The Plymouth Belvedere had its origins as the 1951–1953 Cranbrook Belvedere. This was introduced in response to the 1950 Chevrolet Bel Air, and the Ford Victoria, the first two-door hardtop in the low-priced American market.
Also called Dodge Regent in Canada, it was a full-sized car in a 2-door hardtop bodystyle. Its construction was related to the De Soto Custom and the Dodge Custom. For an engine it used the 218 cu in (3.6 L) Chrysler Flathead I6.
In 1954 it became its own model line, based on the 114 inch wheelbase full-size car.
