While driving North over the I-5 in Oregon, I spotted this Plymouth Plaza alongside the highway.

A real hard one. Just noticed that it might be a very early one and the front end and sheetmetal might be valuable.

It might very well been gone by now, it's been on Google Earth since I found it, so, the exact location should be widely known.
And hopefully someone has rescued it!

I agree a car like this does not belong in a salvage yard it belongs in some one's shop getting fully restored and running again

Someone would just turn it into a Red and White '58.

I've driven by there a few times, and either it was gone, Or I must have blinked at the wrong time. Judging by the other cars visible, it could be a demo derby driver's collection.

I want everyone to know that I just picked it up out of a wrecking yard where it has been sitting for several years. It didn't and won't ever go to the crusher. This is crazy but I just bought the car and just typed in google to get some ideas on colors and this pic popped up

I like the look of the early 1957 Plymmies! I am looking for a 1957 'Big Slot' lower grille. Marc.

Posting a photo can be done by selecting the 'Attach a file after posting' box
After submitting, you get a second screen in which you can select photos to upload.
Be aware of the maximum size of them!

LOL! Neither am I! But just go to your picture, right click on it, and select "open with" and choose paint. Then when it pops up in paint, select "resize". Put in something like 30 in the horizontal size box. Paint will automatically keep the ratio proper. Then click OK. You can then save your pic as a smaller size.

I've heard it said that either only the coolest of the cool, or the craziest of the nutters go
for Plazas. I can't remember which, but it is probably the latter.

Welcome to the club.
