Car of the Week: 1970 Plymouth GTX

When introduced, the flashy GTX was the James Bond of the Plymouth line. It had the square-jawed looks of the Belvedere/Satellite line, but was dangerous when confronted, thanks to its standard 440-cid V-8 with 375 hp or its optional 426-cid Hemi with 425 hp.

Car of the Week: 1971 Plymouth Road Runner

Wayne Bradley is pretty sure he’s going to have the best of all worlds with his 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. Not only is his Plymouth a wonderfully restored show machine that will no doubt rack up its share of trophies, it eventually figures to be really cool driver.

The 1958 Fury was stylish, plush, plenty fast, and produced in relatively few numbers, making it a very collectible '50s crusier today. 1958 marked the third model year for Plymouth’s top-of-the-line performance model, the Fury two-door hardtop.  In 1982, author Stephen King wrote a novel called "Christine” about a 1958 Plymouth Fury that terrorized...

PLYMOUTH'S OUT TO WIN YOU OVER

Is it my imagination or am I really seeing more Plymouths than ever before at old car events and hot rod runs? People today do not have a full appreciation of how big a share of the market Plymouth had years ago. It was a popular car — right up there with Ford and...

Car of the Week: 1970 Hemi ‘Cuda

Plymouth's resounding message to insurance companies in 1970 was: “Damn the  torpedos— full speed ahead!” And so the Hemi 'Cuda was born, one of the quintessential American muscle cars and perhaps the most coveted Plymouth ever built.
