Have I told you lately that we have the best readers on the web? For example, we received this tip from Marcal (Thanks Man!) about a curious Plymouth that’s listed on Craigslist. It is probably the nicest 1951 Plymouth in existence, and everything has been rebuilt, restored, repainted, or replated. Make the jump to see more…
According to the listing:
This is a rare Plymouth Concord 2 door sedan fastback. Everything works like new. Only 1450 miles.

There is a reason why Plymouths of this vintage are Collector Car Bargains… They really have little to no following. However, I feel that this is one very desirable postwar Plymouth, and the asking price isn’t really out of the question at $14,000. I would imagine the 1,450 miles were put on the car after this extensive restoration. See the listing here, and tell me that this isn’t the most adorable fastback Plymouth you’ve seen in ages.
