Nineteen-sixty was a big year for the Chrysler Corporation. To address quality issues from the 1957 Forward Look, engineers decided to go with unitized construction for all brands save Imperial.

The interior features light blue and white vinyl upholstery accentuated by blue cloth inserts. Conveniences in this Plymouth includes power steering, AM radio, Chrysler Corporation’s famous push-button automatic transmission, and dashboard-mounted rearview mirror.

The instrument panel consists of a 120-mph speedometer, clock, and gauges indicating the fuel level and coolant temperature. The odometer reads 48,384 miles.

Powering this vehicle is the standard Plymouth V8, a 230-horsepower “wide-block” 318 known as the Fury V-800, A three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission delivers reliable performance.

This vehicle comes factory-equipped with an independent front suspension combined with a solid rear drive axle for a balanced ride. Braking is effectively handled by manual four-wheel drum brakes. The vehicle also features a dual exhaust system that exits at the rear.
