Plymouth had a long history before ceasing to exist in 2001. The company was founded in 1928 as Chrysler’s lower cost division. And through the 1940s and 50s, Plymouth was able to do solid duty against the Fords and Chevys of the day. In the 1960s Muscle Car heyday, Plymouth made some of the coolest machines on the road. GTXs, Road Runners and ‘Cudas were the envy of the stoplights and the Drag Strips.
