Another pristine MoPar!  It will be really interesting to see what this one goes for.


The seller is a gentleman in his mid 80s who is selling off his collection. 

The last auction was for his 1956 Chrysler Windsor.  Final bid was $21,326.00    https://www.ebay.com/itm/402145803943

I guess I have never had occasion to test the body of a Camry.

Cant say that I have ever even ridden in one.

But have ridden and driven quite a few old  Plymouths and this one looks good to me.

Although the terms "only original once" and 'repaint' as well as 'full mechanical rebuild' don't really belong in the same ad. (not that there is really any thing wrong with those upgrades).

From what I have read of old reports, 

Chrysler products were known to be some of

the most reliable cars of the early 1950's.


Thanks for pointing out this example, Fin-Seeker.


John I acquired an all original 52 Plymouth last year that was a simple overheating fix for 1700 which I now drive to work 3 days a week. It is original front to back and runs quieter then my new Tundra and gets better gas mileage. The Flat 6 is an incredible motor.  Such a simple car to work on as well. Parts everywhere.  I always thought of the plymouth as "every mans car".  After WW 2 it is the car I picture in every vets driveway as they start a family, bought that first house in Levittown, and went to work at Grumman every morning.

Brooklyn Beer, I owned a '53 Cranbrook , and it was bulletproof.  There is a '57 for sale here with a six , stick setup. Good looking car, that will be fun to drive, and you won't see another like it at shows. 

That 57 would fill the gap between the 53 and the 63 nicely.  Looking hard at it.
