A passion for cars, and particularly the 1954 Plymouth Belvedere, near Orlando

Retired senior vice president for parts and service at DaimlerChrysler, Darrell Davis has a great story, and an awesome recreation of a 1954 Plymouth dealership showroom.

In part of his 9,000-square-foot garage near Orlando, Darrell re-created a fully equipped Plymouth dealership showroom. On display are all four body styles from the ’54 Belvedere line, and the sales brochures, display racks, banners, signs, order books and even the sheets of paint samples and upholstery swatches. All of it is meticulously preserved and presented.
