Title: 1957-1959 Plymouth Fury - Best Plymouth Ever?

The 1957-1959 Plymouth Fury was one of the most legendary cars that Plymouth produced. It Fury introduced America to low, wide, and long automobile styling which would become the cornerstone of American cars during the 1960s decade.

Poster Comment:

Style-wise, Plymouth was way ahead of Chevy and Ford in 1957.

"Suddenly It's 1960!" was Plymouth's advertising ad slogan. The lower, wider profile and epic tail fins must have seemed futuristic and alien (in a good way.)

The '57 Chevy style (though considered "classic" now) at the time was boxy, stodgy, pedestrian and stone-age in comparison to the '57 Plymouth Fury. My aunt owned a loaded '58 Dodge with "push-button" gear box. Though close in style I didn't like it.

Ford caught up a bit in '58 (it's "square" T-Bird was epic and IMO the best styling of the 1950s), but in relying on the Edsel for the next few years, it screwed up. The rest of Ford's lineup seemed pedestrian compared to Plymouth and Dodge. (I did like Lincoln's styling.)

It took GM and Chevy until '59 to catch up style-wise. Buick and Pontiac were separate divisions and made huge styling strides.

Chrysler's 57-59 drive train, engine and power were also far superior. Too back quality control issues of terrible rust sabotaged 57-59 Plymouth and Chrysler products (included Dodge, Desoto, and flagship Chrysler.)

My father bought a white '58 four-door back in '66. IMO the 1958 was the best looking. (The '57 had mock quad-headlights; The '58 was the first year all four headlights were real. The '59 truck made it seem too formal for me.

Funny how an eight year old car back then was considered "nearly done."

The bad news, the '57-'59 entire Chrysler lineup with its outrageous tailfins (especially the Desoto) got real old looking, real fast.

Dealer Promo Film: 1957 Chrysler Imperial (and New Yorker) vs Cadillac 62 model (Handling and features.)

Again, Chrysler caught GM flat-footed.

Imperial looked modern and handled and performed better. This Caddy was still looking like an early 1950s model with its high, boxy profile.

Slant six was bad-ass also. Engine always outlasted the car. You couldn't kill them.

Girlfriend had one. She nearly killed me.

Here's another Chrysler dealer promo, this a comparison of the elegant '58 Imperial vs Cadillac.

The Cadoo division must have gotten riled up because in the next few years they made up a lotta ground. But not Chevy.

IMO, from '59 through the early 60s both Pontiac divisions dominated Dodge and Plymouth in car style, haing cleaner lines. Desoto looked too much like the big Chrysler so it was dropped.

Strangely, the mid-sized Rambler actually took third place by 1959.

Lincoln -- what a wild car from 58-60 began to look the most "modern" of luxury "the Big Three" by 1961.

Nope. That slant-six was indestructible, wasn't it?

Valiant/Dart was one oddly styled bird. There was an old used Valient buried deep in the nearby Buick lot that as teens we used to hang out and party in if necessary. No key necessary AND the radio worked.

Girlfriend had one. She nearly killed me.

Aaah, good times, eh? :-)
