    • No, a 1956 Plymouth V8 Power Flight would not be a Fury. The Plymouth Fury was a specific model introduced by Plymouth in 1956, but it was distinct from the standard Plymouth models of that year. If you had a 1956 Plymouth V8 Power Flight, it would likely be a Plymouth with a V8 engine and an automatic transmission (Power Flight), but it wouldn’t be the Fury model unless it was specifically labeled and marketed as such.
