1958 Plymouth Fury e small

Unlike the 1984 movie, the 1958 Plymouth Fury in Stephen King’s book “Christine” was actually described as a four-door in almost every reference.  The author did not distinguish whether it was a sedan with pillars between the doors, or whether it was a hardtop sedan model with no door posts (shown above).  We’ll assume it was a hardtop model, simply because they look so much better.
