1965 Plymouth Sport Fury Hardtop

In 1965 the Plymouth Fury was split into four lines so it covered right from the low end of the market working its way up to compete with the likes of the Ford Galaxie 500/XL and Chevrolet Impala. Starting with the Fury  I and progressing through Fury II, and Fury III and finally the Sport Fury - each with progressively more features / luxuries.

This year also saw the Fury adding three inches to its wheelbase, bringing it to 119 inches and returning as a full-size model once again.

The Sport Fury came with bucket seats, center console, Deluxe Fury steering wheel, special wheel covers and rear fender skirts as standard.

This Sport Fury also benefits from the following options purchased by the original owner when ordered new: air conditioning ($338), power windows ($102) and power seats ($78), power brakes ($43) and Transaudio AM radio ($59).

The Sport Fury only came with a V8 and base engine was 318 cubic inches. Under the hood of this car there is a 383 cubic inch Commando V8 paired with a Torqueflite automatic transmission. This would have cost an extra $282 on the base price.
