1957 Plymouth Fury
Car for sale by RB Collection in Allentown, Pennsylvania 18101
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
RB Collection is pleased to offer this outstanding, highly original 1957
Plymouth Fury fresh out of long-term care with a single enthusiastic
owner. Finished in Sand Dune White with a gold roof and side-flash, this
Fury is a wonderful example of Plymouth’s iconic and sporty flagship
coupe, well-preserved in mostly unrestored and original condition. While
Plymouth sat at the entry level of the Chrysler lineup, the Fury was
Plymouth’s flagship and did not skimp on equipment and features. This
car is equipped with the powerful A-series “polyspheric” V8 with dual
carburetors, a robust Torqueflight transmission with push button
operation, power steering, and an AM radio.
The body is in excellent condition, the recipient of a good quality partial respray only as needed. The paint is glossy and attractive, while the panel fit and gaps are consistent and exemplary of an unrestored, unmolested original car. The extensive exterior stainless steel and chrome brightwork is also very sound and in good order. A signature of the Fury is the bold flash that sweeps from the tip of the front fenders through the tail fins – trimmed in stainless steel with a gold textured alloy insert. These unique trim parts are all in excellent order on both sides of the car. Other features that set this Fury apart include a gold grille, dual exterior mirrors, smooth-style wheel covers with gold accents, and wide-whitewall bias ply tires for the proper stance and handling characteristics.
Opening the big doors reveals the stylish interior, finished in tan vinyl and fabric upholstery. The interior is believed to be original, with superb seats, carpets, and interior panels. The dash features more bright stainless and chrome trim set into a brown upholstered fascia, with the original instruments, radio and two-tone steering wheel in place. The enormous trunk has plenty of room for a full size spare wheel and a week’s worth of luggage. The original rubber trunk mat is still in place, though it is showing some cracking from age.
Beneath the hood rests the original “FP31” coded 318 cubic inch V8, which was the standard engine for the high-performance Fury, and exclusive to the Plymouth line for 1957 and 1958. With its dual carburetors, this special V-800 version is rated for a healthy 290 horsepower, helping the Fury live up to its name. The engine bay of our featured car is remarkably well-preserved, with many original decals and labels still intact. Correct silver and gold paint is in good order, and the engine appears tidy and orderly while showing signs of consistent use and proper service.
It is very rare to encounter a 1957 Plymouth Fury in such well-preserved, unrestored condition as this car. It has lived a charmed life in the hands of a dedicated enthusiast, and it is ready for its next caretaker to enjoy in AACA events, club-level shows, or touring in impeccable style and comfort.
