I really don't have fond memories of the St. Louis plant. In the late '90s our Chrysler TC by Maserati club wanted to visit the plant for one of our club activities. Due to the fact the TC was not totally built in the USA (some minor assembly/emissions were required once they hit the shore), the union would not let us park our cars in the plant parking lot. This was a total surprise to us so we decided to forgo the visit and went to the Auto and Train Museum instead. Glad we did - it was great! They even had my favorite MoPar of all time there - the Chrysler Turbine Car.

Notice how the fins, the star showing of the model, are minimised or obliterated?

I'd suggest it's from the end of the model run.

The convertible picture makes me curious also. It is a '57 Plymouth but has 1958 on the license frame and what appears to be a dent in the rear bumper. I wonder if someone did some more recent creative photography to make them appear old.

I've known them, there are more photos.
In the studio and in the open air, all years.
But it was a different webside.

All those photos appear to be from photo shoots for the Chrysler Corporation. Different locations, different positions of the cars, etc. Have a nice shot of a 1960 Imperial LeBaron taken in front on old abandoned building. That same photo appeared in the 1960 Imperial brochure, but parked in front of a very posh mansion.

The photos are actually from the collection of AACA - Antique Automobile Club of America. They have photos going back over a hundred years and have various photos on sale on eBay. The reds are not holding up well in these photos. A problem even with red paints in the 1940's.

The 1957 convertible not only has the 1958 plate but also a 1957 Plymouth trunk emblem and a dealer emblem.

The St.Louis plant was rather busy for the 1960 model year, assembling -

Dart - 46,716
Plymouth - 46,629
Valiant - 16,109
Matador/Polara - 1,974

The Polara was gone from the St.Louis line for 1961 and replaced by the Lancer.

The photo of the factory line has a Matador sedan in front of the two tone Belvedere sedan. Can't tell if there are any more Matadors or Polaras further ahead.

The grill in that DeSoto Diplomat grill reminds me of some English cars. Maybe the Anglia or the Minx.
