pretty rare old mopar.shows 45,000 miles on the odometer.

body is very solid including the floor pans and trunk cavity.flathead six cylinder. not running.deserves a hemi.

forgot to take pics of the back end but should get some on there today sometime.

this is a base model 2 door that never did come with any fancy side chrome trim.

it would look great if a person could find a higher end model trim and put it on this car. 403-792-2390 note:

i did have a viewer from sask that mentioned he does have the belvedere trim for the left and right side of a 2 door car like this for 200.00.

Quite a find and reasonably priced, though it would need to be gone through.

I disagree with the seller about adding trim from a higher model.  The beauty of these plain jane Canadian cars is their austerity, it actually shows the lines of the car better, IMHO.

Seller also has the quasi-Mopar thought pattern of "it needs a hemi"... in this case the hemi wasn't available in Plymouth in 1957 (just the polysphere), but furthermore a plain car like this with a six is somehow fitting.

That said, an understated hot rod with an early hemi would be cool, though, but keep the low-line trim.  A hot LA block (340-360) would actually be a good choice as well IMHO.

Sorry for the Mopar speak... Just my 2˘...

Here is one i spotted in the ST boniface area of Winnipeg this past fall

A very basic level of car but still good looking with its original paint job 

One can see why these Exner mopars were such a styling sensation. Even a base model like this one would have been a sharp looking car

Always liked the 57 Full wheel covers

A friend of mine in Ontario has this 58 Plaza

It has a later 413 with a GM 700R4 using an adapter. Notice the side windows are custom (vent windows removed).

1957 Plymouth: Their sales slogan was "suddenly its 1960."

Dad's first new car was a 1957 Plymouth Plaza 2-door sedan. Bought to replace a $50 Model A he picked up after the war, his Plymouth was pink & white like the 4-door shown by Bigdreams above, and had a flathead six with a 3-speed manual. I never saw the car except in a picture; dad replaced it in 1961 with a new Biscayne 4-door. I came home from the hospital in that one in 1961. Shown here in a 1965 photo, it was replaced in December 1965 with a new 1966 Biscayne.

I have seen this 58 at numerous car shows in southern Ontario. It is very impressive to say the least. These cars got a very bad rap for poor quality and fit but they sure were real good looking cars, especially in Fury form.

That 57 in Ontario is priced about 9 grand over market. That pink would need to go.

It would be impossible to talk too much about the best Pontiacs ever made.
