Produced by the Plymouth division of Chrysler from 1951-1953, the Plymouth Cranbrook is a practically designed automobile that replaced the Plymouth Special Deluxe. The car was created with a more conservative crowd in mind, and aimed to please a market that was captivated by the “low and sleek look”.
For 1953, the boxier shape of the earlier production Cranbrooks was spruced up with straighter lines creating a sleeker and more modern styling. The windshield was now a one-piece unit (rather than the 2-piece from 1951-1952)
This 1953 Plymouth Cranbrook has always been well maintained. 49,764 original miles, starts right up, doesn’t smoke, and is incredibly quiet. The paint and body is in great condition especially for its age, but interior needs a little focus as indicated in photos. Car is a ton of fun to drive, think it would be hard to find something else that get as much attention or thumbs up from people at this price.
