    This was good for third place on some charts, fourth on others. These "Total-Contact" brakes, continuing the two-cylinders-per-front wheel and one-per-rear-wheel setup used for years, were available with optional power assists. The stacked quad headlight bezels were curvier and set more deeply into the body, giving the car a more muscular look.

    Cars by name Trucks and Jeeps. By Lanny Knutson; courtesy of the Plymouth Bulletin. Suddenly, it was Now what would the real bring? With its lines low and wide and its fins high, Plymouth joined its corporate siblings in wresting automotive styling leadership from General Motors, which had assumed the "styling leadership" mantle as if by divine decree.

    Under the sleek body was a new chassis bearing a revolutionary suspension design featuring torsion bars at the front. The car was no slouch in the engine department either and its new Torqueflite transmission would become legendary. But now it was , and what would they do for an encore? Just a few years later, "expert" automotive pundits would have people believing that the problem was with the fins. Outlandish, flamboyant, many would say.

    Almost a caricature of the gracefully rising fin, the "Stabilizers" as Chrysler officially called them rose with a very sudden and pronounced arc to a great height at the end of the car, leaving a massive expanse of slab sided sheet metal. The pundits would later say so.

    But that was after , when GM had definitely reclaimed the automotive styling crown with its new squared-off and mildly sculpted cars. It was , after all, and was still - for one more year anyway - the era of the fin.

    But, as in many other aspects, that car was far ahead of its time in body construction. Stung by a somewhat deserved bad reputation for its often poorly-assembled cars, which had a propensity to rust, Chrysler answered with what it advertised as its "Solid Plymouth," often pictured with massive bridge girders, tunnels, dams and other examples of engineered strength.

    What those images promoted was a weld unibody construction. Framed much like a bridge truss, the body was made up of box section rails that extended upward from the sills, outlining the windows along side the roof before descending to a foundation near the rear wheel openings.

    Yet, without the frame they replaced, these girders actually helped reduce the weight of the car. There was a frame, however - a subframe, bearing the engine and "Torsion-Aire" front suspension, that was bolted to unitized body.

    This arrangement allowed the front fenders to be more easily removed for repair or replacement than those of the completely unitized Rambler. Remember when Plymouth had last advertised the advantages of removable fenders? Before the body panels were welded together, the seams were "shot" with a special welding sealer that was designed to expand under the heat of the drying ovens where the body was placed after it had been painted.
