Beautiful, distinct, and rarely-seen make this 1959 Plymouth Suburban 9-person wagon an outstanding total package. And not only does this have a great color combo and V8 power, but also there are some terrific docs. It makes for a head-turning classic that has a story to tell.
This is a car that defines an era. A two-tone wagon with plenty of brightwork is exactly how you want to represent the inspiration of the 1950s. This Suburban's impressiveness starts with the paint. The Powder Blue and Iceberg White is the factory-correct combo, and there was a respray within the last few years to keep it looking vibrant. It has been stated that this car has been under the care of one family its whole life, and so the whole package is done with the right look to have worn its history well. That's why all the intricate trim appears complete and quite original. The distinct quad headlight front end, wide chrome bumpers, and classic tailfins rising from the rear fender create a great total package. Even the classic wheel covers with whitewalls have a terrific coordinating style. So we bet you're already imagining spending the day at the car show with the tailgate open for a picnic-style afternoon.
The interior has a terrific vintage look and feel where the investments seem to be about retaining the classic style. The two-tone dark and light blue is especially nice with a high-quality look, and an intricate cloth insert that seems to intertwine the two colors. Everything here has a terrific classic style - from the bright window cranks to the AM radio that's still on display. In fact, this is even a factory air conditioning car (it will need servicing to blow cold.) This is a rarer 9-person wagon, and so you get the cool third row of seats that mean more family and friends get to come along for a ride. So it's great that this one is built for comfortable cruising. You get nice vintage details, like the artful steering wheel and classic controls. That's supplemented by a cleanly installed auxiliary gauge trio so you can get a full picture of what's going on in the engine bay.
Under the hood is a 318 cubic-inch V8 motor that looks factory-correct right down to bold red block and valve cover treatment. In fact, this is believed to be the original motor in this family-owned wagon. It's a strong-running powerhouse, and best of all, you get ideal control over the V8 with the useful three-speed manual transmission that also includes handy highway-friendly overdrive option. So this one really was made for driving.
The sale comes complete with the dealer invoice, owner's manual, title documentation, maintenance records, service manuals, and build receipts. Plus, the original window sticker is great to show off all the rare options this has had since new. So while a two-tone wagon is always cool, you can see this one has the pedigree to stand out in every crowd. Don't miss this deal, call today!
