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.

First we had to do some cleaning... :-)
Heute ist es soweit! Wir sind in Kaufdorf und holen den 1957er Plymouth
Belvedere ab, den ich dort bei der Auktion im September 2009 gekauft habe.
Zuerst mussten wir jedoch den gröbsten Schmutz runterkratzen...
Vielen Dank übrigens auch noch an die Idioten, die fast sämtliche
vorhandene Zierleisten, Schriftzüge und diverse Knöpfe gestohlen
haben...muss sowas eigentlich sein?

Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation

Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components,
structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several
good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell
Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch.

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...
