1960 PLYMOUTH FURY CONVERTIBLE




















1960 Plymouth Fury Convertible
Chassis Number: 3307125011
In 1960, this Plymouth Fury convertible was completed at the St. Louis factory and shipped to the Perdue Plymouth dealership in Sunnyvale, California. Little is known about the car’s early history. In 1995 it was discovered not far from its original home, in very complete, solid condition, but needing a full restoration. While decoding the build sheet, it was discovered that this Fury was an extremely rare car that had been ordered with the “SonoRamic Commando” engine with cross-ram induction – only about 25 cars were ever fitted with this engine. Mopar expert Bob Hayden undertook an exacting restoration that was completed in 2006. It is currently finished in the original combination of Plum Red Metallic and Oyster White paint with a complementing red-and-white interior, and is fitted with chrome wire wheels. All the work was done with great attention to detail throughout, giving the bodywork, interior and trim a stunning appearance. The engine was taken to Chrysler specialist George Riehl, who discovered that at some time the engine had been replaced with a Chrysler unit, so a correct Plymouth 383 block was sourced to create the most authentic example possible. This beautiful Fury is complete with a period California black plate, Chrysler Historical Society build sheet and extensive restoration paperwork. In recent years it has won a number of awards at smaller shows, a testament to its overall quality and presentation. Since completion it has been lovingly maintained and is said to run without fault. For the collector who wants a definitive example of the large American convertibles of that era with an innovative, powerful engine, it is hard to imagine a better choice than this 1960 Fury. The new owner will have a unique and highly sought-after automobile, ready to impress the most discerning audience wherever it is shown.
