1953 P24-2 Plymouth Cranbrook 4 door sedan in the snow in winter time in
northern California date of B&W photo taken by Jeff Knapp during early 60's
This was our family car purchased by my father Milton E Knapp. My father rigged
this car with a rope between the rear door handle grips that would not allow the
two rear doors to open when the car was moving. I remember this working at least
one time. Either Randy or I opened the rear left door and we were saved by the rope.

below is from

"In 1953 Plymouth offered the Cranbrook four door sedan as part of its line-up.
The engine was a 217 c.i.d., 100hp six cylinder. A three speed manual transmission
was standard with overdrive and semi-automatic transmissions as options".
Under the hood of the 1953 model was the same 117 cubic inch L-head six
found in Plymouths since 1942. However, this years horsepower came at an
exact 100, an increase of three, thanks to a 7.1 to 1 compression ratio (up from 7:1).
Introduced-mid-year, 1954, was a 110-horsepower "Powerflow Six", a 230 cubic inch
unit formerly exclusive to Dodge. The appearance of the new automatic transmissions, plus
the V8 fever spreading in the car-buying public, probably dictated the move to a larger engine.
