The Plymouth Concord, was a full-size car, produced by the Plymouth division of Chrysler, between 1951 and 1952. It was Plymouth's least expensive model in its lineup. It replaced the Deluxe, and was replaced by the Savoy, but only from 1954 onwards.

The Concord Series was available in a simple Deluxe trim level. For the station wagon an additional Special Savoy top-of-the-line trim level was available.

The name[edit]

Plymouth, Massachusetts was one of the first European settlements in North America and is a major city in the state. Two of Plymouth's model lines in the 1950s were named after towns in Massachusetts: Cambridge and Concord. The name "Concord", was later used by American Motors (AMC) for its line of compact cars (see: 1978-83 AMC Concord). The name was resurrected by Chrysler after it bought out AMC on its full-size cars (see: 1993-2004 Chrysler Concorde), though it was spelled "Concorde".
