The First Plymouth engine photo is of a 1922 Maxwell four cylinder engine. This engine, much modified, became the engine for the 50-series Chryslers and the 1928 Plymouth. It was built through 1932.

This engine is included here because it shows the legacy engine color inherited by Chrysler, and which, it appears, Chrysler continued for some time on brands other than Dodge.

This photo is from Willem Weertman's research in the Chrysler archives, source #2 in the bibliography. Anyone with an interest in Chrysler engines is urged to buy Weertman's book. it is pricey, but contains a wealth of information not found anywhere else.

The second Plymouth engine photo is of the 1928 Plymouth series Q in the Chrysler Historic Collection. Notice the "silver Dome" cylinder head.

The third Plymouth photo is of a 1932 Plymouth series PB chassis. Notice that this too has a "Silver Dome" engine.

The last Plymouth engine photo I could find was this one of a 1933 Plymouth series PC under-hood. In 1933 both Plymouth and Dodge began using the "Short Block" six. The Plymouth versions were built at the Plymouth Lynch Road assembly plant, and the Dodge versions were built at the Dodge Hamtramck plant a few blocks away. There are some small casting differences between the engines, but most parts are interchangeable.

Note that this also has a "Silver Dome" head.
