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...

1959 Plymouth Sport Fury - Test Drive & Review
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.

134545 / 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/lnragwb
A highly exclusive aero car that features an original 440/4-speed
powertrain, this Plymouth Superbird wears original sheetmetal under a
correct white on black color combination. And if you're shopping for a bad
to the bone investment that's fun to look at, a blast to drive and ready to
hit the show circuit, it's the classic of your dreams!
The slick coupe's high quality, frame-off restoration began with a full
array of original, rust-free sheetmetal. Take one look down that slab-sided
metal and you'll see straight and clean panels that are finessed far past
anything from Lynch Road assembly. Pull those panels into the sunlight and
their correct Alpine White two-stage accurately reproduces Chrysler's
crisp, planar lines. Step up close to those lines and you'll find even gaps
that are devoid of any sloppy patches or second-rate finishing work. And,
ultimately, it all boils down to one very impressive pavement pounder that
inspires comments and elicits stares every time it hits the road!
Hoist the long hood and you'll find an original, 440 cubic inch Super
Commando V8 that's authenticated by a 2536430 casting number, a February
(2) 28th (28) of 1969 (69) casting date and a matching 179782 partial VIN.
At the top of that 375 horsepower monster, a big,
4-barrel carburetor rides within a beefy, Organisol-coated air cleaner. At
the base of that carburetor, a correct Chrysler intake hangs between
correct heads and traditional, stamped steel valve covers. At the front of
those valve covers, a reliable points distributor shoots spark through
Chrysler Electronic Suppression wires. And at the sides of that
distributor, fully restored Exhaust
manifolds funnel spent gases into great sounding, true-dual tail pipes.
Behind that mill, an original A833 4-speed, which wears a matching 179782
partial VIN, provides solid, poignant shifts. That tough transmission sends
power to a correct Dana 60 rear end, which spins a proven Sure Grip
differential around correct, 3.54 gears. At the front of the car,
Chrysler's beefy Hemi suspension utilizes an A12 sway bar and standard
power steering to make quick work of big bumps and tight curves. At the
back of the car, that same Hemi suspension hangs correctly staggered
springs at the sides of a leak-free stainless fuel tank. Stops come
courtesy of standard power front disc and rear drum brakes. And all this
Mopar goodness rolls on prerequisite Rallye wheels, which twist 255/60R15
Cooper Cobra radials around subdued center caps and bright stainless rings.
Inside this famous Plymouth, a factory-correct interior is clean,
well-optioned and surprisingly stylish. Seating, an ultra-rare all-bench
set up, displays no significant signs of wear. In front of those benches, a
straight, crack-free dash hangs original factory gauges beside a familiar
Chrysler Solid State. At the bottom of that dash, well-maintained carpet
centers a Hurst Pistol Grip shifter between rubber Road Runner floor mats.
And in front of the driver, a monochromatic steering wheel spins a silver
horn ring around a cool Road Runner centerpiece.
A poster child for the golden era of Detroit, the Plymouth Superbird stands
head and shoulders above nearly every classic in terms of looks,
exclusivity and performance. Few cars are as popular as they are
polarizing, and that simply adds to its cache. With a smooth,
numbers-matching powertrain, all-original sheetmetal and enough visual
flash to stand out in a mirror factory, this awesome coupe is about as
close to the ultimate muscle car as you can get!

The product of a high dollar, multi-year build, this incredible Mopar
pro-tourer wraps a 500 horsepower 3G Hemi and a
completely custom suspension in a custom leather interior and killer
Completed in early 2012, this super clean curve carver is the direct result
of what happens when a seasoned fabricator has an uncompromised vision,
major dedication and access to a six-figure bank account. See, the car's
creator already owned a killer Charger that was buff enough to pull down
sub 10-second passes on an NHRA-sanctioned drag strip, so he wanted to
build a second car that was a bit milder and quite different. Enter this
neon Plymouth, a project which quickly escalated from the restoration of a
fun cruiser into the creation of an outrageous driver's car.
Hoist this Plymouth's bright fiberglass hood and you'll find 6.1 liters of
naturally aspirated 3G Hemi bliss. Straight from the factory that popular
SRT8 powerplant produces an impressive 425 horsepower and 420 lb./ft.
of torque. And with the help of a custom tune by the folks at Bouchillon
Performance Engineering in Hanahan, South Carolina, its performance
transforms from wild to flat out wicked! Measuring in at roughly 372 cubic
inches, the big mill uses a revised block, forged internals, lighter
pistons and a cast aluminum intake to crank out a whopping 500 horsepower and 460 lb./ft.
of torque. And best of all, that's 500 horsepower that'll fire up
in any weather, last thousands of maintenance-free miles, and probably lay
waste to any old school muscle car that's brave enough to stage a
Behind the neo Hemi, a Hughes Performance A727 Torqueflite produces great
bite and hard launches. Out back, there's a fresh Moser Sure Grip rear end
that's equipped with moderate, pavement pounding gears. At the front of the
car, custom-mounted rack and pinion steering provides smooth turns and
quick reflexes. That rack is held off the ground by a first class double
A-arm suspension that's a product of Magnumforce upper control arms, two
inch drip spindles, fresh Aldan coil overs and modified Mancini lower
control arms. Holding the car's rear end off the ground is a Reilly
Motorsports triangulated four link set up that's equipped with new QA-1
coil over shocks. And at the corners of the chassis, custom Boze Alloy
wheels spin 235/55R18 front and 305/45R20 rear Yokohama Advan STs around
graphite gray spokes, satin-finished lips and yellow-trimmed center caps.
Open this B-Body's solid closing doors and take in its custom black
interior that, as an astute combination of serious hardware and modern
aesthetics, is the perfect place to spend jaunts like Hot Rod's famed Power
Tour. The first thing you'll notice is a pair of GS-1 touring buckets,
fitted with high quality RCI harnesses, that are so supportive they'll have
no problem living life 100 miles at a time. Between those seats, a custom
console anchors a B&M Pro Bandit shifter between two cup holders and a
remote controlled Sony CD player. At the front of that console, a clean
Just Dashes dash features snazzy white-faced gauges and a modern pushbutton
ignition switch. And in front of the driver, a three-spoke Momo steering
wheel spins a thick black rim around a shaved steering column.
Brutally fast and visually stunning, this awesome Plymouth perfectly
embodies the tried and true philosophy of pushing the envelope as far as
the arc will go. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
