STK Plymouth Fury III
Plymouth 'officially' jumped into the muscle car race in with the Roadrunner. It was an instant success, mainly because MOPAR had been building performance cars for years, just not marketed them as muscle cars. This Plymouth Fury is a perfect example of an early MOPAR performance machine. Our partially restored Fury III is a rare classic – equipped with the /4-speed drivetrain configuration. The beautiful Plymouth has only had 3 owners in 53 years and the current owner believes the 32K mileage figure to be actual. It received a professional repaint in and all exterior chrome/stainless is in very good condition. The original vinyl interior is also in very good condition. There is a full set of gauges, Bosch tach, an impressive factory Hurst shifter and aftermarket A/C to keep you cool. According to the owner, the ci wedge has never been rebuilt and retains all factory components with the exception of the Edelbrock 4-barrel that replaced the original Carter carburetor. The A 4-speed (designed for S/S racing) is virtually indestructible and like many MOPARs of the era the Fury is equipped with power steering and manual 4-wheel drum brakes. It strikes a nice stance on polished MOPAR Magnum steel wheels that mount Uniroyal radial tires. This is a rare 'bird – a luxury pre-Roadrunner if you will. Study the photos of this bona fide classic. The Fury III is correct and impressive. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.

Plymouth Fury III
Plymouth Fury III Nod to NASCAR. James Dixey’s Plymouth Fury III might look and sound like a race car, but he still uses it every day… Words: Mike Renaut. Photography: Matt Richardson.
Three of a Kind
Plymouth badly needed its cars to be successful. Following the stunning to models that were so good-looking, it forced rivals General Motors into last-minute redesigns; the Plymouth’s styling rather losing its way. Things got worse in ‘ with the full-size cars having a bug-eyed monster look and so unnerving was it to buyers that Plymouth was outsold by Rambler. Build quality wasn’t always great either, although Plymouth’s rust-proofing had been vastly improved. So these cars weren’t bad – they just seemed badly out of step.
Then came the s. They suffered from downsized proportions after Chrysler acted on the incorrect rumours that Ford’s forthcoming mid-sized Fairlane and Chevrolet’s Chevy II meant both rival companies were shrinking their entire car lines. The Fury styling was love it or hate it, and Plymouth slipped to eighth place in sales terms. But those smaller, lighter Chrysler cars, with their strong and powerful V8 engines, certainly appealed to racers.
By a new team of managers and designers were putting things right by making the Plymouth styling more mainstream and, for the first time in four years, full size. The target market for the new Fury was the same as luxury rivals like Chevy’s Impala and Ford’s Galaxie, and the Plymouth seemed a subtle blend of the styling of both those cars while sharing virtually identical dimensions. The Plymouths were well-received. In fact, Sport Furys sold in record numbers – the convertible’s sales doubled from , the hardtop sold % better and Plymouth produced over , cars for the first time ever.
James Dixey is definitely an admirer of the Fury and he owns the one you see here. “I bought it last September from Martin, a family friend,” says James. “He’d only done miles in the eight years he’d owned it. My dad, Andy, was going to buy the Fury, but he changed his mind. He’s owned a Impala for over 20 years − it was featured in Classic American in April − so I got into cars through him. He also has a cu in ’ Chevelle that’s his daily driver. He says it’s a waste to have them parked and not being driven. He would lend me the Chevelle and that got me wanting my own American car.
“I bought a ’ Skylark with a cu in motor from a boat-tail Riveria – that performed very well. I sold it when I had a baby on the way and bought a Mk3 Capri Laser, which I restored with a friend. Dad and I were looking at a Fairlane and a ’ Biscayne, but I just decided the Fury looked better than the others. Although I’m more into the later cars, especially the and ’ Fury, once Martin opened the garage door and I heard that ’ fire up, the decision was made.
“The Fury’s bodywork was covered in overspray,” remembers James, “so I’ve wet-flatted it down and polished it – which took four days. I didn’t want a show car shine − this is a daily driver − but I did want it looking smart. It turned out to have had very good paint once I’d tidied it up. I also tuned the engine and fitted electronic ignition – it really flies now.”
Leave in a Fury
This Plymouth is one of 43, Fury III two-door, hardtop, six-passenger coupes sold for It’s all steel, including the bumpers that are only painted to look like aluminium. There’s no complete history, but we do know it was built at Hamtramck, Michigan, and arrived at Turman-Yeatts Motor Company Inc in Floyd, Virginia, on March 18, , and delivered to its first owner the following day. The base price was $ but, other than seatbelts and the optional four-speed gearbox with a desirable Hurst linkage, virtually the only options specified appear to be the cu in Commando V8, which added $ to the cost – a bargain compared to $ for the cu in race Hemi – and $39 of Sure Grip Positive Traction rear axle. There’s not even a radio, so it seems like the original owner wanted a quick car on a small budget.
At some point after the Plymouth returned to the original dealership. On November 13 it was bought by a second owner, Willard Ratliff, having covered an impressive miles within those first eight months. By July of , it had more than 15, miles on it, and that’s virtually all we know.
Introduced in September 25, , there were four separate lines of Plymouth Fury, all of them boasting new curved side glass. Each of those lines was based on the entry level Fury I that came with a heater/defroster, front seatbelts and blackwall tyres. Next was the Fury II, which had foam seats and carpets. Fury III added a courtesy light package, electric clock and reversing lights. As in previous years, the top model was still badged the Sport Fury. It had the previous luxury items, plus bucket seats and console as standard (bucket seats were only fitted to 16% of ’ Furys), sports wheel covers, deluxe steering wheel and fender skirts.
All four models came on a in wheelbase (wagons were in) and had styling unique to the Fury, with stylish stacked headlights and V-shaped rear wings. The more you spent, the more shine you got – the Fury III also boasting full-length side trim with a coloured centre and twin tail-lights.
Engines included the indestructible bhp, cu in Slant Six base engine or hp cu in V8 as standard, depending on the model. Next up was the two-barrel Commando cu in V8 rated at hp, a four-barrel Commando with bhp or the fire-breathing rated at hp. A three-speed column-mounted manual transmission came standard with either a four-speed manual or three-speed TorqueFlite automatic as an option.
Most Fury buyers opted for the Torqueflite – to the disappointment of many owners, this year it was no longer controlled by dashboard-mounted push buttons.
Plymouth listed six Fury III body styles. The attractive two-door hardtop coupe with an elegant roofline known as the ‘hardtop convertible styling’ came second only to the four-door sedan in sales. Two station wagon models seated either six or nine, while a convertible and a four-door hardtop rounded out the range. Fury III buyers could choose from 15 exterior colours including eight metallics, several different vinyls for seat inserts and a wide array of fabrics. Also available were remote control driver’s mirror, AM or AM/FM radios, Auto-Pilot cruise control, air conditioning, underhood light, power seats (bench and buckets) and a centre console.
Fury III production for reached , units, Fury I sold 79, examples, while Fury II saw sales of 66, Plymouth was successfully tapping into a market of people wanting an inexpensive car that looked and felt better than average. Overall, Plymouth had produced , cars − a big step towards regaining third place in sales. The 14,,th Plymouth − a Sport Fury − was built near the end of
“Martin had built it as a Buddy Baker tribute car and done some bodywork to it but, so far as I know, nothing mechanical,” remembers James. Buddy Baker was the first NASCAR driver to crack the mph barrier, hitting mph in a bhp Charger Daytona during a test at Talladega in He won a total of 19 races in NASCAR’s top division over his year career – which naturally included time behind the wheel of Plymouths.
“When I first saw a photo of the car with all the race decals added I loved it, but it really divides opinion,” continues James. “The decals are lacquered over now so they won’t come off. The bonnet scoops may be a period modification since the tends to run hot, and they really help it cool. It’s got an Edelbrock double pumper that’s been re-jetted − it was previously running twin s and over-fuelling. I need to say thanks to my good mate Wayne Heathfield at Wizard Customs ( ) in Sheerness, who helps when I need to work on it.
Are there any downsides? “Power steering would be nice and the brakes are non-assisted drums all round, so you plan ahead when you need to stop, and the neighbours aren’t so keen when I arrive home late at night since it’s a bit noisy. It’s lively in the wet too. Actually, ‘arsehappy’ is a better description, even with the limited slip diff.
But overall, it’s a comfortable car and really nice to drive – a cruiser that does get up and go. If you really get moving, you do lose a bit of time shifting so I keep the revs above rpm and shift up above You don’t even need fourth gear until you get over 60mph. Apparently, it was garaged all its life, but it sits outside in the street now I own it and I’m a bit apprehensive about leaving it out in bad weather.
Next, I fancy a El Camino and recently I’m really wanting a ’ Chevy. As a rule, I don’t get sentimental over selling vehicles, but I think I’ll have this Fury for a while.”
“I THINK I’LL HAVE THIS FURY FOR A WHILE”
“THE BRAKES ARE NON-ASSISTED DRUMS ALL ROUND, SO YOU NEED TO PLAN AHEAD WHEN YOU NEED TO STOP”
“I TUNED THE ENGINE AND FITTED ELECTRONIC IGNITION – IT REALLY FLIES NOW!”

The Plymouth Fury is a model of automobile which was produced by Plymouth from to It was introduced for the model year as a sub-series of the Plymouth Belvedere, becoming a separate series one level above the contemporary Belvedere for The Fury was a full-size car from to , then a mid-size car from to , again a full-size car from to , and again a mid-size car from to From to the Fury was sold alongside the full-size Plymouth Gran Fury. In , the B-body Fury was the largest Plymouth, and by , there was no large Plymouth. This was rectified in with the R-body Gran Fury, followed by the M-body Fury in Production of the last V8, RWD Plymouth Fury ended at Kenosha, WI, on December 23, Unlike its sibling brand, Dodge, Plymouth would not live to see the resurgence of the large, V8/RWD sedan. The nameplate "fury" is from Latin for "rage, extreme anger, strength or violence in action"
Early history (–)
The Fury was a sub-series of the Plymouth Belvedere from through It was sold only as a sandstone white two-door hardtop with gold anodized aluminum trim, in and In it was only available in buckskin beige with gold anodized aluminum trim. These Furys had special interiors, bumper wing-guards and V8 engines with twin four-barrel carburetors. The and cuin (L)-engine produced hp (kW), shared with the Dodge Coronet.
The models were restyled; longer, wider, with very large vertical tailfins and a new torsion bar front suspension replacing the previous coil springs. While the new styling boosted sales, quality control suffered for all Chrysler products as they were brought quickly to market before their design and construction weaknesses could be fully addressed by engineering. The front suspension introduced Chrysler's Torsion-Aire Torsion bar suspension shared with all Chrysler products starting in
In , the optional engine was a "big block"cuin (L) called the "Golden Commando" with two four-barrel carburetors producing hp (kW). A hp (kW) option with fuel injection was available, but the Bendixelectronic fuel-injection system was recalled by the factory and owners were given a conventional dual four-barrel setup. The Golden Commando engine was optional on any Plymouth Plaza, Savoy, Belvedere, Suburban, and Fury, as was the dual four-barrel cuin (L) (dubbed the "V Dual Fury"; four- and two-barrel s also arrived for and were simply called "Vs").
First generation ()
In , Plymouth introduced the Sport Fury as its top model, and the Fury as its second from the top model to replace the Plymouth Belvedere at the top of the Plymouth line-up. The Fury was now available in 4-door Sedan, 2-door Hardtop and 4-door Hardtop models and the Sport Fury as a 2-door Hardtop and a Convertible. The station wagon version of the Fury was the Sport Suburban, which was not marketed as a Fury. The Sport Fury was dropped at the end of , but was reintroduced in mid and discontinued in
In , the was replaced with a cuin (L) version of the Golden Commando with a two- or four-barrel carburetor. The dual four-barrel version of the "small block" cuin (L) was also introduced that year, with the four-barrel available on this engine through the model year.
Plymouth Fury 4-door Hardtop
The Dodge Viscount was an automobile built by Chrysler Canada for the model year only. It was based on the contemporary Plymouth Fury, but featured a Dodge front clip assembled to the Plymouth Fury body. However, there was no sport model counterpart to the Sport Fury sold in the U.S.
Second generation (–)
The models were the first year for unibody construction, the first year for Chrysler's ram induction system, and the first year for Chrysler's new slant-six engine. The original and were available, along with a The cuin (L) slant-six produced hp (kW) at 4,rpm. The produced hp (kW).
The styling for the model year had been formulated in during the height of tailfin era, but they fell from fashion. While Chevrolet and Ford sales increased during , Plymouth barely continued its volume.
Tailfins were removed for
The Fury remained Plymouth's leading sales volume model through the early s.

Third generation (–)
The Fury emerged as a downsized model riding on the new Chrysler B-body unibody platform, the product of a Chrysler Corporation embroiled in multiple corporate controversies at the time. Sales of the new model were slow, prompting the reintroduction of the Sport Fury trim package, offered as a hardtop coupe or a convertible. The range included a Fury 4-door Station Wagon, the wagon equivalent of the Fury having previously been marketed as the Plymouth Sport Suburban.
Chrysler Corporation began to restyle and enlarge the Plymouths and Dodges, which improved sales in and The models saw an improvement in sales, especially the two-door hardtop, which featured a new slanted roofline. Engine choices remained the same throughout this three-year cycle.

Fourth generation (–)
In , Chrysler returned the Fury to the new, full-size Chrysler C-body platform. The new Plymouth line included three special Furys: the Fury I, Fury II, and Fury III. The Fury I was the basic model, while the Fury II and Fury III offered more trim and features. Full size Furys had options such as automatic transmissions, power steering, white sidewall tires (along with full wheel covers), stereo radios, vinyl tops, and air conditioning. The Sport Fury was the highest trim and feature model, positioned to compete with the Chevrolet Impala Super Sport and Ford Galaxie /XL. It offered a sportier interior and exterior trim package. The Fury II was available as a two-door hardtop in Canada only; in the U.S. it was only available as a two- or four-door sedan, and as a station wagon.
The overall design changed, with the grille losing chrome but gaining two vertical stacked headlights on each side. All rode on new in (3,mm) wheelbases (in (3,mm) for the wagons)—1in (25mm) longer than before. The "street wedge" V8 was introduced, rated at hp (kW) and finally street-legal.
The Furys kept the same profile as the s, with a split front and rear grill motif. For , the body was restyled with a sharp, angular profile. The stacked quad headlight bezels were curvier and set more deeply into the body, giving the car a more muscular look. The roofline had sharper angles and gave the car a longer, more luxurious appearance. A new, formal two-door hardtop body style appeared which featured smaller rear quarter windows and a wider, back-slanted "C" pillar. Called the "fast top", it was offered alongside the restyled thin "C" pillar hardtop in both VIP and Sport Fury series (as well as on corresponding big Dodge models). The model year introduced new safety regulations, which meant that for the first time, all Plymouths included dual-circuit brake master cylinders, energy-absorbing steering columns and wheels, recessed instrument panel controls, and shoulder belt mounting points for outboard front seat occupants.
The Furys received only minor grille updates up front, along with side marker lights and shoulder belts for front outboard occupants (except the convertibles). At the rear, however, all models except the station wagons received new sheet metal, including reshaped rear doors on four-door models. Meanwhile, the Suburban badge returned to station wagons after having been retired in The Suburban, Custom Suburban, and Sport Suburban corresponded to the Fury I, II, and III models.
From to , a luxury version of the Fury, called the "Plymouth VIP" (marketed as the "very important Plymouth" in ) was fielded, in response to the Ford LTD, Chevrolet Caprice, and the AMC Ambassador DPL. These models came with standards such as full wheel covers, vinyl tops, luxuriously upholstered interiors with walnut dashboards and door-panel trim, a thicker grade of carpeting, more sound insulation, and full courtesy lighting.
In Australia, the full size Dodge Phoenix was based on the Dodge Dart and until , when it became a right-hand drive version of the contemporary Fury. The Phoenix continued in production in Australia until , each based on that year's North American Plymouth Fury.

Fifth generation (–)
The models featured Chrysler's new round-sided "Fuselage Look" styling. The Fury was again available as a 2-door hardtop, 2-door convertible, 4-door hardtop, 4-door sedan, and 4-door station wagon. For , the VIP was discontinued and a 4-door hardtop was added to the Sport Fury range, which also gained a new hardtop coupe. This was available in "GT" trim; the and Sport Fury GTs were powered by the cuin (L) engine, which in could be ordered with three 2-barrel (twin-choke) carburetors (the "6-Barrel on Plymouth and 6-PAK for Dodge"). This engine produces hp (kW).
The models included the Fury I, Fury II and Fury III, the sport-model Sport Fury and the top-line VIP. The cubic-inch six-cylinder engine continued as standard on the Fury I, II and select III models, with the cubic-inch V8 standard on the Sport Fury, some Fury III models, and all VIP models plus the station wagon; a three-speed manual transmission was standard, with the TorqueFlite automatic transmission optional. The six-cylinder engine/three-speed manual transmission power team – along with the three-speed manual transmission on the cubic-inch V8 – continued to be available until midway through the model year, after which all full-sized Plymouths were built with a V8 engine, including the new cubic inch engine and automatic transmission. Parking lights now illuminated with the headlights, which meant that if one headlight was inoperative in low beam, that other drivers wouldn't mistake your car for a motorcycle in the dark.
For , the VIP was dropped, with the Sport Fury line expanded to include a four-door hardtop sedan. An optional Brougham package, which included individually-adjustable split bench seats with passenger recliner and luxurious trim comparable to the former VIP series, was available on Sport Furys; a Sport Fury GT and S/23 models. The S/23 was dropped for , with new options including an electric sunroof (for top-line models) and a stereo tape player with a microphone, making it possible to record off the radio or take dictation.
The s offered a new Sport Fury 4-door sedan, and a coupe (similar to the Sport Fury hardtop but with fixed rear quarter windows) in the Fury I series. A hardtop coupe was now available in the Fury II series, and a Formal Hardtop was available for both Sport Fury and Fury III. New options included headlight washers, and a stereo cassette recorder.
For , the Fury was facelifted with a large chrome twin-loop bumper design with a small insignia space between the loops and hidden headlamps as standard equipment on the Sport Suburban, and the newly introduced Fury Gran Coupe and Gran Sedan, which eventually would become the Plymouth Gran Fury; the Sport Fury and GT models were dropped, while the new Fury Gran series offered an optional Brougham package. The six-cylinder engine, strangled by emissions requirements, was no longer offered in full-size Plymouths. On the other hand, a cubic inch V8 was now an option. For , the front end was redesigned with a new grille and headlamp setup, along with bumpers capable of withstanding 5mph (8km/h) impacts. The became the standard engine for Fury Suburbans.

Sixth generation ()
For , the Fury shared Chrysler's all-new full-size C-body platform in common with the concurrent flagship Imperial (); Chrysler New Yorker (), Newport () and Town & Country (); and with the Dodge Monaco () and Royal Monaco () as well. Styling was more squared off with lower beltlines and greater use of glass than with Chrysler's previous fuselage generation (), also with cues more similar to the model year and later GM "B" bodies and model year –74 Mercurys. The unibody structure with subframe for engine/transmission was retained along with other typical Chrysler Corporation engineering features including torsion bar front suspension and multi-leaf springs in the rear.
Model lineup again included the Fury I, Fury II, Fury III and Gran Fury series, plus the Suburban and Sport Suburban station wagons. Engine offerings included a standard cuin (L) V8 with two-barrel carburetor on sedans and coupes, a two-barrel cuin (L) V8 standard on wagons and optional on other models, and four-barrel carbureted and cuin (L) V8s optional on all models.
All Furys came standard with TorqueFlite automatic transmissions, power steering, and power front disc brakes.
As part of the company's efforts to make ordering a well-equipped car easier, two special model packages were available: a basic group (which had items already ordered on a majority of full-sized Plymouths, such as an AM radio, air conditioning, light group and tinted glass) and a luxury group (which added items such as cruise control, power windows and an AM/FM stereo radio). The Brougham package, whose centerpiece was the individually-adjustable 50/50 divided front seat with individual center armrests and recliners, was still available for Gran Furys. New options included Chrysler's chronometer (an electronic digital clock), a gauge alert system that used light-emitting diodes to monitor engine functions and automatic temperature control.

Seventh generation (–)
For the model year, Chrysler moved the Fury name, which had been part of the full-size C-body Plymouth model line up during the previous ten model years, over to the restyled mid-size B-body line, which had been marketed as the Satellite previously. The "Road Runner" was offered as the top-of-the-line model of the redesigned Plymouth Fury 2-door line up, then it was moved over to the Plymouth Volare line up during the following model year (). The full-size Plymouth, now known as the Plymouth Gran Fury, lasted through The entire mid-size Plymouth Fury line up was discontinued at the end of the model year, replaced in Canada by the rebadgedDodge Diplomat model called the Plymouth Caravelle (not to be confused with the E-bodyPlymouth Caravelle from to and the to Plymouth Caravelle for the American car market). During the entire model year, there were no Fury offerings from Plymouth at all.
Only minor styling changes occurred from the to the model years, most notably, during the model year when quad stacked square headlights (see photo) replaced the previous round dual beam headlights, the front turn signals, previously on the outboard edges of the grille, were moved over to the cutouts in the front bumper. Tail lights received amber turn signal lenses in place of the previous red turn signal lenses. Various 2-door models had no centerposts and some of them were true hardtops with roll-down rear windows. Other two-door models had fixed rear windows even though they had no centerposts. For the most part, the Plymouth Fury two-door models, during the and the model years, were labeled as "hardtops".
The Plymouth Fury, , shared its B-body and unibody structure with the Dodge Coronet (), Dodge Monaco () and the corporation's new personal-luxury coupe models, Chrysler Cordoba () and Dodge Charger SE (). All the four-door models, wagons and sedans alike, continued with the basic body shells, which date back to the start of the model year, rode on a in (2,mm) wheelbase, while the various two-door models—which were restyled with new and more formal sheetmetal and rooflines—rode on the in (2,mm) wheelbase.
Before , the Plymouth Satellite had a in (2,mm) wheelbase, while the Dodge Coronet had a in (2,mm) wheelbase. For , the mid-size Plymouth Fury had a in (2,mm) wheelbase and the Dodge Coronet had the same wheelbase.
Before , the Plymouth Fury had a in (3,mm) wheelbase, while the Dodge Monaco/Polara had a in (3,mm) wheelbase. For , the Plymouth Gran Fury and Dodge Monaco had the same in (3,mm) wheelbase.
Fury was offered in three basic subseries for in sedans and coupes and two for the station wagon. The sedan was offered in base, custom and salon models, with interior and exterior trim ranging from austere to luxurious. The salon featured plush velour bench seats with recliners and folding armrests and carpeted trunks, along with a spring-loaded hood ornament with the Plymouth logo. In addition to the Road Runner, the Fury coupes were offered in base, Custom and Sport models. The "sport" was the top-line coupe featuring body pinstriping on the upper door and front and rear fenders, interiors with all-vinyl bucket seats and center cushion and armrest, or optional center console; or split bench seats with armrest, along with plusher shag carpeting on floor and door panels plus lower door carpeting. The wagons were available as either the Fury Suburban or Fury Custom Suburban.
Engine offerings included the cuin (L) slant-six that was standard on all models except Fury Sport, Road Runner, and station wagons, which came with the cuin (L) V8 as the base engine which was optional on other models. Optional engines on all models included cuin (L) and cuin (L) V8s with two- or four-barrel carburetor, and the cuin (L) four-barrel was only as a "police" option on four-door sedans. A three-speed manual transmission was standard with the automatic TorqueFlite optional.
The model year mid-size B-body Plymouth Fury saw very few appearance changes from the previous year other than the availability of a dual opera window roof on Sport Fury two-door models. Engine and transmission offerings were also unchanged except that the two-barrel V8 was now the standard engine on station wagons along with the TorqueFlite automatic transmission, both items of which were optional on other models.
The model year mid-size B-body Plymouth Fury received a new front end with a chrome vertical bar grille and outline along with stacked rectangular headlights. Model and drivetrain offerings were unchanged from except that the Slant Six now had two-barrel carburetion replacing the one-barrel pot of previous years and was now standard on the Sport Fury two-door models. Optional V8 engines included the two-barrel, two- or four-barrel and two- or four-barrel. The four-barrel V8 was only offered in four-door models as part of the police package.
The model year was technically a mid-size B-body car, but the Plymouth Fury was Plymouth's largest car with the discontinuation of the full-size C-body Plymouth Gran Fury after TorqueFlite automatic transmission and power steering were now standard on all Fury models and the same selection of V8 engines was still available. Few appearance changes were made from the previous model year. The was the last model year for the Plymouth Fury and its Dodge Monaco counterpart, which was renamed as such during the start of the previous model year (), which, in turn, was called the "Dodge Coronet" (from , to , to , to and from on through to ), while the former full-size C-body Dodge was renamed the "Dodge Royal Monaco" during the start of the previous model year () up until it was discontinued after just one model year. The personal-luxury coupes, which were based on the mid-size B-body platform, including the Chrysler Cordoba and Dodge Magnum (renamed from Charger in ) would soldier on for one more year until they were downsized (and renamed Mirada for the Dodge version) in to the M-body platform used for the Dodge Diplomat and Chrysler LeBaron.
Main article: Plymouth Gran Fury
For , Chrysler's venerable B-body chassis/unibody structure was reengineered and restyled into the new R-body full-sized car, which was a considerably downsized replacement of the –78 C-body cars. The R-body included the Chrysler Newport, Chrysler New Yorker, and Dodge St. Regis The R-body Gran Fury, although not common in retail sales,did quite well in fleet and government/public safety sales.
After Chrysler discontinued the R-body halfway through the model year, they decided to anoint the M-body platform with "full-size" status for The New Yorker and Gran Fury nameplates were thus assigned to the former LeBaron and Canadian Caravelle models, respectively, for the US market. The Chrysler New Yorker () and New Yorker Fifth Avenue () (renamed Chrysler Fifth Avenue for ) shared the Gran Fury and Dodge Diplomat body.
The M-body cars were available through the model year, and the Gran Fury and Diplomat were very popular choices for police cruisers. Chrysler discontinued the M-body (and L-body) cars in late , midway through the model year. That brought over 30 years of Plymouth Fury history to an end.
In popular culture
A Plymouth Fury was the title subject of the best-selling novel Christine by Stephen King. Later in the same year the book was adapted into a movie of the same name.
