    The creative license taken with the image almost makes the car look … hy style! Posted March 7, at 5: BTW, I am not old enough, but is this the color green that more early 50s cars were painted than any other? The Plymouth Savoy gets nameplates The Savoy officially became a separate model, though it was still a dressed up Suburban wagon.

    Curbside Classic: Plymouth Savoy – Unexpected Affection

    It was quite some time ago. Billy Joel can sum it up quick: In case some of those names sound a bit too distant or totally unheard of to us younger crowd let me make it a bit clearer: Coincidently, is also the year that Plymouth introduced the Savoy as its mid-priced line of cars. Plymouth had previously used the Savoy name starting in , as a trim level on its Suburban wagons.

    Named after luxury prestigious hotels, all three models were new for The Savoy was available in three body styles: Every Savoy came with two-tone exterior paint combinations, as well as interiors that were color-keyed to the exterior colors. I love the backward-tilting shape of the rear quarter window and upper door portion.

    Noticeably absent from the interior are seat belts, which did not become common in American automobiles for another few years. Energy-absorbing steering columns would not be introduced until the Mercedes-Benz W This one here looks like it could be pretty damaging in a high-speed collision.

    This required the parking brake to always be used in order to park. Like a lonely old dog at the pound, it sits, waiting for someone to love it again and take it home. A couple of our local citizens entered their Savoys in the competition but they did not make the cut. Johnny Cash wanted to rekindle fond memories of a Savoy he owned in his early days on the road and was searching for another. I remember the ads for Johnny Cash searching for a similar Savoy. Sounded like a detergent or soap name.

    This may be the dowdiest, most backwards design job of the s, with the possible exception of the Hudson Jet. There is a reason that Plymouth sales tumbled, and you are looking at the main one. That said, that interior shows off the attributes of the old, old Chrysler Corporation. Nothing cheap about that interior. And this is a mid-line model, too. I can only imagine what the Belvedere looked like. This must have been one of the later cars as it has the PowerFlite.

    It replaced the oddball HyDrive that was like a 3 speed mated to a torque converter, and that shared its oil supply with the engine. Verrrry expensive oil changes. The lack of a Park feature in the automatic was sort of an old-school Chrysler-style engineering approach from the people who stuck with Fluid Drive for so long. A very nice find. Not many of these around, then or especially now.

    I could almost take this one home and love it like the ugly little puppy that it is. BTW, I am not old enough, but is this the color green that more early 50s cars were painted than any other? It seems like it from what I have seen. The darker green paint was in fact metallic. Also if you notice the 4th picture from the bottom, the lighter green paint has bubbled, which indicates it was probably repainted at some point.

    Olds introduced Park in their Hydramatic in I agree about these Plymouths being dowdy and I thought so when they were nearly new during my childhood. My maternal grandfather had what I believe was a 53 sedan must have been a Plaza as it was really bare bones and I thought it was a pretty ugly, cheap little car. Which leads to the question, what was it that led Plymouth to adopt a series of model names based on famous hotels? Plaza, Savoy, Belvedere — they were all hotels. I thought that was so cool, I played with it endlessly.

    Quite a change in image, from dowdy to sleek rocket ship. His son took over the Plymouth that year, and we would still see it coming up our hill for many more years, looking all the more ancient as time passed. Agree on the Chevy comment. Both had two-speed torque converter automatics by then, but Chrysler stuck with the flathead six way too long. Chrysler week has been a wild one for me, since I had fairly limited exposure to Chrysler products with family and friends growing up, yet the cc posts keep covering the Chrysler corporation cars that actually were in my clan, including the New Yorker, the Plymouth Volare and now this.
