August 17, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

July 15, 2021 Update – After a two-month hiatus, the seller of this ’64 Plymouth Fury we first featured in April continues to have it for sale. In their latest listing, they reduced their asking price by one hundred dollars down to $15,800.

As a car enthusiast, it’s sad coming across an unfinished project car due to the owner’s untimely death.  What might be sadder is someone trying to profit from it.  That’s the vibe we get from the pricing on this unrestored 1964 Plymouth Fury wagon featuring its original paint once again listed on Craigslist in July 2021 in Newville, Pennsylvania (Harrisburg) and now offered at $15,800 (down from $15,900 originally). Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their Fury Find priced somewhat optimistically between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $11,200 and its #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $18,300.  Similarly, the  Collector Car Market Review Online Tool provides a much different assessment as in this case the asking price falls very optimistically between this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $11,300 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $18,700.

Produced only three model years, 1964 marked the final one for Plymouth’s third-generation Fury.  When launched in 1962, the redesigned Fury emerged as a downsized model riding on Chrysler’s new B-body unibody platform. The third-generation Fury range included a Fury 4-door Station Wagon, the wagon equivalent of the Fury having previously been marketed as the Plymouth Sport Suburban.

Here’s a TV commercial for a similar ’63 Plymouth Station Wagon currently featured on the Cars & Stripes YouTube Channel:

The seller appears to be looking for a flip and indicates this car will be at Spring Carlisle in their Car Corral later this week. If this car is still available by Sunday there, we believe an offer under ten large will likely make you the next caretaker to resume where the deceased previous owner left off.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1964 Plymouth Fury station wagon. 361 big block, automatic. I purchased this from the widow of someone who was in the middle of restoring the car before he passed away. The car runs and drives but needs interior and bodywork to be complete. The car still wears its original paint so there are no surprises. I have photos of all the minor rust spots. If not sold before, it will be at Spring Carlisle in spaces G55-57.
If you are viewing this item, it is still available.

    Nice solid base. I have one with a 383 and a 4spd, same color. Great car.
