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.

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!





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.





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.





1954 Buick Skylark convertible
A beautiful restoration. Very uncommon when new, you can imagine how many survive at this time. The second year for the "nail head" Buick overhead valve V8. Notice the aircraft type slide controls. Aviation themes were common in cars of the period. Colorful paint and matching interiors truly set these cars apart.

1952 PLYMOUTH SUBURBAN 2 DR. WAGON - ALL STEEL WAGON
1952 Plymouth touted 46 improvements although those improvements were mostly hidden. But the super idea that came to being is building a station wagon that had no wood at all in it's structure. The Plymouth wagon was now all steel construction. There are three Plymouth models this year. At the bottom was the last year Concord, then Cambridge, and at the top the Cranbrook. The Suburban wagon was placed within the Concord model. Body styles are a business coupe, a 2 door sedan, the Savoy 2 door wagon, Suburban wagon , 4 door sedans, club coupe, convertible coupe, and the beautiful Belevedere hardtop coupe. The Suburban wagon cost $2,160 new, weighed 3,145 lbs., and had a production around 37,000. The only engine designated for the Plymouth is an L-head, 217 cid with 97 bhp. This is an engine that Plymouth utilized for a few years until 1954. I find this steel wagon in excellent condition due to a cosmetic redo. Check out that handsome dash and the painted steering wheel and brake release. Many thanks for viewing this 1952 Plymouth Suburban wagon.

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.

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. Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. 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). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plymouth_(automobile) 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 farmers... 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 engine. 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...
