I’d been admiring this Plymouth’s blocky solidity for ten years, whenever its owner and I happen to workout at the Y simultaneously. I can count on its reassuring, unchanging, seemingly immortal presence at least a couple of times a month, an anchor of constancy in this turbulent world. And you can’t get much more anchor-like than this cast-iron 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook. But anchors sink, and this car began Plymouth’s long dive into the deep blue.

The Plymouth Cranbrook, as a car, was conservatively styled, designed to fit K.T. Keller's notion that cars be practical and allow drivers to sit upright while wearing a hat; it was sold at a time when competitors favored the low and sleek look. Differences between the 1950 Special Deluxe and the 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook are relatively few in number and scope, with interchangeable glass and doors, but different rubber seals; lack of woodgrain on the instrument panel; plastic brake handle instead of chrome; and other similar changes. More substantial was having what had been the hood release handle function as the overdrive control. Fender lettering and other badging necessarily changed as well. From a distance, the cars were essentially similar.
1951 Plymouth Cranbrook Convertible. Only 20. 32 miles. Recently refreshed since this extremely solid classic really did not need any extensive restoration work. Excellent driver. Runs. Drives. and Looks GREAT. Although this one might need some fine tinkering here and there to make it into an exquisite Barrett-Jackson showpiece. it is an absolutely astounding classic car that has been completely gone through. and that you can enjoy almost every day without having any second thoughts of driving a trailer queen.
