Road Trip Outtakes: Teardrops For A 1966 Plymouth Sport Fury

As we were headed Northeast out of Seattle toward Canada yesterday, I spotted something “of interest” up ahead and pulled in for a closer look…

While it was the Teardrop Trailer that initially caught my eye, the nice-looking Plymouth Sport Fury quickly distracted me from the trailer.

The side moldings and taillight configuration tip this car off as a 1966 model. There were five levels of Fury trim: I (generally sold to fleet buyers), II, III, Sport and VIP. Power at the Sport trim level came from the standard 318 V8 (5.2l), 383 (6.3l) or the new for 1966 440 cid (7.2l) V8 rated at 365hp.

The Fury line was very popular and accounted for about half of Plymouth’s sales in 1965 when this body style was introduced. It was nice to see this one out stretching its legs on a pleasant fall day.
