1941 Plymouth 4 Door Sedan
Ask anyone who knows about old cars, and they'll tell you that '40s
Mopars like this 1941 Plymouth are some of the best-driving cars of
the period. The durable six-cylinder engines are a match for Ford's
erstwhile flathead V8, and with better brakes and suspension,
they're just a delight to drive. And few look better than the
Presenting in wonderful red, this 1941 Plymouth 4-door sedan has
become a driver's classic, and mild street rod. A larger 305ci V8
engine topped with a new Holley 650cfm carb, and a TH350 3-speed
automatic, all controlled by the driver who now resides in a fancy
In 1941, Plymouth's advantage was modern styling, and few body
styles are more attractive than this 4-door sedan. The knobby
pointed nose with smoothly integrated headlights and fenders that
are slowly migrating into the body, and a trimming that rises from
the V shaped front grille with dual flanking rounded horizontal
ribbed openings it is decidedly a Plymouth. The finish is red, and
some invasive rust is noted starting to migrate in the bottoms of
the doors near the running boards. Also, throughout surface rust
can be seen under the paint bubbling up through it and there are a
few areas of cracking and crazing. Details like the front grille,
the never-ending trim spear running from stem to stern, have made
this handsome Plymouth appear to be a far more upscale car than its
original sticker price might suggest. A metal visor is in front of
the roof and shading the split windscreen. Running boards are still
here but like the fenders, gradually disappearing. On the rounded
over rear of the car starting from the oval rear glass and
undulating downward framing the trunk and rear bumper panel, and
emulating the rear fenders, we see some painted pinstripe
flourishes, a chromed badge, and vertical rectangular taillights.
15-inch polished mag style wheels are wrapped by raised white
lettering Mastercraft Avenger G/T rubber.
Back in the 40's when motoring was still young, Plymouth made it a
point to shuttle their customers in style. Like new textured
broadcloth in tan and a peppering of brown speckles, low back form
buckets are now in. A rear bench in the same pattern is playing
matchy, matchy. These seats are fronted by a custom dash retaining
its full metal jacket, painted red to match the exterior, and
sporting a metal plate for the instrument cluster. Within this
plate are cream faced VDO gauges that are encased within brass
bezels. In the center, the Art Deco styled speaker covering remains
but has a new clock inserted, and some billet knobs. Below the dash
is a canvas covered, seat matching panel which supports the vents
for4 the vintage air, and a shelf for the AM/FM/CD radio. In front
of the passenger is a metal glove box all within the red painted
metal dash top. More canvas fabric for the headliner and visors,
and in the center of the floor is a small custom fabricated console
with glove box and cupholders. This sits on a brown and tan
speckled carpeted floor.
A 305ci V8 with its industrial patina look in shades of muted gray
polish, and stainless braided hoses, the engine has an overall
gently used and industrial/machine age quality, that I really think
looks fab! This mill is fed by a new Holley 650cfm 4-barrel carb,
and a TH350 3-speed automatic on back with a 10-bolt Camaro rear
An all buttoned up and structurally sound X frame and solid floor
pans and rockers make up the bottom of this rod. With independent
coil springs upfront attached to a Camaro subframe and leaf springs
for the rear and now power disc brakes in front. A Turbo muffler
exhaust system is bolted on and snakes its way from front to
A comfortable interior provides lots of conveniences that work
perfectly when we fire up this Plymouth. Off to the test track,
(yup it's one of the hazards of the job but I must confide fun with
my decoder and muscle car expert and partner in crime yapping as we
go along), where this car performed just wonderfully, all working
conveniences, and a smooth ride and good cruiser.
This Plymouth is a nice looker, has a few issues on the doors and
thresholds and has some spotty areas of bubbling below the paint.
But it retains most of its original charm and has a powerful mill
under the hood. A new interior using the old dash with some new add
ons, and fancy gauges, we are ready to set sail in this Plymouth.
