This 1953 Plymouth Suburban Restomod is a cool two-door wagon. And beneath its classic-style minty green paint is a full performance suspension, six-speed manual transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, full custom A/C interior, and performance-built 408ci fuel-injected V8. So this is already an awesomely attractive Mopar before you know the celebrity connection.
Those who follow Rutledge Wood will instantly recognize this special Plymouth. And remember, he claims that he got this car from Richard Petty before staring the full custom build. Oh yeah, this is one special grocery-getter. The Seafoam Green is exactly the color you want on a sleeper like this. It's a quality application that will have people thinking about nostalgia. And the white roof matching the whitewalls is pure '50s cool. It's complete and vintage, right down to the Plymouth hood ornament setting sail on the front. So unless people pick up hints like how the stock-style color-matched wheels are a modern size or the you turn on the LED headlights, you can go incognito about the real power within.
The interior starts to reveal the full custom attitude. It starts with the two rows of tan and brown two-tone seating that is far more intricate than anything that came out of the 1950s. The premium color on these is shared with the custom side panels, carpeting, and center console. In total, this one has that great uniform appearance that everyone loves to see at the car shows. But this build was also meant to be a real cruiser, too. It has great features to keep everyone happy on the open road, including a Kicker Bluetooth stereo interface, cup holders, and a well-integrated ice-cold air conditioning system. But like any good custom classic, the best treats are reserved for the driver. The steering wheel is wrapped to match the interior, and the factory gauges have been refreshed with a bright backlit. And you know that cue ball shifter is calling out for your right hand.
A cool custom Plymouth like this deserves a strong Mopar powerhouse in the engine bay. This 408 cubic-inch V8 has been dressed to impress with the color-matched air topper, smooth inner walls, and a show-ready polish. This fuel-injected stroker motor came from the performance masters at BluePrint Engines. It's built with the best performance pieces, including Edelbrock aluminum heads, forged pistons, hydraulic flat tappet camshaft, and a FAST FI system. Summit headers add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. And you have complete control over this enhanced V8 and its powerful soundtrack thanks to the T56 six-speed transmission with a McLeod clutch and a Quick Time conversion bellhousing. Power get to the ground via Ford 9-inch rear end with Strange Engineering axle shafts and a Detroit Locker Truetrac differential. And as you check out the ultra-clean undercarriage photos, you'll also spot more upgrades like the Heids Mustang II-style independent front end and four-link rear w/adjustable coilovers. This great driving package is finished off with power steering and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes.
How often do you get an opportunity to own a famous build that was finished to the kind of quality where it was also shown at SEMA? Oh yes, this is a fleeting opportunity at a high-performance custom that has a ton of press. So not only is it a celebrity build, but also you'll be a celebrity every time you get behind the wheel.
