RARE PRE WAR CAR, 201 I6, SUICIDE DOOR, GOOD PAINT/BODY, FUN CRUISER, EXC VALUE!
This is a true rare gem. American manufactures were well into wartime planning by the time this 1941 Plymouth Deluxe sedan was built. But more than just one of the last to go before the war, there is just something special about a well cared for and documented classic that holds onto reminders of a bygone era.
It's great to own a car with a story. This 1941 Plymouth is the same type of vehicle (P11) that would be painted olive green and used as military transport only a few months after this one left the assembly line. But as you can see, this one was made for families, and not four-star generals. That means you get a lot more great chrome in the intricate bumpers, headlight surrounds, and the Plymouth sailing hood ornament. But the piece of brightwork you'll love the most is the cool line that starts at the tall grille and runs parallel down the full length of the teardrop body. Even if you don't want to tell the tale of how this one fits into American history, the metallic gray paint, factory suicide doors, and period-correct two-piece hubcaps will attract plenty of attention at the car shows. Then you can point out the "A" in the windshield. This is the WWII gas ration sticker, still adhered where it was placed years ago.
The caramel cloth interior looks so good, it's quite possibly original. Then again, it could also be part of the investment when this car was refreshed in the 80s. Either way, if you look closely you'll see neat details that would be a challenge to duplicate today. Enjoy the pleats running down the center of the seats, and the nice embroidered patterns on the door panels, all of which show off simple art-deco styling that is pure 1940s. The woodgrained garnish moldings and dash have an authentic feel too, and the original gauges are intact with clear markings. Plus, this one still can be nice and comfortable thanks to the working heater and innovative (for the time) fresh air vent system.
The 201 cubic inch inline-six is exactly the motor that should be under the hood of this very period-correct sedan. Torquey and smooth, it moves the tidy sedan quite easily, and it has proven itself to be as reliable as an anvil. Looking highly original with its oil bath air cleaner, this engine has an appearance of honesty that fits with its legacy. The three-speed manual transmission makes sure you get the most out of the flathead motor. Strong brakes and a comfortable suspension are more reasons why Chrysler products were so ahead of their time. This authentic package is finished off with iconic whitewall tires.
This is the classic sedan for car lovers and history buffs. You even get plenty of original documentation that includes the owner's manual, warranty card, title, and service info. Don't let this affordable American story slip through your fingers. Call today!!
