This particular Plymouth is a Coronado built by Chrysler in Belgium. Here's the story:Plymouth announced a line of extended wheelbase cars in 1958; the cars were to be built in Chrysler subsidiary "Societe Anonyme Chrysler" Antwerp, Belgium plant. Built on a 142" wheelbase (two feet over normal) the cars were built as Plymouth, Dodge Kingsway and DeSoto Diplomat models, although all were based on the Plymouth body shell. All were equipped with heavy duty front and rear suspensions including a front sway bar. The rear axle had a larger diameter ring gear, special ratios and heavy duty axle shafts. Power was by either the 230 cubic inch flathead six or the 318 V8. The name "Coronado" was not applied to these cars [at first] as far as I can tell (I have the 1958 brochure which does not use this name, at least for the Plymouth version). Transmission choices included a straight three speed or TorqueFlite automatic. Rear axle ratio was 4.1 with the straight stick, 3.73 with automatic. The chassis was a "rugged steel box frame with six extra cross members." V8 models came with power steering--tire size was 8:50x14" on six inch wide rims. To my knowledge, they were built thru the '62 model year. They were quite popular in my hometown of Geneva, Switzerland.

Thanks for the Coronado story. Interesting cars. I know of a 59 Chrysler that was converted this way. It may be a one off.

That is very interesting! The placement of the passenger doors and side glass reminds me somewhat of the 7 and 9 passenger Chrysler Windsor and New Yorker, and the DeSoto Powermaster from the postwar era.

Luis,

The mechanicals are straightforward Mopar parts. Look for 1961 Belvedere and Fury parts.
