...touting "Suddenly it's 1960!". I heard that when the '60 Plymouths came out, people were ragging on it saying "suddenly it's 1957!"
The sad thing about the '61 Plymouth is that just about all of it's ugliness resides up front in its "face". Otherwise, the body's actually not that bad. Just reinforces my theory though, that they started making Plymouths look ugly on purpose so that people would spend a few more bucks on a Coronet or Dart!
Okay, I felt a small twinge of regret posting that particular car since it's probably the only '61 Plymouth that won't make you lose your lunch. The Fury's extra trim seems to help define the car's lines better so it doesn't look so melted. And the camera angles and backgrounds are more flattering than the usual amateur photos. But trust me, the one I pass about once a month in a neighboring city is much more typical, and it's ugly enough to scare small children. And I won't even mention the sedans.
...I still think the '61 is the ugliest thing that Plymouth ever made! They started losing it in '59, got pretty hideous in '60, but '61 is still the low point. I know most people consider 1958-59 Detroit's low point in general, but to me, '61 is Chrysler's low point!
