Story

Most well known for its starring role as the villain in the film "Christine", the 1958 Plymouth Fury decked out in red and white colours is a highly desired car for collectors. The story goes that during filming for the movie no actual Furys were destroyed, with the film makers using Savoy and Belvedere models dressed to look like the Fury for any shots that brought harm to the car.

The Plymouth 350 cubic-inch B-block V8 was available as an option for the Fury, dubbed the Golden Commando, the engine ran at 10:1 compression and sat between the Chevrolet and Ford Big blocks of 1958 in capacity. Power was rated at 305 hp, with an optional endix electronic fuel-injection system that increased power up to 315 hp. However the injection system was not reliable with most getting replaced with a dual-carb setup. Production of the 58 Fury came in at a relatively low number of 5,303 adding further to the desirability of the car.
