Thought this was pretty interesting ... too bad the new 1957 Plymouth Belvedere put into the underground time capsule didn't come out looking better. frown

Could have been a lot worse. Glad it wasn't a 57 chevy!

To bad. Who's bright idea was that? Let's take some steel and put it in the moist ground for 50 years ...

My dad owns a '57 Plymouth Belvedere, 4 door. It's a puke green with white, and a puke green interior. It just sits under the carport, doing nothing.
I wonder how much it cost to restore that '57 in the video?

Thanks, ZeeOSix, for posting this

I remember hearing about it back then, knew it was destroyed, but didn't hear what finally became of it.

Something I remember hearing that was not mentioned in the video is that a nearby water main broke in the 80's, they think that's where the water came from.

OOPS, sorry! It's a 1957 DODGE CUSTOM ROYAL. And, he has moved it from under the carport.

If Tulsa would have left that Belvedere under someone's carport it would have been better than parking it in an underground aquifer.
