1960 Plymouth Station Wagons are a pretty rare site as it is so when I clicked on this Ebay find I had to do a double take. This isn’t your everyday rare Mopar wagon this is the super rare two door version of which only five are know to exist according to the seller. Turns out this isn’t the first time this finned masterpiece has shown up on Ebay. In January of 2017 it was auctioned off as you can see on this Barn Finds listing.
This solid and very original looking 1956 Plymouth has spent most of its life in Oklahoma where the conditions and previous ownership have been forgiving to the car’s condition. Although there has been one repaint everything else about the car looks original and correct. The Briar Rose/White color combination just screams 50’s and the crazy color breaks are must’ve been pretty outrageous when two-toning was just coming into vogue.
Found on Craigslist in Fort Wayne Indiana, the wagon looks to be fairly priced at $14,500

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 ‘one gal’ owner form new, this 1955 Belvedere is available for the first time in over 60 years. There has been one repaint that is described as ‘done the right way’ but otherwise this 70,028 mile Plymouth looks to be all original.

This Plymouth is listed on Craigslist in Lemon Heights, California with an asking price of $22,500.

Plymouth Volare’s were notorious rust buckets so finding a pristine example like this one is a rare feat! The dry Nevada air has helped immensely in keeping the rust at bay but this Volare is not only rot free but it’s clear that it has lived a charmed life away from the elements with no evidence of fade or patina. Faux wood wagons almost always have some wood fading but this one looks to be factory fresh. You can find this Volare on Ebay where it is being auctioned at no reserve.

The rise in competition from European imports that were affordable and economical led in part to the Big 3 introducing true compacts in model year 1960. Chevy had the Corvair, Ford the Falcon and Chrysler corporation introduced the Valiant which was supposed to be a brand of its own; in fact, you won’t see any Plymouth badging on a 1960 model nor was Plymouth or Chrysler mentioned in the advertising. Styling was, well controversial. You either loved them or hated them. Early Valiants were available with aluminum block engines shaving precious pounds away. By 1963 the aluminum block engines were gone due to reliability issues but the cast iron 225 was here to stay as it proved to be bullet proof.
This 1963 Valiant V200 which was the top level wagon, can be found on Hemmings with a negotiable price of $12,500. The owner originally purchase the car for his father in law who was looking for a Valiant wagon to restore. He had the quarter panels replaced, re-chromed the bumpers and had the car repainted.
