Yes, you can technically call this Plymouth an old-timer. There is no question that it is a truly remarkable, decidedly classic automobile. However, as any expert on classic cars will tell you, the truly great vehicles have an element of timelessness to them. This car certainly doesn’t look like its glory days are long gone. Perhaps, it is existing in those moments at the moment of the piece itself. Perhaps, someone has restored it to show the cars of today what an original looks like. This classic piece of an iconic car is available as wall art, t-shirts, or as interior décor products.
About the car: The 1958 Belvedere two-door hardtop gained notoriety from the Stephen King movie Christine (1983). Christine was billed as a '58 Fury, but lacked the "buckskin beige" paint and gold trim that was standard on all Furys that year; instead it sported Belvedere trim (without Belvedere nameplates) and was painted "toreador red" with an "iceberg white" top. Plymouth collectors decried the cars that were destroyed or cut up in the making of the film; however it did give new life to the remaining Plymouths, shooting the value of the cars upward to many times their original worth.
