FEATURE: 1967 Plymouth Fury Police Car

This 1967 Plymouth Fury was restored as a police car.

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.”

  1. I remember building one of these out of a plastic kit from Johann, I made it to look like am NYPD car from the 60s. I painted it black green and, white and, it had NYPD decals. Be nice if I could afford one for real. Nice ride you have here though!
