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.

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...

Dressed in a unique bronze on black color combination, rocking a big block
440 Super Commando V8 under its hood and equipped with a super rare dealer
installed dual quad intake, this awesome 1968 Plymouth GTX is the kind of
car you can take to the local strip to beat up crosstown rivals, or take on
an everyday grocery run!
This stunning three owner 1968 Plymouth GTX is one of the finest Mopar
muscle cars on the planet! Its complete rebuild began when Dale Wamsley of
Just Metal Restorations meticulously stripped its solid original body down
to bare metal and block sanded every facet into a smooth, consistent
canvas. Once the cars factory accurate panels were fully prepped from
beginning to end, a correct coat of Chrysler code M Turbine Bronze Metallic
was expertly applied under correct black horizontal side stripes and buffed
to a brilliant wet-look shine that can only be achieved with today's highly
advanced paint technology.
Fully detailed, covered in Plymouth turquoise and currently wearing only
break-in miles since a complete rebuild, this slick Plymouths 440 cubic
inch Super Commando V8 is spectacular in every measurable way! The coolest
thing about this legendary Chrysler mill is its dual quad Edelbrock intake
that, according to a story passed down with the title and a dealer warranty
sticker that's still present in the driver's side door jamb, is a correct
dealer installed piece which is original to the car. At the top of that
intake, two modern carburetors, which have been blasted to appear vintage,
sip fuel through fresh stainless fuel lines and suck air through a fresh
re-usable filter element that is clamped into a chrome Edelbrock air
cleaner. At the base of that intake, a correct points distributor sends
fire through Autolite Professional plug wires. And at the sides of that
intake, restored original Exhaust
manifolds send spent gases into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system.
Behind the big bore engine you'll find a freshly rebuilt A833 18 spline
4-speed manual transmission which sends power to a correct Dana 60 Sure
Grip rear end that's stuffed with stout 3.54 gears. Naturally, the front
torsion bar and rear leaf spring suspension has been completely restored
and includes: a rebuilt manual steering system, new rear springs and new
shocks at every wheel. At the center of the car, a free flowing 2.5 inch
aluminized Exhaust system sends spent
gases through an H-pipe crossover to two chamber turbo mufflers and traditional stainless tips. And
at the corners of the car, new stainless brake lines and new brake hoses
supply fully rebuilt factory front disc and rear drum brakes which sit
behind mandatory chrome Magnum 500 wheels and meaty 215/70 turbo-Tech redline tires.
This Plymouths fender tag says it was originally equipped with an S6X Black
interior; and accordingly, it has been restored with a roster of
reproduction parts which provide the kind of jaw-dropping good looks you
just can't find in today's cars. The rear bench and the front buckets seats
are firm and, despite being traditional muscle car vinyl, feel much more
upscale than most. At the bottom of those seats, new black carpet props a
correct Hurst shifter in the middle of a correct, chrome trimmed center
console; and at the top of the seats, a tight black headliner frames a
correct dome light. The cars pristine, wood trimmed dash hangs fully
rebuilt gauges, which include an offset tachometer, beside an original two
watt Solid State AM radio which sports Chrysler's cool thumb-wheel knobs.
In front of the driver, a restored, wood rimmed steering wheel sits on a
rebuilt original steering column. At the sides of the seats, correct door
panels hang new armrests among fresh stainless trim, new Woodgrain applique
and correct gloss black door frames. And behind the cockpit, a fully
restored trunk props a full-size spare tire between a reproduction mat and
a correct decklid decal.
If you're in the market for an old school, investment grade muscle car that
will gain value while you're enjoying it for years to come, this broad
shouldered Plymouth is just what you've been looking for! Call, click or

1967 GTX Survivor vs Corvette
Unrestored 1967 440 GTX drag racing for the first time in 38 years. This
1967 440 4 speed Plymouth GTX was stored in a warehouse in 1973. I
purchased it in 1998 and was the first person to drive it on the road since
'73. I put it in a shed awaiting restoration 9 years ago. On the day this
video was taken (October 30, 2011) it literally had dirt dauber nests and
cob webs still in the engine compartment.
