A 1960 Plymouth station wagon is such a cool car in it’s own right and and stripped down versions with dog dish hubcaps, 3 on the tree manual transmissions and 6 cylinder engines like this one really have an appeal that is getting greater appreciation in recent years. From the outside this Plymouth wagon has all the attributes of a base level car but take a look under the hood and you’ll see a pretty cool setup with the always reliable 225 6 cylinder engine. The wagon is listed on Ebay in Penns Creek, Pennsylvania with a $24,900 BIN.
A customized intake manifold with dual Weber carburetors to resemble the Mopar cross ram setup has such a retro look it’s not clear to me if this is a period or contemporary setup but what a surprise to what otherwise is a very basic stock car!
If you like fins (and who doesn’t!) this Plymouth is for you. I’ve said it before but translating fin designs to the station wagon models must’ve been a daunting task for certain models but they look terrific on the ’60 Plymouth wagon.
I still get a kick every time I see a rectangular steering wheel which was supposed to improve leg room and driver visibility but how did it help to steer the car! The front seat has been reupholstered in correct material and new door panels were also added. Everything looks to be honest and solid throughout and the added bonus of the ‘sleeper six’ under the hood make this a desirable wagon.
