The 4-door sedan was the most popular Belvedere of the five models available for the 1959 model year, with Plymouth selling 49,124 of them.
The Plymouth line up saw a bit of a reshuffle for the 1959 model year. The Belvedere was now the middle series making way for the Fury which now sat at the top-of-the-line.
This particular Belvedere in Powder Blue (code BB) has done just under 29,000 miles in its life. Bought new by a lady in Fayetteville, Tennessee, she traded in her 1957 Chrysler to get it.
It's interesting that she had traded in a two year old car but then never bought another new car, keeping this one until her death in the 1990s.
The push-buttons on the left control the PowerFlite transmisison with the ones on the right controlling the heating, ventilation and defrosting. It's a simple looking dash but brought to life with plenty of brightwork.
The interior has been redone but using New Old Stock (NOS) materials.
Under the hood is a 318 cubic inch, 230 horsepower, V8 that's paired with a PowerFlite automatic transmission. As you'd expect from a Plymouth of this era, it has a push-button transmission selector.
A Belvedere 4-door Sedan would have cost you $2,440 for one equipped with the base 230 cubic inch six cylinder engine. The 318 V8 that is in this car would have cost an additional $118 with the PowerFlite costing $227.
The original owner didn't go to town with options (no power steering or power brakes) but did opt for a heater, aluminum Sportone inserts and full wheel covers. We know with the engine and transmission options above that her total bill was $3,004.51.
