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
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
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

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
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
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.

Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced
by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production
was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States.
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features
such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929.
Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth
(along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat
dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded
for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden,
Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a
'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory
outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed
in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American
automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly
referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...

Listed in Darrell Davis' book of original Max Wedge serial numbers, this
car is one of only fourteen 426/4-speed Belvederes produced for the 1964
model year. If you're looking for a no-nonsense pavement pounder that's
fast, raw and ready to brawl, you've found your next heavyweight!
An extension of legendary designer Elwood Engel's modernist rescue of
Plymouth's increasingly eccentric product line, the firm's newly downsized
B-Body did almost as well on Chrysler's sale charts as it did on America's
drag strips and super speedways. This particular Belvedere, a Stage III Max
Wedge car sold new at Powell Plymouth in Jacksonville, Florida, was likely
ordered by an aspiring racer who whipped a few people on the street and
then settled into a life in the slow lane. Unlike the majority of these
badass Mayflower warriors, which were purchased almost exclusively for
sanctioned drag racing, this car has never had its front inner aprons cut
for Exhaust headers, never had a roll
cage installed, and never had its rear wheel wells tubbed for oversize drag
slicks. In fact, when this Plymouth's true heritage was discovered in the
late 1990s, the car had been mechanically and cosmetically transformed into
an all-steel, 90,000 mile slushbox special. Naturally its enlightened
savior knew he had something special, so he began a frame-off restoration
by welding in new floorpans from a clean donor car and hanging new quarters
from a high quality aftermarket supplier. Next, when a trademark aluminum
front end was finally located, it was re-skinned, thoroughly worked, and
perfectly aligned with its new body. And finally, after much parts research
and even more parts searching, a wet-looking coat of correct Chrysler code
P Ruby Red paint was buried in a thick clearcoat shell that shines like a
trophy on race day!
Gently lift this Plymouth's Ruby Red hood and you'll find an date-correct
Max Wedge V8 that wears an authentic 2406730-1 casting number, a December
(12) 10th (10) of 1963 (03) date stamp, and a 1964 V-series (V) Maximum
Performance (MP) High Compression (HC) 426 cubic inch (426) engine stamp.
Pushing a brutal 12.5 to 1 compression, and currently Dyno-ed at 486 horsepower and 469 lb./ft.
of torque, this Mopar monster has built a hard-fought reputation for being
one of the best competition motors ever created.
That high powered big block churns torque through a tough A833 4-speed
manual transmission to an original, factory-narrowed 8.75 rear end. During
the restoration that transmission, which is a correct piece that's dated
slightly after the car was assembled, received new bearings, new synchros,
a new clutch and pressure plate and a correct cast steel bellhousing. And
that rear end, which rides below original factory frame weights, was fitted
with a new Sure Grip differential and tall 4.10 gears. At the ends of that
stellar drivetrain, an original torsion bar front and leaf spring rear
suspension, which has been completely rebuilt from top to bottom, helps
increase both drivability and track times. At the sides of that stellar
drivetrain, original Max Wedge Exhaust
pipes whisk spent gases to either manual dumps or factory replacement turbo mufflers. And all this first rate
hardware proudly stands on a set of 14 inch body-matched steel wheels which
spin fresh 205/75 Hurst radials and 215/75 Hurst cheater slicks around
pristine stainless center caps.
Take a look inside the car and you'll find a spacious and airy environment
which has enough room to haul the whole family in comfort. Top dead center
is a pair of red bench seats that are lined with new padding, stitched with
NOS covers and accented by bright stainless trim. Below those seats, new
black carpet does an excellent job of highlighting the car's original, and
re-chromed, Hurst shifter. In front of those seats, a two-tone dash hangs a
silver '49 Plymouth-inspired instrument panel next to original radio and
heater deletes. And in front of the driver, a restored steering wheel spins
a red rim around a pristine chrome horn ring.
This aluminum-nosed Belvedere is a super cool piece of muscle car history
that's easy to imagine as the focal point of a sunny 60s track day. Call,
