1968 Plymouth FuryThis beautiful mopar has spent its entire life in the Gallatin Valley, always garaged and well cared for by the same family. In fact, every 1000 miles it was taken in for an oil change and lube! (Comes with the maintenance log book going back decades.) Regular waxings kept the paint in great shape, and the interior is in spectacular condition. The original owners were an older couple, so the back seat wasn't used (seatbelts are beneath the cushion), and for many years it was driven only by the widow. Her garage required her to climb in the passenger door, so ironically, the only wear on the front seat is on the right side. Other than a little wear on the carpet there also (see photo), the interior is a time capsule, as is the trunk - complete with original mat, spare, and tools.
The car comes with a 318 V8 that runs like a top, thanks no doubt to the fact that it's always benefited from fresh and clean oil, and it provides plenty of power (220hp). Needs nothing mechanically: great power brakes, power steering, front end, etc. Flies down the highway effortlessly. Good heater, wipers, lights, etc. Perfect glass and door seals, headliner, and door panels - not even a worn-out arm rest.
Outside the car rides on Toyo radials with plenty of tread left. The chrome bumpers have a mirror finish, and the paint has recently been touched up and buffed. There is a dent in the quarter panel on the right rear, which is clean enough of a crease that a trained bodyman (not me) could easily make it look a lot better. For some reason, that quarter panel also rusted at the bottom edge, but thankfully, it's a flat panel below the body line so it could be replaced without much metal fabrication. Other than that, there are two small rust spots as show in the photos.
The gas tank sending unit needs to be replaced for the gauge to work, and the horn worked recently and then stopped, not sure why. Other than that, the car needs nothing to begin enjoying immediately. This would be a great entry-level classic for someone, especially if they want to pile a ton of kids inside. Still, this is a modern car with safety features and the capability to keep up with traffic no problem, or take a trip without being restricted to the right lane.
