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
that Car Spotter's mentions (390) pertains.
Note too the air conditioning on this model. The 300K was available as a
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!
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.
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.

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...
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

1959 Plymouth Sport Fury - Test Drive & Review
Since I am into more things than just RC I thought this might be a great
way to expand the channel a little.
I have been wanting to do a review and drive of a long time member of the
family. This is the old man's 1959 Plymouth he has had.. well basically
since 1959. I hope you enjoy seeing this "old bomb" as he calls it.
