The main problems I have had with this car have been the pumps. I ended up replacing almost all of them including, power steering, water, and fuel. The main reason the pumps were shot was because the car sat in a field for ten years. The pumps are fairly cheap to replace except for the power steering pump, which is hard to find.
Another consideration when looking at the Fury III is the engine. If it has a 318c.i. built before 1967, it will be hard to find parts for. Some of the parts are interchangeable with the small block 318, but a lot of them aren't.
In 2001, I replaced the almost non-existent exhaust system on the car. There was a rusted out muffler hanging off the back, so I replaced it with duel exhaust and glass packs. It really gives the car the sound it needs.
The two-barrel carburetor is a problem. I rebuilt it in July 2001. It was a Carter and a real piece of junk. Even after the rebuild, I have had many problems with it. I would recommend replacing it with a four barrel. Wieland still makes the Four-barrel that fits that car.
The body of the car was in good shape; there is hardly any rust. The rear suspension was sagging, but some new shocks can fix that.
I also had to fix the track on the rear windows. It is a two door hard top, and the rear window tracks were out of alignment, it was an easy fix.
The only interior problem was the seats. The vinyl was old and brittle, and needs replaced.
The car is a dream to drive and a real head turner. I have driven this car as a daily driver, and a highway car, and have had minimal complaints either way.
The huge springy seats and the tight suspension make this car very comfortable.
I Actually have no idea of how many origional miles are on the car. I am sure that the odometer has turned over a couple of times.
