426 Street Wedge
This is the kind of car that gives Mopars their rare reputation. After all, when was the last time you saw a 1965 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible for sale? Especially one with such a terrific factory color combo and a correct street-eating 426 Street Wedge big block.
A crisp white convertible with a red top is a timeless symbol of premium. So aren\'t you glad someone already invested the money to properly restore the factory colors on this drop top. You already know there is a big block under the hood, and so this Sport Fury has a truly commanding presence to match the motor. Stacked headlight, wide chrome bumpers, and the tri-color sport flags are great factory performance pieces. Plus, this has been upgraded with American Racing Torq Thrust wheels and redline tires for added speedy flair. More than just performance-oriented, this classic is quite complete. The full-length trim, complete badging (including for the big V8,) and even the hood ornament is still in place. And just like any good Mopar, it\'s all quite rare. This was the most expensive of the line when new, and so there were less than 6,730 Sport Fury drop tops built in \'66.
With the flip of a switch, the red roof disappears to reveal a nicely restored red interior. Full-sized comfort with plenty of style was the Fury Sport\'s name of the game in 1965. The full red package of the seats, carpeting, door panels, and dash looks great against the white exterior. The low-back buckets up front provide individual comfort. The back seat is just as nice, and even as a two-door, there\'s plenty of stretch out room for back seat passengers. For the driver, all the essentials are within easy reach – from the switch for the power convertible top, to the gear stick on the premium center console. Everything feels correct and authentic – from the artful steering wheel to the heat/defrost controls. There\'s even a tach on the center console to keep an eye on the beast under the hood.
This Sport Fury truly lives up to its name with its big block power. This came from the factory with the 426 cubic-inch Street Wedge, which makes it a true asphalt king of the \'60s. With something this rare and this powerful, it\'s nice to have an era-correct V8 (Mopar replacement block) still under the hood today. Once people catch a look at all the correct Mopar turquoise on the motor, shining valve covers, and matching air topper w/callouts, everyone who sees it will just assume it has been there since day one. Inhaling deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, this one fires up with the thunder you expect for a serious big block. Plus, the Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission is the ideal partner to be strong enough to handle all this power while also smooth enough for easy cruising.
Big Mopar power in a correct and rare package. This is true classic car distinction, so don\'t let it slip away. Call now!
