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!





1938 Ford Fordor Sedan...Edsel's Daughter's car
Edsel brought this car to Maine so that his daughter Josephine could learn to drive. This one had a radio, as befitting a car belonging to the Ford family. Can you visualize Edsel driving, giving instruction to his daughter?? The car is for sale, and the owner's phone number is advertised on the car window.





1954 Buick Skylark convertible

1953 Plymouth Cambridge Kustom
After a year of planning, prepping and building. This is the video of the first start of my "53" Plymouth Cambridge.





1958 PLYMOUTH CUSTOM SUBURBAN STATION WAGON - VERY RARE
1957 & '58 PLYMOUTHS SOLD WELL ENOUGH BUT FEW ARE AROUND TODAY INTACT. THEY TURNED INTO RUST BUCKETS EARLY. THE '57 MODEL PLYMOUTH INTRODUCED A NEW RADICAL DESIGN AND A FEW FEATURE CHANGES GRACED THE 58'S. THE PLYMOUTH MODELS STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM WERE: PLAZA, SAVOY, BELVEDERE, SUBURBAN AND TOP OF THE LINE FURY. SUBURBAN MODELS WERE ALL STATION WAGONS. IN 1957, WAGONS SOLD 102,000 UNITS. IN 1958, WAGONS SOLD 129,000 UNITS. WITH THIS MANY STATION WAGONS SOLD IN TWO MODEL YEARS YOU WOULD THINK THERE WOULD BE MORE SURVIVORS. IT WAS THE RUST THAT DID THEM IN PARTICULARILY AROUND THE HEADLIGHT " EYEBROWS ". THIS WAGON SHOWN COSTS $2,607 AND WAS POWERED BY A V-8, 350 CID ENGINE. BUT LOOK AT THIS ORIGINAL SURVIVOR WITH JUST OVER 67,000 MILES. THE FIFTIES TYPE INTERIOR IS PERFECT. GREAT LOOKING DASH WITH THOSE WONDERFUL PUSH BUTTON CONTROLS, PERFECT SEAT UPHOSTERY, AND PERFECT HEADLINER. ALL THE CHROME AND TRIM SEEMS FLAWLESS. ALL IT NEED IS SOME BODY WORK ESPECIALLY OVER THE HEADLIGHTS, AND NEW PAINT AND THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT RESTORATION. Another rare original survivor brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS SO MUCH FOR VIEWING.





1953 Plymouth Cranbrook Aka The "bomb"





58 Plymouth Belvederes(2) & a 61 Fury!
Another old buddy used to own this red 58 belvedere many years ago. It was sold years ago and he moved to Queensland. And of course,that's Joey's(moparmadnesss) black one. That rare 61 fury post belongs to another old buddy from way back that we've also lost contact with. That's him at 2.25 that i zoomed in on,with the dark sunglasses. Oh and yeah that's Guido in his red 58 chevy cruising into the show behind his 3 cousins in the blue 62 chev,the black 55 chev&the white 55 Caddy. Joey's leading the way in the Plymouth.The 1st part of this vid,with the 'wild58' plates actually belongs to Joey,filmed by him from his camera sometime in the early to mid 90s at the American motoring show at flemington racecourse,flemington VIC, MELB,AUSTRALIA. The rest was filmed at the same show/venue,but in 2000(Sunday 5th March). Check my other vids for more 58 plymouths and other great ol' classic cars.
