Hot August Nights 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Convertible

We bought a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Convertible on eBay from Salem Indiana that had not run for several years, similar to the car I had when I graduated High School in 1962. I scurried trying to get it running and safe to drive to Hot August Nights in Reno Nevada for 2010. The paint job is 28 years old but shined up nicely. What a blast from the past, we had a ball....

1957 Plymouth Fury
1957 Plymouth Fury Typically when you think tail fins you picture 57 Chevys and vintage Cadillac's. Well once you lay your eyes on this classic that will change. This 1957 Plymouth Fury utilizes some of the coolest tail fins ever designed. The car has that classic 50s look and combines it with an overall toughness that is hard to describe. It may look like a classic 50's cruiser but with the dual quad 318 under the hood this car was known for performance. Just over 7,000 of these cars were made but despite that number you rarely ever see them. The 2 door hardtop body is coated in Sand Dune White which is the only color scheme these cars ever received. This is combined with stainless and gold trim for an awesome look from the side. The tall triangle taillights are incorporated into the fins and will have anybody following you down the road drooling. All of the chrome is cleanly mounted in place and has a mirror like finish. The glass is in great shape and is all topped with a slight tint. The car rides on the original wheels and hubcaps which are fitted with wide white wall tires. Powering the car is the factory dual 4 barrel 318 V8 motor that runs very well. Every component in place has a nice finish and has the stock style paint. It is one of those motors that doesn't need a bunch of chrome to look cool. The original style Gold air cleaners are incredibly unique and even parts like the factory power brake Booster grab your attention. The car was also fitted with factory steering so if you had one of these in 57 you were definitely cruising in style. Mated to the motor is the original push button Torqueflite transmission which is a very neat feature to operate. The car starts up well and settles into a nice smooth rumble provided via the dual Exhaust. The interior of this classic is done in a combination of white and beige. The upholstery and interior components are immaculate transporting you back to the 50's when you step inside. Things like the original gauges and steering wheel just go to show how much time went into designing cars back in the day. A lot of the interior knobs, switches and buttons are done in gold giving it a nice touch of class. The original radio is also in place and working properly. Search around online and you will see these cars don't come up for sale very often so don't wait around too long to come check it out in person!

1956 Plymouth Savoy In The Snow
This is my 56 Plymouth that I bought to fix up and sell, but in the meantime I like to have fun with it. It has the old flathead 6 and the manual three speed tranny on the column. Pretty amazing that this thing starts right up and drives around even when its 15 degrees out. A lot of Morons like to make comments about this video since I DRIVE it, in the video. Maybe you can troll a video thats actually stupid.





57 Tulsa buried 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Boyd Coddington
Tulsa Story :This is a video pictorial of the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that was buried in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 15, 1957 as a time capsule. It was uncovered 50 years later on June 15, 2007. I was hoping to see a pristine version of "Miss Belvedere", but as it turned out, the vault leaked and filled with water, causing much damage to the automobile. As a car enthusiast, I watched the story develop over the past few years. I waited and watched it live online as she was extracted from the ground. When I saw the rust-colored dirt and muck on her, I had a bad feeling about her condition. I wish the person who won this car (by guessing the closest to the town's actual 2007 population back in 1957) could have it restored, but that would be a massive undertaking. On the other hand, she should get a chance to dance again! I hope you enjoy the video, along with some before, during, and after photos. update the winner of this car was Raymond Humbertson died in 1979 he was Marine and a Korean War veteran he has 2 sisters who may inherit he car Thanks, Chris Miss Belvedere Moves On By Old Cars Weekly After spending nearly 50 years quietly rusting beneath the Tulsa County Courthouse lawn, the 1957 Plymouth Belvedere affectionately known as "Miss Belvedere," is on the road once again. Don't get too excited, when she rolled out of Tulsa earlier today, it wasn't under her own power—she was whisked out of town in the back of a truck. After months of legal wrangling to establish ownership of what is clearly the most famous "finned" Mopar in the world (yes, even more famous than Stephen King's "infamous" Christine), Miss Belvedere has begun her journey to New Jersey — and possibly a rust-free future. Levada Humbertson Carney and Catherine Humbertson Johnson, elderly sisters from Maryland, will officially take possession of the Belvedere as beneficiaries of their brother Raymond Humbertson who won the car as part of a contest held back in 1957. Buried with the car was a time capsule containing people's guesses as to what the population of Tulsa would be in 2007. Included among the hundreds of guesses, was one made by Raymond Humbertson of Cumberland, Md., who died in 1979. His guess was only 2,286 off the actual census numbers, closer than any other entry. Assisting the cars elderly owners will be Levada Carney's son Robert Carney and Dwight Foster, President of the UltraOne Corporation. As you will recall, as part of this ongoing saga, New Jersey-based UltraOne, manufacturer of a line of rust removal products, will now begin the pain-staking process of de-rusting and preserving what remains of the rusty relic. According to Robert Carney, the car, which suffers from extensive damage after being submerged in conditions described as a "watery grave" for an unknown number of years, may eventually be able to take to the road under her own power. Once Miss Belvedere arrives in New Jersey she will undergo a lengthy cleansing and rust removal process that her new owners and the folks at UltraOne hope will stabilize the car before sealing it with a clear-coat designed to halt the rusting process. "We will not be restoring the car but preserving her for the future," Mr. Foster told the Tulsa World. "We have to stop the rust, because if nothing is done, this car will be dust in two years." According to the UltraOne Web site, future plans for Miss Belvedere could include a second Tulsa unveiling and a tour around the country for special events. Following the tour, the car's future remains unclear. However, it has speculated that the car could find her way to the Barrett-Jackson auction block in Scottsdale in the coming years. we will miss you the legend Boyd Coddington,

Will it Run? Episode Nine: 1962 Plymouth Belvedere
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this horrible 1962 Plymouth; can we get it to move again? It had been completely disassembled and left outside for many years. The engine is seized, and the budget for repairs is zero, as usual. Some unique problems, with it being a push button automatic, and trying to jam in a later- model engine... Its a bit longer than my other vids, I hope you like it! No more music, as per viewer requests. Thanks everyone for watching, commenting, and subscribing! More to come!
