My grandpa gave me my 66 fury ll when i was 14 and it was in the worst of worst condition. It didnt run and was a million diff colors. So many years went by and literally one month ago i decided to fix it. I didnt think it was the most beautiful car i had ever seen but being the mopar fanatic my dad raised me to be i dicided to fix it anyway. Now i love it and i havent even done much to it yet. But i have a lot instore for this 66 ll. I love the fact that i can drive this car around and have people say, “I never heard of a Fury” Its one of a kind to me and even though i cant beat those millions of Bel Airs out there yet, i still look better than them. And hopefully soon i want to replace the 318 it has now with a 440 hemi. Cause i love buying gas…haha. Great site … keep up the good work my man……..Carl, aka double down

It now has 100,500 miles on it, and the engine and trans is as strong as ever. The Sport Fury hub caps were piece mealed from several to make 4 good ones to give this old standard people hauler more flair.

Chris wrote this to me: This is the SS Furious. Owned by Chris and Leah Shaffer of Mifflinburg, PA. Bought in 1997 for $1000.00. When I brought it home, it had several inches of mud underneath, and a hood full of hickory nuts from being used as a field car on a farm. Also looked like the Partridge Family bus from several different colors of primer. Original color was Soft Yellow. It came with a 383 and factory 4 spd. It now sports a mild 440, 4 spd OD, and a Dana 60 with 411 gears. Color is now Charcoal Pearl. Despite having full interior and a weight of 4000 lbs., has run a best time of 13.02 at 105 mph as this is a street/strip car. Took the 2001 Street Stick Championship at Beaver Springs Dragway. Kicked lots of Mustang booty. We love them Land Yachts! (note: I love them too!!!!!!…..nice picture, JD.)

Here are a few photo’s of the 3 cars of Sean Kauffman, He´s living in Beatrice, Nebraska. He´s 18 years old and he own´s three fury´s. His first car ever was the white w/ red interior, it’s a 66 Fury III with a 318. He hasn´t driven it much recently as the engine is pretty much shot, after it sat out in a particularly bad blizzard. The dark blue one w/ blue/leopard interior is his most recent addition. It’s a 66 Fury II also with a 318. It’s pretty much a parts car and he´s going to swap engines between the II and III. It’s paint job is kind of a personal touch from one night when he´s got a little too bored. The red one is a ´65 Sport Fury with a 383 with a little under 500 hp, 727 auto w/ac factory tinted windows and an original near mint (black) interior. He´s planning on fixing up the Sport Fury, and selling the Fury II.
This is Charlie Barbuti´s 1966 Plymouth Fury. He own´s the car since about 1980 or so. Just had it repainted in 1995, new seats, new top. He got rear ended last spring, and that really hurted, but his bodyman got it back in shape. Original color was a yellow or creamy beige. He never like it then, but now when he sees them it doesn’t look that bad. The 318 takes him wherever he wants to go.
