Hmmm... I have a HP413 block just laying around.

In today's crazy vehicle prices, what is a fair price for this '62 Fury?

Owner says the only rust through is on the trunk lid.

Well, it's missing several moldings, and some are damaged - 1-year-only stuff that's hard to find.
Ad says he has some, but which, & condition ?
Looks like more rust at the back glass, and the lower areas could be pretty ripe.
Not sure what's up with the rear seat, moisture damage below the sun damage ?
Early Bs aren't easy to do, '62s being most difficult.
Only a guess, not enough info, but maybe 4000-4500 if it's more solid than it appears to me...

He said that he had all of the trim but I don't know what shape it's in. He sent me additional pictures, the floors looks solid (I dont' think it will need any patching). The trunk lid had rust through on two places, actually on the top of the trunk where the inner structure was in contact with the trunk skin.

I know it's far from perfect and I probably wouldn't even restore it. I was thinking of "Roadkillin'" it, leave the body pretty much as is and put a fun engine in it and drive it. (maybe some interior work). I just don't want to pay a lot more than going rate.

I'd pay $5800 for it if it was 500 miles from me but, going to get it would be spendy .. I would not restore it neither, cleanup and have fun

So Damm ugly though, otherwise condition is not to bad looking, keep all the trim off & paint it battleship gray.

just a kwik pass on the pic's shows what I'll bet is a lot more rust hiding, like the door skins, cowl and other areas. It's location is near the salt air so i would proceed with extreme caution twocents beer

He sent me more pictures. The rear floorboards look great, still has paint on most of it. The front floors seem pretty good (don't seem to have any spots that would require repair), but I can't tell for sure. The rockers seem solid, still in original paint with rock chips. The firewall/cowl looks good no rust. The base of the rear window looks pretty good (one spot of rust you can see of the right side of the window). The trunk lid is probably the worst part of the car. No pictures of the trunk floor.

It's not perfect by any means and I'm sure if you blew the car apart you'd find more rust but it doesn't seem as bad as it initally looked.

I don't have an account with the picture website so I don't thing that I can post pics.

Sure you can. Got Windows? Fire up snipping tool, hit the win key, type snipp, that'll bring up snipping tool so you can start the program. Select "new", select the area or picture you want to post with the mouse cursor, click file, then the save as dialog, give the pic a name and save in a place you can find it later, I run an icon free desktop so that's where I keep the pics I post, I delete or move them later. Look for the attachment manager when you're composing a post, tell it to look where you saved the pics and select them one by one until you get to four, click done, hit post reply, pics will show up with your response.

The nice thing about snipping tool is you don't have to deal with photos that are too large to post.

Congrats on the pictures! Looks like a pretty solid car. I wonder if they stored fertilizer or some such in the trunk? Better check the trunk floor carefully.

Anyone have any further thoughts on what it's worth?

I don't see $5800 or even close, and I'm a big fan of 62 Plymouths. Have 4 right now.

The car definitely has potential. Floors are a big plus. The cowls on these tend to rust out in areas you can't see from above. Trunk lid rust is pretty typical on these. You'll spend $300 plus for a clean one. I looked for 6 months for the last one I needed. Typically the hood understructure goes too. Trim can be spendy. Some of the Fury stuff is cast, so you can't straighten it like the Savoy/Belvedere stuff.

You can use 63-65 K member with V8 mounts to convert it. Slant 6 K member is unique and of no value. I don't believe the front bench is original. 62 and 63 had that wider back rest section on the passenger side. In the one picture it looks more like a 64 bench.

I think $3200 - 3500 would be a fair price. Not a great price, but fair. My personal observation over the past few years is that project cars are a tough sell. Unless something super rare or big demand (hemi car, 68 Charger, Challenger, etc) stuff like this tends to take a while to sell. Fewer and fewer buyers seem to be seriously interested in tearing into something like this. They tend to be put off by the amount of work as well as the costs involved. Years ago I could turn something like that car in a couple of weeks. Not anymore.

Good information about some of the challenges with a car like this. I was thinking $5.8K was too much as well, I was guessing $4000-ish.

Thanks for the input!
