Footnotes

  • The introduction of a lower-price line - Plymouth - to compete head-on with Ford and Chevrolet, helped Chrysler Corporation weather the Depression years. Launched in 1928, the four-cylinder Plymouth featured hydraulic braking, full-pressure lubrication, and aluminium pistons, a specification its rivals would not match for a decade. The car was an instant success and by 1933 Plymouth was the US auto industry's third biggest seller, just behind Ford. Together with DeSoto, another Chrysler Corporation marque, six-cylinder Plymouths were assembled in Mortlake Road, Kew from 1932 to 1939 and badged as Chryslers, being given the names of London suburbs such as Croydon, Richmond, Kew, and Wimbledon.

    One of a believed handful surviving, this Chrysler Kew was rescued from a garage where it had been fully dismantled for restoration, which never happened. We are advised that all items were present when the car was purchased in 2005 by the current vendor, who then undertook its restoration, including a professional bare-metal re-spray. The rebuild was completed in 2015 and the engine and transmission are said to be in good working order, though the car has not run for approximately one year. Photographs of the car 'as purchased' and throughout the restoration are available together with a large folder of receipts and a V5 registration document.
