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.
1953 Plymouth Cranbrook 4 Door HyDrive Grn
A nice family car...and more modern styling for Plymouth compared to the
more conservative 52. It's the first year Chrysler Corporation's semi
automatic transmission was offered on Plymouth..the other cars in the
corporation had offered it for years. It was all to be outmoded by
Powerflite, their first fully automatic transmission offered for the first
time in 1954. Nice car!
1953 Plymouth Cambridge Suburban Stationwagon Blu NewSmyr120812
This wagon demonstrates the interesting evolution of the American
stationwagon. Plymouth first offered an all steel version in 1949, but
continued to produce wooden sided ones through the 1950 model year...by
1951 only all steel models were produced. In 1953, Plymouth offered 3
transmissions, standard manual, overdrive and by March of the year, HyDrive
which was their semi automatic transmissions its other Mopar mates had
offered for some time. By 1954, unbelievably, Powerflite two speed fully
automatic was offered! It was a time of transition.
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.
1949 Dodge pickup truck
A nice restoration, and is currently being used in business. Old Dodge
trucks seem to never die! A look inside the cab shows how basic trucks
were back in the day. No frills, just the ability to haul things
around...things you wouldn't or couldn't fit into a car!
Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

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.

1956 Chevrolet Ambulance
For those of you born after 1980 ambulances were generally converted
Station Wagons and panel trucks. Depending on the budget of the
municipalities and the needs, many of the smaller rurral towns used a
vehicle like this converted 2 door Chevolet station wagon. In many places
the ambulance also doubled as the funarul cars.
