Virtually everyone knows Plymouth as one of Detroit's legendary muscle car divisions. And while it eventually spawned some of America's premier stoplight warriors, the brand itself started as Chrysler's entry level marque to rival Ford and Chevrolet in both sales and popularity. That means many of the storied muscle cars enthusiasts know and love began life like this stylish 1964 Sport Fury. This all-American cruiser HAS to be one of the coolest Plymouths on the planet! And if you're a dedicated MoPar collector who's itching for some early American Muscle that'll be the star of every cruise night in town, it's your hot ticket!
The beneficiary of an 18-month nut-and-bolt restoration, this clean B-Body currently mixes a correct, 383 cubic inch V8 with timeless good looks. Even though the car originally left Newark in PP1 Ruby paint, we can't help but think its current coat of bright White 2-stage is much more stunning. Fit and finish is better than anything that rolled off the factory's now antique assembly lines. And, thanks to 1,262 hours of carefully planned labor, you can rest assured that those stunning aesthetics are built to last!
In the early '60s, Plymouth designers, working directly with the brand's sales team, were being instructed to make their cars look as wide as possible. At the front of this sedan, a bold, "PLYMOUTH" branded grille floats quad headlamps above a thick, wraparound bumper. Behind that grille, a Plymouth 'gun sight' hood ornament leads like-new glass that's framed in original stainless trim. Below that glass, original aluminum trim splits the difference between chrome mirrors, chrome door handles and conservative "SPORT FURY" scripts. And at the back of the car, a polished valance founds clear taillights between a flashy deck emblem, original trunk trim and a second wraparound bumper.
Pop the hood and you'll find a potent, 383 cubic inch V8 that's restored, refinished and ready to roll! The block, which wears a correct 2468130 casting number, is layered in era-correct Turquoise that contrasts nicely against its white backdrop. Under the flat black air cleaner, a correct Carter 4-barrel delivers fuel and oxygen to a cast iron intake. That atomized energy travels to 516 heads that feature hydraulic lifters and hardened valve seats. Spark is sequenced by a MoPar electronic ignition system that was added for the ease of modern convenience. Speed Pro pistons, re-conditioned rods and a Howard cam, which hover between a .010 crankshaft turndown and .040 overbore, perpetuate combustion. And spent gases leave correct exhaust manifolds on their way to dual, 2.5-inch tail pipes.
Under the car you'll find rock-solid floors that serve as the perfect backdrop for a fully restored suspension. At the front of that suspension, a powder-coated K-frame hangs fresh Monroe shocks at the edges of old school manual steering. Opposite that rack, re-arched leaf springs ride under a fresh fuel tank that's fitted with a 5/16-inch sending unit. Behind the motor, a correct A833 4-speed treats gear selection with authority. From there, power travels to an 8.75-inch axle that's equipped with clutch-type posi-traction and 3.55 gears. Stops come courtesy of four massive drums. And in front of those drums, 14-inch steelies turn 215/70 Michelin all-season whitewalls around correct spinner hubcaps.
This Plymouth originally left the factory with a Red interior that perfectly complemented its Ruby paint. But today, thanks to extensive help from Legendary Interiors, it sports miles of blue vinyl that serve as an excellent contrast to its fresh 2-stage. Swing the doors and you'll be greeted by firm vinyl buckets and a stylish console that's centered on a reliable Hurst shifter. Below that console, color-keyed floor mats protect stain-free carpet. At the front of that carpet, a reconditioned, original dash has been painted to match the new bits. At the sides of that dash, pick-free door panels back impressive stainless trim. And in front of the driver, a restored steering wheel twists a full horn ring around a patriotic Plymouth logo.
Before we wrap things up, let's take a quick look at the car's VIN and fender tag.

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
