STORED FOR 46 YEARS, REBUILT 201 CI 6, DRIVES FANTASTIC, NEW INTERIOR, TIME WARP
We know why you're looking at this 1936 Plymouth 2-Door Touring Sedan. You want a great classic that reminds you of a bygone era with every inch. But you also want a car that can be comfortably driven like a good classic should. You want it all, and that's exactly why we caught you looking at this one.
The pointed nose with torpedo-like floating headlights makes an attractive first impression, and the squared-off trunk makes it instantly recognizable from behind as a Chrysler product. The body is not a fiberglass reproduction, but instead American steel that has been cherished for over 80 years. The paint is a match to the correct yellow from Chrysler's paint shop, but the kind of gloss and shine tells you there was a far more recent investment in quality modern paint. And to make this yellow really pop on the show field, there are red accents on places like the headlight supports, streaking across the hood, running along the entire profile, and on those bold factory wheels with iconic whitewalls and Plymouth hubcaps. You'll love the stellar overall presentation from the tall waterfall grille, to the re-chromed bumpers, to the full sail hood ornament, to the doors that still shut with authority. And you're not the only one that appreciates all this quality, because info on past awards won by this Plymouth come with the sale.
This is a newer interior, but the upholstery shop took their time to get the right materials and overall presentation correct. That means the restored light brown fabric does a fantastic job of giving this spacious sedan a comfortable and complete feeling without upgrading the Plymouth's everyman theme. You get a great classic three-spoke steering wheel with Plymouth center cap, and the floor-mounted shift is a great place to rest your right hand. You'll love watching the central mounted speedometer do its dance on every roadtrip. Plus, the correct Philco AM radio and heater controls that are on display truly make this a time machine of an interior.
Under the hood, the 201 cubic-inch inline-six has a fantastically honest presentation. 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. And the secret to this Plymouth is that it had its own guardian angel. Not only did the consignor make sure that the restoration work gave this a fantastic presentation inside and out, but also he says the motor was rebuilt around 9,000 miles ago. That kind of care means this classic fires up easily, shifts smoothly, and rides as smooth as a Chrysler/Plymouth should.
There is a great history on this car, right down to the original 1936 registration docs. Time capsule classic like this don't come around too often, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
