1955 Plymouth Belvedere
All Plymouths were treated to a major overhaul for the 1955 model year. This was the first year of legendary Chrysler Stylist Virgil Exners "Forward Look" and the redesigned Belvedere returned as elite model of the whole fleet. This revolutionary no-post design is unlike any other cars of the time period with its lines and details putting it over-the-top in style. The car is very close to stock with just a few upgrades that are detailed .....
The car sounds great when it starts on the first turn and the 241ci Hy-fire V8 motor comes to life. There is a unique rumble to one of these engines that gives it a different sound from the rest of the pack. It may not win many drag races, but there is plenty of pep as it glides through the recently rebuilt 3-speed transmission and stock rear-end. The engine has just been tuned-up and has a new cam shaft, timing gear, lifter, thermostat, mounts, voltage regulator, radiator, water pump, rebuilt heads, battery and an upgraded electronic fuel pump. She stops on a dime with power brakes that are in like-new condition and the emergency has just been rebuilt as well.
The structure of this 4th generation sedan is in amazing shape with its eye-popping red and white paint. All of the original chrome and trim shines complimenting it and the low stance just hovering over the concrete. The frame is in excellent condition and supports the new shocks in the rear, Ford U-Joints and rebuilt steering gear along with the classic covered full size spare with full change kit still intact. Inside you will find many assorted parts accumulated over the years along with the re-chromed bumper guards and unfinished fender skirts that can make the car look completely different in the blink of an eye when painted. If you would like we could assist you in getting them painted. The sedan is just as pretty inside as it is out, with the original tri-color interior done only as they could be back in 1955 with exceptional craftsmanship and style. The seats are red with cloth black and gray insets that match up nicely with the dashboard. Inside that you will see the gauges, iconic dash shift column and speaker for the working AM radio. Just off to the left is the control arm for the spotlight located outside the drivers side window.
Put on some Buddy Holley or Elvis Presley and take yourself back to 1955 in big style!
