A concept car from the Plymouth Division (Chrysler Corporation) for the 1954 New York Auto Show. The car was styled by Briggs powered by a 157hp V8 engine.
Although concept cars were routinely destroyed once their useful life was over, under a special arrangement with Chrysler, the Belmont became the personal property of Vice President of Design Virgil Exner for several years.

A hot-rod styling car, with a striking design feature: the open Indy racer-style front wheels.
It has 3.5-liter V6 engine in a aluminum-intensive body designed by Syd Mead. By the time it was discontinued in 2002, wearing a Chrysler badge after Plymouth’s demise, fewer than 12,000 Prowlers had been sold.

This rare Plymouth is one the cleanest, most refined and elegant of all the pony car designs. Distinguished by its wide grille, long, flat hood, short rear deck and ominously raised rear fenders
It’s a beast of only 11 ever produced. It’s a classical american car with a 425 bhp HEMI V8 engine, with a rare factory colour, Violet (Plum Crazy).

A bold and risky asymmetrical design by Virgil Exner for Plymouth. America’s postwar thinks that futuristic cars will be exuberants and inspired by jet aircraft and rockets. A little bit like Flash Gordon comics.
Built in Carrozzeria Ghia in Italy, this car was only a concept, the project never got the green light. The car was bought by a series of owners, including Shah of Iran, disappeared for some years, and rediscovered in Beirut on 80’s. Now it’s full restored so we can enjoyed.
