The Fury models
Five Fury models were offered for 1972, including a Fury Gran Coupe, Fury Gran Sedan, Fury, I, Fury II, Fury III, and a Fury Wagon. The Fury was restyled this year and had a new wider rear track that enhanced its wide, low appearance. Each model had its own features to offer as well.
Fury Gran Sedan
The Fury Gran Sedan was produced as a four-door hardtop. It had a rear bumper applique for added protection. This bumper was resistant to both dents and scratches. The Fury Gran Sedan also featured a side molding made of vinyl that could minimize accidental dings in the doors. The side moldings were color-keyed and came in five different colors to give buyers the look they wanted.
Fury Gran Coupe
The Fury Gran Coupe could be purchased as a two-door formal hardtop or as a standard two-door hardtop. With both the formal hardtop and the standard hardtop, buyers could opt for a vinyl roof with five color choices. The Gran Coupe was not only luxurious, but was also one of the largest hardtop vehicles in the industry.
Interiors packed with features and value for the Gran Sedan and Gran Coupe
For the Gran Sedan and Gran Coupe, the interiors were luxurious and practical. As a standard, all models had all-vinyl bench seats with a split back. The seats had an arm rest in the center that would fold down when needed for relaxation. The all-vinyl seats were available in these colors: parchment, gold, green, blue, black, and tan. As an option on the Gran Coupe, buyers could order cloth-and-vinyl comfort seats. These came with individual adjustments for the seats, arm rests in the center, and a reclining seat on the passenger side. The package including these features was called the "Brougham" package. The colors available for the cloth-and-vinyl seats were gold, blue, green, and black.
Another interior Brougham package that was optional was the cloth-and-vinyl split bench seat package. These came with adjustable seats for each individual seat, a reclining seat for the passenger side, and individual arm rests. The colors available were black, green, blue, and gold for the Gran Sedan four-door model. All-vinyl bucket seats were an option for the Gran Coupe. These came in the colors of black, green, parchment, or blue.
The instrument panel for both the Gran Coupe and the Gran Sedan was elegant in itself. It was highlighted by burl grained walnut in a rich, simulated beauty with easy-to-use instruments. The instrument panel had flood lighting as well to make it easy to see day or night. Another feature of the interior was lovely carpeting covering the entire floor and even the sides of the doors on some models.
Fury II and I
The Fury II and Fury I were the most economical choices in 1972. Both models offered many features that made them durable automobiles as a standard. They had desirable standard equipment such as an automatic transmission, keyless door locking, ventless side glass, power steering, tires of the bias-belted type, an ignition system with anti-theft properties that would lock up the ignition and steering column when the key was removed, and many other great features. There were many options for these models as well.
The Fury II was available as a four-door sedan and a two-door hardtop. The Fury I was available as a four-door sedan.
