1939 Plymouth Deluxe
Due to the obvious connection, the Plymouth company made use of the
Mayflower logo. This took on several iterations throughout it's
lifespan, first appearing on the company logo, then eventually
making its way to the hood ornament. This took on the styles of
each era, with an Art Deco version, a 40s version with 4 full sails
and a locomotive like hunk of chrome, a lighter flamboyant
windswept take, a jet age version with the stylized sails within a
jet like winged shape, a very sleek version nearly modern art
looking more like a barracuda, and just before its demise in 2001,
a graphic printed version of the square rigged cargo ship.
For consignment a 1939 Plymouth Deluxe which is in partial
restoration state. This car will not run due to a timing chain
jumping, has primer exterior, and is a 4-door version of the P7
body style. The hood ornament and trim moldings are missing, the
interior has original door panels and late model seats and the
original dash has been modernized. A project car awaiting your
creative interpretation, whether it be the original interpretation
or a snazzy rodder, it is calling out to you!
Steel panels in various states are on this car. Some panels have
invasive rust, others dents, and even some attempted body putty
repairs are noted throughout. Fancy headlight bezels are now on, a
ribbed bumper, wood running boards and rounded fenders are
attached. 4 doors need some alignment and TLC, and on the humpback
trunk rear, taillights are missing, another ribbed bumper is on,
and dual large chrome tipped tailpipes are peeking out from the
bottom. Glass is all intact, and wheel covers missing their badges
are on all 4 corners.
A swing of the doors and we see blue mohair fabric with original
cranks and levers and bakelite bezels and knobs. Late model buckets
in fair condition have half coverings on them and now replace the
original seats upfront. Bringing up the rear is an armrest bench
which is also in blue mohair and is showing wear and tear. Upfront
the dash has been modified with simple panels in aluminum, one for
the speedo, and the other below the dash for a lineup of VDO white
faced gauges. A bit of the original dash remains, and the trimmings
show wear and dimpling. There is no headliner, just bare metal, and
floors have some carpet and rubber mats.
As noted this engine has a timing chain issue so it does not run.
It is not original and is now a 283ci V8 with several years of dust
accumulation. On back is a 2-speed automatic, and way back an 8.75
Mopar rear axle.
It appears at one point the body was removed from the frame as we
note more primer for the floorpans toe kicks and rockers
underneath. The X frame is rust free and remains structurally
sound. Corvette disc brakes are now on the front and are power
brakes to boot. Rack and pinion steering is here as well. Stock
leaf springs are on the back along with power drum brakes.
Much like a team sport, we are now handing the ball off to you to
decide what to do with it. You'll need to do some bodywork, engine
work, and spiff up the interior, but that is pretty much what the
game is all about, searching, wrenching and sanding is a labor of
love to bring back this flagship piece of history.
