Chris Hahn grew up spending a lot of his childhood inside a Plymouth police car. It wasn’t a proclivity to be a social nuisance that landed him there, but rather a family member’s occupation. “My uncle was a sergeant with the Elmhurst Police department and I can remember getting rides in his car as a child,” Hahn said.
In addition to these fond memories, it was also Chrysler’s design that caught his attention. Hahn, who now lives in southern Illinois in Golconda, always wanted a mid 1960s Fury because it was Chrysler’s first attempt at what became known as “Coke Bottle”‘ styling — smaller up front, growing larger and higher toward the rear deck.
“It turned out to be a hit. When I saw a friend’s restored example, I knew I had to do a car similar to his.”
