The Most Interesting Plymouths
In 1928, Chrysler created the Plymouth lineup as their own low priced collection. Sadly for fans of the brand, Plymouth ceased producing cars in 2001. Over the years, there were several interesting Plymouth models that have become icons today.
1960 Plymouth Fury Sunstar: This cool convertible was one of the last winged beauties. It was a truly unique looking car with many unexpected features, like the rotating driver’s seat that allowed easy in and out of the car. With the hooded headlights, pointed tail lights, two-toned paint, and excessive chrome, this car defined the idea of “more is more.”
1970 Plymouth Superbird: NASCAR would not be NASCAR without this iconic car. The legendary Superbird might not have made its way into the garages of the average Joes, but it did enter into their hearts as they watch Richard Petty drive his way into history.
1997-2002 Plymouth Prowler: What started as a concept car in the early part of the 1990s developed into a really cool hot rod that sadly closed out the history of Plymouth. This car was one of the first retro-inspired cars to hit the streets.
1970 Plymouth Barracuda: Even though the Plymouth Barracuda had been produced since 1964, the 1970 model is the most interesting and therefore, the most collectible. The car was not a big hit when it was released, which is what adds to its collectibility today. Buyers could get their hands on a Plymouth Barracuda with the massive 426 V8 engine that made it one of the fastest cars on the road. Even the colors were interesting, as buyers could style their ‘Cudas in colors like Lime Light, Lemon Twist, Vitamin C, In-Violet, and Sassy Grass. It is not unheard of to see ‘Cudas on sale for over $1 million.
1949 Plymouth Woody: If you are into any type of surfer culture, you know the Plymouth Woody wagon is THE car to carry your surfboard. The bulky front is nicely balanced by the wood paneling on the back half of the car. These early minivans had plenty of room and plenty of power under the hood, too.
