1960 saw Plymouth’s top-of-the line Fury enter it’s second generation. It was also the year that all Chrysler cars (except Imperial) started using the new “Unibody” construction.
At the rear of the Full-size Plymouths the styling was similar to the previous couple of years, albeit with even bigger fins – quite the opposite of what the rest of Detroit was doing! Well, we call them fins but Plymouth were calling them “stabilizers“.
1960 saw the end of the “Sport Fury” – for now anyway – bringing the Fury to the top-of-the-line once more. Here’s an excellent example in Sky Blue with Caribbean Blue inserts on the front fender.
Inside, Fury interiors feature a deeply-contoured effect on the doors and had a choice of seat colors that included; blue, green, red, caramel and turquoise.
The driver’s seat enjoyed a “High Tower” seat back designed to offer greater comfort.
The Fury came with a 318 cubic inch V-800 engine as standard. It was equipped with a 2-barrel carburetor and was rated at 230 horsepower.
An additional $199 was spend on a TorqueFlite automatic (push-button) transmission rather than the standard 3-speed manual.
Plymouth produced 55,487 Furys during the 1960 model year with 7,080 of them being convertibles. Prices started at $2,967. Options like power steering and power brakes would have cost buyers around $77 and $43 respectively.
