Re: [GFS] '57 Fury ebay



This has all been real interesting, regarding the VIN number on this
particular Fury. I don't it's hit reserve yet, but my guess is that he has
about 20 to 22 thousand as a reserve. It's funny talking about the
interest in these cars. I picked up the latest issue of Hemmings. There is
a 58 Fury listed in there as one of the Furys used in the movie
"Christine". Says it has full documentation from the movie studio and
everything. Says it's in pretty good condition. Askint price:  $750,000.
Now, I'm thinking maybe that that price has a type. But, if it does, that
makes the car at maybe, $75,000. That's too damn much to pay for a car
that was actually in the movie. Plus, since they destroyed 22 cars making
that movie, you don't really know if this car was used for close-ups,
far-away shots, or some actual rough driving. I doubt the owner would know
that either. In this day and age, it's a lot easier to buy a Belvedere and
put some Fury nameplates on it, if you want people to think it's a Fury.
You could build or restore a pretty nice old Fury or Belvedere for a
fraction of what the guy's asking.
     Any of y'all aware of this car, or perhaps one of you if the seller.
I just wanted to bring it to everyone's attention, as it seems we're
always looking out for these cars, or at least interested in what someone
has and what they're selling it for. If you get a chance, try and take a
look. I'll keep watching the auction and see what it does. Curious myself,
as to what pans out with the VIN number.   Y'all have a good Sunday

I think John Paxos is on to something.  Just got a response from my
message to the ebay seller regarding his VIN #.  I am assuming that only
the seller get's that email message.  Anyway, the response wanted info
from me:  What are the Fury VIN schemes?  That he was told the Body #
plate was on the left side of firewall (driver's side) near the hood
spring, but can't find it?  The engine number starts with FP31 - no
questions from him on that.  Regarding the VINs I explained what plants
had what and where the '57 Fury originated from (Detroit); told him he was
correct on the location of the body # plate (guess his is missing? or was
he fishing?); and advised it sounded like his FP31 was the proper motor.
Anyway, is he an innocent owner that doesn't know all the facts?  Who's to
know.  In my humble opinion, regardless, I don't think this car is a
genuine Fury.  Sure looks nice though!  The bid was up to $16.100 last
time I looked, and the auction has about 6 or 7 days to go - sure sounds
like our cars are drawing some interest.  And from the ebay "bid history"
don't see any recognizeable GFS "handles" bidding on this car.

Interesting to see how this goes.

Regards,

Jack
