1958 Plymouth Belvedere
1960 Belvedere

Introduced on March 31, 1951, the 1951 Plymouth Belvedere arrived as a two-door pillarless hardtop. It was Plymouth's first vehicle of such design and was built in response to Chevrolet's Bel Air. The 1951 Belvedere was not a separate model - rather, it was the top-trim Cranbrook and being built on that car's 118.5 in wheelbase gave the two-door Belvedere favorable proportions. The Belvedere came in several body styles through the years and 1970 was the last year for the Belvedere name plate.

Because of recent spam attacks on Mediawiki sites by the tens of thousands of spammers concerned with the length, girth and hardness of our Johnsons, we have had to temporarily disable new registrations and editing until measures can be taken to ensure there is no further vandalism of this site. We apologize for the assholes out there that don't have better things to do, and will find a work around soon. Meanwhile, there are still thousands of MoparWiki pages containing a wealth of information.
