Description for Plymouth Fury 1968

1968 Plymouth Fury III Convertible, 383 4 Barrel, 4 speed manual transmission, 3.23 rear axle (non Sure Grip).
Very seldom seen combination with big block engine and four speed transmission in a full-size Mopar convertible. I have been told that in Galen Govier's White Book it shows 25 Fury III convertibles made with this engine and transmission combination. I don't have anything to verify this but I know its a rare car.
This is a mostly original car that I have owned since 2009. It is located close to Charleston, SC. This car came from Wisconsin and still has an inspection sticker in the windshield from 1973. The car has been repainted in the factory BB1 black a very long time ago. There are some dings and nicks but the car still has a great shine and looks nice for a driver. The interior is the original white bench seat with fold down armrest. The section of vinyl has been replaced on the driver's side of the bottom seat cushion. There is a slight difference in material but you have to look very close to notice. The black convertible top is original as is the Corning glass rear window. The top does have some wear at the seam that goes across the back of the top and at the edge by the rear passenger window. There are no holes in the roof and it does not leak. The power mechanism works great, but the top switch works opposite as marked. The carpet is original and there are loose strands in the left rear footwell and it is faded from the sun. The dash pad is perfect and all the gauges work except the clock. There is an added Sun Tach that is attached to the steering column by a couple of large hose clamps. The tach works fine but it does not light up with the headlights on.
Since 2009 I have replaced the plug wires with Firecore wires, installed new spark plugs, Pertronix ignition and coil, and a 2.5" TTI exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers and turndown tips at the end. It sounds really nice and there is no annoying drone.
Its a 49 year old unrestored Mopar so it does have some things that are needed. It needs a parking brake cable installed. The parking brake pedal works and activates the light on the dash when pushed down but the cable is broken. The AM radio does not work. The passenger vent window needs a helping hand when closing it with the crank on the door. The heater controls operate, but the temperature lever does not operate all that smoothly. The rear passenger window has a loose trim piece/seal so you have to be careful when cranking it up or down. There are some lights that do not work: license plate light, reverse lights, one rear side marker light, and one high beam headlight. The high beams in it are super bright flat-faced GE lights. They are really cool and I like the way they look so I have not replaced them. It may be possible to put a new bulb in the light but I don't really drive it at night anyway. The trim and bumpers are original so they have some wear and dings on them. The original top boot has loose fabric on the underside and there is a tear in the vinyl on the passenger side. It does drip fluids like most old Mopars.
Overall this is a nice, driver-quality 49 year old car. Its in original condition and has not been restored. It is very reliable and will start up fairly easily even after sitting for a month or two. I love the car but I just don't drive it very much any more and my priorities have changed. I can store the car in my garage until pick up is arranged. The car and title will not be transferred until full payment is received. I also live around 20 miles from the port of Charleston, SC.
