Do you remember 1954? It was quite some time ago. Billy Joel can sum it up quick: “Roy Cohn, Juan Perón, Toscanini, Dacron, Dien Bien Phu Falls, Rock Around the Clock”. In case some of those names sound a bit too distant (or totally unheard of to the younger crowd) let me make it a bit clearer: “I Love Lucy” was the #1 show on television in 1954. Coincidently, 1954 is also the year that Plymouth introduced the Plaza as its mid-priced line of cars.
Masterpiece is proud to offer a 1954 Plymouth Plaza Suburban for your consideration. This ’54 Plymouth had a frame-off restoration in the past 3 years and was a very meticulous process from the ground up over a 3-year period. The Plymouth has only gone 150 miles since it was built. The paint and body work is smooth and the lines and gaps are straight and correct. To look at this rare wagon you wouldn’t think it was 63 years old, but yes, it is. The two-tone paint are the colors from a late 1980’s Chevy, sand beige and the top is a medium sand beige and makes the 63-year-old wagon look bright and new, and the bright work helps to make it sparkle in the sunshine.
When you open the door to slide into the driver’s seat you are met with an interior that was done with as much care as the exterior. The interior is done with the same colors as the exterior sand beige, medium sand beige alligator, leather, and suede. When the Plaza was restored they kept much of the same 1954 look for the dash but added an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo radio and Vintage air conditioning to help add some of the present-day comforts for when you take the wagon out for a spin or go to the local car show. Turn the key to start up the engine and you hear the subtle rumble of the 318ci Magnum V8 from an ’01 Dodge truck paired with the rebuilt 46RE 4-Speed automatic overdrive transmission. Lift the hood and you will be impressed with look under the hood, the engine compartment has the same look and finish as the rest of the wagon. Clean and very well detailed for shows. By the way the ’54 Plymouth did win shows, it has trophies from 4 shows; 2 trophies for best interior and 2 trophies for best of show.
Down to some final details this rare wagon had a couple of other upgrades, the rear end is from and S10 Blazer and the front end is from a 69 Camaro. This ’54 Plymouth Plaza Suburban came from a Midwest private collection where it has spent all of its time in a climate controlled warehouse. It was originally a southern car until the collector purchased it for their collection.
