1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster
A mechanically very sophisticated car. This body style was in mid run, and
1963 would be the last year for the style. Note the hash marks in the rear
quarterpanels..next year they would be in the doors. Note the convertible
top lowered into the trunk cavity. I'm sure luggage space was limited by
this somewhat, but probably not as much as those cars where the steel top
folded into the trunk When sitting in those seats, you felt surrounded by
the instrument panel...a veritable cockpit.
The very large tailights completed the rocket/airplane feel!
1963 1/2 Falcon Futura hardtop
This "scatback" version was introduced mid year...and has a more
streamlined appearance than the formal roofline (Thunderbird inspired) that
preceeded it. This one looks in showroom condition. This sports air
conditioning, nice bucket seats and a console.
1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible
I had videoed this car some months ago, but felt it needed more exposure.
The car is flawless..beautiful paint and interior! That shade of green was
very popular at the time! The "continental kit" rear spare and the fender
skirts complete the look of the time!
1970 Plymouth Fury Sport Suburban station wagon
They didn't make them much bigger than this! Woodgrain applique to mimic
wood. Note the rear opening door. The third row of seating faces the
rear, a fairly common technique at the time, mandatating entrance from the
rear of the vehicle. This is a reissue of an old video, who knows about
whether it is still for sale.

http://hackwith.com/mycar.htm 383 HP engine (stamped right on the block)
335 horse-power, pistol grip 4 speed, numbers matching, less than 60k orig.
miles. Acquired on April 07, 1995, stored inside at all times, never driven
in the rain since stored. THIS CAR IS NOT RESTORED. It runs fine and is
drivable. Interior is not the original but this thing has amazing potential
to become a real show piece or nice daily driver depending on what money
you spend on it. Make an offer. I reserve the right to refuse any offer for
any reason. I am attached to this car and want someone to restore it. It's
burnt orange like an old penny. 2 door true hard-top, no window posts.
Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/
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.

uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
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...

Let's not waste any time on this brilliant green 1970 Road Runner. It's a
440 with a Six Pack, and it's probably the fastest car we have in the shop
right now. It has been given a recent restoration, and the condition of the
body and undercarriage is jaw-dropping. This is an off-the-charts amazing
Why have a Road Runner without the high-impact color? The lime green paint
is stunning. The straight, clean and solid body is wave free and rust free.
All of the gaps, margins, panels, and door and trunk lips are clean, just
the way you want them. The flat black hood and dust decal stripes along the
flanks have been expertly installed. The chrome and stainless is extremely
clean, and looks appropriate on the car. Honestly, it jumps out at you in
the photos, doesn't it?
Under the hood you'll find the 440 Six Pack engine, fully restored and
highly detailed. The casting number on the motor is 2536430.10. That big
air cleaner looks intimidating covering those three carburetors, and is
properly detailed with a fresh coat of paint and a correct decal set. Take
off that air cleaner and check out the Six Pack Holley carbs, as well as
the Edelbrock intake. This Road Runner carries no performance-robbing
accessories like power steering or power brakes—this is a man's car all
the way through. Details like the radiator, Mopar battery, and Road Runner
horn look to be brand new.
The transmission is a 727 driving the 8.75" rear with 3:73 gears. The rust
free, patch free floors are covered in the same paint color as the body,
and looks tidy and clean. The suspension features new ball joints, sway bar
links and new shocks. The springs have been painted and look brand new. The
frame members have visible stamped part numbers, that's how clean they are.
O2 sensors, a new gas tank, new fuel lines and new brake lines were also
included in the restoration. The drum brakes stop the car confidently,
although you need to give the pedal a good shove just like any car with
manual brakes. A stainless steel Exhaust system with Dynamax mufflers has been
recently installed that gives the big 440 a deep voice that doesn't get
obnoxiously loud when all six barrels are wide open.
Optional Dog Dish hubcaps sit on body matched painted wheels.
The black and silver interior is simply spectacular, and surprisingly it
goes very nicely with the green bodywork. The seats, door panels, carpets,
headliner and the dash are all in great shape. The standard gauges are
present, as well as an aftermarket column mounted tach and dual aftermarket
water temperature and oil gauges mounted under the dash. A bench with a
column-shifted automatic saves some weight. In back, the painted trunk has
a new mat as well.
Beautifully finished inside and out, it's ready to show at high-level
events where it might be the subject of considerable speculation. This is
just a cool car in great colors that is neck-snapping fast. What more do
you want? Call today! 7 Days a Week 248-974-9513 This will NOT last!!!
