This car was originally from South Carolina, until it was purchased in
August of 1998 by the gentleman that we purchased it from. The car started
life as a solid B5 Blue Duster Twister with a 318 Automatic on the column.
The car underwent a complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration over the
next few years (100’s of hours invested) by a Mopar expert out of NY.
This is a very unique Duster with a production date of July 9, 1971, the
last day of scheduled production for that model year before summer
shutdown. This is probably one of the last 1971 Dusters ever built. This
awesome restoration was completed in 2006 and it is a blast to drive.
The original build sheet, gas cap, JVC CD changer and remote, owner’s
manual and South Carolina ownership information, photographs of the
restoration are included in the sale.

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...
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.

1974 Plymouth Duster 360
By Miguel Caparros.
When the Barracuda moved up in size Plymouth decided to spend their
restyling budget on a sporty semi fastback coupe to fill the void left by
the Cuda. It was a great move as the Duster was separated enough from its
Valiant brother that buyers considered it a much more sporty and a great
value for the money. But it was the performance variations that we all
remember including the hand full of Hemi Dusters that were terrors of the
drag strip. The standard slant six was an economy leader and legendary for
reliability but it was the range of V8 power options that began with the
318 and went up to 360. But in most experts opinions it was the 340 Dusters
and its brother the Dodge Demon that were the street fighters and giant
killers. The enthusiast could order a Duster and get the performance
package with either an automatic or a 4speed behind the 340. It was the
1971 model of the duster that turned out to be the right combination of
compression and the new electronic ignition that made that year special as
in 72 Chrysler lowered the compression and made the valve size smaller to
meet emission standards.
The 71 340 also had an over the shelf Six Pack that really kicked up the
performance when installed with a set of headers.
In 1971 I was at Fort Gordon Georgia waiting to see what the fate of my
life would be, I took a trip to town and had an extended road test in an
Orange Dodge Demon 340 4 speed with a 410 gear that made for wonderful
acceleration put was definitively limited in long distance driving. The
engine was wonderful as well as the transmission. The steering and brakes
did leave much for this sports car driver to desire. Coming from some very
sporty cars it was the engine that I truly loved, and if was into drag
racing I would definitely have bought one.

making about 320 HP at the flywheel" -Duster's owner
G35 has a Borla cat-back and a Motordyne 1/2" plenum spacer, quickest ET to
date is 14.17, fastest trap is 99.86.

This is the first video of a converted 360 from a slant 6. I got this car
from my grandfather years ago and I finally restored it. Took me 7 years to
complete it while going to school and working part time. I have invested a
lot of money into this car and can honestly say I know everything about it
inside and out. After 7 years of wondering what it would be like to drive,
the day has finally come. Here is a 4 minute video of me cruising in my
