Nice Winter Project: 1969 Plymouth Fury

'69 Sport Fury con.

Sadly, winter is here, but for us that means spending those cold dark evenings out in the garage. If you need something to fill your winter evenings, this project listed here on craigslist and sitting in Fort Madison, Iowa might be worth picking up! It’s a 1969 Plymouth Sport Fury Convertible and is priced at $1,975 and the owner may even trade. This is one of the 1,579 convertibles Plymouth produced in 1969, do you want one?

'69 Sport Fury engine

This Sport Fury III, according to the seller, has the 318 cubic inch V8 that as per the factory produced 230 horsepower with 340 lb-ft of torque. There is an automatic transmission turning a 489 Sure Grip Posi rear-end.  The owner says that this engine runs “good”.

This is the only interior image provided so we don’t know what condition the dash is in. This car came equipped with power steering and power brakes. In 1969, there were 5 color options for the interiors and this one appears to be the Satin Black with bucket seats. It also has the Rally Road Wheels. The power top, which is ripped, does go up and down. There were 24 exterior color options in 1969 and this one, it appears, was resprayed “resale-red”. Red was not an offered color and the color of the engine bay appears to be the offered “Frost Green”. The owner does state there is some rust and the car also needs some electrical work.  You can see the rust behind the wheel wells on the the left side of the car.  These three images are the only images provided so if you would like to see the underside and other images of the rust and/or the dash please contact the owner Kirk.  This is a titled car and with some work won’t it be nice to have ready for Spring 2016?

Motor-on,

Robert

    More pictures would be nice. The 318 with 418 gears would make this a spritely performer with a limited top speed. This could be a good deal, if the price is right.

    I need one of these to pop up in my neck of the literal woods.
    That seems to be a very fair price.

    with the limited amount of pictures, showing serious rust on left quarter panel and left front fender, probably needs both front fenders and quarter panels replaced. Being a unit body car, would have strong reservations on the floor pans. appears the air conditioning compressor is missing, but some of the lines are still in the engine compartment. with what is available per the ad and pictures, would offer about $500 less than asking price. randy ready for a road trip?

    Sure, who gets the goods?

    Uh – 2 questions

    1- is this in an auto shop classroom? Looks like a bunch of desks in the background.

    2- Are the wheels on the car the ones advertised?

    I like the price assuming it isn’t rotting into the ground. Of course if you buy it you have to return it minty green…

    I cannot believe this car is still for sale. It must have a lot of issues. Hurry up and buy it somebody, before 64Bonneville and I get ourselves in trouble with his wife and go buy it.

    Not sure if this car is still available, but I don’t think it is a Sports Fury III. The front grill belongs to a 1969 Fury III Convertible. The 318 LA was standard for this model. Most Sport Fury’s came with 383 as standard equipment and a automatic shift on the console with Bucket seats . The 440 Commando and 4 speed manual was an option. Having said that, there were only about 4,250 1969 Fury III Convertibles made in the US and Canada. Not really sure how many are on the road today. If this is a Fury III Convertible, then the transmission is a 904 torqueflite and the rear end is 8 3/4 but not a sure-grip. All of these are very sturdy mechanically and you can certainly modify and improve on all three components.
