You might recognise this car from a horror film, but actually this car stands on its own for performance. Before the mid ’50s Plymouth was the brand if you wanted slow, boring cars for older folks, maybe if you lived in an agricultural community. Sophisticated it was not.
But in 1955 Plymouth suddenly got more exciting; a V8 engine, sharp styling and two tone paint all helped to make things snappier, the conservative Plymouth owners couldn’t believe it. In 1956 the V8 was changed to make 240 horsepower, that wasn’t just a lot for Plymouth, it was a lot for any car. The 303 cubic inch motor came from Canadian Chrysler which qualified it for NASCAR racing. The sides of the car got a gold anodised flash to accentuate the styling, the interior colours were jazzed up and the Fury was one of the few sedans to get a tachometer.
For 1957 their styling was improved again, a lower window line made it look more sporty, the engine was now 318 cubic inches and with dual 4-barrel carbs it made 290 horsepower.
In 1958 the car was given four headlights and the 290 horsepower engine was standard, although there was an optional 350 cubic inch version that made 305 horsepower and with fuel injection it made an amazing 315 horsepower. The torsion bar front suspension gave good handling and the whole car was an amazing package. Years later, Stephen King chose the Fury as Christine, that shows how special the car was at the time.
