The Mecum auction house in January 2020 will hold the toga for the sale of Plymouth Fury 1958 production year. It was this coupe that participated in the filming process of the horror film “Christina” in 1983, which is based on the book of the same name by Stephen King.

This Plymouth Fury was used for close-up shots. After removing the tape, the compartment with all the other details was played in the lottery, which became part of the film’s advertising campaign. About 40 thousand people took part in it: a certain Scott Edminster became the owner of the car.

After several restoration work and a change of ownership, this car was preserved in excellent condition. The car is still equipped with an exclusive speedometer, marked up to 150 mph (241 km / h), number plates from the tape and ominous tape recorders that served as the voice of the car. To make everyone afraid, there is a sticker “Watch out for me.” On the rear chrome bumper. I am pure evil. I’m Kristina”.

 The Plymouth Fury is powered by a 5.2-liter V8 engine with two carburetors of 294 hp. The engine works in conjunction with a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive system.

  As noted in Mecum, this Plymouth Fury is the only car that has documents confirming participation in the filming of the film “Christina.” From 400 to 500 thousand dollars are going to help out for such a car.
