"Hi Jesmond, I don't know if I told you when we were corresponding that I am member of the South Canterbury Vintage Car Club. Last Saturday the club held one of its more important rallies of the year called the Mid Island Rally. I went in the Austin A55 and was one of about 68 vehicles that went on the run. It had a good showing of vehicles some old model Ts right through the years, the latest one being a 1964 mini. You name the brand of vehicle and it was there. Mine was the only Austin. We had good weather and I understand it was about 180 miles start to finish. It extended from Timaru through to Geraldine and then into a private forest. That was a bit challenging climbing up to the hilltops on roads only made for logging trucks. I was pleased to get back onto tarseal once we were on our way home. As usual I didn't get anywhere in the rally, thats not my luck. Prior to starting off from the Clubrooms they had a Concours display . About a dozen or perhaps eighteen vehicles went in it. I decided to put the A55 in the display. I don't know when the judging took place and we heard nothing until after the placegetters in the actual rally were announced. There was a table of Cups and Certificates being handed out . All went until only one big cup remained. I thought it won't be me because Ive never won one yet and next thing my name came up. I won the 2014 Concours Cup in my class which was (Post War Vintage) Every comment about the A55 on that day was good and she's going well. So there you have it Jesmond,I don't know if any other vehicles you've had have won Concours but now you know at least one has."Bernie Fairbrass, Timaru, New Zealand
First Plymouth rolled off the line on June 11, 1928 and was apparently considered by Chrysler as a 1929 model.
Generally Model Q Plymouth's are considered 1928 models today and the Model U is considered the 1929. Plymouth was launched by Walter P. Chrysler in 1926 and two years later had its very own model, the 1928 Model Q. The low-priced division would go on to save the Chrysler Corporation during the great depression offering an alternative to upscale Chrysler and Dodge models. By mid-century, Plymouth's forward-looking design language was all the rage and personified the entry-level car for the American middle-class family. However, after many years of low sales and waning interest in the brand, Chrysler Corporation ended Plymouth production in 2001.
Plymouth was intended for the 'low-priced' market segment that was dominated by Ford and Chevrolet. They were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler dealerships, serving as a low-cost alternative to the upscale Chrysler brand. The logo was the rear view of the ship Mayflower which landed at Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
