belvedere

The Plymouth Belvedere is an American automobile that was produced by Plymouth from 1954 to 1970.

The belvedere name was first used for a new hardtop body style in the Plymouth Cranbrook line for the 1951 model year.  In 1954, the belvedere replaced the Cranbrook as the top trim and became a full model line with sedans, station wagons and convertible body styles.  The Belvedere continued as Plymouth’s full-sized car until 1965, when it became an intermediate, and was replaced after the 1970 model year by the Satellite, a name originally used for the top-trim level Belvederes.  It was also used in a movie called Christine (1983) it was 1958 Plymouth Belvedere. This specific car was used in the film Walk the Line in 2005.

All Plymouths were treated to a major overhaul for the 1955 Model year.  This was the first year of Chrysler Stylist Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look.”  The Belvedere returned as top-of-the-line.
