CHRISTINE ORIGINAL PAINTING
1958 PLYMOUTH FURY
1983 film directed by John Carpenter and based on the novel by Stephen King stars a blood red 1958 Plymouth Fury who has a will of her own and a very jealous heart.
In ‘58 Furys only came in one color scheme: “Sandstone White” with a “Buckskin Beige” interior. In the story, Christine’s original owner ordered her with the custom paint scheme. The base Fury featured a 318 V8 engine with twin 4-barrel carburetors. While the 318 offered 290 hp, buyers could opt for a more powerful 350 V8 called the Golden Commando which produced 305 hp. Some owners spent the extra cash for a very rare 315 hp fuel injected 350.
23 cars were used, sixteen for filming and seven for parts. Only three remained unscathed. Some close up scenes used a “dummy” front attached to a bulldozer. Regeneration scenes utilized rubber parts molded from the originals and hydraulic jacks.
Painted using ink and acrylics, the art is on heavy Bristol board will make a great addition to any space.
