Ex-Cop Car: 1978 Plymouth Fury

The seventh generation of Plymouth Fury will always remind me of the bad guys in TV shows like Rockford Files, Dukes of Hazzard, or Magnum PI. And a police spec version of the B-body Fury is particularly reminiscent of the three-piece suit wearing baddies who push around the show’s hero and end up going to jail or being consumed in the fire from a car crash. I might have canceled cable a decade ago, but I think I watched too much TV in the 80s. Find this 1978 Plymouth Fury offered for $8,100 in Conway, AR via eBay with one day to go.
