    Welcome from Indiana. Nice 64, been around these all my life and didn’t realize that they made a Fury wagon. I thought all the wagons were Belvederes. 318 auto I’d guess? Wouldn’t mind a few pictures of that F-100.

    Yessir. 318 poly with the 727 push-button. It's funny that many of the classic car valuators don't list the 318 as an option for the Fury wagon. But, mine's living proof that it exists!

    I'd be happy to share a few photos of the F-100.

            I would bet the majority of 64 Furys were 318s.

              Man, that's awesome. I see you live in New London. Interestingly the place my family moved from in 87 was Minnesota.

              Yes, my family enjoys the Fury. Even the Dog enjoys it.

                  So, since it's been brought up, I figured I might as well share a few photos of my F-100.
                  This truck belonged to my Grandfather. He didn't buy this one "new" but got it when it was a few years old in 71. As long as I have been around my Grandfather had this pickup. They used it for pulling their 69 Aristocrat Lo-Liner camping trailer for years. I always had a thing for this truck and about 6 years ago I put a bug in Grandpa's ear saying "if you ever decide you don't need the pick-up anymore, just let me know. I'd like to buy it from you"
                  When he turned 93 he decided he didn't really need it anymore and called me up to tell me he would like to sell it to me.

                  Long story short I have, for the last 6 years or so, been the current caretaker of both Grandpa's car and his truck.
                  Oh, and his camping trailer too.

                  Grandpa and the truck in 1971:

                  Day I brought it home:

                  After a good bath and removing the camper shell to make it the boy's fort:

                  And as I mentioned, I also own the camping trailer.

                        Thank you. I think he was. He passed away last year. He had always said he wanted to live to 100. He almost made it.

                        Back when I brought the truck home I ran it out of gas between Grandpa and Grandma's house and mine. My Uncle and Aunt were visiting Grandma and Grandpa at the time, so my Uncle and Grandpa grabbed a Jerry can and came to my rescue. They followed me home just to be on the safe side. My Grandfather was starting to forget things. It's something we had all been expecting, but it was still hard for us to comprehend sometimes. At that point I had had the FURY wagon for 18 years and although I drive it constantly when the weather is good he seemed to have forgotten. When my son Nathaniel opened the garage door and he saw it sitting in there he said "You still have the Plymouth!" he was like a kid at Christmas! It was so awesome to experience it. We talked for a half an hour about it, all of the memories we had with the car. I told him it meant so much more to me than mere transportation. He smiled and said "And now you have the truck too"

                        I almost cried, you know, the good kind. It was an hour into our adventure at that point and my Uncle decided to get him home. It was a wonderful evening. I'm actually glad we ran out of gas.
