If you're in the market for a super-clean street bruiser that you can play
with and travel in for years to come, jump behind the wheel of this
incredibly priced Plymouth!
This slick coupe's high quality, frame-up restoration began with what
appears to be a solid, damage-free body. That body's panels were
painstakingly stripped, sanded and massaged to better-than-showroom
condition. Once those massaged panels were correctly aligned, and the car's
intimidating ambiance fully reconstructed, a smooth coat of Chrysler FE5
two-stage was laid under a correct transverse stripe. And the result is an
ultra-straight, fully sorted pavement pounder that inspires comments and
elicits stares every time it hits the road!
Make good use of the aforementioned hood pins and you'll find a 400 cubic
inch Chrysler B block that, thanks to a complete rebuild, looks as natural
as a Superbird in winner's circle. Oxygen whips through the car's 'Air
Grabber' hood to a Hemi Orange cleaner that feeds a big Holley carburetor
and beefy Weiand intake. At the front of that intake, an MSD Pro-Billet
distributor translates MSD 6AL-2 spark into fire for MSD Super Conductor
plug wires. At the sides of that distributor, Edelbrock Performer RPM heads
hang cast valve covers and a new Edelbrock breather over coated, long-tube
headers. Cooling is supplied by a correct Chrysler radiator, which utilizes
pliable hoses, an aluminum water pump and simple squeeze clamps to send
water past fresh V-belts, rebuilt ancillaries and a reproduction Mopar
This Plymouth's chassis specs leave little question as to why Chrysler's
B-body architecture was such a huge hit with performance car fans. Take a
step under our lift and you'll find a tough ol' stoplight skeleton that
still wears a thick layer of undercoating. Behind the thumpin' B block, a
rugged A833 4-speed twists a familiar Chrysler 8.75-inch rear end around
streetable, 3.23 gears. Below that proven drivetrain, a heavy duty front
torsion bar and rear leaf suspension includes factory power steering, a
correct sway bar and manual front disc and rear drum brakes. And power
flows to the pavement through familiar, 15-inch Rallye wheels, which spin
235/60 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs in front of 255/60 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs.
When you open this Road Runner's solid doors, you'll find a cockpit where
legendary Mopar power melds seamlessly with a stylish, no-nonsense driving
environment. At the center of the car's floors, firm front bucket and rear
bench seats have been stuffed with fresh padding and topped with correct
silver-piped and Plymouth-embossed covers. The car's expertly restored dash
hangs rebuilt factory gauges beside a correct Chrysler Solid State radio.
In front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel spins a silver horn
ring around a cool Road Runner centerpiece. And behind the cockpit, a fully
restored trunk is authentic to its refurbished jack, full-size spare and
centered decklid decal.
Over the past few years, some of our best sellers have been ultra-clean
Mopar road warriors. They're fast. They're tons of fun. And best of all,
you don't have to spend the kid's college fund to buy one! Call, click or

71 Plymouth GTX Startup
1971 Plymouth GTX that I've been working on getting back on the road. We
got it as a "almost running" car. "Almost running" was somewhere between
very generous and flat out false. We've ended up replacing all the bushings
in the suspension and rebuilding the engine and the brakes. Now it's
getting to the point that it's driveable and hoo-boy is it a hoot. Always
fun to do the no tag, no muffler shakedown run :)
Here's some specs:
440cu (7.2L) V8 with 727 Torqeflite reverse manual valve body; 8 3/4 rear
end with 3.91 gearset. All going out to a pair of 15x10 Centerline rims
with BF Goodrich 295/50R15 tires. Still not sure if we're going to be
putting in the 4-speed or keeping the brutal automatic. Such a fun car. My
little camera can't capture the amount of noise this thing puts out. It
currently is just running around an old set of 2.5" pipes with no mufflers
that end somewhere under the rear seats.
Can't get enough Mopar!

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...

Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.
