If the hyperbole was to be believed, the new Plymouths sitting in showrooms were originally intended to be models. The effect of the new Plymouth sent shock waves through the styling halls of both GM and Ford. And nowhere was the forward look more evident than in the wedge-shaped silhouette of the car. Low front fenders and hood, gently sloped windshield, a razor thin flat roof with tapered rear window, and rising fins created the wedge effect.
Convertibles and hardtops complemented the styling best, four door sedans probably compromising it at its worst. Station wagons, which usually adapted worst to a design, came off sleeker looking than the sedans. If the Plymouth had been airplane inspired, the clearly took its cues from space ships.
From the eye-browed headlights to the unobstructed greenhouse to the smooth clean sculptured sides, the idea of an earthbound space vehicle was everywhere. A redesigned, flatter, wider, lower frame and a switch to 14 inches wheels helped drop the Plymouth 5 inches lower than comparable models.
Likewise the was actually shorter than the it replaced. Later in the year during May production the frame was changed, the inner side of the box section on both rails discontinued at a point beginning at the rear spring hanger and extending forward about 18 inches to the frame kick-up section.
Everything had been done to make the car look long, low, and wide. The hood effectively split the headlights at their center line. Original plans had called for real dual headlamps, a move that required approval from each of the forty-eight states. Eight states failed to ratify the change in time, causing Plymouth to mount a parking lamp inboard of each single headlamp.
A massive front bumper split the grille into two parts, the bumper bar rising up slightly as it crossed the middle of the car, giving a slight barbell shape to the grille. Above the bumper sat the regular grille of thin horizontal bars adorned with a rather abstract version of the Mayflower ship.
Under the center part of the bumper was an ungainly looking vertically slotted underpan.
If there was an Achilles heel in the Plymouth design it was this underpan; dealers and customers alike complained, and by mid-January the pan, originally sporting six vertical slots, was changed, dividing each slot with a thin vertical bar. An optional bumper guard also helped hide the offending pan.
It was at the rear of the car that Flite Sweep styling really came into its own. Taillamp lenses completely filled the slightly canted, finned rear fenders; between the lamps was a large expanse of smooth deck lid broken only by the deck lid ornament. Once again the name Plymouth would only appear at the front of the car.
