That was a good one. Full of 56 Dodge Coronet 4dr Lancer Hardtop and 56 Plymouth Belvedere Convertible. Too bad it was in Black and White.

Not a movie, but from the Twilight Zone, Someone can post the photo. Such a beautiful car, and a very rare sight even back then. 286 made of these beauties.

My subconscious thought that the car used for the trunk hideout in Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome, was a Packard because of the added fins & the unrecognized rear bumper. But looking at it recently, I realized that the quarters are from a '56 Plymouth and the added fins are likely from a '57-'58 Dodge. Not sure what the bumper is from, but maybe a '56 Dodge?

Yep, that makes more sense now. Odd how the upper fins are just tacked on like that.

In the realm of whimsical and visually stunning storytelling, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' isn't just a film; it's a cinematic tapestry woven with Wes Anderson's signature charm and meticulous attention to detail. Released in 2014, this quirky comedy-adventure takes viewers on a delightful journey through the fictional Republic of Zubrowka. The film's ensemble cast, led by Ralph Fiennes, and Anderson's distinctive visual style create a world that is both eccentric and endearing on 0123movies. 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' isn't just a favorite; it's a whimsical escape into a meticulously crafted universe of storytelling brilliance.

58 Plymouth cvt in a used car lot in 1964. 50 bucks and a more or less worthless early 50s Chevy trade in. IIRC around minute 17+ , 59 Plymouth in the beginning

Manual brakes and no Golden Commando either. Yes, IMO bumper wings are a must for the 57/58, just like the grille guard for the 60.

Not sure if this was mentioned but the family car in Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation with Jimmy Stewart was a 1960 Dodge Polara Wagon.
