If you're looking for a 60 4D Fury hardtop, this THE car. Probably worth every penny. Whole car looks incredibly clean and unmolested. Only work done was a single repaint of the white parts. Only 40k miles, no rust. Also has the giant rear window, the toilet seat trunklid, rear wheel skirts, and that funky squared off steering wheel.

It would be nice to see the engine bay and trunk compartment. Since it has won some prestigious awards, they both may be as nice as the rest of the car. Unusual color too!

Tinted glass and dual outside mirrors too. Nice looking 4 door. The original purchaser should have got the Golden or Sonoramic option too!

Beautiful car! I love the 1960 4dr hardtops,mine doesn’t have the “toilet seat”. The only thing I’d change about the car is to remove the fender skirts. I’ve never understood the appeal of those to people. The wheel openings on these cars are very sculptural and integral to the design,putting on fender skirts weighs the car down visually giving them a slab sided appearance. Just say “no” to fender skirts and continental kits. Lol.

Normally I'd agree (especially with continental kits, because a giant tire shelf really kills the look of the car), but I can go both ways on the 60 Fury when it comes to the wheel skirts. I think they look great with that huge chrome trim piece on the rear quarters and they really streamline the look. At the same time though, they look great without it it too, and I especially like how the rear wheel opening mirrors the shape of the canopy and roofline on the 2-door hardtops.

I don’t follow original stuff that closely, but if the entire car has been repainted, how is that original?

I so agrre with that comment. But what i have come to understand are used car people or flippers or uneducated peoples think because it was sprayed or painted or touched up (not fully restored) done in the 80s or??? its still original. probably because it was never taken apart but painted together with paint lines in the jambs or overspray blown in the jambs

Where do you read the ENTIRE car has been repainted? I read "white only". And where do you read original paint?

Heck, that car is almost 60, S-I-X-T-Y years old and survived the idiotic past when these cars were considered dirt (for 4 doors up to this day in the US). It is a wonder no a$$hole has parted it out yet, or "resto-modded" it with a new junk engine and a tasteless interior. It is as original as it gets after 60 years.

I'm SO in love with it. Love the body style, skirts and the pastel green interior, also the paint sheme with a light colored body and dark roof (it is mostly the other way around) which makes it look even sleeker.

I wish I had the money. In my book it is a $200 000+ car, considering the prices other classics get, that are not nearly as rare, good looking or well engineered. It is just a GREAT car and unique time capsule. The 4 door Hardtop is THE 50s body style.

I wouldn't trade it for a fleet of bright red, wire wheeled, clinical-clean (dead) perfect restored forwardlook convertibles.

White only, which is 90% of the car. I thought to maintain original clubs had all types of rules to that definition. I thought it had to be 80% original paint or similar, but I don't do shows so who knows. I get your passion for the car, I think it will be a tough sell at that price. Four door cars are a struggle. It's going to take the exact right buyer to move that car. If the car was all original, maybe. The car isn't that rare. You might not trade it for those red perfect convertibles, but if you did, you could sell it and buy this one 6-10x over. It's just how the market is. Not that different from wagons, although some wagons do get up there in price.

Not rare? IIRC only around 9000 were produced 59 years ago and i got the impression I watched about 8999 getting parted out and cut appart in the past 40 years I'm into FL's.
No, I wouldn't trade it for those wire wheeled "I-wanna-be-seen car-SHOW-convertibles" and I couldn't buy it 10x over since 10 of those cars simply do not exist anymore in that condition, or even close to that and that one happens to have my favorite and rare interior color.
Show me another 60 Fury 4 door hardtop for sale in that condition.

I always wondered if the flat or the flared skirts are the OE Plymouth skirts. I got the flared ones, which I like better. This beauty got the flat ones, like Joes BTB.

A site-search gave me the answer:

Rare and valuable are different things. I have 2 60 four door plymouth diesel taxi's. Probably the only 2 around, they aren't worth much of anything.

Yes? I know that. Yet, a 60 Fury 4 door hardtop in any condition is rare, let alone in pristine condition like that one.
There are things you can't buy. If something is gone, no money on earth can buy it.
I'm a car guy with passion, not a car-show or car-investor type of person.
I truly love these cars and I never cared what they are worth and if they are rare, if I like something, then I like something.

I said 'original,' not 'all original'  

Nah but I get what your saying. In my book, getting repainted isn't that big a deal in terms of originality if it was done well in factory colors. The fact that the car as a whole is in such good shape, its complete, has such low miles, and hasn't been altered is original enough for me to call it original.

You can be a car guy with a passion and a car investor as well. Few people put as many miles on forward look cars on a yearly basis than my family. I love the 4 door hard top, if it was an imperial, in a color other than the green, I'd have it. Hopefully whoever ends up with the car, truly enjoys it.

There has been a lot of opinions regarding "original" and how one perceives it posted above. Technically, original is exactly the way it came from the factory with no changes of any kind including a repaint but one has to allow for oil changes! Right? OK, The AACA has very strict rules for a car to meet their highest award and emphasizes originality through and through including paint. Also headlights, tires, wheels, etc, etc, etc. They are becoming a little more lenient on some things that are mainly safety related.

Well, I don't know about you guys and gals, but I would rather have my car nice and shiny, maybe even with radial tires, and brighter headlights, etc. and have it stand out in the crowd as being a super eye catcher than one with faded out original paint, possible and probable rust, and lotsa stone pecks. Now if your 1946 Dodge was mothballed since birth, you could earn the best there is for an "original" car but it is highly unlikely this would be the case. Soooo - my preference is a second place beauty over a first place whatever you want to call it - "original". Just my opinion and that is why I abandoned the AACA.
