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...
How to MIG weld a patch in car floor pan. E30 bmw.
This is my first welding how to video. I have been welding new steel into
my 325i sport for the last 6 months. When I started there were not a lot of
HD youtube videos on mig welding on cars so I thought I would make one.
I used 1.8mm steel sheet, a Lincoln Powermig 180c welder and 0.6mm super
arc wire with a Argonshield shielding gas.
I am sorry my head is in the way of some of it. I didn't realise until I
looked through the footage later.
Field Find! 1941 Plymouth Road King Walk-Around.
Hi! Cold War Motors just dragged home this sweet 1941 Plymouth Road King. I
found it only a few miles from my house! I had been looking for a '41
Plymouth for several years, so I was not going to let this one get away.
It's in surprisingly good shape for a car that has been sitting outside for
probably 50 years or more. It is very solid, with only part of the trunk
floor needing replacing. It still has its original engine and 3-speed
standard transmission. I can't wait to get this one going and go for a

training at http://CollisionBlast.com - POR-15® is a high performance
coating designed for ap- plication directly on rusted or seasoned metal
surfaces and concrete. POR-15® is non-porous and seals and protects many
surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other cor- rosive contaminants.
POR-15® is an effective anti-corrosive and rust preventive coating that
offers superior chemical resistance due to its dense, cross-linked
molecular compo- sition and non-porous attributes.
For over 25 years, POR-15® has been applied on thou- sands of vehicles and
structures around the world. Our restoration products can be found in
Antique Car Muse- ums, Classic Car Shows, hundreds of body and restoration
shops, as well as on government and local municipality trucks and
equipment. Extend the life of any metal by pro- tecting it with POR-15®.
The following is a small sample of how people are using our products:
• Frame Coating
• Snow Plows
• Holding Tanks
• Air Conditioner & Refrigerator Parts
• Field Equipment
• Any metal surface suffering from corrosion
What makes POR-15® so tough?
When you apply POR-15® to a rusted metal surface, the first thing you
notice is the flow of the product and the way it seems to penetrate the
metal. What you are seeing is the amazing tenacity of POR-15® and the way
it chemically re- acts to "grab" onto rusted metal like nothing you have
ever seen! We call this polydigitalTM adhesion, and nothing else can match
its' bond strength and resilience.
This first image displays the polydigitalTM (multi finger like) adhesion
that POR-15® exhibits on any surface. POR-15® penetrates the metal, con-
crete, or wood and grabs
hold of it to create a bond unlike any other. Once fully cured, the surface
dries to a rock hard, non-porous barrier protecting against rust and

the surface. That's why polydigital adhesion is a su- perior technology
exclusive to POR-15 alone.

Will it Run? Episode 12: 1950 Plymouth Deluxe (Part 3 of 3)
Hi! This is the twelfth installment in our series about salvaging dead
cars and getting them to run. This time it's a 1950 Plymouth Deluxe 2 door
fastback sedan! This car has been sitting outside for most of its life, and
hasn't been on the road since 1973. Can we get it to start? What are the
chances of stopping it if we do?
I got this car out of a field about 8 years ago; it was seized and very
rough-looking. I pulled the head back then and unstuck it. While I was
there, I replaced the timing chain.
I put it away shortly after and never did anything with it until now.
Well, we blew the budget... I had to pay for a water pump, 2 frost plugs,
an upper rad hose, and one spark plug. Not bad...
Car is still running:
All original engine internals,
old master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes and drums,
original plug wires, cap, points, 5 old plugs...
Original carb taken apart and cleaned; rebuilt with n.o.s. gaskets from
original head gasket (re-used!)
original generator (works!) and old fan belt.
Original clutch, transmission and driveline.
First oil change in 40 years!

Very special and unique car. It has been my passion for 5+ years. I went
completely through the car to make it my own and to make sure it is 100%
and well tuned and sorted. It is turn key and ready to enjoy. ***No
Drag raced it 1 x on 1/4 mile and 2 x on 1/8 mile - just for fun but it is
super fast. Mostly take it to local cruise nights and car shows, I drive
it to work on nice days, and I took it to Carlisle several times. It won
1st place at the Carlisle Mopar weekend fun field!
Well sorted and in excellent condition, turn key and enjoy! Street legal,
registered and inspected. Pump gas. Needs nothing.
I just had engine freshened with all new bearings, rings (stock bore) had
the heads done over, brand new 3500 stall converter and 4.11 gears (more
street friendly than the 4.56's it had).
I also had a custom 3" Exhaust system
installed with cross over and tailpipes. New Mopar dual batteries.
Literally less than 10 miles on all new parts - still breaking it in.
When we tore down the engine we were shocked to find a top fuel billet
crank. We upgraded to Indy roller rockers to match the roller cam.
Super cool car it is the hit of any show.
The interior is period correct racer with vintage seats, full dash and roll
bar, but no carpet or door panels.
