1950 Plymouth Suburban
Plymouth’s Original SUV! Two-Family Owned and Beautifully Restored!!
|Condition||Used Clear Title|
|Transmission||3 Spd Manual|
|Drivetrain||Rear Wheel Drive|
Introduced in 1950 the Plymouth Suburban's primary feature was its versatility. As clearly outlined in the Suburban's brochure, Plymouth called it "The car with one hundred and one uses.". No other utility car of the time offered such all-around transportation features. As you settle into the driver's seat and peer over your shoulder you're struck by the commodious interior space behind you. With the back seat up, the Suburban boasts 42 inches of cargo area from the tailgate forward. Lowering the back seat expands the available space to nearly six feet. The Plymouth may be upright and boxy with looks that are something of an acquired taste, but the visibility is excellent thanks to many large windows. Included with the Suburban is the original vehicle invoice...a piece of paper that is 69 years old! The invoice shows the selling price of $1,786 for the sporty wagon. Options were sparse in 1950 with this Suburban being upfitted only with a windshield wiper and bumper guards for a total cost of $10.55. Automatic transmissions, and even overdrive, were still a few years in the future when this Suburban was built, so like all 1950 Plymouths, this one has a three-speed manual transmission with column controls. Depress the floor-mounted clutch pedal, slip the gear selector into neutral and twist the ignition and the flathead six springs to life. There's no roar, bellow or cam bounce, but the little six-cylinder engine is quiet, smooth and eager to please. This exquisite Plymouth received a comprehensive restoration in the mid-nineties, although shows like a recent effort. The Suburban, finished in Brunswick Blue lacquer, looks and runs just like it did when it rolled off the assembly line well over a half century ago. Purchased from the original owner in 1987 the Suburban has been lovingly cared for by its second owner ever since and has spent its entire life in South Carolina. Don't miss your chance to own the original sport utility vehicle produced by Plymouth.
