Plymouth Fury “Christine”
Plymouth Fury “Christine”
Lots of cars appear in movies but only a few of them get the leading role. Stephan King's Christine is among the most famous one. She is the antagonist in the author's novel of the same name and is also a possessed, supernatural 1958 Plymouth Fury. Back in the day, this car scared us a lot. Now it is only a source of enjoyment for our petrol hearts. Thanks to the sleek and minimal Plymouth Fury “Christine” art print by artist Dziugas Valancauscas we have this beauty hanging on our wall as well.
A scary story peeps behind this sleek Plymouth Fury art
Stephen King explains that he chose Plymouth Fury as the main character of Christine because of the intense anger emitted by the car's name. They use 24 cars in total during the shooting of the film. The movie producers place announcements all over the country they are buying 1958 Plymouths.
Along with the actual Furys, they buy a few Belvedere and Savoy models and paint them red and white. If you look closely, you will notice that the “Fury” model designation misses from the car's tailfin. One of the most interesting aspects of Christine Plymouth story is the fact that the 1958 model actually doesn't offer the red on white colour scheme.
This particular Plymouth Fury is part of the famous “Forward Look” design program of Virgil Exner. It is a huge success. On top of this, Plymouth Fury is definitely a fast car.
Equipped with 350 V8 engine (available for the first and only model year), Fury is capable of acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.7 seconds. This is way faster than competitors like Chevrolet Impala and Ford Fairlane. Some of the engines have even an electronic injection by Bendix. Unfortunately, they prove unreliable and force Plymouth to replace them with two 4-barrel carburettors.
