Like a mechanical typewriter: pushbuttons control Torqueflite 3-speed automatic shifter and cabin heater functions. All lights and gauges work, except for the clock. Original radio lights up and hums. The original owner's manual is also included.
Fury comes equipped with Chrysler's optional Airtemp A/C, which is fully intact, however, it looks like the compressor would need to be rebuilt to make it functional again.
Comfy red-and-white leatherette interior looks older but still holds up well. Check out the raised driver's seat back!
Like most full-size American cars of the era, Fury seats six adults with ease.
Note form-fitting tonneau cover for the top compartment.
A remarkable rear end.
Clean trunk also holds six bodies, if need be. Note the unused WWW spare tire.
Fury's undercarriage has not suffered the usual rust damage. Everything appears to be super solid, even the inner rear quarters, which is almost a miracle on a '61 MoPar.
Wednesday, July 11th was a typically warm and sunny day here on California's coast, our favorite place in the World. We happily hopped into the big Fury and took off on a test drive and photo session.
The car starts up right away and there's no exhaust smoke. Pushing a button to engage "Drive," we swiftly accelerate onto the highway. The aforementioned power disc brakes make us feel safe and secure -- what an improvement over the original design!
Piloting this dinosaur through 21st century traffic is nothing short of sensational. Most people have no clue what they're looking at or who even made a "Plymouth." It's so very different!
Like any Torsion Aire equipped MoPar product, the Fury's handling is crisp and sure-footed. We love it!
Returning home, we wear big smiles. This is vintage convertible motoring at its best; truly a special treat.
Rarely arises the opportunity to acquire one of the most outlandish convertibles ever conceived by the mad men of Detroit. This '61 Fury is a worthy candidate to be a "forever car," to be proudly displayed in the circular driveway of a Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern home, shown at the next "Fall Fling" show in Woodley Park, or parked under a soft flannel cover in the garage of a true MoPar enthusiast, to be enjoyed on sunny summer days.
