Plymouth Motors was founded by Walter P. Chrysler in 1928. It was said the name Plymouth was formed to resemble freedom, endurance, strength and ruggedness. It was eventually called the Plymouth Motor Corporation. It became Chrysler’s division which sold the lowest-priced cars. It generated some sales but even the low price wasn’t able to save it from the aftermath of the Great Depression.
During the 1930′s, Plymouth once again attempted an entry to the market by releasing its first station wagon, only to be disappointed again because of the failure to captivate what the consumers wanted in a car at that time.
However, the 70′s brought new hope to Plymouth, thanks to the huge success of its Plymouth Valiant and Plymouth Duster. The Plymouth Valiant was specially made as Chrysler’s entry to the compact car market. It was famous for its radical 6-Slant engine and was the model for Chrysler Engineering’s aluminum die-casting. The Valiant has undergone a lot of redesigning in the next couple of years. The Plymouth Duster on the other hand was a semi-fastback version of the Valiant. It was the portrayal of the performance and the youthful look that Plymouth desired. And Plymouth Motors finally hit the button. They offered the car that exactly matched what the buyers wanted: new and exciting. It was so hot-selling that even the Dodge asked Chrysler for their own version of it called the Plymouth Scamp. Towards the end of the 70′s, Plymouth nearly lost its name because of the steep competition between Chrysler and Dodge cars while Plymouth remained to be step-child to the Chrysler corporation because of not having its own line of vehicles.
In the 90′s, Plymouth decided to resurrect the brand by introducing the Plymouth Prowler, the first Plymouth car that was ever sold after 30 years. Sadly, in the year 2001, the last of the Prowler’s faded in history without any recognition. Today, Plymouth still continues to thrive in the hearts of enthusiast around the globe, proving that world-class innovation need not to be heavy on the pocket.
There are so many things you could do as a Plymouth car owner to make your vehicle look at its best. This means getting the best parts to improve both image and performance.
A Plymouth car is known for its reliability and affordability. Therefore, it’s just right to pamper it and reserve its squeaky clean paint and finish. Protect it by getting a Plymouth bumper. Bumpers serve both an aesthetic and practical function. Bumpers are made of heavy sheet metal and are mounted on the front and rear of the car. Bumpers are bent and formed into specific shapes in order to absorb and deliver momentum during a collision. So you can spice up your car while still getting one of the beast safety measures.
Image is not the only the thing that matters when having a Plymouth car. Performance matters as well. In improving performance, you will need every part that could guarantee this. There are various Plymouth parts that can help you, and one of them is the oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor is positioned in the exhaust pipe. Its main goal is to help the engine function as efficiently as possible and to release less emissions. In doing this, it must determine the “perfect” ratio for the gasoline and air mixture needed for an efficient performance. This particular mixture can’t be rich or lean, it must be perfect and the oxygen sensor determines this by generating a voltage through a chemical reaction that determines and adjusts this mixture. When the oxygen sensor does not function well, it results in poor engine performance and increased use in fuel.
These two parts alone can prove how much benefits you can get in getting only the best and genuine Plymouth car parts. So the next thing you should do is to determine what your car needs to in order to perform just the way you like it.
