Thanks for sharing this Jack but when a story is too good to be
true, it usually is.
The thought of a barn find set of nos Fury wheelcovers in
original Chrysler boxes wrapped in pillow cases would have many a Fury owner
reaching for their wallets in an effort to snag these before someone else does.
Turns out this “guy who is no expert” has them listed on Ebay
for the not so bargain price of $1,250. Still not an unreasonable price you
might think for such a mint looking set of wheelcovers for a vehicle where
there were only 5,303 units produced 58 years ago.
The part number on the back of the wheelcovers in the Ebay ad is
Part 1828-404. Standard (non – Fury!) 1958 Plymouth wheelcovers with fresh gold
CJ Johnson might be a little sneakier than he would have you

Subject: [GFS] '58 Fury wheel covers
Happy 4th of July! Today I talked with a fellow who came
across 4 '58 wheelcovers in original Chrysler boxes, though wrapped in pillow cases.
He says they are gold in the center. He does not own a Fury or Mopar, but
would like to sell them to someone who could use them. I asked him
whether the gold looked painted or anodized. He said they didn't look
painted but translucent and said he was certainly no expert. He said they
were in excellent shape. If interested call CJ Johnson in Ohio at
Also, on eBay, that '57 Fury that was up at a starting price of
$16K and then came down has been relisted at same starting price but with a BIN
of $17,500. Low mileage, complete, but requires complete resto.
