1972 Plymouth Fury Sport Suburban station wagon - I believe it was this car featured on Hemmings (it has the special "police light" on the driver's side door) - and the YouTube video narrative indicated that this was the only Plymouth Fury wagon ever equipped with the 440 V8 and a factory power sunroof (or something like that). For station wagon aficionados - it's "hauwt."
This is a great Cunningham Restorations T shirt inspired by Christine featuring as it does a Plymouth Fury as per the classic horror book / Carpenter flick and an imagined commercialised version of Arnie's restoration at Darnell's garage. 100% unofficial. Great full screenprinted heavy weight cotton t shirt from Old Skool Hooligans purveyors of classic film inspired t-wear since 2007.

Nearly 60 years later, Billy Williams can still remember the make and model of the car. It was a Plymouth Fury — always a Plymouth Fury — and on that particular day in 1959, it was pulling up a driveway in rural Whistler, Alabama. The car sat long and low, like a big ole slab on wheels, and as it rolled toward the house, Williams knew exactly what it meant: Buck O’Neil was here to see him.
In 1975, the Plymouth Fury moved to the smaller, but still quite large, B-body platform; in essence, the Belvedere was renamed “Fury” and restyled to match that name’s grandeur. The Gran Fury remained on the new-for-’74 C-body platform, at least until its end in 1977.
