A thousand miles a, day! The equivalent of 6 years' driving crammed into little more than 8 weeks! Three times this Plymouth crossed the Rockies. Three times it wound its way up and down across the country ... passing through more than 1200 cities and towns.

And when the drivers turned the key to end the marathon, it still looked, ran and rode like new. This is what lasting value really means.
