San Francisco Street Sighting - 1965 Plymouth Fury III wagon
Since I showed such an interest in his cars, he agreed to pull the Fury out for me. This was long before I began shooting thoroughly for any kind of feature, but I knew better than to just snap one photo of it and go on my way. And now, two years later, here we are. I figured, why not? It's a classic, and a relatively rare car.
This one is a nicely equipped Fury III which features red vinyl bench seating and an automatic transmission, V8 engine and whitewall tires, although its hubcaps have disappeared. It's anyone's guess which V8 engine this car has; it could be anything from a 318 to a 440. This car appears to have been freshly painted, if the red overspray on the tires is any indication. That may also be why the car has no wheelcovers. The candy apple red looks great with the matching interior. Now all it needs is a set of stock hubcaps and a new exhaust tip to replace the one the owner's flattened by backing out of his driveway.
