They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore

This 1958 Plymouth Fury is the proof that old cars are superior

You might recognize this car from the Horror film Christine. In the film the Fury is possessed by an evil soul. Don't worry however because this one is not. I hope. At the time this car was more of a luxury car, but you could also consider it an early muscle car. It had a V-8 which I will get to in a moment, but it did not lack power and performance. The Fury is truly something special. Lets dig in!

For the 1958 model year the 350 V-8 was an option over the 318. It was nicknamed "The Golden Commando". This Fury has the 350 cubic inch V-8 that has a pushrod valve-train, which means it has 2-valves per cylinder. It has dual four-barrel carburetors which is a large talking point with the Fury. The engine block and heads are cast iron and it has a wet sump oil system. The V-8 could produce 305 horsepower and 370 lb ft of torque. Not weak figures by any means. especially for the time. This Fury could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds, which was amazing for a massive luxury car. This car had the fury in it to scoot.

Of course being a luxury car, you expect some luxury features. And there is plenty. You get power brakes, power steering and a smooth automatic transmission. No stupid screens or consoles in this American beast. Not to mention it has large, comfortable bench seats. And if you have family, you can sit them in the back, despite it being a two-door. The cars were fitted with a dual exhaust system to make some noise when you desired.

And I shouldn't have to say that this car is beautiful. Because I hope that you have already said that. It was long and the fender tails are sculpted with passion. The front looks somewhat passive aggressive and the trim is very fancy. Usually I don't like black, but I have to say it looks fantastic on this wonderful 1958 Plymouth Fury. Thanks for reading and if you enjoyed don't forget to bump and follow for more!
