I thought the Plymouth's only had 2 headlights, not 4.

There was basically something different about them almost every year.

"Gran Fury" was the full size w/dual headlights,but they also had the Fury I-II-III versions with quads like this one at least part of the year.(like a '74,but a different grille)Then they had the 1st year "mid size" Fury,too? (The former Satellite)

In 1975, all the full-sized Furys were called "Gran Fury", while what had been the Satellite/Sebring intermediate was renamed "Fury". I forget the exact names, but the Gran Fury had a 3-level hierarchy along the lines of "Gran Fury", "Gran Fury Custom" and "Gran Fury Custom Brougham". Or, something like that!

4 headlights were used on the base model, single headlights were used on the top level model, but I can't remember what the mid-level model used. For 1976, all Gran Furys went to the 2-headlight setup.

Dodge did a similar thing with the big Monaco/Royal Monaco. 4 exposed headlights on the base model in '75, hidden headlights on the top model, but I can't remember what they did for the mid-level. And then in '76, they all went to hidden headlights.

I think the single headlamp models were called Gran Fury Brougham.

After a bit of research:
The single headlamp front end was unique to the Gran Fury Brougham.
Both the Gran Fury and Gran Fury Custom used the dual lamp set-up in '75.
(The Gran Fury Custom was dropped for the 1977 season.)
