Cars: Barrett-Jackson Salon Collection — 1954 Plymouth Belmont

Everyone’s familiar with the concept designed by Chrysler and built by Ghia of Italy in the early 1950s. But not everyone knows that several Chrysler concepts were built much closer to home. One of them is the 1954 Plymouth Belmont, a fiberglass-bodied, V8-powered, two-seat roadster included in the Salon Collection at this 43rd annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car .

The Plymouth Belmont was produced in Detroit, not Italy, and not only is it part of automotive history, but the Belmont was also something of a movie star, with roles in three Hollywood films.

Among the scheduled to roll across the block at the Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas is a red-white-and-blue bedecked 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 Shelby “Super Snake.” The car comes with some mileage on its odometer as well as the signatures of hundreds of people who support its mission — and also with the hopes of the dozens more who will benefit from that mission — the Wounded Warriors Family Support charity.
