Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

57 Plymouth Belvedere. “George”, not Christine.

50s pymouth man in hat

Stephen King wrote a book about a car much like what you see here. In the movie “Christine”, which was based on King’s book, the car was a 1957 Plymouth Fury (2-door). This is the sedan brother to the Fury. 1957 Plymouth Belvedere. The back of the photo is written simply “George”. George got mud on his tire. Bad George.

Personal side note: My grandfather Robert Bingman worked on the design team for all 1957 Chrysler products which included Dodge, Chrysler, Imperial, DeSoto, and of course Plymouth. The team of designers that year won an Industrial Designers award for their accomplishments. Very prestigious award that he was most proud of.
