And another on the other side of the road...

I'm sure there are others discernable in the stopped traffic too.

they must have been brand spanking new cars... most people are tooling around in old cars. You don't see any other real fins except those.

=============================

Very special 300D there. One seater, open car. Maybe Bill can tell us
more about the background on this one ? I had no idea 300D's were
built in this configuration.

I DO see a regular old police car at left. 59 Ford.

==============================

That photo is cropped, removing a single headlight 57 Imperial. If
you search this album, you can find the larger photo.

As for the state of the State, put too many animals in a small cage
and soon it is a cage full of crap. Same principle. Add in the libtard
politics and, well .... we all know what California is like these days.

Sorry Denis but you must be blind. What about that 56 Desoto that is staring you in the face, in the right hand southbound lane, closest to the photographer?

Doc I never saw this pic before, but they are many pictures they will be repeated. Even me sometimes didn't visit this thread for weeks.

People are pouring out of CA for the reasons that you are mentioning, their actual views of the country differ so much from the 40's 50's 60's that they sound from another planet. This is evident when you hear the CA "representatives" opinions on TV.

Yes Dave, sorry I'm blind or Fl cars prior to 57, I consider 57-61 the true Exner design revolution. 56 Cars looks like 55-54 and of that era I know absolutely nothing about it.

Actually, I have to look at the emblems to identify the make, so sorry if I keep missing them.

Geez, I read the book and I was pretty sure that Virgil Exner has his hand in the design of the 55 and 56 Chryslers, as part of the "Million Dollar" look, that moved the company away from the 48-54 designs and towards "Suddenly it's 1960"

Maybe the owners of this forum would like to rethink its scope then. Maybe it should just be for Torsion-Aire cars from 57 to 61. King pin cars not allowed or recognized. ?

Is not that Dave, you don't have to be a design specialist to identify the difference between the 57 Chubby and the 59.
55-56 Plymouth are in a different design style, more than in a transition form 54 prior. Remember that the 56 model was probably draw back in 1954.

I know for a fact that the 57 Imperial was first draw back in 1955, a year before your car went in to production.

The 1955 and 1956 bodies were based on the 1949-54 bodies while the 1957 bodies were completely new. Which is why the 1955-56 bodies were higher than the 1957 and there was little visual connection between the 1955-56 models and 1957. The 1955-56 models were the last of the Keller cars.

Chrysler management agreed on May 15, 1952 that the 1955 models would have "new" bodies, which is to say, the 1955 bodies would receive a major restyling but would still use floor, cowl and other structural members from 1954. Chrysler stylists had been working on giving the 1954 body a facelift but with GM and Ford giving their 1949-based bodies a major workover for 1955, facelifts would not do. And the new 1955 models had to be ready for production by the summer of 1954.

Chrysler management also approved a new V8 engine for the 1955 Plymouth on May 15, 1952. The new V8 would not be ready until the 1956 model year (the A block poly, built by Plymouth at the Mound Road engine plant north of Detroit). For 1955 Plymouth would use Dodge engines with poly heads. Chrysler was under pressure to produce cars and engines that at least were equal to the competition. The 1949-54 styling along with the lack of an automatic transmission cost Chrysler Corporation its #2 position in 1952 and Plymouth lost the #3 spot in 1954, falling to #5. If Chrysler did not come up with something competitive, it was felt Chrysler could end up fighting with Studebaker to be #3 in North America.

New 1955 DeSoto, Chrysler and Imperial designs were approved by the end of November, 1952 The final Plymouth and Dodge mock ups were not approved by management until May, 1953. Chrysler assembly plants shut down on August 13, 1954 and the first 1955 Plymouth rolled off the line on September 17, 1954.

Exner wanted brand new bodies for 1955 but styling and engineering would have had two years to design, approve and tool a completely new body. Not enough time, as would Chrysler prove with the 1957 bodies.

this was posted before for sure, and is a picture way in the 60's long after our cars were out of fashion....

He looks happier than she does, 'cause he's got the beer!

Also looks like a fuselage body Chrysler parked behind the '56 Dodge, check out the loop bumper, sidelight, and fender top turn signal indicator.
I'm not enough of an expert to tell the actual year from those though.

She certainly knows how to strike up a smiling and happy-looking pose for a picture...

The ring-pull can helps date the pic as a bit later than the fifties too!

Might not be quite the right place for this but...

Car Life Aug 1956.

Thad talking to Todd as he takes his McGregor golf club bag out of the trunk of his 1956 Plymouth Belvedere.

Nice shorts (and socks) there Todd
