The Fury enjoyed a long lifespan in the Plymouth marque, lasting from 1955 to 1989 and seven generations. When it was introduced for the 1956 model year, it was a sub-series of the Plymouth Belvedere, becoming a separate series above the Belvedere for 1959. The seventh generation was introduced in 1975 and produced until 1978. The coupe had a wheelbase size of 115 inches while the sedans rested on a 117.5 inch platform.
For 1975, the Fury moved to the restyled mid-size B-body platform. For 1977, the mid-size Plymouths and their Dodge Monaco cousins received a major restyling which included the vertically-stacked quad rectangular headlamps. The grille shape remained similar to the previous year's design but with a larger molding surrounding the grille with 'Plymouth' block letters located in the top center. The grille patter had two rows (an upper and lower section) of small vertical-style segments. Below the stacked lights and the grille was the bumper which housed the parking and signal lamps. Small side marker lenses were located on the sides, behind the front bumper and ahead of the front wheel openings. 'Fury' fender scripts were located just behind the front wheels.
Bodystyles included a hardtop coupe, sedan, and a 6- and 9-passenger station wagon. The base price began at $3,890. The Fury Sport trim level was available as a Sport Hardtop, Salon Sedan, and a 6- and 9-passenger station wagon. They had 'Sport' script located on the C-pillar, recessed license plate openings, vertical taillamps, and a decklid with 'Plymouth' block lettering. The interior had a crushed velour and vinyl split-back bench seats with folding center armrests. The base Fury trim level had a Regency cloth/vinyl bench seat. The Sport Fury came standard with sill moldings, hood rear edge and belt moldings, hood ornament, and dual horns. The Fury Salon had a hood ornament, velour split-back bench seat, upper door frame moldings, dual horns, deck molding, and the Salon nameplate and crest.
The standard engine was a 225 cubic-inch six-cylinder unit with 110 horsepower. An optional 318 CID V8 brought horsepower to 145. The station wagons came with a standard 360 CID V8 that had 155 horsepower. The Electronic Lean Burn 400 CID V8 was rated at 190 horsepower. A three-speed manual transmission was standard on the base Fury with the 318 CID and a TorqueFlite was standard on the six-cylinder model. Standard equipment included F78x15 blackwall tires, heater/defroster, bumper guards, hubcaps, dome light, lockable glovebox, and wheel opening moldings. The sedans had armrests for the front and rear seats, and the hardtops had a decklid lowering molding. by Daniel Vaughan | Jun 2019
