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
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.





1953 Plymouth Cambridge Test Drive
Take a quick test ride in a 55 year old unrestored Plymouth 6 cylinder stick shift. Built in the Los Angeles Assembly plant on December 20th, 1952 according to records obtained from Daimler-Chrysler. Selling dealer was Art Frost of Glendale California.





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.

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.

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.





134076 / 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d52jwfy This striking '71 'Cuda pro-tourer, with its 605 cubic inch Hemi V8, fully custom suspension and sleek leather interior, is perfect for the muscle car fan who wants the best of absolutely everything! The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed by the owners of Lakeside Rods and Customs in Rockwell City, Iowa, this slick Plymouth super star features a seamless custom appearance that's highlighted by an immaculate coat of matte-finish paint. The team's plan was to create a car that was unlike anything they'd ever built. And this gnarly pro-tourer, decked in PPG Dark Titanium, detailed in a striking combination of black, orange and silver, and finished in PPG Flex N' Flat clear, ended up the perfect cross between a '70s drag car and a modern Autocross king. When this sinister 'Cuda rumbled into the showroom, it caused such a commotion that our entire staff came out of their offices just to check it out. And when we lifted the hood and found a 605 cubic inch Indy Street Legend Hemi that produces an amazing 850 horsepower and a stunning 790 lb./ft. of torque, we certainly weren't disappointed! At the top of that Maxx aluminum block, a custom shaker forces wind through a reusable filter element into a giant King Demon carburetor that's cinched to a ported intake and fresh stainless fuel lines. At the sides of that intake, Indy 426 heads, which have been fitted with high quality roller rockers and clean stainless valves, hang slick orange covers over an Indy-supplied rotating assembly that includes Wiseco 10.75 to 1 pistons, Eagle H-beam connecting rods, a Callies 4340 crank, ARP bolts and a Comp roller cam. At the sides of that rotating assembly, black long-tube headers swirl spent gases into a rowdy true dual Exhaust system. At the front of those headers, a familiar Billet Specialties Tru Trac system spins a chrome Powermaster alternator above a polished Billet Specialties power steering pump. And the big motor's fires are lit by a Painless Wiring harness that utilizes an MSD 6AL ignition system to spark an MSD coil, a color-keyed MSD Pro-Billet distributor and high performance MSD plug wires. Behind that high-octane engine, you'll find a TCI-supplied Powerglide that's wrapped in a Reid Racing case. That stalwart 2-speed spins a custom driveshaft that's hooked to a Ford nine inch Traction-Lok rear end, tall 3.73 gears and Strange 31-spline axles. As you can probably tell from our pictures, that rock-solid drivetrain is suspended by a custom Art Morrison MaxG chassis that's fitted with a Corvette C6 front clip, a Corvette C6 sway bar, a Watt's Link rear clip and Strange coil over shocks. And power flows to the pavement through a slick set of custom Intro wheels that spin 245/40ZR18 and 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros around chrome lug nuts and color-keyed paint. Inside this stunning Mopar you'll find a completely custom interior that's tight, technological and in excellent condition. The firm seats, custom-stitched suede and leather units that are equipped with RCI Camlock harnesses, feel comfortable enough to spend a sunny afternoon in. In front of those seats, a custom, Lakeside-built dash hangs a sweet set of Classic Instruments Velocity gauges above Large Rockford Fosgate speakers and small Rockford Fosgate tweeters. And the car's driver stays connected to the road via a painted tilt steering column that's complete with stylized stalks and a sporty Momo Nero wheel. In summary, this killer Plymouth pro-tourer represents creative engineering at its very finest, combining stunning design and execution with no-excuses, no-limits performance.
