It was rare, but there were 4 speed C bodies. The car you mention could have existed as it would have been available, at least in some years.

I know for a fact that the 1968 Fury had a 4 gear option; even in the 4 door sedans. I rode in one with the 440 Magnum, 4 spd, and probably no other options beyond what were mandated with the engine (15" wheels, oversized brakes, front swaybar, etc.) back ca. 1980 in California. This particular car was the Fury II model in that ugly pea green color.

4 door Plymouth Furys with 4 speed manual transmissions are definitely factory. I think there are some guys on the C-body Dry Dock that have 4 speed manual transmission Furys but some of them are also 2 door cars with that feature. Among the C-body crowd, these are desirable cars even if few in the Mopar hobby thinks so as C-bodies have long been the Rodney Dangerfield of Mopars, though I see signs that that attitude in the Mopar mags is finally starting to change a bit.

Funny because certain C bodies are getting a following like the 1972 Ply Fury, 1969 Dodge Polara and a few others amongst the police car crowd; especially the 440 Magnum cars. :)

I'm not talking police cars. I'm talking about respect for those thousands of civilian cars like some of the Furys I grew up riding around in and later driving. The cars whose big block engines would end up in more "popular" cars. :)

In all fairness: that same thing happened with other big 4 doors an station wagons as well like 396-427 Chevy Impalas and 428 powered big Fords/Mercurys. Not so much the B-O-P cars with their 400+ CID motors probably due to fewer smaller B-O-P's built/saved as recipients vs. Chevelles, Camaros and Novas. .
