RE: [GFS] 318 in Christine



I agree with Dave.
Before the book was out, I received a call from the movie company
wanting to purchase one or more 1958 Fury's.  I was listed in the WPC
club roster as owning several at the time. The movie company had
acquired 2 cars, a Fury and a Belvedere.   He wouldn't tell me what the
movie was, just that it was from a book.  The book didn't come out until
a couple of months later.  He said they needed cars for a scene of a
production line from the 1950's.  I offered to rent the cars, but he
only wanted to buy, so I figured they would be destroyed.  The guy asked
me what was unique about the 1958 Fury, so I told him about the limited
production, the gold and the 350 engine.  I was glad to see the movie
used the Golden Commando 350 engine in the movie.  I didn't sell them
any.

I have an early draft of Christine (a reviewers/editors copy) and the
car was still a '58.  That was before the movie deal was made.

I also wanted to imform you that Christine was
originally supposed to be  1957 plymouth fury not a
'58. When the movie was to be made at the time they
could not find enough '57s ,so the car was changed to
a 58.
