The Plymouth Fury was Fury by name and fury by nature .
Plymouth introduced the designation Fury in the model year 1956. The first Fury was from the sub-series Belvedere , which was offered exclusively as a two-door hardtop coupé. The body of the Fury was identical to that of the Belvedere and made all the changes that the Belvedere experienced year after year. However, the Fury was each exclusively equipped with the largest engine that offered Plymouth at that time.A red painted 1958 Fury, was in the John Carpenter's movie Christine from 1983. From the novel by Stephen King .
The Fury of the model years 1956 to 1958 was the most powerful and at the same time most expensive vehicle of the Plymouth brand. The vehicles were painted exclusively in white (1956) or beige and had golden ornamental applications on the sides of the car.
for the 1958 two-door from Plymouth, because while it looked like it had more style than substance, it was quicker than most in its day. Furys had always been fitted with Chrysler's biggest powerplant available since their launch in 1956, and the 1957 cars' 318ci (5.2-litre) engine disappeared after a year to be replaced by a more powerful 350ci (5.7-litre) V8, The Fury got the reputation for being Detroit's best-handling car in 1957, and this was mostly down to Chrysler's new-for-1957 'Torsion Air Ride' suspension which had longitudinal torsion bar springs up front. The design was so good it lasted through until 1980 in the Volaire. The car handled well also because it had a low centre of gravity due to the car's low stance. Styling was typical for the era, with high fins on the rear, wraparound front and rear windshields, and pillarless side windows.
Initially, the Fury was powered by a 493 cc (303 cubic inch) eight-cylinder V engine with an output of 240 SAE-hp. As of 1957, the Fury was equipped exclusively with a 5211 cc eight-cylinder engine, which made 290 SAE-PS, and the following year could optionally be ordered on a 5735 cc (350 cubic inch) enlarged version with 305 and 315 SAE-PS. Sales prices were $ 2866 in 1956 and $ 3067 two years later. This corresponded to the level of the higher-positioned models of the sister brand Dodge; the other Plymouth models were priced from $ 300 to $ 400 cheaper.
The Fury was the lowest-selling Plymouth brand in these three years. The production figures reached only four-digit values (4485 vehicles in 1956, 7438 in the following and 5303 in 1958).
