In 1957, the car was shipped to Cuba where it was eventually purchased by Chrysler’s South American Export Manager, Elwood Parrish.
Parrish and his family left Cuba when Fidel Castro took over the country and they took the Plainsman with them to Puerto Rico. In the early 1960s Parrish was assigned to Chrysler Australia and he brought the Plainsman with him.
During his time here, the car was converted to right hand drive and driven extensively.
Parrish was then moved to Japan and later, Mexico. When Parrish retired the Plainsman returned with him and the family to the United States where the car driven for almost two decades.
In the early 1990s it was acquired by a private collector who returned it to left-hand drive. The Plainsman still exists in private hands and you could have seen it at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in March, 2018.
