PLYMOUTH



CHRYSLER Motors gave up making a four-cylinder CHRYSLER model  in 1928. For this field they created the new make PLYMOUTH to compete against FORD and CHEVROLET.
So from the beginning on PLYMOUTH was a mass producer.
That means for the collector that most of PLYMOUTH emblems are in the one star category.

Here you see a rare exception: the 1933 hood ornament with integrated emblem.
Pay attention the wings  are often broken or shortened.

The PLYMOUTH emblem on top right is a rare find because of the original yellow enamel.
It is from the Lee Roy Hartung collection that was put up for auction in 2011.
Please look at my Lee Roy Hartung label. You find it in my alphabetical list.
