The Fury also set a record: Joseph Vaillancourt's Plymouth Furydriven as a cab since the mids, reached 2, km over 1. Christinethe famous Plymouth Fury written about by Steven King, was able to not only fix itself, but also to take revenge upon those who hurt it. Introduced inand powered by a cubic inch V8, the Fury had sharply peaked tail fins and a Cadillac-like logo.
As expected the big Chrysler B blew everything else off the beach, including the stock models of the Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Thunderbird. It set a two way record of Then the driver, Mr. Phil Walters, took the Fury slowly down to the start of the timing lane. It was screaming over the sand so fast, that to look at it was almost like a distorted picture.
You couldn't quite focus fully on it. It was moving like the wind! With a resounding boom and a flash of gold, it was gone, the engine defiantly pounding out its deep belly staccato tune with bass notes better than any musical orchestra.
The timers acted like they were in slow motion. The fastest Plymouth ever built in history. And even faster than the B. Then the big Fury started back. It broke the timer at A defective fuel cap had caused a vacuum in the fuel tank and starved the engine for gas. On the return trip, it broke the lights at Under the hood was a Canadian-sourced cid V-8 pumping out an honest hp at rpm.
Reinforced dome pistons, a high-performance camshaft, high-load valve springs, balanced connecting rods, and high-speed distributor rounded out the engine package. Heavy-duty six leaves springs were fitted front and rear. Eleven-inch brakes at all four corners brought the car to a halt, and heavy-duty sway bars helped the big Plymouth track a straight line down the road.
The Fury sat 1 inch lower than its Belvedere stable mate, giving the car a leaner appearance. Forthe Forward Look arrivedand suddenly it was !

According to AllPar. The interior of police vehicles can ran the gamut from hardly used to openly abused, but this Fury suffers from minimal destruction. Notice the lack of any protective barriers behind the driver — and the rear windows still have cranks! Seems like an escape waiting to happen, if you ask me. The condition of those items may be suspect, given the years upon years of abuse — or, this Oklahoma cop car may have been used merely to write parking tickets and take up space in the motor pool.
What do you think a good offer price would be — or is it fairly priced as-is? It absolutely blew my mind how well that big boat handled! I wonder how this Fury would handle? I worked for GM during those years as a tech. Those were really beefed up cars. I always enjoyed test driving them after a service call. I thought The Blues Brothers destroyed all of these cars. I bought a former VA State Police car once.
It was a 70 Fury I. Never had a problem with it but it really guzzled gas. My brother and I always joked that the holes in those Dodge hubcaps made the siren sound at speed.

Bob G.Jim S; he has a great eye, to say the least. The seller says that this car has been hidden in a pole building for 25 years and is now in Rockford, MN, about a half-hour west of Minneapolis. This Spitfire Orange car is in gorgeous condition, but that goes without saying.
Are you confused yet? This car has a mere 50, miles on it, or an average of 1, miles a year over the last 40 years.
The original would have had hp and this one obviously has much more than that. The one seen here is as beautifully-detailed as the rest of the car is, though; no question about it. Well, there it is, this car has a three-speed automatic instead of a manual.
The A66 Super Pak option package is here, too, with fender flares, spoilers, rear quarter-window louvers, and stripes. You are correct, Chebby, the was an option but it only had about hp. I had a base Volare wagon as my first, new, company-provided vehicle.
You shoulda been told. BTW the spare never had to be used. Aspens, Furys, etc. Used to carry a spare for getting home after curfew. Oh the memories….
Aspens and Volares had Self destructing Front fenders. The fender replacement worked out great for me. Dodge sent me a check for fenders months after mine was totaled. Dad had a slant 6 one as a company car- oddly had the same key as our Tradesman van — thing was unstoppable started at without being plugged in- but the front seat was some sort of indestructible vinyl that would glue itself to any bare skin.
Say Capt, you said to name one muscle car out of Detroit between 76 and 86? I also understand the 70s in general was a time for slowish cars, however, by the early 80s, there were a few pretty quick cars.
Even the new 82 Mustang GT had some new found jump due to many upgrades that year. If you want to talk outside of Detroit, the Porsche s and s, the new for 85 S 32 valve 4 cam V8 was a monster. They are really the ones that started the horsepower wars again with the new for 81 Datsun ZX Turbo.
Remember how fast those Turbo Datsuns were? That car outran every car built that year and with an automatic transmission!Cars by name Trucks and Jeeps. Any year is important to the history of the world, yet some years are more conspicuous than others. What do we recall from ? I turned 15 that year, and cars interested me more than anything else. My dream was designing cars, driving cars, owning cars. But living in a rural area in the south of the Netherlands before the Internet meant that information was hard to get, and that the places where things happened were far away.
It started when the salesman of the local Simca garage one day turned up with a gold metallic Cordoba with parchment velour interior and I was smitten: I had to have one. Much later, I obtained a Plymouth Fury Sportwhich I sold in and bought back again in Before buying back the Fury Sport, I briefly owned a dark brown Cordoba which turned out to be rather problematic.
A car radio was still often an option, and a single-speaker radio was the standard in cars, although mostly with FM in Europe. Luckier people had a stereo cassette player in their cars. We looked with awe at Americans cars with 8-track systems with four! Another important new face in the road was the Mercedes-Benz Wseries, which since has become legendary.
Chrysler Canada did well intoo, with more sales. Outside the US and Canada, there were mixed results, with slightly fewer sales and exports for Chrysler Australia.
Chrysler France did very well the new Simca was a success but Chrysler UK was still going through difficult times. On a glance, things looked rosy, but given recent losses and the need to retool, quality suffered, with less extensive corrosion treatments and lower quality chromium parts.
Cars were now judged on fuel consumption, and while Chrysler had not been able to create substantially more efficient cars, it did import small cars and rebadged existing models to claim that specific nameplates had become smaller and lighter.
The situation at Chrysler was bleak, but upper management spent huge sums of money on a new carline that was barely larger than the A series and barely smaller than the B series. Regis, and Plymouth Gran Fury. There was more bad news inincluding selling the historic AirTemp divisionthough this division had been losing money. Quality-orientated AirTemp, selling non-automotive air conditioning systems, had not found a way to cope with cheap, disposable competition.
Less upsetting was the sale of the Big Sky resort, which had opened in as a real estate investment. The company also sold the New Stanton, Pennsylvania, plant. In the late sixties, there had been plans to build new Plymouth and Dodge cars on acres around the existing factory.
But instead, the plant was sold to Volkswagen, made Rabbits there inclosing the plant in Init controlled ignition timing; byit would also control the carburetor. Chrysler quickly improved the system, year to year, but it was likely pushed out too quickly, and many customers had problems with it.
Technician training may have also been an issue. However, nowhere in the press texts nor catalogues do I see any reference to rust prevention or improved building quality.
A big improvement here for was that the shoulder belts were finally made usable on most cars. Inthe old two-belt two-latch system had been replaced by the single-belt single-latch system; now the belts were easier to put on without having them lock up. Because D had been taken years ago by the largest Chrysler cars and Imperials, and E had been taken by the Barracuda and Challenger.
Confusing matters somewhat, in addition to the single letter body codes, the factory designation used in the VIN codes and factory repair manuals was completely unrelated to the body codes:. There were also numerous Dodge D-series trucks and cargo vans.
