Love everything about it. I'm a sucker for seventies green...the fact that this has a matching interior is just icing on the cake.Awesome grill, awesome condition. I can't really tell...is that rear panel painted a different color?
These just weren't that common out here in flyover country back in the day. But my uncle had one. The washer nozzles were misdirected and would actually shoot washer fluid over the car and onto the car behind it. He used to thus squirt washer fluid all over my dad's hood and windshield when we were following him. You could see his body move as he snickered in his front seat.
This looks exactly like a car that belonged to my old friend Bill Jarmon. Love that shot of the back seat - that's the money shot and really enhances my sense of this car.I would guess this thing has a 383 under the hood. Yes, it's a big (huge) heavy car. But with that 383 this thing can really haul ass.
used to drive in a green(same color green)75 plymouth gran fury. it had a 440 cu with a 750 cfm 4 barral carb. it looks indentical to this car except the front end.
I love 70's mopar barges. They just knew how to build a massive car. I love how the trunk is almost as long as the hood, its hard to tell if the car is coming or going.
How many folks will this thing hold? Looks like four adults could sit in that back seat.
Love these "fuselage" fullsize Mopars of the late 60s and early 70s. Fury, Monaco, Polara, Newport, Imperial, any of them. All such gorgeous beasts.
@anonymous: i have a friend who used to have a '71 Imperial (same body I believe?) that would comfortably seat 8 in the car. Jut to give you some perspective on the sheer size of these beasts.
Badass. Absolutely love the fuselage Chrycorp land yachts.
picture #2 kills me, with the bare trees, big sky, dry pavement. also, i want some pizza."pizza" tag added.
This used to be my car - i Sold it to the current owner late last year (you've also seen my Peugeot 505 here on OPC).. This car only has about 59k original Miles!383 v8 as well. The car was in crazy good shape when I had it, and the current owner has continued to keep it in good shape. I actually miss the darn thing.
The Thunderbolt and Lightfoot Plymouth. http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_38635-Plymouth-Fury-1973.htmlThe movie scene where this car is throwing up turf on the road shoulder is crazy. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=video&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CDoQtwIwAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DrFIgKk-k9N8&ei=kupoUe3VA4X4yAHg6YCIBw&usg=AFQjCNF1_oxSklg0n_NsaKdM-8BeS9fgJQ&bvm=bv.45175338,d.aWc
