Introduced in July 1928, the Plymouth was Chrysler's first attempt at a low-cost automobile to compete with the likes of Ford and Chevrolet. In the 1930s, it was credited with helping the Chrysler corporation to survive the depression. The styling and specification of the late 1930s models changed only gradually until the introduction in the 1950s of Chrysler's 'Forward Look' styling that gave their products a much more contemporary feel

The Plymouth marque dropped out of use after 2000.
