The 1951 Plymouths had a new front clip, with a more modern, fast-looking sloping hood and grille. The hood sloped, and the sailing ship hood ornament was pushed back onto the top of the hood, with “speed waves” added. The Plymouth shield was restyled for the year, too. Name badges were on the front fenders. Carried forward were two elements that competitors had dropped: windshields made of two flat panes of glass and bolt-on rear fenders.
