Canadian cars came with slight trim variations, this is one of them for 57. 57 Plodge came with some Canada only bits also. they put the manufacturer on the backs since it was no where.

Canadian Chrysler had better documentation and thought stuff out more I believe because they had a chance to fix errors as it was handed down. Their manuals are much better than US stuff. Good luck finding one, those seem like unobatanium…

Chrysler Canada put the name on the rear of the 1957 Plymouth (P30, P31) and 1957 Dodge (D64, D65) as the public would not be able to tell them apart from the rear. Yes, the rear deck lid lift had stylized sails on the Plymouth while Dodge had a warrior's head, but they were not very big. Thus the nice nameplates -

Plymouth, part number 1696 702
Dodge, part number 1757 180

Neither number appears in the U.S. 1957 parts catalogue - only the Canadian.

Yes, I actually have the Canadian parts catalogues (they were published annually) from 1949 to 1968. Plus some scattered years before WW II and in the 1970's.

I just picked up a Seattle Auto frame I didn't have. I didn't know the history on the dealer so thanks.


Seattle Automobile Co. was one of the oldest automobile dealers in Seattle, it began business in the early 20th century, probably in 1910's. It was known earlier exclusively as a Packard dealer and I remember one of their former buildings is still known as historical "Seattle Automobile Building". I do not have any information when they started as Chrysler-Plymouth dealer and why their business got smaller after the glory days of first half of the century.The family who bought my Chrysler as new remembers it was a small dealership at that time and the car was delivered late to the dealer and that it was a bargain because of the '58 models coming soon. Some car guys from Seattle who had been around in 60s and 70s had no memories at all of a Chrysler dealer by that name. I have no information when they have gone out of business but last bit of history I've found was company's owner's obituary from mid-1960s.

I actually made an repro version of my frame so it matches better with the restoration result :D The one in the pic above is the original.


Here's a 1960 Chrysler that was sent to Seattle Auto Co. The thread below shows the window sticker.

My 1960 DeSoto Adventurer had Marmie Motors, Great Bend, Kansas, painted on the trunk lid. It has since been painted over. Marmie Motors is now Barton Motors, and still a Mopar dealer.

Here is the plate frame for my 300F's dealer. Below it is the one I need for my new wagon.
