IMO the 1974-7 Gran Fury is the best of the post fuselage big cars -
cleanest, least gimmicky  styling, lightest.  Had a '77
Newport and didn't like it as much as the GF.

They just don't look enough like Chryslers to me.....that was the era of the government designing the cars instead of the designers.....

...which is why they look like Buicks and Chevys....

Although sometimes it was the other way around!!  - The '75 Buick
LeSabre front end looked virtually  identical to the '74 Dodge
Polara!!!  I kinda prefer a clean contemporary look to neo-classic
fake Benz hokum .. post fuselage, the '74/75 Plym and '74 Polara being
more of the former, and the '77 Newport with big fake radiator grille
being the latter...  I actuallty prefer the 74/5  Fury
quad  light  to the 76/7 single headlight GF with formal
stand up grille two that  I had... Guess that's why I really like
the fuseys with the loop bumpers - nothing looks more modern and
contemporary than a '71  Polara or Fury... timeless original 
designs, still my most favorite of all,  but that said,  the
'74 and up cars are more refined cars and drive better... the lack of
power excepted, thanks to the smog police!
