Plymouth Belmont

Plymouth Belmont -

The Plymouth Belmont was a 1954 concept sports car. It (and the 1954 DeSoto Adventurer I concept car) were the first plastic-bodied cars by the Chrysler Corporation. The Belmont seated two and used a V8 engine, that produced up to 150 horsepower (110 kW). It was originally painted in a light blue metallic, it was painted red later. It was 191.5" long. Had it ever became a production model, its main competitors would have been the Chevrolet Corvette and the Ford Thunderbird.

Despite being badged as a Plymouth, the Belmont was marketed as a preview of the 1954 Dodge line. In the center arm rest were power antenna controls. The Belmont also had a removable cloth top and a separate spare tire compartment behind the seat. Unfortunately, the Belmont's design quickly became dated, and it was never produced.
