Weekend Edition – A Spectacular 1961 Plymouth Fury Sedan on eBay

Many of you may (or may not) know I have a thing for early 60s Chryslers (and Plymouths, and Dodges, and Imperials) because their styling was so out there, non conventional, and wonky. Couple that with their features including push-button automatic transmission selectors, dash mounted rear view mirrors, asymmetrical seating positions, and truly bizarre ornamentation, and it is any wonder Chrysler survived the early 60s intact. Here is a great example of that awkward period in the form of this Spectacular 1961 Plymouth Fury Sedan. What do you think of it?

According to the listing:

I’ve had this car about 5 years. It was originally purchased to complement a 61 plymouth we did a full custom job on. That car was blue and white. The concept being a his and hers combo. The blue and white car ended up with massive modifications. I have too many cars and this one isn’t being driven. I would have zero issue driving this car cross country. We did work over the years to make this car a very reliable car. The car was purchased from an older gentleman that had over 80 cars. He traded this in as partial payment on a new car.

When we got the car, we thought the pink paint was worth buffing and salvaging. The bottom half of the car, all of the white, has been redone. I know, not the smartest decision at the time. As it turns out, the car has 2 slightly different shades of pink on it. I doubt you’ll be able to tell from the picture, but the pink on the passenger front fender is of a slightly different color than the pink on the passenger door. You can see the underhood picture, there is a weird over spray/peel that’s happening, which is isolated to under the hood. We have not touched the motor, it is as it came to us. I’m unaware of any known problems or issues. The car fires right up, has no smoking issues and idles just fine. If you want a car that has had all of the unseen work done, that is an excellent driver and won’t be a money pit, this car is for you. The new front and rear bumpers alone are very costly.

As you can see from pictures, this car is in amazing condition. It’s a real pleasure to drive. We’ve done an extensive amount of work which I will list below. If you have any questions about this car, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m an avid mopar collector with over 20 cars in my collection.

I like the modern wheels and narrow white stripe tires on this car, and they seem to work with the styling. With about four days to go, the top bid so far is $5,800, with an unmet reserve. What do you think it will take to sell this car? See the listing here: [sc:ebay itemid=”281139219499″ linktext=”1961 Plymouth Fury Sedan” ]

    As much as I generally dislike a post sedan, 2 or 4 door, the overall Godzilla VS. Exner styling of the '61 Plymouths makes me want this. Badly.

    That is pretty out there, I like it.
    Oddly enough, the greenhouse reminded me of a Rover P5.

    Hmm, not far off.

      That is eerily close. Good job spotting that.

      The Chrysler wears it with more elegance and panache.

    It's got a nose like an Ocean Drive hotel. Not at all my style, but I can't help but admire how ridiculous it is.

    Didn't meet reserve and ended at 7100.00. Color, 4 doors and no a/c. I would have taken the 7K. If the market rebounds however, this is a 15K car, all day long.

Never before hitting buy it now had I considered a '61 Plymouth. More to come!!!!!
