The Plymouth series was introduced in 1928 as an inexpensive car from Chrysler. The name Belvedere was initially used for a new body design, a two-door, pillarless hardtop, of the Cranbrook range. It was introduced to the low-cost American market as a counterpart to the then highly successful Chevrolet Bel Air and Ford Victoria. It was offered with a variety of luxury features and many equipment options. As early as 1954, the Belvedere replaced the Cranbrook with top-of-the-range equipment as an independent model series. All Plymouths had a uniform size until 1960. Until this year a new compact car was introduced, with the A-body platform Valiant. The Belvedere and Satellite models were presented on the basis of the B-body, as an intermediate size. The Dodge Coronet and Charger had the same platform. On the occasion of a facelift in 1967, the Belvedere was given newly arranged headlights and a new radiator grille.
With the beginning of the Musclecar era in the USA, the Belvedere served as a popular basis for extensive vehicle modifications. Large-volume V8 engines with a displacement of over 7 litres, chassis, brake and transmission improvements by the Chrysler parts manufacturer Mopar are still offered for tuning and are frequently used today.
