Let's get a grip.  Who knows what the factory actually made.  (A few 
years back a 1960 300F, 4 speed convertible was discovered, prior to 
that, only the 7 hardtops were know to exist.) On the cover of the 
58 Plymouth brochure is a 
red and white Belvedere. I am sure many of those were produced. And 
I am sure there were some with the GC 350 option.  Which included 
the heavy duty suspension and the GC wheels.  As for Stephen King 
picking a red Fury, Fury sounds better for a killer car than 
belvedere or impala or fairlane.  And red is a good killer car 
color.  I was called by the production company making Christine and 
I got the impression they didn't care what the pedigree of the 58 
Plymouth was, they just wanted cars.  I offered to rent a couple of 
mine, but they only wanted to buy.  I did rent mine to the 
movie "Cat's Eye a year or so later.
