Also technically available was the Bendix Electrojector EFI system, but only a handful were sold.> Not to be outdone by Miss Belvedere, the crunchy '57 Plymouth famously unearthed last summer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, here's a look at a similar '58 Plymouth hardtop that got rusty the normal way-through exposure to the elements for five decades.
