HISTORY OF THE PLYMOUTH FURY:
The first limited-edition, high-performance Plymouth Fury was introduced in 1956 and was basically a junior version of the Chrysler 300. When first introduced, they were available only in off-white with a gold-anodized body-side sweepspear. Other colors would appear during subsequent years. Legendary designer Virgil Exner was the man responsible for this new styling, known as the 'Million Dollar Look', and would be used throughout the lineup, including on Plymouths, Dodge, DeSoto, Chrysler and Imperial cars for 1957. Another standard for 1957 was Chrysler's now familiar torsion bar front suspension and three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
Suddenly it was 1960, and Chrysler/Plymouth was scrambling to produce cars to please the public, fins suddenly having become passe. The Fury remained Plymouth's sales volume model through the troubled early 1960s, when the full-sized Fury was saddled with unique styling and an intermediate (or mid-sized) platform, being the most luxurious of the Plymouth lineup. The first year a Fury convertible was offered was in 1960, producing just over 7,000 units. Comparing itself to competing cars in terms of suspension, Plymouth claimed 100% greater body rigidity and 40% greater beam strength. The "girders" which provided that strength were touted as being 75% heavier than those used in conventional construction. Yet, without the frame they replaced, these girders actually helped reduce the weight of the car. One of unitized construction's drawbacks is that no sound insulating material can isolate the body from the frame, bringing road noise into the cabin. To counter this problem, Plymouth developed extra large rear spring bushings, a new exhaust system hanger, and a driveshaft designed to reduce high-speed hum. Special sound deadening fiber matting and liquid-applied coating contributed to making what could have been "riding in a tin can" into a pleasurable experience of traveling in a car far quieter than those of then-conventional construction. And, of course, the engine was mounted on its own frame, separated from the body by the usual sound deadeners By the time the 1960's successor was introduced late in the year, there would be no disappointment about lack of change. Although basically the same car, the '61, except for roof lines and rear wheel cutouts, had changed completely from the previous year - even the silhouette was different. Plymouth's prime distinguishing characteristic for the past six years was gone. For Plymouth, as 1960 drew to a close, it was the end of the fin.
