brakes at the moment (about to convert it to disc) and a dead battery or I

1955 PLYMOUTH PLAZA, ORIGINAL SURVIVOR 4- DOOR
HERE'S A GOOD RESTORATION PROJECT. THIS PLYMOUTH HAS A GOOD INTERIOR WITH
THE SEATS COVERED IN PLASTIC BUT THE STEERING WHEEL IS WELL WORN. A RADIO
BLANK IS VISIBLE ON THE DASH SO THIS CAR DID NOT COME WITH AN OPTIONAL
RADIO. THE ORIGINAL TWO-TONE PAINT IS IN GOOD CONDITION. HERE IS A GOOD
EXAMPLE OF A COMMON PLYMOUTH SEDAN FROM THE MID-FIFTIES.
Unrestored 1956 Plymouth Wagon "Sharkey" Start-Up.
The jingle when I open the hood is the plymouth script falling off.
Chrysler corp justified fins because they may improve aerodynamic stability
at speeds over 70 mph. With todays higher speed limits and influx of mass
number of cars on the roads, perhaps they should reintroduce the fins for
function as opposed to style in the 50's. This original wagon is a future
project of mine, that I cannot show in action, as she has no brakes, but I
did drive her to this present location last year at 40 mph on the highway
(good thing it was mostly up-hill). If you crave to enjoy other vintage
machinery in motion, then motor on over to my channel and also learn of the

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,
