Regular readers of this space for the past five years probably won’t be surprised to hear that this 1977 Plymouth Fury Sport was one of my favorite entries in this summer’s “A Tasteless Car Show” in West Seneca. And before you get the wrong idea, it was called “tasteless” because originally the car show was to be part of the annual Taste of West Seneca foodie event held annually behind Town Hall. Due to the ongoing pandemic the “Taste” part was cancelled, but the car show went on. The ’77 Fury was Plymouth’s mid-sized entry, borrowing the nameplate that formerly adorned Plymouth’s top-of-the-line full-sized cars, which over the years slowly slid down the ladder with the advent of the Sport Fury (1964), VIP (1966), and Fury Gran/Gran Fury (1972). For MY 1975 all of the big cars were Gran Furys while the intermediates took the Fury moniker, replacing the Satellite in the lineup. The Fury Sport hardtop coupe was its top-seller that year, with 30,075 being produced.
