Details

The mid-century Plymouth Sport Fury Convertible is the epitome of 1950s American automobile design and engineering, and this 1959 example properly illustrates that classic era. Restored to concours-quality standards, this convertible was the top-of-the-line luxury automobile produced by Plymouth in the late ‘50s. With relatively low production numbers, as few as approximately 20 remain, making this award-winning Sport Fury one of the best remaining in the market today.

Quality and attention to detail were the top priorities of the owner during the complete frame-off restoration. Every component was inspected, rebuilt and/or restored to the original specifications and colors. A well-appointed car for 1959, this Sport Fury’s options include the rare 361ci engine with dual carburetors mated to the Torque Flight automatic transmission. Other desirable options include power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, an automatic headlight dimmer, a MirrorMatic auto-adjusting rear view mirror, front swivel seats, front disk brakes and dual rear antennas. All of the work was performed by well-known professionals alongside the owner, a collector and restorer of vintage automobiles and wooden boats. Full documentation of the restoration is available.

After restoration, this vehicle has received numerous awards and invitations to concours events, including Hemmings and Greenwich. This Sport Fury Convertible is one of the best examples remaining today and a must have for any serious collector of fine American automobiles. Sold with a registration.
