YAK Car Pic of the Day

The sign behind this 1966 Plymouth Fury II four-door sedan sums it up pretty well — it’s a used car alright. The Fury II wasn’t the cheapest full-sized Plymouth (that would be the — get ready for it — Fury I), but it wasn’t the most expensive, either. Nor was — we’re picking up a pattern here — the Fury III. In the revolving door of Plymouth series’ names, the Fury III dropped a notch in ’66 with the introduction of the über luxo-barge called the VIP. Of course, in between those two was the Sport Fury. Confused yet?. Here’s Plymouth’s reasoning, from the brochure, for buying a Fury II like the one pictured above: “Fury II is the finest possible combination of beauty, quality, and modest price in the Fury line.” Well then, who in their right might would buy one of the more expensive Fury IIIs or Sport Furys? Not me. No sir. Today’s Pic car was seen the other day on “Salvage Yard Row,” a.k.a. William Street, on Buffalo’s East Side.
