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.

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...
Exhaust Flame Throwers 69 Plymouth Fury III
My 1969 Plymouth Fury III Convertible shooting flames from the Exhaust pipes.
Look on Ebay for this kit: "autoloc flamethrower kit"
Kit comes with all instructions for installation.
Basically you will need to purchase Spark plug(s), wire and Coil(s), that
do not come in most kits.
Then you will drill holes in your Exhaust approx. 1 foot from tail pipe exit.
From there you will weld bungs to holes for spark plug(s).
Install and wire coil(s) to ignition cut-off.
Find wiring diagram for your vehicle, wire cut-off as instructed in
That's all it takes. If you've got a welder, you can do this install in
under one hour. These kits are illegal in most states, however, it has been
my experience that if you are not running around town trying to melt all
the bumpers of all the ricers riding your butt, the police will leave you
alone. Just use caution when deciding to fire it off...

BAD ASS 440 MOPAR CAM FROM HELL * 4-SPEED DANA REAR FLOW MASTERS * START UP & INSANE IDLE
My friend just today bought this awesome '65 Plymouth Belvedere 440,
4-speed, Dana Rear and totally restored. The builder had not even quite
finished it and decided to sell. He had never even started the brand new
engine or driven it out the garage. What a damn deal. The guy cut no
corners at all. Everywhere he could he bought the real Mopar Parts. The car
as you can see is gorgeous. You are hearing it run for the first time on

1978 Dodge Warlock Pickup V8 - Mopar Muscle Truck
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1978 Dodge Warlock
pickup. This truck is very similar to the Dodge Little Red Express trucks
from the same time. This truck looks like new, both inside and out. The
black paint is ultra slick, it has nice gold pinstriping details, and the
interior is extremely well kept as well. Under the hood, the V8 is nicely
detailed and is topped with an Edelbrock intake and four barrel carb. The
bed has been completely redone and it's riding on a set of American Racing
wheels with Hoosier tires. This truck needs nothing and is ready to go.
Thanks for checking it out!
