single frame: Plymouth 8

As I made digital photos of the cars at the Mecum auction each year, I always photographed the card in the windshield that told the car’s make, model, and year. But I did it with my digital cameras, not my film cameras — why waste the film on those cards? But then when the negatives and scans came back from the processor, I sometimes couldn’t match the photo to the car it came from.

This is one of those times. Clearly, this is from a Plymouth, and it had a V-8 engine. That’s all I know. If you know more, do tell in the comments.

    What is a 1955 Plymouth, Alex. I will admit that I had to do some googling, but I knew it had to be pre 1957. It’s a detail I had never looked at closely before.

    If you cropped it square I’m seeing an album cover.
