    On June 15, 1957, a new gold and white 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried in a time capsule in downtown Tulsa, OK. The time capsule was part of Golden Jubilee Week: Tulsa's celebration of Oklahoma's semi-centennial. The car is buried under the sidewalk in front of the Tulsa County Courthouse, approximately 100 feet north of the intersection of Sixth Street and Denver Avenue....

    Maybe. Hope so. Might be "as is".

    Still, not a dream car by any stretch of the imagination. I'm pretty sure the winner has to pay taxes on it. Imagine the look on his face when he has to pay gift or unearned income tax on the thing. Nothing but rust and he owes a couple grand on it.

    Oh man, is that gonna suck or what.

    Even in that state, it is still a cool looking car. I love the way the rest of the world was wheezing around in pre war designs, whilst the Yanks were producing those leviathans

    I would have loved any car wheezing or not NC I never even had a ride in a car until the mid 60s and even then my old man only had it for a few months before the money ran out to keep it on the road and it was back to buses or Shanks es pony.
