Written by Bill Phillips and based on Stephen King’s 1983 novel of the same name, the movie follows the changes in the lives of Arnie Cunningham, his friends, his family, and his teenage enemies after Arnie buys a classic Red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine, licence number CQB 241, that wreaks havoc on the life of its owner and those around him.

While a total of 24 Plymouth Fury were acquired for production, this was one of only two stunt cars in running condition used during filming. Coded “Muscle Two,” the stunt car was supposed to be crushed after the movie debuted, but was saved by current owner Martin Sanchez. He used parts from the other Christines to restore the car back to original condition.
