1953 Plymouth Suburban 2 door stationwagon

Two door wagons were popular in the early 50's. Plymouth introduced a nice all steel wagon in 49, but kept a wood panel wagon as an option through 1951. These were very practical wagons with a folding rear seat and clamshell hatches in the back. This video is particularly interesting in detailing the sourcing of parts for a car like this. As the owner says, exterior sheet metal is still available..and the mechanical parts are readily available.

1964 Chrysler 300K hardtop
The 300 muscle cars started in 1955. This one has a 413 c.i. displacement V8...with the dual carbs and tuned intake manifolds, I do believe the higher horsepower that Car Spotter's mentions (390) pertains. Note too the air conditioning on this model. The 300K was available as a convertible too.





1966 Sunbeam Tiger
A nice marriage of a British sports car and an American V8...a Ford 260 c.i. The bizarre part was the fact it was sold at Chrysler Corporation dealers here in the U.S. Chrysler had had an agreement with Sunbeam and their cars. I've often wondered if the dealer referred the owner to the Ford dealer for warrant work on the engine, if that were needed!





1941 Packard 120 4 door sedan
This is the last of the traditionally styled Packards except for the 180 sedan produced in the abbreviated model year of 1942. Also introduced this 1941 model year was the Clipper, a more modern styling that incorporated lower, more streamlined body lines and a less conspicuous grille. For many, this is the last of the "true" Packards of legend.





1951 Plymouth Cranbrook 4 Door Sedan
K.T. Keller would be happy with this sedan..it fulfilled what he felt was important in a family car...chair high seats, lots of headroom for all those folks wearing hats...and plenty of legroom. Nice touches with the gray woodgrain, deluxe steering wheel, long wearing upholstery. These cars were very durable.





1953 CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY STATION WAGON
An older video of a ChryslerI have since sold





1951 PLYMOUTH, CONTINUING THE ALL STEEL WAGON
FOR YEARS CAR MAKERS PRODUCED STATION WAGONS FRAMED IN WOOD PIECES. IN 1949 PLYMOUTH WAS THE FIRST TO MAKE THEIR WAGONS BODIES ALL IN STEEL ALTHOUGH CHEVY, OLDS, AND PONTIAC WERE CLOSE BEHIND. THIS 1951 WAGON DESIGN HAS A FACELIFT BUT THE STEEL WAGON BODY BEYOND THE FRONT DOORS IS THE SAME BODY SINCE IT'S INCEPTION IN '49. THIS WAGON HERE IS A "BARE BONES" SUBURBAN MODEL WITH FEW OPTIONS. THERE ARE NO BUMPERETTES ON THE FRONT BUMPER, NO GRAVEL GUARD ON THE REAR FENDERS, NO SUN VISOR, NO EXTERIOR "WOODY" TRIM. JUST A WORKHORSE VEHICLE. THE ENGINE, NOT SHOWN, WAS THE 217 CID L - HEAD SIDE VALVE SIX WHICH PRODUCED 97 BHP. NOW THIS ENGINE ALTHOUGH NOT FAST OR PEPPY WAS CAPABLE OF 23 MILES PER GALLON AND IF YOU HAD YOUR FOOT ON THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL LONG ENOUGH YOU COULD GET UP TO 80 MPH. NEW INNOVATIONS WERE THE COMBINED IGNITION/STARTER SWITCH AND THE AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC CHOKE. AN IMPROVEMENT IN SUSPENSION WAS THE ORIFLOW SHOCK ABSORBERS A CHRYSLER DESIGNED HYDRAULIC CYLINDER TO EASE HANDLING AND IMPROVE THE RIDE. THE SUBURGAN WAGON RAN ON A 111 INCH WHEELBASE. THE BASE PRICE WAS AROUND $1,850 WHICH WAS LESS THAN THE COMPETITION. PLYMOUTH SALES AGAIN CAME IN THIRD BEHIND FORD AND CHEVY BUT NEVERTHELESS SOLD OVER 600,000 IN ALL MODELS. THE INTERIOR OF THIS ORIGINAL UNRESTORED PLYMOUTH IS BASIC AND SIMPLE BUT THIS SUBURBAN DID HAVE A FACTORY RADIO. THE INTERIOR IS VINYL / NAUGAHYDE GREAT FOR WEAR RESISTANCE. THIS CAR HAS HAD IT'S FRONT SEATS RE-UPHOSTERED. NOTE THE SLIDING SIDE WINDOWS AND THE FOLD-DOWN BACK SEATS FOR A LARGER CARGO AREA. THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW THE STATION WAGONS LOOKED IN THE EARLY FIFTIES AND ANOTHER RARE CAR TO VIEW. IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS, PLYMOUTH UPDATED THEIR STYLING, SIZE, horsepower, AND MARKET SHARE. ( see my related video of Plymouth's first muscle car, the 1956 Fury ). PLEASE VIEW MY OTHER VIDEOS OF RARE, SPECIAL INTEREST, AND RESTORED CARS.

1956 Ford Parklane 2 Door Station Wagon
http://barnfineclassics.com/inventory/1956-ford-parklane-2-door-station-wag on Here's a one year only, 2 door station wagon, '56 Ford Parklane! The Parklane was a direct competitor of the Chevy Nomad. It was also the top of the line vehicle that had all the fancy stuff you'd want in the mid-50's. This one is powered by a 292ci Y-Block V8 and the Ford-o-Matic 2 speed automatic transmission. It also has brand new dual Exhaust with chrome tips, a new chrome air cleaner, new shocks, and a new brake master cylinder. Inside, it has complete interior, with a folding rear seat, all working gauges and speedometer, working wipers, sliding side windows, and a Custom Autosound digital AM/FM cassette deck. Exterior features include a TON of chrome and stainless that is complete, a fold down tailgate, 1956 Washington license plates, and 15 inch American Racing wheels! Other extras that come with the car are many duplicate parts and other rare items that are hard to find for this one year only vehicle! This car is an excellent candidate for a restoration project. Fully restored Parklanes can go for as much as $70,000! This one runs and drives so well that you can cruise it while you restore it!

1961 PLYMOUTH SUBURBAN SPORT 4-DOOR WAGON, RARE WAGON
CARRYING ON WITH THE FORWARD LOOK WITH CHRYSLER PRODUCTS, PLYMOUTH STYLING THIS YEAR WAS, WELL DIFFERENT. SPACE AGE BIZARRE DESIGN FIZZLED SALES. IN FACT, ONLY 3,088 OF THESE 9 PASSENGER WAGONS SOLD MAKING THIS EXTREMELY RARE. THE FINS OF THE FIFTIES WERE GONE AND REPLACED BY A HORIZONTAL TRAILING EDGE TO THE REAR. BOLD CONCAVE GRILLE FRAMED BY FRONT FENDER SWOOPS HOLDING DUAL HEADLIGHTS RESULTED IN A ODD FRONTAL LOOK. FLASHLIGHT TYPE TAIL LIGHTS ADDED ANOTHER DESIGN ABSTRACT TO THE OVERALL LOOK. INSIDE THE DASHBOARD WAS JUST AS BIZARRE AS THE EXTERIOR DESIGN. THIS WAGON IS POWERED BY A 361 CID V-8 THAT CAME WITH POWERFLITE AUTO TRANSMISSION AND AIR CONDITIONING. NOTICE THE PUSH BUTTONS ON THE EXTREME LEFT OF THE DASH, THE OBLONG STEERING WHEEL, AND THOSE LARGE GAUGE PODS MOUNTED ON THE DASH. THATS A NICE LOOK OF THE ROOF WITH THOSE RIBS RUNNING THE LENGTH. THE INTERIOR IS PERFECT AS WELL AS THE TOTAL BODY CONDITION. I DON'T THINK OF THIS WAGON AS UGLY, I FEEL IT'S A HISTORIC PIECE OF AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN. A DESIGN THAT DIDN'T SELL WITH THE PUBLIC IN '61, BUT ONE CAN MAYBE APPRECIATE THIS PLYMOUTH'S LOOKS TODAY. Another original survivor brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.
