The Plymouth full-size models were all new for 1969. The Fuselage design was applied for the first time and the boxy look of previous years was gone. Most visible change up front were the dual headlamps now residing in a horizontal arrangement instead of on top of each other like in 1968. The sloping line of the rear window gave the whole car a more elegant look. Inside, the new cockpit-style dashboard not only picked up on the aircraft-inspired Fuselage theme but was also stylish and practical.

Again in 1969, the full-sized Plymouths were called the Furys. For the last time, the VIP resided on top of the line. Next in rank was the Sport Fury which shared its special grille with the VIP. Both had the 318 cui V8 engine as base powerplant.

Below that, there was the Fury III and the lesser Fury II and I. Station wagon buyers could chose between the Fury Sport Suburban, Custom Suburban and Suburban. Sport Furys and Fury III's could be had as convertibles.

While the Fury I and Fury II came standard with the slant six engine, they could also be had with more powerful powerplants, up to a 375 hp 440 cui V8.

The new styling of the 1969 Furys didn't really catch on with buyers. Model year sales reached 352,844 units, equalling the previous year's output.
