DescriptionThis beautifully designed concept car was designed by Chrysler Corporation, under the direction of Virgil Exner, for the 1954 Chicago Auto Show and New York Autorama Show. In most recent years it was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. It is powered by a 241/150hp, 3.9 Liter V8 engine with a Hy-drive transmission and rides on a 114" wheelbase. The body is reinforced fiberglass, the work of Briggs Manufacturing. Its styling is aerodynamic and indicative of Exner's future "Forward Look" theme. The design is clean with the convertible top carefully stowed away in a hidden compartment located behind the seats. A Chrysler Corporation dream or concept car for the Plymouth Division, the Belmont was highly publicized and well received by the public at the various major automobile shows where it was displayed. Unfortunately, the car was never put into production, this car being the only one built.
