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.
Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove
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...

1969 Roadrunner Show Car
1969 Plymouth Roadrunner
If you have paid any attention to Barrett Jackson, Mecum and the other
nationally acclaimed auctions you have probably noticed that you can't go
wrong with a mopar. These cars are EXTREMELY popular and continue to just
become more rare as time goes on. Of them the Plymouth Roadrunner is a
body style that never fails to draw a crowd. The 1969 Roadrunner you see
here delivers that classic muscle car look of the 60s but is fully loaded
with all the best components you can find. The "official" restoration was
done between 2000 and 2003 but the car is continually worked on, updated
and upgraded. The body is very straight and topped with some of the nicest
pearl Burgundy paint you have ever seen. It was a custom blend of House of
Kolor Candy Apple Wild Cherry with Red Ice and Pearl which all works
together to create one of the deepest paint jobs around. The hood is
painted Gloss Black with White Ice and pearl and was just as cleanly done
as the rest. Everything was clear coated 4 times for the perfect finish!
That combined with the perfect chrome gives you a car that never stops
shining! All of the stainless trim is mounted cleanly and shines just as
well. The glass is all good and has a nice dark tint that just adds to the
tough look of this classic. On the passenger side and driver side window
you will find custom Roadrunner graphics that were very nicely etched into
the glass. It has a great stance with the slight rake that looks perfect.
It rides around on polished Cragar SS wheels with fresh tires.
The beauty of this classic doesn't stop with the exterior so pull off the
hood and check out the very nicely done 440 CI motor. If the paint and
body don't grab their attention the engine sure will. It was all
professionally built and was bored .30 over and honed for Jegs Plasma Molly
Rings. It also utilizes Jegs forged speed Pro pistons and rods. Other
high performance components include the Crower solid lifters, roller
rockers, and full race cam. The heads have a 5 angle valve job and were
ported, polished, and matched prior to being installed. They are a 67
close chambered to run unleaded gasoline. Topping it all off is a very
clean Edelbrock finned air cleaner which sits atop the dual Edelbrock
Performer series 600 AFB. Under these you will find the Edelbrock mini
high rise intake manifold. Other important features under the hood include
a Holley "red" electric fuel pump, MSD 6 series electronic ignition, MSD
distributor, MSD high performance blaster 2 coil, all Cool Flex hoses, and
Optima gel battery. The car has the sound to match the looks which is
provided by the Doug Thorley headers and 3" X tube dual Exhaust into dual Flowmaster single chamber
mufflers. To handle the power a beefed up 727 automatic transmission with
3500 RPM TCI torque converter is in place. The suspension system utilizes
high jacker air shocks with leaf springs and chrome traction bars in rear.
The interior of the car was all custom finished out but utilizes the
original style dash. It along with the doors were painted using the same
gloss Black as the hood. The dual high back bucket seats are nicely
covered in Black and have custom embroidered Roadrunners on the headrests.
In between these is a fully custom center console to house the B&M mega
ratchet style shifter and extra gauges/switches. An after market AM/FM/CD
player has been added which provides a great sound. The polished Grant
steering wheel is nicely mounted to the column and uses an after market
power steering system.
Other very cool custom features include the hood scoop LED lights and added
PA system for the Roadrunner at car shows. There are only so many ways to
put it...THIS IS ONE AWESOME MUSCLE CAR!
