What kind of car is the Brown Bomber in "The Watsons Go to Birmingham ? 1963"?

Answer

The Brown Bomber in "The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963" is identified as a 1948 Plymouth. It has been equipped with a TrueTone AB-700 Ultra-Glide record player for playing 45s on the way from Flint, Mich., to Birmingham, Ala.

"The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963," by Christopher Paul Curtis, was first published in 1995. The book won several awards, including a Newbery Honor and the Coretta Scott King Award.

The car is ostensibly nicknamed in honor of boxer Joe Louis, who was known as "the Brown Bomber." However, the car's name also foreshadows the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, which occurs at the climax of the book's plot.
