Lot 108

1959 Plymouth Fury Coupe

  • Chassis no. M266126600

Sold for $55,000

230 bhp, 318 cu. in. V-8 engine with a two-barrel carburetor, three-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs and parallel torsion bars, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel power-assisted drum brakes. Wheelbase: 118 in.

  • An extremely low-mileage example; Just 406 miles showing

Original low-mile cars continue to be the most desirable collectibles, and as a result, this Fury has been a true highlight in Mr. Pack’s collection. It was purchased new by a man named Stevens R. Little, who immediately drove the car to his garage, parked it, and closed the door. It was optioned with the standard 318 V-8, a two-barrel carburetor, a Torqueflite transmission, power steering and brakes, a pushbutton AM radio, a windshield washer, a side fender mirror, and power swivel bucket seats.

The Plymouth sat for nearly four decades, being moved very little, until ultimately being purchased in 1995. At that time, Mr. Little provided a notarized Bill of Sale and the original 1960 registration to document the astounding 396 miles on the odometer. Due to basic age and a substandard storage environment, a re-paint was in order. All of the chrome, trim, and brightwork have been polished and brought up to high standards, and the engine bay, passenger space, and trunk compartment each have been subject to a thorough cleaning and detail to showroom quality. Today, the odometer reads 406 miles, which is a result of a careful display and maintenance schedule.


Please note that this car is a Fury Coupe, not a Sport Fury, as described in the printed catalogue. As such, it is equipped with a 230-horsepower V-8 engine with a two-barrel carburetor.
