This extremely cool 1941 Plymouth street rod is one of those cars that
takes time to appreciate. At first glance, it appears to be just another
custom painted street rod with some of the usual tricks. Then you look
under the hood and see all that chrome, you glance inside and see the
well-executed interior, and check out the undercarriage and find out how
well done this car really is. The effect is a car that doesn't blow you
away all at once, but takes its time!
The best customs are those that blur the line between what is original and
what has been modified. To see all the changes on this beautiful coupe,
you'd really need to put it side-by-side with an original car, but some of
the big changes are easy to spot. The easy stuff includes shaved door
handles, tail lights, and suicide doors. The paint is about a mile deep,
and is a medium purple pearl that has just enough sparkle in it. The custom
striping really pops, and all of the chrome and stainless has been buffed
and polished to a beautiful shine. The "V" butt windshield is also a nice
touch. The doors fit exactly, the hood shut lines are even, and the deck
lid is flush. Someone obviously took their time with this car.
This Plymouth carries a 360ci V8 motor under the hood. Even with all the
shiny chrome in the engine bay, you can't miss that tall Velocity stack on
top! A polished A/C unit, alternator, intake, overflow tank, coils and
Edelbrock carb are near blinding. The previous owner also includes chrome
pulleys, a Mallory ignition, Exhaust
manifolds and electric fans on both the condenser and radiator.
The chassis is equally exceptional, full of wonderful details and flawless
craftsmanship. The transmission is a 727, and it cruises easily at modern
highway speeds, and there's a beefy Ford 8-inch out back. A GM A-body
suspension has been grafted in the front and rear. The beautiful 2.5"
aluminum Exhaust system with Cherry
Bomb mufflers was done with beautiful welds that will look great forever.
Look closely and you will find the battery lugs underneath the driver seat,
which will make jumping the trunk mounted battery much easier in case you
ever need it. It appears as the gas tank is the original '41. The frame,
floors and fenders are rust free and mud free. The final detail are those
Coker wide whites (14" front and 15" rear).
You're in for a special treat when you climb inside. The pink tweed
interior is something you'll show off every chance you get. The door panels
and headliner have a beautiful matching custom pattern. Creature comforts
include a power driver seat and power windows. The body matching painted
dash includes a set of VDO gauges, which sit in front of the beautiful wood
Grant steering wheel. There is a B& M shifter in front of the fold down
armrest. The spacious trunk is upholstered to match the purple carpets.
Great cars also include lots of paperwork, and this is most definitely a
great car. The package includes a binder full of notes and receipts from
the previous owner.
Take your time looking this one over, and I promise it'll grow on you. You
could spend an afternoon with this car on a lift and still not see every
trick and detail that has been thoughtfully built into it. It is also
expertly engineered, and drives extremely well. You'll simply never get
tired of sitting in that gorgeous interior. This is a stunning custom with
exceptional detailing which will knock everyone out at the next cruise
night. Cool customs simply don't get much better than this. Call now! Tom
Daredevil Driving Stunts in a 1936 Plymouth: "Trial by Torture" 1935 Chrysler Corporation
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/
Toughness of the 1936 Plymouth is demonstrated by showing how components,
structures, and the entire vehicle are "torture tested." Includes several
good shots of deliberately rolling cars, and daredevil driving by "Hell
Drivers' such as Lucky Teter and Jimmy Lynch.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
Plymouth was a marque of automobiles based in the United States, produced
by the Chrysler Corporation and its successor DaimlerChrysler. Production
was discontinued on June 29, 2001 in the United States.
The Plymouth automobile was introduced on July 7, 1928. It was Chrysler
Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was
already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. Plymouths were actually priced
slightly higher than their competition, but offered all standard features
such as internal expanding hydraulic brakes that the competition did not
provide. Plymouths were originally sold exclusively through Chrysler
dealerships. The logo featured a rear view of the ship Mayflower which
landed at Plymouth Rock. However, the Plymouth brand name came from
Plymouth Binder Twine, chosen by Joe Frazer for its popularity among
The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to the Maxwell automobile. When
Walter P. Chrysler took over control of the troubled Maxwell-Chalmers car
company in the early 1920s, he inherited the Maxwell as part of the
package. After he used the company's facilities to help create and launch
the Chrysler car in 1924, he decided to create a lower-priced companion
car. So for 1926 the Maxwell was reworked and re-badged as the low-end
Chrysler "52" model. In 1928, the "52" was once again redesigned to create
the Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q. The "Chrysler" portion of the nameplate was
dropped with the introduction of the Plymouth Model U in 1929.
Great Depression, 1940s and 1950s
While the original purpose of the Plymouth was to serve a lower-end
marketing niche, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the marque
helped significantly in ensuring the survival of the Chrysler Corporation
in a decade when many other car companies failed. Beginning in 1930,
Plymouths were sold by all three Chrysler divisions (Chrysler, DeSoto, and
Dodge). Plymouth sales were a bright spot during this dismal automotive
period, and by 1931 Plymouth rose to the number three spot among all cars.
In 1931 with the Model PA, the company introduced floating power and
boasted, "The economy of a four; the smoothness of a six." In 1933 Chrysler
decided to catch up with Ford and Chevrolet with respect to engine cylinder
count. The 190 cu in version of Chrysler's flathead-6 engine was equipped
with a downdraft carburetor and installed in the new 1933 Plymouth PC,
introduced on 17 November 1932. However, Chrysler had reduced the PC's
wheelbase from 112 in (284.5 cm) to 107 in (271.8 cm), and the car sold
poorly. By April 1933, the Dodge division's Model DP chassis, with a 112 in
(284.5 cm) wheelbase, was put under the PC body with DP front fenders,
hood, and radiator shell. The model designation was advanced to PD and the
car was marketed as the "DeLuxe" 1933 Plymouth. This car sold very well and
is the 1933 model most commonly found in collections. The PC became the
'Standard Six'. It had been the 'Plymouth Six' at introduction, and was
sold through to the end of 1933, but in much lower numbers. It is
consequently in the minority in collectors' hands today. In 1937, Plymouth
(along with the other Chrysler makes) added safety features such as flat
dash boards with recessed controls and the back of the front seat padded
for the rear seat occupants. The PC was shipped overseas to Sweden,
Denmark, and the UK, as well as Australia. In the UK it was sold as a
'Chrysler Kew', Kew Gardens being the location of the Chrysler factory
outside London. The flathead 6 which started with the 1933 Model PC stayed
in the Plymouth until the 1959 models.
In 1939 Plymouth produced 417,528 vehicles, of which 5,967 were two-door
convertible coupes with rumble seats. The 1939 convertible coupe was
prominently featured at Chrysler's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's
Fair, advertised as the first mass-production convertible with a power
folding top. It featured a 201 cu in, 82 hp version of the flathead six
For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American
automobile brands; it together with Chevrolet and Ford were commonly
referred to as the "low-priced three" marques in the American market...
