Fury Comes of Age
When Plymouth retired the Belvedere name, it was replaced by their Fury model. In 1960 it became the top-o-the-line model with Virgil Exner giving it his special design touches. It almost looked like a space ship floating down the road with Cadillac-like suspension, providing a true luxury ride. It was the last year for the big tail fins, and boy did this car have them.
The 1960 Plymouth Fury Convertible may be one of the rarest early 1960’s cars to exist today. It’s not like they were a limited edition. They made over 7,000 of them. But for whatever reason, there are not very many that have survived. If you find one for sale in today’s collector car market they sell pretty fast.
Luckily, Ellingson Motorcars in Rogers, Minnesota has one for sale in their inventory. This 1960 Plymouth Fury Convertible comes in its original color of Sky Blue with Caribbean Blue front fender inserts. It is a stunning presentation. The gold Fury logo is highlighted nicely. If you look through the photos on their ad page (click here to review the photos) you will notice the Fury medallions on the fins. This was a one-year only treatment because the fins disappeared after 1960.
Ellingson tells us the blue vinyl power convertible top works great, going up and down with the simple push of a button. This Plymouth Fury sits on 4 wide whitewall bias-ply tires with the correct factory wheel covers. The dash is a space-age design way ahead of its time. Notice the transmission push buttons in the dash. This car has the bullet proof 318 ci V8 Mopar engine. With dual exhaust it makes a nice sound for a big car. Click here to review an interesting video full of historical notes and replete with audio of the engine starting up and running.

Million Dollar GTO
During the amazingly successful Mecum Collector Car Auction in Kissimmee, Florida last weekend, a new mark was set for Pontiac GTO’s. This Orbit Orange 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible with rare factory Ram Air IV manifolds was sold for $1.1 million. That is the most money ever paid for a GTO. (Follow this link to review other million-dollar cars sold at the Mecum last week as reported by eClassicAutos.com.) The featured GTO was part of the Chuck Cocoma Judge & Ram Air IV GTO collection. It had a known history and is one of those spectacular muscle cars that comes with a good story behind it. It arrived from the factory equipped with power steering and power front disc brakes, stereo 8-track tape player, console and hood tach. The beautiful GTO had been treated to an extensive body-off-frame restoration, and then won a boat load of awards from top tier concours shows throughout the U.S.

1968 GMC Fire Truck
The Beaver Lake Fire Department may be missing their big tanker. That’s because the 1968 GMC Fire Truck is being offered for sale this week on Cars-On-Line.

It also has power steering, 3 axles with air brakes, air locking differentials and an aluminum water tank with a pump which can be activated from the cab. This very unusual vehicle will be our DEAL of the DAY on Tuesday. The seller is only asking $4,000.
1951 Packard 200
Every once in a while you just get lucky. Could this be your day? Here is a 1951 Packard 200, a classic sedan that we think has the potential for being a “lot of car for the money.” That said, you should really take advantage of the Cars-On-Line Inspection Service so you really know what you are getting into. It is being offered for sale at Cody’s Classic Cars in Wisconsin. They tell us it runs “whisper quiet,” and is believed to have just 37k actual miles. The interior remains original. It will be our DEAL of the DAY on Wednesday. The asking price is $12,900.
1937 Dodge D5
Here is another offering from Cody’s Classic Cars in Wisconsin. They have a 1937 Dodge D5 Sedan that is so reasonably priced we had to show it to you here. Obviously with a price this low you don’t expect a trailer queen. So understand that a pre-purchase inspection would give you a world of information about the car. But here is a survivor which they believe still has just 40k miles. It has the desirable suicide doors. It will be our DEAL of the DAY later next week. Their asking price is $9,900.
1952 Ford Crestline
You might be looking at the sleeper deal of the bunch here. This is a sharp looking 1952 Ford Fairlane Crestline Victoria. The Crestline was the top of the food chain at Ford. It is being offered for sale by Classic Car Deals, an internet broker. They say it has a smooth running “flat head” 239 V8 completely gone through, paired up with a “three on the tree” manual transmission. But the best part is the price. It will be our DEAL of the DAY later next week. The asking price is only $17,900.
Often there are more cars that deserve to be in the DEAL of the DAY than we can schedule for our front page feature. Here is a list of cars that just missed the cut for the DEAL of the DAY this week. Remember, you saw them here first:
