Big, finned, Mopar wagons are some of my favorite old family haulers. This ’60 Plymouth Suburban station wagon is a great example of Virgil Exner styling at its most outrageous and has the biggest fins ever produced on a Plymouth. I would wager that there are very few of these left in existence.
This car was bought new in Nampa, Idaho. The original delivery tag is in the glove box with owners name, dealership info and delivery date. It also has the Nampa dealership emblem on the tailgate. Wearing a “Buttercup” yellow and “Oyster” white color combination, this car has a 318ci V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor and currently is not running.
The windshield is cracked and the radiator is out of the car (although it is included in sale). There are typical rusty areas, the floors, spare tire tub, rear quarter panel, but overall is in pretty good shape for sitting outside in Eureka, Montana for who knows how long. Seller claims paint is original with no body damage or Bondo. Many of these old wagons were cannibalized for their bits and pieces and this one is no exception.
The old gal is missing various parts (tail light lenses, headlight bezels, dash pad, etc.) that will be tough, if not impossible to find. Nonetheless, a very worthy restoration candidate as it stands.
