1961 Plymouth Fury

I have an older convertible that due to health, age and a distressed wallet, i'm unable to take to the finish line, I have been working on it for about three years now, there's not much that hasn't been rebuilt or replaced, it runs, drives, shifts, and stops, it's tagged/insured/registered, has maybe 45 miles on it since tagged, the motor runs great, the exhaust has a great tone to it, the reground camshaft gives it a little rumble, just a little over stock grind, the motor still has the EOS and oil since fired, a lot of money and time have been invested. At almost 70 and in failing health I just can't get out and work on it like I used to, I really don't have the storage to protect it from the elements and thieves I have pictures of building this car from day one, happy to send what i have and/or take any pictures requested and answer any questions, my cell number is 470-328-2243 and email is tcellguru@aol.com Here are the details.

This car was not originally air conditioned, but i planned on adding it, so entire motors front accessory drive system is from a poly 318 1966 Plymouth factory AC car, so the RV2 compressor and pulley system are already mounted for AC, it will need the inside evaporator/controller, the dryer, and the AC hoses.

All front pulleys (except the PS pump pulley), fan, radiator support, battery tray, motor mount heat shields and various other parts have been powder coated black

I'm only running the center carb right now till fully broken in.I have all he interior pieces, but out of the car, the rear seat has been done in the original pattern.

Body was DA'd and primed, my painter dragged his feet so long I had to put a temporary thin flat black coat of paint on it to preserve it, the firewall was taken to bare metal, primed and painted, there is no rust on the firewall, cowl, quarter panels (upper or lower) around he windows, floor board front and back, No matter what the pictures look like, the car is rust free and arrow straight.

The car has power steering

heater and fan work

windshield wipers work

horns work

Brake lights, parking lights, headlights, and turn signals as well as the 4 way flashers work..

The dash lights and radio don't work, don't know why, i'm to old and to fat to lay under the dash and figure it out

A great deal for someone younger that has the time, ability and a place to work on it and finish it, all of which I am out of. The body has never been hit and is straight and rust free but i think the drivers front fender has been replaced, the inner fenders/firewall/trunk/door jams have been repainted the original Robin's Egg Blue, the top pump sprang a leak and ruined some of the paint in the trunk, i have the paint, primer,DA sanding discs to do the body, this is the original non metallic "baby blue" not a flashy metal flake or candy/pearl, but a seldom seen old school color, even on older cars, a Baby Blue 60's convertible, if that don't get your car juices flowing, just move along cause this ain't for You. A no rust 60's convertible, hard to find them! I guarantee You there won't be another one of these pulling up next to You at a traffic light. Probably some stuff i left out, contact me if interested and we'll talk, I know what it's worth finished, with that said,bid away
