1975 Plymouth Fury - Huge. The new small.

Looking for a small car? Consider the 1975 Plymouth Fury. You may also want to consider purchasing a small town to park it in.
Well, why be so hard on 1975? What did it know about small cars? Considering what had come before it, the Fury was kind of smallish, I guess. It's probably longer than an Escalade, but I can't be sure. The research team had trouble finding the exact length of the Fury. Maybe Alert Reader Craigf has it memorized? According to the Wikipedia page on the Fury, the '75 model had a wheelbase 4 inches shorter than the previous version (115 inches for the coupe in the ad). For comparison, a 2011 Cadillac Escalade's wheelbase is 116 inches.

It's nice looking. I really like the white vinyl interior. Will someone in power please make the car manufacturers bring back white interiors? I'll be waiting in my office.

The real attraction in this ad is the smiling couple who, according to the plaid-trousered husband, are "waiting for a car that looks good...". Well, you oughta know.

I'll be passing around a basket of Plymouth Fury PNGs. Please  take one and pass it around. Big and small, left and right. get your rude finger ready to right click them into the garage on your hard drive.

Fury two-door overall length: 213.8 inches
Fury four-door overall length: 217.9 inches

We're not going to talk about overall length for furries, though.

There was a time when you could buy a car with a red, blue, green, orange or yellow interior, too.

We're getting better, I think, but I was really depressed in the era where all you could get was Battleship Infirmary Gray or Hearing Aid Beige.

PS: The Fury was still a boat.

PPS: Baby Clothes. New Oldsmobiles are in early this year.

Hah! Yep. "This place has EVERYthing." The longest current Escalade model is 222 inches long - barely two inches longer than the Fury. Wowzers!

I would love it if my Hyundai Genesis Coupe were orange with a white interior!

Thanks for the info, guys!
