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.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
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...

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.

Plymouth GTX 440 LOUD SOUND RoadRunner V8
Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner Sound - Hello and welcome to the Car
Acceleration TV Channel 2014. In today's video, we want to show you a great
american classic car, the Plymouth GTX 440 / RoadRunner. The V8 engine
sound is really incredible. Watch this Plymouth video for cold start sound,
drive scenes and listen the horn. End of 1970, the Belvedere was replaced
by the Plymouth Satellite. Consequently, based on the GTX now the new
model. However, this lasted only one year. Completely new was the coupé
body, technically, everything remained the same. Available were still the
7.2-liter with two power ratings and the seven-liter Hemi V8. Due to sharp
decline in sales of the GTX was taken as a stand-alone model in the fall of
1971 from the program, in the model years 1972 to 1974 there were but for
the continuing Plymouth Road Runner GTX a package. My opinion is from this
period is the most interesting of the Plymouth Cuda Barracuda model.

Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
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!

A Long Neglected 67 Satellite 4spd Needs a Little Free Love
This diamond in the rough 1967 plymouth Satellite sits in her original
owner's yard. After a stint at racing with a 440, the owner returned the
383 with headers and parked her for years - but she starts-up and craves
asphalt! The body, tranny & interior are 100% original and complete, all
tinted class is intact and not cloudy, manual steering & brakes rounds-out
the power package. I would never canabalize such a rarity, but I do envy
the 4spd that would drop in my Black Fury - some day I will find one. The
owner has my number, but will not give out his. He is debating whether or
not his price of $6500 is enough to annul his 40 year vehicular marriage. I
have a feeling a fair amount of cash would sway his separation and let this
B body machine tear-up RTE 66 once again.
Gregs new 1970 Plymouth Satellite
Here is my brother gregs new 1970 plymouth satellite bought today 5-1-08.
This is a solid southern car and was stored for years,
The car went to a shop in DePere Wi on Jan 6th 2009 for a complete ground
up restoration, after being told it would take 60 days to complete, the car
had to be taken away on August 6th 2009 the guys who did the resto wasted 8
months & $1000's of dollars and now the car is once again going to get a
complete ground up restoration at a very reputable shop.
What a shame, the restoration the guys did could have been done better by a
first grade girl...
To put the time and money spent on this beautiful car and to have it turn
out like a $0.99 cent wal-mart spray bomb job is just sickning, then they
admited they never blocked the car out before it was painted,and to look &
feel like sand was mixed with the paint, very very disapointing.
Don't worry Bro when it comes back this time it will be done rite by a true
auto guy that knows what he is doing.
