1953 Plymouth Cranbrook Convertible - Over 10,000 Classic, Collector and Current Cars and Trucks at RemarkableCars.com.
1953 Plymouth Cranbrook Convertible
217 cid L-head inline six-cylinder engine rated at 100 horsepower, three-speed manual transmission, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 118.5"
There was no doubt that the all-new Plymouth for 1953 was nothing less than a smash success, for while the previous models had been under the dictates of former president K. T. Keller, who said all cars should accommodate a gentleman while he was wearing his hat, these new designs were smoother and had a lower profile. This brought this line up even to, and in some cases, ahead of the competition. This car has it all, factory radio, heater-defroster, power operated top, a very rare simulated spare tire Coronado kit, and even a pair of fuzzy dice. One custom touch is the addition of a trim strip from a 1954 model that allows for a subtle two-tone scheme. Showing just over 31,700 miles on the odometer, there is no indication that these are original, but the condition inside and out shows it to be a very solid and straight body with the workmanship at or above factory levels.
