One-Owner 1970 Plymouth Fury II Is All-Original And Ready to Rumble.. -177

A 1970 Plymouth Fury II that spent its entire life with a DLI professor is now looking for a new home, requiring only minor fixes to become a unique daily driver and head-turning machine.

The people at Dodi Auto (dmonterey on eBay) claim they purchased the car in 2011 from the one and only owner. The vehicle has been sitting ever since, though it received some fixes, including a new timing chain and water pump, fuel lines, and gas tank.

It doesn't mean the Fury is now in tip-top shape. Not at all. The seller explains that it still needs some carburetor work, but it runs and drives beautifully from a mechanical perspective. In other words, if you're looking for a stylish daily driver or a classic companion for occasional weekend drives, this Fury might be up for the job.

The Fury II didn't receive too many refinements in 1970, as the big news this year was the demise of the VIP. Plymouth dropped this version and introduced an optional Brougham package with special split bench seats and other luxurious touches previously available on the VIP. The carmaker tried to simplify its lineup, bringing the VIP goodies to the Sport Fury to make this version more intriguing for potential buyers.

The Fury II offering remained unchanged from the previous year – a more significant change happened in 1971 when Plymouth officially launched a hardtop coupe.

This 1970 Fury II spent its entire life in Monterey, California, and now exhibits the typical rust issues you'd expect on a car this old. On the other hand, rust isn't a critical concern, and the existing damage is easily fixable.

The floors and the trunk (typically the areas invaded by the rust) look very solid, so chances are this Fury doesn't need any patches or massive bodywork – I still believe you should inspect the car in person thoroughly to determine its condition more accurately.

The interior looks fascinating and serves as living proof the car has always received proper maintenance. It comes with factory air conditioning, but given it's been sitting for years, it no longer blows cold air.

As an all-original Fury II that retains its survivor magic thanks to a single owner taking care of it since new, this 1970 example will likely sell quickly. The garage in charge of finding a new home for the car wants $5,000 to let it go, but the Make Offer button is also live for someone who has another offer in mind.

If you want to see everything in person for a more informed decision, you'll find this Fury in Monterey, the same city where the car spent its entire life since rolling off the assembly lines.
