It is a 1958 plymouth and thats all i know


The LP1E portion indicates that it is a 1958 model year 6 cylinder car built at the Evansville plant. Serial numbers start at LP1E-1001 and go up, so yours would be the 17261th built. My reference materials do not indicate the ending number.

The engine number prefix would be one of LP1-L (Plaza Suburban), LP1-M (Savoy Suburban) or LP1-H (Belvedere Suburban) according to the same 1973 issued "1928-58 Plymouth Serial Number List" from Chrysler. I am more familiar with the 1930s cars so having an engine number with those style prefixes looks odd to me.
