Rarely do you find an awesome two-tone classic like this for a
value price. So take a look at the full vintage package this 1955
Plymouth Savoy offers. And as you really dig into this one, you'll
also discover a great survivor with a one-family history.
1955 was a great year to be a Mopar fan. Plymouth debuted one of
its most radical styles to date. Virgil Exner brought in a sweeping
design that looked fast standing still. The tapered angle of the
front; the way the rounded fender top seemed to stretch from
headlight to tailfin; and the smooth flow of the trunk all gave
this a look that made Chevys and Fords jealous. The Pompano Peach
and Saratoga Sand is a great '50 color combo, and this Plymouth
really knows how to separate the two colors with unique trim lines
that make this rolling artwork. In fact, all the brightwork has the
kind of completeness that sends your nostalgia into overdrive. The
two-tone shows all the right signs of being original on this car.
It has an impressive gloss for a factory application that happened
over 65 years ago, and it helps tell this car's story. It has only
known one family since new...four generations of them! So you're
not looking at a classic; you're looking at an heirloom.
The beige interior has the kind of presentation that reminds us
that this era spent plenty of time thinking about panache. The dash
had a very symmetrical presentation with the glovebox in the
middle. All the right pieces are working, from the heart to the
large speedometer. Both rows of bench seats have a great look with
durable vinyl for the high traffic and textured cloth inserts for
where you sit. All of this is highly original, and so those looking
for perfection will certainly find faults. So you can certainly use
the value price to save room in your budget for an overhaul. But
the real appeal here is that there is a real tale that's told in
the details. After all, it's pretty cool to mention that the wear
marks in the steering wheel can all be traced to one branch of a
The look under the hood continues this car's vintage presentation.
The oil bath air cleaner w/decal, generator, and long block of the
230 inline-six are all part of this time capsule. So it's hard to
believe this is anything but the original powerplant and factory
set up. In fact, the only upgrade you may spot is the electric fuel
pump, and that's just the kind of thing you want when you are also
looking to actually drive. The motor fires up nicely with the
feeling of a well-respected classic. It likes to run strong, and
the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission has the ideal
vintage feel you expect in a sedan like this.
This is a true classic with an awesome story to tell. So if you
love the full vintage car lifestyle, you know this is an
irresistible survivor. Call today!!!
