1977 Plymouth Fury by CRWPitman 1977 Plymouth Fury by CRWPitman
Adobe Illustrator CS
I've always liked this car, possibly from watching them as police cars on TV in my childhood. I wanted it to be simplistic at first, and it got too detailled. But I did try to limit the colour palette - the body is (mostly) 5-6 colours, and the chrome work is another 4-5 colours.

In 1975, Chrysler moved the Fury nameplate to Plymouth's redesigned mid-size models that had previously been marketed as the Satellite. The full-sized Plymouth then became known as the Plymouth Gran Fury. The Gran Fury (not Grand Fury) was dropped after 1977, and the mid-sized models were dropped after 1978. There was no 1979 Fury, Gran or otherwise.

Continuing in 1980 a new R body Gran Fury emerged, it was an R body the same as the Dodge St. Regis and Chrysler Newport for 1980-1981. That body was discontinued in 1982 when they re-labeled the Dodge Diplomat with minor changes, into a new smaller Gran Fury through the 1989 model year. The engine sizes available were the Slant-6, 318, and 360 from 1980-1981, then they went to a 318 V8 with choice of 2 bbl or 4 bbl engines from 1982-1989. The 4 bbl was mostly picked for the Police package A38 models.

This is ACTUALLY a FURY, Gran Fury had round heallights and was way bigger than this car.

The detail is amazing. I have always wanted to attempt a vector 'portrait' of my car, but I always balk when I try to start it. Seeing pieces like this really inspires me to give it a go. I Love the chrome. Wow.

Those good old "B"- Bodies! They were as tough as nails, yet had a ride that was pretty serene, and then, believe it or not, actually handled well, too! Brakes and some of the automatic transmissions were the weak links. Those "vaned" wheels are achieved by utilizing a flexible polyurethane form that is fastened to a stock steel wheel! Then a polished aluminum trim ring and plated lug nuts and a bright center cap are added for the final touches. You're looking at the base root of a Cordoba, my friend! These "downsized" Fury models were also available with the fine, rich Corinthian Leather that Ricardo Montalban always played up with the more expensive Cordobas.

What an excellent vector, Craig!!! Your work is fantastic, as always! Worthy of a :+fav: !!! :)

Thanks! Craig sure does some mighty clean work! Sometimes I worry I may be spewing forth too much :blahblah: and am kind of depressed that my brain contains so much info that is so "next-to-useless"!

Hopefully, I am providing more entertainment than boredom!!! :)

Thanks! As a Side-Benefit (at NO extra charge!!!) :

I think I AM CERTAINLY MUCH LESS DISTRACTING than a pool-load of shapely bunnies playing and getting all wet... ummm, that sounded kind of naughty, didn't it???

Sorry! :)

Hah, no worries. Your information is more interesting than watching the Playboy Bunnies have a pool party.
