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.

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...

1964 Valiant Signet 200 Convertible
Owned Since - March 25, 2007 - SIX & HALF YEARS - WOW - time flies!
This car had been poorly maintained.
I think the last owner said when he bought it, the top engine was removed,
so he and a buddy started working on it and got it to a decent running
state. They upgraded the lighting (Daniel Stern Lighting) and the Master
Brake Cylinder was upgraded to a double reservoir. Brake cylinder upgrade
on these cars are always a good idea. He added seat belts in the rear and
drove his kids around his home in Seal Beach, California until his wife and
he were getting a divorce and the car had to go.
And this is where I came in and bought the car. Found on Craigslist in the
Seal Beach area, just over 100 miles north of where I live in San Diego.
What an experience! Had to have it towed as I had the top up and Exhaust was entering the car threw the trunk
area... (had an accident years earlier and the repair in the trunk was
poorly repaired, I didn't figure out until later...) So, I almost passed
out when I felt like I needed to pull over to stop. I had the car towed by
AAA Roadside Assistance. I always recommend Roadside Assistance,
especially with a classic car.
The next morning I got 5 New Tires and cleaned and polished-up the red
paint, chrome and vinyl.
This car was barely a daily driver, the steering was sloppy, front end
pulled to the right and there was noise coming from the rear-end or
transmission ( a humming.) Two years later I would have the rear-end
rebuilt and it was not the rear-end. It was the Transmission.
My friend Marty is my GO-TO GUY.. he came down and he went around, over and
under the car and gave me an "Attack Plan" since I'm no mechanic.
I first started on the drive-shaft. I never did anything like this before
and I've had Many Old cars. I use to pay to have things done, the good old
days, Ha. Now I do. It was a easy job to pull it out and take it someone
to rebuild and update the drive-shaft..
I was still out $400.00, but saved about $200 pulling it myself... I don't
have machining equipment. :-(
Front-End was a hands on job and the brakes ended up being done that same
weekend (my friend said it was a Now Job!
I was not ready to fork out extra $$ that weekend. Brakes are great, drums,
Over time - WOW, what a difference. Steering gear box, Exhaust system & cooling were also replaced.
A rebuilt 225 Slant 6 (from a Marine Shop in the Seattle area) and Rebuilt
the Torqueflite 904 Automatic 3 Speed Transmission (Rebuilt by Lemon Grove
Transmission) replaced in April 9, 2009
Many other items have been removed repaired or replaced prior to engine
and trans work...
Interior was missing all door & rear panels. The previous owner, in place
of door proper panels, instead covered board in grey wool (like carpet) and
put that up on doors and rear. A guy her in San Diego was selling some
items on eBay and when I went over to pick up a rear bumper, he offered a
group of door panels for a 2 door hard top, but they were looking like
water had got to them and were all warped, like potato chips.
Being crafty, I got to fixing them. First I cleaned them with Holy Cow and
made sure to make sure the board was just wet enough to be pliable so I
could place heavy objects on them to flatten them back straight. I did lay
towels down to cover both sides of the panels. After a few days I taped
them up and used Plastic Spray paint to paint them Red, they were Blue and
not Signet Styled, (with the silver Mylar rectangle on them) that's just
silver spray paint I did after the red. I took DAYS for the Red to Dry
Properly, nothing happened immediately.
Those Panels worked great as you can see in the video above, but I will be
looking to replace them with reproductions from a 66 Dart with carpet along
the bottom of the panel. I also like the idea of having a little something
from other A-Body Model Years, 1963 1964 1965 1966 Valiant's and Darts.
This is my Daily Driver & Future Plans include:
- Body work & paint back to Original Black- NOW DONE
- Painting the Bows - NOW DONE
- New Carpet - NOW DONE
- New Top - NOW DONE
- Bumpers NOW DONE
and the list continues...
but getting shorter -
