1951 Plymouth Concord

Basic design remained the same for 1951 Plymouths, including the all new Concord. A few minor changes were made to the appearance of the grille and front hood design.  Overall the quality consisted of a welded steel body set upon an arc-welded frame with double-channel box section side rails and five crossmembers. The Concord Suburban was a two seat economy station wagon while the Savoy replaced the Special Deluxe Suburban and included standard equipment such as front and rear armrests, rear passenger assist straps, rear seat side storage compartments and sliding central windows.  The Savoy was offered as Plymouth’s luxury station wagon since the “woodie” was dropped from the P-23 series. Under the hood, all Plymouths had the same engine, a 217 cu. in. 6-cylinder maneuvered by a 3-speed manual transmission, which didn’t fair too bad against its competitor’s V8 engines with only 13 hp less.  The 1951 Plymouths also had greater generator output, windshield wipers were electrically operated, and the engine featured a by-pass cooling system.
