Just wondering what this group thinks?

What is the rarest C-Body from 1965 to 1973?

I would guess those with a factory 4-speed.

My guess, without researching a few "1-of-None's" that may or may notexist, would be a 70 Sport Fury 440-6 pak V-code.

Anyone that still has escaped the wrath of the demo derby crowd. mad I almost bought a 69 Polara 500 convertible with a 383 2-bbl and a 3-speed on the tree... eek

Actually 3 proposed by Chrysler marketing, 2 ordered by Chrysler, only ONE built by Hurst, so in my book it's the rarest...

The 70 Sport Fury GT's are perhaps the "sweetest" looking C bodies

I built my own 70 300Hurst ragtop (hence the A12rag) . . . and have seen 3 others that were put together . . . I think that because the 300Hurst cars are still out there, the 70 Sport Fury GT 440-6 pak V code would be rarest ??? Although I have seen a few 4door stick cars, factory. And how about a 70 fury I, 4door, slant six, with 3 on the tree ! Who would have ordered that ?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!

As was mentioned before, ANY C body that escaped the derby wrath !!!

Just my 2cents . . .

Cheers,

Some of the rarest are the 300 Hurst, especially the convertible, 440-6 GT's and the 65 Sport Fury Convertible 426W 4-Speed cars.

The rarest would be the Pilot 65 Fury III 426 Street Hemi car, the Street Hemi was being considered for the C-Body line up in 66, but shelved and only put in the B-Body. The 65 Street Hemi Coronet (B-Body) and 65 Fury (C-Body) supposedly lived around the same time.

Rumor is that a 1970 Hurst prototype will be at the Hurst reunion in Carlisle next week. From what I heard, it is a bit different than the production units.

I am not well educated on the 65's and cant say as to any possible Hemis,
so , other than that , only two examples of rare AND extremely valuable come to mind . The 1970 300 Hurst convertibles , and the 1970 Sport Fury GT 440+6 . A nice example of either one could fetch some serious money from the right collector . If a guy had deep pockets and wanted to collect one example of each of Plymouth's Rapid Transit System from 1970, he's going to need a
Sport Fury GT, and of course the 440+6 would be the one to get. Problem is, just try to find one . They built what , about 61 or so ? but only about ten known to exist on planet earth right now , and about 7 or 8 of those are basket cases..Probably one of the most under valued and under appreciated cars in the world of Mopars.
And while we are on the subject, people, please stop calling Plymouths 'six packs' that's a Dodge only term . We call Plymouths "Six Barrels" .

I owned a 440 6 BBL RoadRunner back in the day from early 1972 to 1997 and another one from 2004-2015 and always called them Six Pack RoadRunners regardless of the name on the hood. If you called it a six pack RoadRunner or a sixpack Bee, everyone knew it was a Plymouth or a Dodge respectively. The term "six pack" is just the common description for any Mopar with three 2's. It was never a debate back then for us old school owner's (and I know you are old school too). My recollection is that we mostly called them all six packs and I feel newer owners/collectors, who weren't hanging out at McD's looking for a street race or racing it at the track on the weekend only know them in the modern era by the name badge on the hood. A sixpack is a sixpack plus it sounds sexier than calling it a sixbbl. It's really not necessary to be politically correct about Plymouths and Dodges. stirthepot
