Plymouth Motor Cars Through the Years


A Pictorial Glimpse of Plymouth Motor Cars from 1923 to 2001

The Plymouth was first shown July 27, 1923 at Madison Square Garden It was Chrysler Corporation's first car in the low-priced field, already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were priced marginally higher than their competitors, although offered standard features, for example, hydraulic brakes that their competitors did not give. Plymouths were initially sold only through Chrysler dealerships, offering a low price option to the upscale Chrysler autos. The logo included a rear perspective of the Mayflower ship which arrived at Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts. In any case, the motivation for the Plymouth mark name originated from Plymouth binder twine, manufactured by the Plymouth Cordage Company, also in Plymouth. The name was picked by Joe Frazer because of the popularity of the twine among farmers.

The Plymouth origins go back to the Maxwell vehicle. At the point when Walter P. Chrysler assumed control of the distressed Maxwell-Chalmers auto organization in the mid 1920s, he acquired the Maxwell as a aspect of the bundle. After he utilized the organization's plant to make and deliver the six-cylinder Chrysler car in 1924, he chose to make a lower-priced companion auto. So for 1926, the Maxwell was revamped and rebadged as the low-end four-cylinder Chrysler "52" demonstrate. In 1928, the "52" was redesigned to make the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" was dropped off the nameplate with the presentation of the Plymouth Model U in 1929. the Plymouth brand was discontinued in 2001

1936 Plymouth Coupe

I shot this picture of a 1936 Plymouth Coupe as I walked out of a restaurant using a Canon point & shoot, a classic example of always having a camera with you.  I like to have some sort of camera with me as I never know when an opportunity like this is going to happen. This is really a great looking car, It appears as if just came off the showroom floor. I have lots of car photos from from Acura to Volkswagen here

Deluxe and Special Deluxe

Plymouth manufactured the Deluxe from 1946 to 1950. It came in two trim levels, the Deluxe and the Special Deluxe. As the war in Europe slowed down, the U.S. government gradually started permitting the vehicle business to return to making automobiles. It had been four years since any new autos had been manufactured, and those autos still out and about were starting to show their age. "The more knowledge you acquire about the new Plymouth… the more you come to believe that not all is surface beauty. You can't see every one of them, yet you can feel them in action.

Plymouth's new models for 1946 incorporated a four-door sedan, two-door sedan, two-door club coupe, and business coupe. Special Deluxes included a convertible car and woody station wagon to the line-up. It was common for there to be waiting lists at dealerships

Plymouth manufactured different trucks and vans throughout the years, primarily rebadged Dodge or Chrysler vehicles. At first pickups, delivery trucks, and other commercial trucks were built, and later came a SUV, full-sized vans, and minivans. Plymouth had provided segments to the Fargo vehicles, another Chrysler family member, however Plymouth entered the commercial market in 1937 with the PT50.
