Plymouth Belevedere

The 1957 model year had high sales for the Chrysler Corporation, and for the Plymouth line. Plymouth's design was so revolutionary that Chrysler used the slogan "Suddenly, it's 1960!" to promote the new car. The Belvedere line once again included the Fury. This year a new 277/292/309/320 in3 V8 with dual four-barrel carburetors was the standard engine in the Fury, and it was available on all Plymouths. The Belvedere would once again return as a top level trim for 1958. Styling was a continuation from the sleek 1957 models. A big block "B" engine of 350 in3 V8 with dual four-barrel carburetors dubbed "Golden Commando" was optional on all models. The convertible was only available in the Belvedere model between 1956 and 1958. The 1958 Belvedere two-door hardtop gained notoriety from the Stephen King movie Christine (1983). Christine was billed as a '58 Fury, but lacked the "buckskin beige" paint and gold trim that was standard on all Furys that year; instead it sported Belvedere trim (without Belvedere nameplates) and was painted "toreador red" with an "iceberg white" top. Plymouth collectors decried the cars that were destroyed or cut up in the making of the film; however it did give new life to the remaining Plymouths, shooting the value of the cars upward to many times their original worth. #American #Automobile #Belvedere #Chrysler #plymouth
