The full sized Dodge that came down the Windsor Ontario plant shared the line with the Fury models.> The interior of 67 and 68 Monaco’s in Canada were that of a (US?) Sport Fury (aside from the dash).
I'm not sure I follow that. Were the interior trim panels, arm rests or door handles different? Different patterns or fabrics for the seat covers?
The Dodges were built for Canadian market and Chrysler Canada still had to source Canadian parts.
So they intalled Fury door panels and seats in the Dodges.
Polara 500 got Fury I interior, Polara got Fury II Interior, Base Monaco,Fury III and Monaco 500 got Sport Fury.
Despite the signing of the Autopact agreement in 1965, it took a few years where it was feasible for car makers to build/send cars and parts across the border.
Even up to 1970, even some US built Monaco's were Canadian spec'd as per fender tag and got Fury interiors.
The Canadian car market was different that that of the U.S. at the time.
Here is an educational video on the Canadian car market.
