I usually get my parts from the local parts store... unless they don't carry them. Then I go to the wrecking yard. Or find another mopar fanatic. By the way, I need a fuel sending unit for a plymouth fury 3. Can't find one anywhere.

My father bought the 2-door, vinyl top model in '71 and I learned to drive in that car - got my license in '82. I drove the thing into the ground until the car was sold in late '88. Several months later I was driving through a beach town with my girlfriend at the time and SAW my old car on the driveway of a huge mansion. We drove up the driveway just to look at it. I wouldn't be surprised if it's still running somewhere! We took "Das Boot" or "The Party Boat" everywhere, even after the AM radio konked out. Imagine the joy of 8 (Yes, it sat 8 - tightly - but still.) people, stoned out of their minds, singing songs on the way back to campus after a night of wild escapades. The Party Boat was intended to be a "family car" but was born to be a cruising vessel. =C.A. Cozmik=

Hi, I have just got my 1970 Fury III convertible vinned etc, and have just started using it here in New Zealand.
Looking for a couple small items, but otherwise a good clean car with 39000 miles on it. Got a clock sent over from USA and plugged into back of it, and terminal came out, so that's the only thing not working. Air con still works good and it drives nice still.

I have a 1971 Dodge Phoenix sedan here in Adelaide, South Australia. The Plymouth Fury was badged a Dodge over here. This car is a 318, 2 barrel with under dash A/C. Aside from horrendously noisy rear wheel bearings it drives a treat. I bought it for my 5 foot girlfriend as an everyday driver. She's a Mopar nut. Let's face it, every 5 foot girl needs a f#&%ing massive motor car to drive around in! She does look cute in it though... Happy cruising from The Land of Oz!!

Was looking for pictures of the car I had way back in the day, and came across this site. Glad to see people love theirs as much as I did. Was originally Dad's company car, and was passed along to the kids. It survived through three boys, and served as commuter, taxi, pick-up truck (it had an enormous trunk) and whatever else it was called upon to do.
Everyone used to get a kick out of watching mom drive it; she is short so the seat was jacked all the way forward, and you could see her eyes just over the steering wheel. I remember her spinning that big green steering wheel with one finger. Always thought that was pretty cool how someone that small could so easily handle a beast of a car like that.
By the time I got it (I was the third boy), my brothers had put their marks on it, so it was less than pretty, but liked it all the same. We had rebuilt the engine twice by now, and the last time I had a hand in it, "Hey dad, this cam looks like the lobes are wearing down"... Never send your 17 year old to the parts store. Dad was amazed at how much more power it had after the rebuild, but couldn't figure out why it wouldn't idle smoothly. I caught a bit of hell for it, but sometimes it's better to beg for forgiveness later.
Used to have a picture of my buddies and I at a drive in where we were all sitting/laying on the hood, roof, and trunk while eating. Must have been ten of us, just slightly less crowded than when we were inside the car getting there.
Was known as the "Road Boss" by my circle, brother came up with the name and it kind of stuck. Had its problems though, and dad always said that if it weren't the most comfortable car we had ever owned, he'd have rid himself of it years before.
I saw one someone had restored about 6 months ago, it was brown, mine was green, but the same machine. Talked to him a bit and it made me drool a little out of the corner of my mouth. Just before I asked him if he would like to sell it, I remembered what the fuel bills were at 99 cent gasoline, and decided silence was golden.
I now have a Hemi Ram that gets an astonishing 23mpg at cruising speed. I'm thinking RESTO-ROD here. Hmmm, just have to get the wife to buy off on it.
The Road Boss finally committed suicide in 1988. A broken ring made the block unsalvageable and with approx 300,000 miles, was just no longer feasible to repair. The car is missed to this day.

I find it funny that the last comment was talking about exactly what I'm doing to my green 71 Fury III. I got a 5.7 hemi from an 04 Ram and I'm dead middle of a resto-mod right now. Lots of work, but lots of fun. I hope to be done in a few weeks here with the engine portion at least.
I love my Fury. It's the second I owned. The first was rust white. Each time I'd wash it the street would run white with paint. Found the one I have now on eBay for a decent price. Can't wait to go cruising in it again.

I'm looking into trading my 91 Dodge Stealth for a 71 Plymouth Fury 3 and I was wondering if it would be a good idea or not? There's a bunch of pros and cons to both ends, but I'm conflicted.

I look at cars with what space I currently have in my garage. What do I like more than what’s in there, and then buy for that specific space. The other goes. If it parked on a driveway exposed to the elements, it’s disposable. A car is kept for 3-5 years and replaced again. Sun, dust etc are in some cases worse than rain. It sits out there and depreciates. Buy what you like most and compare 2 vehicles' pros and cons.

Why bother to "compare 2 vehicles' pros and cons" if you are just going to "buy what you like most"?
5th Nov 2018, 09:21
I put it to you... how do you choose what you like most if there isn’t a comparison. Or in another way, I like this car the most. Picture walking into a dealership. You see more than one model in a dedicated dealer showroom. You pick the one you like the most. It’s likely you have seen at least 1 or more brands and models in your lifetime if you drive on any public road, even buying a car privately.

Here’s a quick answer. It’s either simply I like this. Or in this case it’s what I like most. The latter simply means there was some form of comparison. I didn’t even write the review and grasped it quickly.

Presumably, if the "cons" outweigh the "pros" on the car you like, then you go on an internet forum and ask complete strangers what you should do...
