1969 Plymouth Fury Sport 350 8 cylinder from North America
Not bad for a 60s car, guzzles gas, is very sporty-looking
Seats are a bit worn, especially the drivers.
Blew a rod at 450000.
Total engine rebuild at 500000.
All the regular -- oil, spark plugs, etc etc.
I like this car. It's very comfortable for a 60s car and it sounds cool.
The only problem is here in Manitoba, it gets to be around -50 degrees c and sometimes she just wouldn't start (these were in the days when I was still in high school, and the school was open way across town).
No real big problems, although I blew a rod and got a new rebuilt engine, then that one blew something - I can't remember. After that I sold it for a 1990 Jeep.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Well, I sure as heck doubt that your '69 Plymouth Sport Fury had a 350 engine, seeing as how that is a standard Chevrolet size. If the distributor was in back of the block, it was a 318 small block, and if the distributor was on the front passenger side, it was more than likely a 383 big block, although sometimes you find a Sport Fury that had a 440 or even more rarely the 426 hemi. It's too bad you dumped it for a used Jeep, because the Sport Fury is starting to pick up some real value now with the retro interest in '60s and '70 muscle cars, and these look exactly like the very high-dollar Roadrunner and GTX.
