Buy It! This 68-mile Neon is the last Plymouth ever built

When you hear the name “Plymouth”, you’re likely transported back to the muscle car wars of the 1960s and ’70s, when big horsepower and wild colours were what put your vehicle on top. Unfortunately, Plymouth died in 2001, leaving behind a legacy of unique vehicles.
The last car off the assembly line in 2001 was a Plymouth Neon LX in silver, with a black leather interior. Exciting stuff. Now, you can own that very vehicle, thanks to a Bring a Trailer auction.
While a budget brand, Plymouth always offered a little more of a premium feel to its vehicles than sibling Dodge, so this Neon LX is fitted with a few special extras, such as a power sunroof, wood-grain trim, an in-dash CD changer, and cruise control.

But don’t think that just because it’s a Neon that this is some clapped-out runabout; this particular example only has 68 miles on the odometer, and is presented in remarkably good shape.
Under the hood is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, but joy of joys, it’s paired with a five-speed manual transmission rather than the normal slushbox automatic.
The vehicle is being auctioned off on Bring a Trailer, where the current bid is a whopping US$12,750. That’s a lot for a Neon, but it could be the lowest price ever paid for the last car from a dying breed.
