|1957 Plymouth Belveder 4 door Hardtop, Paul B. 2nd Car
Paul's 2nd car, '57 Plymouth Belvedere 4 door Hardtop. 318 Cid with Stromberg
adjustable main jet tri-power carbs. 27 MPG unless you stepped on it. Cost around $2500.00 with automatic transmission
I raced this car at the Arlington Drag-strip and in Abbortsford, Canada in the '50s. The tri-power
end carbs were controlled by a T-handle on the dash board which allowed for more precise control.
After the car was broadsided in '60 it never handled right again and was traded in 1962 for twin 1956 Plymouth Station wagons.
(My family was growing!)
