1952 Plymouth Belvedere
A beautiful coat of shining paint in Belmont Blue adorns the exterior straight steel panels of this massive pontoon sided car. Meanwhile a distinctive Sterling Gray covers the roof and seemingly melts down into the rear haunches of the car. All chrome on this car is beautifully preserved, and even the door handles retain their escutcheon guards to the body from errant keys or fingernails. We need to look closely and appreciate not only the cloisonné badge on the hood, but also the Belvedere script and Plymouth badges on the sides and trunk of the car. The bumpers and a big front chromed grille are spotless as are the add on bumperettes. All window trim is buttoned up and just beautiful. Wide white radial tires wrap Plymouth badged wheel covers which are excellent. Overall, the exterior of this car is extremely fine in presentation.
A swing of the doors and we are in gray vinyl with blue stitched broadcloth insert heaven. Door panels remain excellent, as do the 2 large benches which stretch within the door panel confines and are a stain and tear free mix of gray and white vinyl and a blue checked broadcloth. The chrome window cranks and door releases are all in remarkably good condition as is the armrest with its chrome trimming, adding just a bit of contrast to the otherwise blue and gray field. The all-steel dash is draped in Belmont Blue paint and has a panel in front of the driver of clean bezeled glass covered gauges which are as clean as a whistle. Additional interior dash chrome abounds for the clock, radio, heater/defroster controls and beautiful fronting steering wheel. Clean carpet in an almost body matching blue, and broadcloth headliner in lighter blue finishes off this excellently restored interior space.
A 218ci in-line flathead 6-cylinder in just clean and pristine condition resides under the hood and can be verified as original and correct to the car. A 1-barrel carburetor feeds this engine, and a 3-speed manual transmission is strapped to the back of the engine. 3.90 gears for the rear, and we are all good to go.
Some surface rust is seen on the usual iron suspects such as suspension, interior wheels, and a bit of the frame, but all remain structurally sound. Some surface rust also in the rocker area, but where body hangers meet the body is all clear. Independent coil spring suspension for the front and leaf springs on the rear are noted as are 4-wheel drum brakes.
