eBay template information@RKMotorsCharlotte. com 5527 Lakeview Road. Charlotte. NC. 28269. US 1961 Plymouth Suburban Sport 64. 23 Actual Mile Suburban Sport Wagon Golden Commando 361 V8 3 Speed Survivor Year: 1961 Type of vehicle title: Clear Primary color: Blue Mileage: 64423 Transmission type: 3 Speed Manual Engine: 361 Golden Commando V8 Interior color: Blue Vehicle Info There's nothing quite like an extravagant American wagon. In the '40s and '50s. chrome-laden luxo-tanks served as ultimate line toppers that appealed to the most affluent buyers. In the '60s and '70s. highly adaptable family haulers ushered in a new era of cross-country travel. In the '80s and '90s. offerings like AMC's Eagle essentially birthed the crossovers we currently know and love. And now. thanks to low production numbers and perpetually cool presence. cars like this hulking Suburban Sport are providing hot rodders with unique cruisers for very lovable prices. A solid. Golden Commando 395-powered survivor. this 6-passenger Plymouth is a highly desirable rarity that affords one lucky MoPar enthusiast the ultimate opportunity to own an underappreciated classic. If you're looking for some of the coolest. most exclusive and most unique metal your money can buy. here's a lot of car for not a lot of money!Loosely based on designer Virgil Exner's 1957 styling theme. which proclaimed "Suddenly its 1960!". this '61 Suburban debuted to mostly negative fanfare. Nonetheless. that didn't stop the car's Wyoming-based owner from proudly protecting his investment. And. 53 years later. that dedication paid off as this Plymouth rolls as an exceptionally solid survivor. Decked in all too appropriate Robin Egg Blue and Alpine White. the car appears to have always been adult pampered. Its classy. curvaceous body reflects a smooth finish that exhibits minimal signs of wear and no major defects. Its original bumpers and straight stainless trim look almost as good as the day they left the showroom. And. despite what some might call awkward proportions and excessive brightwork. this graceful classic is both striking and handsome!Top of the line for Exner-era wagons. this first class Plymouth features substantial detailing. At the front of the car. a dramatic valance centers a massive. gold-trimmed grille between stainless eyebrows. heavy headlights and an exaggerated bumper. At the sides of that valance. 'knife edge' fenders flow into jet-age quarters behind polished flashings. flush-mount door handles and small stainless rocker guards. At the top of those fenders. a flat. "Plymouth" branded hood leads the eye to original glass. cleverly placed mirrors and straight stainless frames. And. opposite that hood. a "P L Y M O U T H" branded tailgate anchors chrome hardware and a small Golden Commando emblem between a stylized bumper and famous 'flashlight' tail lights. Like its Fury brethren. the Suburban was powered by a mix of 6 and 8-cylinder engines that ran the gamut from mild mannered grocery getter to gold toothed torque monster. Raise the car's long hood and you'll find a 361 cubic inch Chrysler big block that distills 305 horsepower into 395 lb. /ft. of torque. Officially known as the Golden Commando 395. that original "R36" mill wears a roster of correct components. from its bright gold air cleaner and much ballyhooed alternator all the way to its heavy duty radiator and Jiffy Jet washer reservoir. Fire is provided by a traditional points distributor. which sequences sparks through reliable CARQUEST suppression cables. Combustion comes courtesy of a Carter 4-barrel carburetor. which breathes through a correct intake and old school exhaust manifolds. The motor's clean aluminum valve covers present well against the car's Robin Egg engine bay. And little details like original decals. a pair of Sparton horns and a MoPar green cap battery round out a nice dose of eyeball appeal. Naturally. the bottom of this boulevard king looks as expected for a 53 year old survivor. In the middle of solid floors. an original heavy duty 3-speed sends power to a correct 8. 75-inch rear end. At the front of those floors. wide turns and firm feel come courtesy of correct manual steering. At the edges of those floors. solid. fade-free stops are provided by sturdy drum brakes. The big V8 barks a deep. civilized demeanor through a true-dual exhaust system that employs small. glasspack-style mufflers. All that road-worthy hardware rides on tough Cragar Radirs. which spin 215/75R15 Coker Classic whitewalls in front of 225/70R15 BF Goodrich whitewalls. And everything. from the car's clean oil pan to its leak-free fuel tank. is functional. reliable and ready to roll!Inside this Plymouth. you'll find a mostly original interior that has enough room to haul the whole family in comfort. The car's Command Seat front and standard rear bench feature attractive. two-tone vinyl. Close cut pile carpet. which is protected by massive floor mats. does an excellent job of highlighting relaxed. airy ambiance. Above that carpet. a stylish dash founds a space-age day/night mirror over gorgeous TeleView telemetry. clean Bakelite buttons and a correct AM radio. At the sides of that dash. fantastic door panels display prominent Exner design behind fresh stainless trim. bright chrome handles and sculpted armrests. Above those panels. painted A-pillars lead the eye to a tight headliner that's adorned with vintage speakers. In front of the driver. a semi-square Aero steering wheel spins a metal flake rim around an intricate horn button. And behind the passengers. a matted storage compartment frames ample luggage space. The sale of this full-bodied MoPar includes a vintage Owner's Manual and a small collection of historic documents. This stunning Plymouth people mover is a clean. fully sorted classic that's poised for many years of shows and road trips. As some of the most unique metal on the market. it oozes the kind of personality that's only found in '60s-era specialty cars.
