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...

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/aho8jr4
The GTX came off as a gentleman's hot rod in the day of stripped-down
muscle cars. Comfortable and stylish with a healthy dose of brutality mixed
in, car's like this '68 GTX have become collector favorites. Well restored
and ready for cruising, this B-body is the perfect solution to that empty
space in your garage.
The paint is blindingly red, flat and smooth. In GM land the paint work
would be referred to as a "body on" job - the interior came out, the motor
and transmission were pulled, the glass all came out and all of the jambs
were finished to better than new, but the clean undercarriage was left
untouched and original. The original undercoating remains in place,
covering rock solid floors.
As far as trim goes, it's all polished original stuff, and if it was chrome
it was replaced or re-plated. New door handles, a new antenna, new locks,
re-chromed bumpers, highly polished and dent-free window moldings, a new
windshield, restored taillights and finish panel, new lenses and more. A
slick new black vinyl top completes the exterior with style!
Lift the hood and you'll find the original 440 Super Commando V8 engine
looking better-than-new thanks to some serious attention to detail. The bay
and block alike are loaded with clear for an unreal shine while several
original and correct pieces round out the mill. From the Group 27 battery
to the correct ballast resistor, everything within sight combines to form
an authentic looking package that starts with ease and sounds awesome
through Flowmaster mufflers.
Beneath the car, a date-coded 18-spline A833 4-speed manual transmission
makes quick work of shifting. Power is applied to a sturdy Dana 60
differential packed with 3.54 gears. As an Arizona car, the undercoated
sheet metal around that drivetrain is rock solid, providing a great
backdrop for the factory suspension. At the corners, Magnum 500 wheels
wrapped in redline cap off the car's vintage look perfectly.
Between the doors, the classic interior has been revitalized with the help
of Legendary upholstery, new foam, new door panels, new carpet, new
headliner -- you name it! Instrumentation is provided by the original
gauges which sit in the original dash, just behind the original steering
column and wheel. There's an AM/FM radio but the sound of the 440 trumps
anything it could play.
Time to step up to GTX- '68 cars are wicked quick and are the last of the
understated B bodies. With excellent paint, thorough execution and
attention to detail, a fully rebuilt drive-train and 100 percent original
sheet-metal, this is one to hold on to, whether you're into cruising or
investing! Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for more
information on this killer Mopar.

I shot two slighty different versions of this video but couldn't decide
which one I should take, so I uploaded both of them.
