Loony Limo: Imagine the Fury

YO GRANNY'S LIMO: Remember the Plymouth Grand Fury? For anyone born after San Francisco’s Summer of Love, the Fury sedan may be just a fleeting, youthful memory. So we admit to gasping upon seeing this “model” of a Plymouth Grand Fury VIP Stretch. It’s not an actual limousine, so to us it looks like another disturbing limo fantasy. 

But we wonder, was there ever an actual Plymouth Fury Stretch, and what VIPs rode in them? Why would they want to? We can certainly understand the retro-cool of JFK-style limousines from that era, such as the Lincoln Continental stretch, but a Fury?! What amenities could a Fury possibly offer, other than bench-style seats and lap belts? And its carbon footprint probably would rival that of Sasquatch/Bigfoot. (Here’s another, more familiar Sasquatch, but we digress).

Fuel efficiency and aerodynamic styling obviously were not a priority four decades ago. We at LCT ask that if any of you have ever seen an actual Fury Stretch, or ridden in one, or even owned one as part of your fleet, please do not take offense. We’re only curious, and not here to make you, Furyious.
