The 1968 Plymouth Belvedere came close to the end of the life for this model, which Chrysler produced from 1954 to 1970. The first incarnation of the model was the 1951 to 1953 Cranbrook Belvedere. The two-door hardtop came out to compete with the Chevy Bel Air. As was always intended for the Plymouth name, this version of the Cranbrook was a low-cost car. In fact, it was the first, affordable two-door hardtop to come out of Detroit.

Hurst/Olds 1968A special edition model, the 1968 Hurst/Olds represented the best in performance that the Oldsmobile name had to offer. To understand what the 1968 Hurst/Olds was, you have to go back to the origins of the Oldsmobile 442. The Olds muscle car came out in 1964, initially as an option on the Cutlass and the F085. The number referred to the four-barrel carburetor, the four-speed manual transmission, and the two exhaust pipes. From 1968 to 1971, the 442 was a model of its own, and in 1972 it became an option again, through the early 1990s.

Originally the Biscayne offered up two versions, the pillared two-door or four-door sedan. The 1968 Biscayne also came in a wagon format. Although the 1968 Biscayne and the other model years for this Chevrolet were largely intended for the fleet market and for use by small businesses, the general public could also purchase them. They appealed to anyone who wanted an inexpensive car with plenty of room and didn’t care about frills and extras. The Biscayne was a car that would get you from A to B and not a whole lot else.
