Never seen one like that! It looks to be a Springfield chassis.

The only "Plymouth" I am familiar with in reference to any tractors would be the Plymouth/Silver King tractors mfg'd in Plymouth, OH. They sold the Plymouth name to Chrysler back in the 1930's. They were out of the tractors business by the 1960's IIRC, so it seems kind of unlikely that they would have used the "Plymouth" name on an LGT.

Yes, it sure is looking like a private label Gilson.
