Background

Chrysler cars including the Fury were downsized for 1962, another unpopular move,starting in 1962, the Sport Fury was offered as a hardtop coupe or a convertible. On the 1960s television show Leave It to Beaver, Ward Cleaver is seen driving a 1962 Plymouth Fury.

In 1962, the Fury gained yet another body style, with a cleaner, less styled front end, accentuated lines, and a limited edition turbo. According to Plymouth, it could "fly to 60 mph in 8.5 secs. with the optional 305-hp Golden Commando" engine.

History:

Plymouth’s primary sales maker in 1962 was the Fury, it has all the go-fast goodies bigger brakes, special suspension bits, changed Torqueflite shift points, and a host of options that could either be added or, more importantly, deleted at the factory level. There is also one more option that makes this unusually special.The Sport Fury returned with a special interior featuring bucket seats and console, a partially blacked-out grille, and two extra taillights. Later, all Furys received a belt moulding spear that ran unbroken from the front of the car to the rear. The flush C-pillar and slab side drew the eye to the vertical plane, not the horizontal, thus making an already smaller car look stubby. The spear visually lenthened the car.It gained Plymouth's first fully unitized body/chassis. The bolted-on subframe introduced on the 1960 unitized car was eliminated,making it 200 pounds lighter.

Other unique features included self-adjusting brakes, foot pedal operated rear drum parking brakes, lube-sealed 32,000 mile suspension fittings, printed circuit dash wiring, and the "Hamtramck Hummingbird," a new reduction gear starting motor that would come to signal by sound alone the starting of any Chrysler product on any parking lot anywhere.

In 1963, the engines were the 318, 361, 383. A new 5 year or 50,000 mile warranty was introudced, along with a new, very clean grille and rear

Because of recent spam attacks on Mediawiki sites by the tens of thousands of spammers concerned with the length, girth and hardness of our Johnsons, we have had to temporarily disable new registrations and editing until measures can be taken to ensure there is no further vandalism of this site. We apologize for the assholes out there that don't have better things to do, and will find a work around soon. Meanwhile, there are still thousands of MoparWiki pages containing a wealth of information.
