Description

The Big Three were quite a bit different in the early 1950s but you can see that Plymouth was a player with this handsome 1954 Plymouth Belvedere hardtop. Believed to have just 52172 original miles it is the stylish alternative to the been there done that Fords and Chevys. With period-perfect colors this Belvedere is a hit everywhere it goes. The Santa Rosa Coral paint is fairly fresh and looks right on the curvy early '50s shape. It doesn't use modern metallics so it feels appropriate even though it's modern urethane and a quick cut and buff would easily take it to the next level. As a good solid original car the way it fits together is pretty much what you would have gotten in 1954 and there's a reassuring solidity to how the doors close and the way the hood latches shut. There are no replacement panels available for cars like this so all the pieces you see on it are factory-issue and you can see how Chrysler was experimenting with tailfins and jet-age trim in the early days of the decade. There's plenty of chrome of course most of which is original and in fair condition for being almost 60 years old (the front bumper is new) and the stainless has that soft shine that looks right. Curved glass makes a dramatic statement particularly the rear window which is probably irreplaceable at this point so it's a good thing it's in great shape. The interior has been freshened using coral-colored cloth and white vinyl on the original bench seats as well as the door panels. Fresh carpets tie it together and the color-matched dash and window sills should be coral overload but somehow it all works just fine. A few well-chosen bits of stainless highlight the door panels and instrument panel which is a simple affair with all the major gauges ahead of the driver and the original AM radio in the center of the dash. The big plastic steering wheel is original and holding up well considering the state of plastic technology in 1954 so you know someone kept this car out of the sun and three-on-the-tree
