The front to rear styling seems confused, big 1950s fins in the back and a more scaled back front. The cut outs on the front fenders maybe kinda work.  Seat upholstery material could have been a better color.  I like the lines of the 1959 Fury better.  Sure would be an unusual car at any show.

Lose the fender skirts. It's going in enough styling directions as it sits.

Great steering wheel.

Clean car. I guess Furys go for big bucks so asking price isn't that far out of line, but I don't see it.

Uhhhhh. . . wasn't 1960 the first year for Chrysler to use alternators? 

Is this a swap just for the sale of a swap?

I'm not a MoPar expert, but I believe that in 1960,

only the Valiant (not yet under the Plymouth umbrella), had an alternator (NOT a 1 - wire either).

The following year the alternator concept became more broadly accepted - at least among Chrysler Corporation.

The contemptible velour....

....I just hope the person buying the car doesn't notice that it's way wrong. BTW I think 1960 was the last year for generators in full-sized Plymouths. 1960 Valiants had alternators.

Mopars received some pretty bizarre nylon weaves for upholstery material with silver threads running through two-tone figured and textured fabric.   Probably didn't want to spring for SMS to weave some reproduction cloth and the cost made him blanch.   Still, that plain velour is a poor choice substitute.  Might better pick something with a retro-period appearance even if it wasn't an exact duplicate of the original material.
