It was Fury by name and fury by nature for the 1958 two-door from Plymouth, because while it looked like it had more style than substance, it was quicker than most in its day. Furys had always been fitted with Chrysler's biggest powerplant available since their launch in 1956, and the 1957 cars' 318ci (5.2-liter) engine disappeared after a year to be replaced by a more powerful 350ci (5.7-liter) V8. The Fury got the reputation for being Detroit's best-handling car in 1957, and this was mostly down to Chrysler's new-for-1957 'Torsion Air Ride' suspension which had longitudinal torsion bar springs up front. The design was so good it lasted through until 1980 in the Volaire. The car handled well also because it had a low center of gravity due to the car's low stance. Styling was typical for the era, with high fins on the rear, wraparound front and rear windshields, and pillarless side windows.
