  • Another '57 Broadmoor surfaces

    Well here is still another one.

    No interior pics, but does not look bad on the outside. The color combo is a bit odd, at least for my taste.

    I think Perry James from Milledgeville was looking at this one. He asked my opinion on it,but I think he decided to let it slide and bought a Silver Hawk instead.

      I had a '56 Parkview wagon painted that combo......don't know if it was a true 'carry over' combo between '56 and '57, but definitely very close!

        Unless it has had body work and a repaint, it looks pretty good.

          There was one for sale at Motion Old Cars in South Dakota with the same color combo. They had it listed for a long time but is no longer on their site.

            My first car I bought when I was 17 was 57 four door President in that same color combo. Cost me 85 dollars.

              Weird~ as soon as I saw the pictures I thought of that very same car!!!
              What are the odds that it's the same one?

                Could be. Although, this one seems to have a little less "Patina".

                  Nice looking car, but... Ugh! That BLACK is terrible looking on the nice Turquoise Green. Oh well I guess that is what Paint is for, it cries out for a darker Green to blend with the Turquoise!

                    There was a copper and cream Broadmoor near here when we first moved here in '90. It went to Nevada a few years later. T'was a nice, solid non-running example. I've often wondered what happened to it. Was a Stude father-son duo that owned it.

                      Seems like the copper/cream and red/white were the most popular colors. I would be curious to know how many turq/black ones rolled off the line, yuck.

                          I like it. Seems like there were a lot of 55-56 Plymouths in this combo. Thought there was a popular '56 ad in this color, but didn't find one right away.
