Plymouth Progres for 12 years
I continue the theme of "Plymouth" https://detroit-diesel8.livejournal.com/287315.html a swag of two units from 1941 and 1953. As you understand, in the USA there were several types of prospectuses for different clients. Different hillbilly with a hole in the ass received flyers, potential customers were sent by mail small-size leaflets. More respected, but slightly dubious characters acquired black and white versions. Not with photos, but with drawings, which is typical. And only wealthy gentlemen (seemingly) were given prospectuses with color printing. Here is such a table of ranks.
After the war, in the wake of the economic growth and improvement of printing, the prospectuses became mostly colored, although painted.
12 years, and what changes in design!
It should be understood that Plymouth produced essentially the same model. But with a different decor and body. It was a common American practice. Only in the 60s compacts and mid-size appeared. The avenue itself is cheap - i.e. from one sheet, not cut without clips. This reduced the cost. That's just to watch it is not convenient, and scan too troublesome.
The frame of the 1941 model was very solid. Pay attention to the X-shaped cross member. With a special city, advertising reports that there are "airplane-type" pipe amotizers at the back! Front still lever
In 1953, the frame became lighter, since much of the load was distributed to the body. "Airborne" amotizator already and front and rear.
In 1953, there was no automatic box on the Plymouth, but there was a modification that automatically switched on after over-speeding (25 km / h) (overdrive).
Some features of the 1941 model. Chain drive camshaft (because less noise). As for the engines, then there and there stood a row lower six valve. Only in 1953 did she develop 100 hp. at 3600 rpm with a working volume of 217.8 cu. inches (3.6 l). 12 years ago, the figures were such 201.3 inches volume (3.3 liters) and 87 hp power. Of course, in the old SAE, it is therefore desirable to subtract 10%. Those. 90 and 79 hp
