61 Plymouth Fury

Recommended Posts

Dusting the shelves again and took some new pics of one I finished a few years ago.

A Johan 61 Plymouth Fury I purchased as a built-up and restored.  Not a glue bomb; it was cleanly built by an adult.  The only issue was discovered after I stripped it; the body had been broken into two or three pieces and repaired.  I just had to putty and smooth out some of the repaired cracks before priming-no biggie.

Very nice!    

(This was the first model I got with my own money (when I was 10 years old)  no paint .but lots of scallop decals!)

Gorgeous!

Nice choice of colors!

I bought one a few years back & built it, & it still stands as one of the most expensive kits that I ever bought!

Probably not one of the prettiest cars or most desirable kits, but definitely rare and still my all time Holy Grail kit!

Very nice work Mike!!

No paint on mine either!

The plastic was so nice, I left it alone!

I think I paid $1.25 or so for mine (57 years ago)....had to collect quite a few pop bottles to pay for it :)

Really nice, one of my favorite cars, I almost had my hands on a 1/1 4 door a couple years back.

You would never know from looking at it now that the body had been broken. Your paint and trim really make this a standout.

Beautiful job!

  You made it prettier than Plymouth could ever do.  Some would say that Virgil Exner was already experiencing dementia when he designed it.

That is a nice build! I have a 65 Chrysler 300 Convertible that I restored several years ago. I noticed a crack developing on the left rear fender, so I may have to strip it, repair and repaint it. I am going to a different color, and go to a replica stock build with it.

Sure wish I could find a clean builder for my own. Thats one of a few I have yet to come up with for myself

That's a very nice looking model of a truly ugly car.
