The Plymouth Gran Fury first became a model on its own in 1975, being a corporate clone to the full-size C-body Dodge Royal Monaco and Chrysler Newport/New Yorker. The Gran Fury name was also used briefly on the full-size R-body in 1980, and again on the mid-size M-body in 1982.

1st Generation (1975-1977)Edit

The full-sized C-body Plymouth Fury was an all new model in 1974, along with the Dodge Monaco and Chrysler Newport/New Yorker. When the smaller B-body Plymouth Satellite was discontinued after 1974, it was replaced by a restyled Fury in 1975, and the previous full-size C-body Fury now became the Gran Fury (the previous C-body Dodge Monaco became the Royal Monaco). The Gran Fury's styling differed from its brethren by having dual headlights versus the quads on the Dodge and Chrysler C-bodies, but they all shared the same 121.5" wheelbase (124" for the wagon models). Gran Furys were available in coupe, sedan and wagon models in various trims. Base engine was the 5.2L 318 cid V8, with the 5.9L 360, 6.6L 400 and 7.2L 440 cid plants optional. The Gran Fury was fairly popular with police and taxi fleets but they were never a big seller, especially compared to its Ford and GM competition. The Gran Fury was dropped along with the Royal Monaco after 1977.

2nd Generation (1980-1981)Edit

The Gran Fury name reappeared again on the full-size R-body that was introduced a year earlier in 1979, which included the Dodge St. Regis (which replaced the Monaco) and Chrysler Newport/New Yorker. This time the Gran Fury was an identical twin to the Chrysler Newport instead of the Dodge, indistinguishable at more than 5 feet away (it was, in fact, merely a Newport with a Plymouth Gran Fury nameplate on it).
