Yes they are dead sexy! Problem is limited availability in 14 inch tires.
The VIP was a top line trim level to compete against the Chevy Caprice and the Ford Galaxie LTD.
Being a luxury model the 15 inch disc brake wheel covers will also look great on this car.
My three favorite slab sides are the 1965 Chrysler 300L, 1966 Dodge Monaco 500 and the 1968 Fury VIP. Yours is just stunning and has an excellent interior and the engine is the one I would want. Congratulations!
VIP = Very Important Plymouth. A trim package option that ran from '66 to '69 to try to compete with Chevy and Ford's new models, Caprice and LTD. As I recall sales weren't very good, kinda rare to see vs. numerous Caprice and LTD's (Lum Tee Dums) Wife had a '71...
I was 16 in 1968, got my drivers licence in March. That summer I made lawns and walkways for the manager of Bayside Chrysler Dodge in Barhurst. The deal was $1.00 an hour plus a car (with gas) to drive. For a few days I drove a '68 VIP! It had almost every option except air conditioning which was not popular in New Brunswick at that time. The sticker was still in the rear window! That car still holds a special place in my soul! That was really a big boost for my ego! You have a very beautiful car- I'm glad for you, but I must admit, I'm just slightly jealous! Lindsay
