In 1960, this Plymouth Fury convertible was completed at the St. Louis factory and shipped to the Perdue Plymouth dealership in Sunnyvale, California. In 1995 it was discovered not far from it's original home, in very complete, solid condition, but needing a full restauration. 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 25 CARS were ever fitted with this engine.

MOPAR expert BOB HAYDEN undertook an exacting restauration that was completed in 2006. It is currently FINISHED IN THE ORIGINAL combination of PLUM RED METALIC 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 magnificant Fury is complete with a period correct California back plate, Chrysler Historical Society build sheet and extensive restauration paperwork. In recent years it has won a number of awards at shows, a testament to its overall  quality and presentation. Since completion it has been lovingly maintained and is said to run without fault. 

The current owner has enjoyed the car for many years and is now ready to pass the car to the next keeper.

This is a beauty for the collector who wants a definitive example of the large American convertables of that era with an innovative, powerfull engine, it is hard to imagine a better choise than this 1960 Fury. The new keeper will have e unique and highly sought-after automobile, ready to impress the most discerning audience wherever it is shown.
