Stephen King is definitely NOT a true car guy.
I have read (and own) the book of Christine, and you wouldn't believe how many things King got wrong in the book about what a true '58 Plymouth Fury was!
I will name off the things that I remember from the book that were wrong (I might not get them all), so, here it is, according to what Stephen King thinks is a '58 Fury:

King: Christine was a 4- door.
Correct: 2-door.

King: Christine had a Hydramatic floorshift automatic transmission.
Correct: Plymouth had Torqueflite automatic pushbutton transmissions. GM had the Hydramatic floorshift automatic transmissions.

King kept on saying numerous times throughout the book, he kept on changing what engine Christine had in her.

King: Christine had a door-opener where you pushed your thumb down on a button just below the handle.
Correct: Of course, this is not true. Christine has a special-type of door-opener, just I don't know the correct name for it...

King: "All 4 (she was supposedly a 4-door) of Christine's lock buttons went down"
Correct: although this is shown in the movie as well (except for being a 4- door instead of 2), it isn't true. Christine has a special way you lock the 2 doors- you rotate the interior door-opener.

King: Christine was a 4- wheel drive.
Correct: this, of course, is not true, Christine was rear-wheel drive, ONLY!

As you can see, King definitely was not a true car guy. Hee! Hee!

Hopefully, no offense to anyone! Very Happy

---Jackie.
