Otherwise you'll have a hardcore FL surfing through those pic's.

Yup. thats the ad. I think it would look great, especially with that interior color. Please send/post pics as soon as you can! I have never seen a 61 in real life, that color let alone a wagon.

There was an unrestored '61 Wagon in the retro dealership display at Carlisle last year. Hope it's back this year, I bought parts from its owner; he had a booth in the vendor area.

Hi Rob,

Yeah, I talked to the guy. I think his name is Mike. Cool dude. I believe the car you are talking about was a "Salmon" colored car?

Adriana,

I don't know where you got this picture:

1961-Plymouth-Savoy-Deluxe-Suburban-airforce-blue-A-640.jpg

But that is my car! Since it was never driven in the winter, it pretty much looks just like that today. But as I noted in my email to you, the air force blue is not the original color. I was back in Ohio this weekend but had no time to even lift the garage door to take a peek at it.

Dave

Yes, PistolGrip, the '61 Wagon at Carlisle was Salmon in color with an aero wheel.

The wagon looks so cool with the rocket pod lights on the sides.

Always wondered why they didn't have the 2 horizontal trim strips on the tailgate go all the way across in one continuous strip like they do on the sedans.

Picture was taken 1984 so I don`t have any clue how much it sold for. Same problem with the colour... Pictures are scanned from paper pictures so true colour is very difficult to see. Here is another one from the same wagon.

Is it just me, or do other people find the 61 Plymouth and Dodge look 100 times better in person ? Yeah sure, they look fine in the photos, but get up next to one and they really are exciting ! I was out helping my brother chase a fuel problem with his Polara last weekend and find I always marvel at how striking that car is up close and personal. Photos just don't do it justice.

I am so glad to see wagons finally getting the positive attention they deserve. Three cheers for Wagon Fever !

Adriana, FWIW (not-much) , I really like the 61 PLY's front end appearance without that optional grille guard guy disrupting
the appearance of the waterfall-like grille.

If anyone recalls Paul Garlick's having created a 1961 Plodge, by adding a PLY front clip to a DOD body, you will recall
that the over-all appearance of the car was VERY attractive.

As the 61 DOD/PLY's were completely different from the 60's, it's too bad that the DOD didn't have what turned out to be
the 61 PLY grille, and, the 61 PLY grille is not all that different, from the 62 DOD, AND.....the 62 PLY has a grille not-all-that-
different, from the 61 DOD!!!!

Hmmmm...maybe they WERE switched at birth, in 1961.

Funny thing this 1962 Chrysler Station Wagon is almost identical to the 1961 Plymouth Wagon But is not considered Forward Look.

Ian has forcefully argued 'this' point, in the past!

This car has a 1961-ish front end AND a very-1961-ish carry-over body.

what does the front of that '62 wagon look like? the back is almost the same except for the tail lights. i attached a pic of the garlick car... it has the dodge tail end and the plymouth front end! looks fabulous! yeah neil, i dont like the fury bumper much either, makes the car look angry! my wagon has the standard bumper but also comes with an extra fury bumper. cheers adriana

*********************************

Look, we are all a little "whacked" for liking these cars, but those who have to hop oceans to get them have to be a little "extra whacked" ! I can only imagine how this wagon is going to stand out like some lunar lander in Australia ! You must be very driven to own such an out of place rig, but I trust with all this effort, you are going to love every minute of it ! Photos do not capture the "presence" these have very well. You will be very happy, I am sure !

i am very happy! it is my dream car! and i hunted one down and took the plunge and bought it! mad thing to do when you are only 19, but what can i say. it will be the only '61 plymouth suburban over here! there are 2x 4-doors and a coupe over here though (in another state, only one of the 4doors is on the road) so i am very excited and cant wait to start restoring it when it gets here! i absolutely adore the '61 plymouths and inparticular the suburbans. ive been bought up with american cars my whole life, so thought id save up and get one of my own! thanks for all the kind words and info. as soon as it arrives i'll take some pics and post them! cheers adriana

I'm a fan of factory options as much as anyone, but , MAN! that 61 PLY grille/bumper guard just ruins (imho) the shape-
apearance of the water-fall grille.

It gives the car a sort of 'under-bite' , or angry Bull Dog, look.


You will REALLY like its "Jetson's" space age dashboard and square (optional, right?) steering wheel!

yeah i know what you mean! some options i like for the '61's is the astro wheel! and the mascara inserts (not sure of there proper name, but the chrome inserts that fit above the headlights!) if anyone has either of these two things spare id be interested in purchasing them! my wagon has the am radio and heater options, for a (bottom of the range) deluxe suburban thats ok, i guess! cheers adriana

i like the bumper grille bar and can't stand the "mascara inserts" it looks mean and powerfull without but with the bright headlight trim it looses the sinister look, makes it look like bambi, also that headlight trim looks out of place looking from the side, it spoils the lines. also the front end looks less unique since the headlight trim makes the headlight area look like a part of the grille, giving it a squarish look. but i love the optional front fender chrome spears.

people either love or hat the fury bumper or mascara inserts. i kind of agree, i think that the mascara inserts look good on some body colours (usually the darker ones) and out of place on other (usually lighter colours) i like that little chrome bit that goes down the side of the fender, gives it a kinda custom edge! i dont like the fury bumper for the sinister reason, looks like it will run you down and eat you! lol. what are the fender spears? have you got a picture? i really need to get my hands on a '61 accessories catalogue! cheers adriana

And here are some pics of the 61 fury sedan Adriana is talking about, owned by me! I love these cars good to see that they are begining to get noticed, bout time I also own 50's ch***vys, Cad**ys and F*%ds but my fury is my fav probably because of its futuristic space age, jetsons styling and it was the car I learned to drive in at age 11! She is a Canadian built rhd unit (60 ply dash),built for export to India where it was owned by a catholic bishop.

Having had a '61 also - my take is they look best without the grill bar AND without the headlight inserts - less is more! But TEHO, and it's a good thing that we don't all like the exact same things! I think they look best in light colors also.

I'd certainly consider the '62 Chrysler wagon as a FL - it had the exact same body as the '61, and the Dodge Custom 880 continued that body right through '64 - while the styling was toned down and refined slightly, it is clearly still a Forward Look car, the very last of the breed. Chrysler Corp continued with that body due to popular demand for a full size Dodge car and they didn't have the resources to reskin it in the way that they did with the '63/64 Newport/NY/300. Forward Look was basically an advertising slogan that was not used in ads after '59, as far as I can recall. We now arbitrarily label all the cars 55-61 that way, but the '62-64 cars above were the carryover version of the same cars. They are classic FL cars, as opposed to the stillborn full size '62 DeSoto/Dodge which was cancelled for production by late 1960, and which looked like a larger 62 Dodge Dart/440 & 62 Plymouth cross. I have pics of it in Richard Langworth's excellent Postwar Chrysler book - (now out of print).

yes, too true roger, if we all liked the same thing, it would be very boring to go to a car show/ cruise. all the cars would be same colour, same model- how boring! and even though you wouldnt choose to own certain cars, or choose to option them like someone else has, you can still appreciate them for what they are! roger, tell the new owner of your plymmie to post pictures of his resto progress, would love to see them! thankyou chris for your pictures! sid, i know what you mean now, think i miss read, thought you meant bumper spears! lol. fabulous! keep the photos coming! cheers adriana

What's interesting, about this '62 wagon, is that in 1961, the CHRY wagon body was a 100% carry-over, from 1960's
finned body, but the front clip was pretty-much identical to what you see HERE, carried over to the 1962 model, and,
this 1962 wagon-body was carried-over, from the 1961 small-body wagons.

So, THIS car is PURE FWDLK!

hmmm, that '62 wagon looks funny to me (now seeing the front view). i adore the '61 plymouth wagons and i adore the '61 chrysler wagons, but i would rather one of each not them both warped in to the same car! i find it wierd. anyway thats just my opinion. found the auction, ozzie. Gees, $200! mine is in heaps better nic than that one! if anyone comes across the mascara inserts for sale could you please let me know, or if you have a spare pair yourself that you wish to sell! cheers adriana

Hi Adriana! I got the pics you sent of your car! It looks way cool and think it should be an easy restoration! If you need any parts or help with your car, there is local guy, Smitty, who you may find on the FL.net every now and again who may be able to help you out with some of the parts your looking for. Here is his website......

P.S. I've been working on the '61 Plymouth web page and hope to get it finished up soon! I'll be sure to let you all know!
