Here’s a seller who wants his 1964 Plymouth Fury to go to a good home, especially to someone who appreciates vintage Mopars. The asking price is $3,500 for this 1964 Plymouth Fury hardtop.

Note that the car is located in Honolulu, but the advertisement on ClassicCars.com says that transport of the vehicle to either Long Beach, Oakland or Seattle/Tacoma can be arranged for just $1,100.832733_23631610_1964_Plymouth_Fury

“I have thoroughly enjoyed this car and it has been remarkably dependable and does best when it’s driven,” the seller notes. “I am now ready to turn it over to another Mopar person who can take the car to the next level of preservation.”

The seller notes that that car is a “beautiful survivor four-door hardtop,” and that, “This was the last year of the mid-sized Fury four door hardtop and the last mid-sized four-door hardtop Chrysler ever made. The hardtop gives it a very sporty look.”

The car is equipped with factory-installed Airtemp air conditioning, power steering and brakes. The engine is a 318 cid V8, “all original and untouched.”

The seller’s ad notes that oil is clean, the coolant is green and the body is rust free.

“The car runs very well, has lots of power, and is solid and tight,” the ad promises. “I have done a few cosmetic additions to car such as the 1968 side markers, 1969 fender turn signals, and V8 emblems (this is not a Commando version but I liked the sound of it). I also wired the parking lights to remain on with the headlights.

“The car has very little rust. The doors are free of rust, just a little rust in the rear fender wheels. Rust in the trunk has been treated and is no longer active. The floor pan and trunk pan are solid.

“The car always starts right up even after sitting for a couple weeks. It idles smoothly and does not hesitate one bit when the accelerator is pressed. It can cruise easily up to 60 mph plus effortlessly and does not shake or shimmy even at that speed. It truly is a smooth riding solid car. The steering is super light and the brakes sensitive, typical of 1960s automobiles.

“The transmission works fine, however, it does have a small leak and as such I do add fluid regularly. With the proper amount of fluid it shifts perfect.

“The interior is superb. Just a torn driver’s seat. Has the original radio that works but I disconnected it to remove the antennae for the car cover. The headliner has no tears, and the rear seat is near brand new. A stunning two-tone original.

“All accessories work fine. The windshield wipers, lights, horn, etc. the car is registered and current.”

Obviously, this person cares about the car — and its next owner. The ad continues:

“The right-side rear door does not open. The hammer mechanism malfunctions and I have not had time to take it apart. The driver’s door does lock or unlock with the key. Probably best to change the locks. The trunk lock and glove box work fine.

“There is damage to the left taillight housing. The lens is not cracked, just the chrome housing and there is damage to the quarter panel. It is not noticeable as such I have not been inclined to repair it.”

The ad also details rebuilt brakes and lines, new master cylinder, including that while the a/c blows cold, it does need an annual refrigerant boost.

In addition to arranging shipping via Matson Navigation, the owner adds, “I will hold the car for you as long as needed as long as the deposit is paid.”

  1. In 1975 I bought a cream colored 64 Fury 4 door, 318, and PB trans. I owned it for 7 years and really loved that car. I lost it when a brake failure led to a rollover. It was a fantastic car.

  2. William Hodges, you are a very lucky man. I owned one, burgundy, later painted Cadillac firemist gold metalflaked from 1966 to 1973 and have been saddened and disappointed in myself for getting rid of it ever since. Truly hope you enjoy everythiung you do with your’s. I will keep looking for one I can afford. best wishes as I live in memory. 361 cid. though I don’t have long left in this world, I will always dream of it. Congratulations on it! Michael
