spare parts. You can see rust in the left corner of the door sill in this photo, telling me that the next owner has a little work ahead of them.

The engine is Chrysler’s 318-cu.in. OHV V8, which would have been factory-rated at 150 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque when new, and it’s backed up by a three-speed TorqueFlite automatic and column shifter. The seller says that it runs and drives. What’s your offer on this Fury Sport?

    Best deal on this site. Easy to work on and has much better mechanicals than any new Chrysler product. Best to address that bubbling rust, very common on these cars. Probably not many of these left in this condition. I work at a Chrysler Ram Jeep Dodge dealer. The car payments people make is simply stupid. Not uncommon for someone to sign up for 84 months at a $1,000 a month for a new Rubicon. Talk about dumb.

    I like it. A lot more reasonable in price that the GM Colonnades I’ve been seeing lately. The 318 is a pretty good motor that can be modded. Or bolt in a crate 360.

    A lot of fun could be had with this body style. It’s not hard on the eyes and could be outfitted to rival any mopar that came before it.

    Love that car. My father had one and it was fun. Gave it to me when I was 18. Was fast back then. Or it did to an 18 year old…lol

    Totally agree that this car can be a lot of fun. Lots of possibilities. The price is right and parts are reasonably priced as well. I remember seeing these new when I was 12-13yrs old, and they were pretty classy. Still are. Yeah, Chrysler/ Dodge/Plymouth and all the rest had a tough time after the Oil Embargo of 1973, being that the current technology at the time was already developed before fuel economy was even an issue. But you know what, they did a pretty good job with what they had. This car will live on, great article and good luck to the new owner.

    Nice looking blast from the past. Must have shared the same body with the Cordoba & the 4th gen Chargers,

    I believe they both had the Opera windows as well. But they weren’t dual opera windows…… like this,
    The striped interior is a bummer….takes away from the appeal.
    Especially on the inside door panels.

    This car doesn’t have much collector appeal, so I guess you could have
    that mess removed.

    Other than that, pretty nice car. Didn’t see many of these on the highway, although if you weren’t close enough, you could have mistook it for a Cordoba or a Charger.

      Yes, but the 76 Road Runner was a Volare . The 75 Fury had the Road Runner package .
      The 75 and 76 Furys looked so much better with the single round headlamps, the 77 and 78s suffered from that horrid stacked square headlight set up that ruined the looks of many cars back then

    Not the first thing to come to mind when I think of a Fury.

    I love the interiors in these cars. This one is great. 1970’s disco!
    Duct tape body work is a nice throwback. I love that they painted the duct tape.
