1965 Plymouth FuryHello! And welcome to this Auction for a Plymouth Fury III.
First of all, when doing this listing, I realized I am not a photographer!!! Please excuse my normalness. I can provide you with more pictures, however, as in the listing, they may not be perfect.
To the car!.....I will try to describe everything I know about it, the good and the bad. Please ask if any questions and I will do my best to answer them.
This car runs and drives. Not just runs and drives, but is actually road worthy. Just came from a trip from Oklahoma to Texas! I have driven it many hours and I would have no issue taking it across country. With that said, when picking it up, use your own discretion whether you want to drive it or trailer it.
Just passed Texas State Inspection. I am in a county with no emissions. I believe it could be classified as "antique" and you wouldn't have to do state inspection again (at least in Texas). Comes with a clear Texas title and 1 year registration.
Engine and Transmission: Original 318 from what I know. Recent tune up (as distributor cap and wires look new). Carburetor looks newer as well. Has a small drip around the oil pan. Not for sure where, but probably around the oil pan gasket. Power steering has a small leak around the reservoir. Just put Lucas Oil Stop Leak in it and has made a significant difference, but still very slight leak (on 1st bottle. directions say it could use up to 2 bottles before it stops) Small Transmission leak. Transmission shifts just fine and seems to have no problems.
Electrical: Brand New battery with Walmart warranty. All lights (besides dome) are working including the dash. I have not tried to replace the dome bulb. Radio crackles when turned on and tuned. Could be speaker? Unsure as I have not tested anything as far as that is concerned. Horn button - to pass inspection, it needed a working horn, so I used an Autozone horn button and tied it to the steering wheel. Horn works! It is missing springs and some kind of plate connection to make the original horn button engage. Trunk light and glove compartment light work as well.
Exterior: Looks Great!!! minus the rust on the rear quarter panels (shown in pictures). Still turns heads when I drive it because the paint job looks good and shines. Couple dings here and there but nothing major. Body is straight and appears to have been in no accidents through it's life. Everything seems to be original on this car!
Interior: Carpet has some wear under the floor mats (shown in picture). Original front seat has a tear on driver's side on it under the cover and needs to be reupholstered. There is no "dip" or sinking in where the tear is located - all of the sitting positions are comfortable. Ceiling upholstery has a hole on each side (shown in picture) but all of the other material looks magnificent. Dash cracked in the two spots. All of the gauges work. Clock does not work. Speedometer seems to be off slightly ( was going 70mph and odometer showing 75).
Brakes work okay. Seem a little stiff, but it may just be how it was designed. They do stop the car and that is what is important!
Trunk - surface rust in trunk. Full size spare included! Original rubber covering included! For some reason, there is foaming stuff along the edges.
Any more detail needed, please let me know. I will help however I can with shipping arrangements.
