For Sale: 1947 Plymouth Special in Alsip, Illinois

Vehicle Description

As World War II Wound Down, The U S Automakers Slowly Began Allowing The Industry To Return To The Business Of Manufacturing Cars, As It Had Been Four Years Since Any Had Been Built.

Chrysler Was Slower Getting Back Into The Automotive Market As They Were The Largest Tank Builders During The War. This Caused Their Start-Up For Automobiles To Be A Bit Slower Post War. The American Public Was Eager To Start Buying Cars!!

Despite Speculation As To What The New Cars Would Look Like, Model Years 1946 Through 1949 Did Not, At First Glance, Appear Much Different Than The 1942s.

In Profile, The Cars Looked Much The Same, With Few Changes. The Grille Followed The Same Design Motif, Only Now The Bars Were No Longer Divided Across The Front Of The Car; They Fell In An Alternating Wide And Narrow Pattern. The Oblong Parking Lamps Were Moved To A Spot Directly Below The Headlights And Were Incorporated Into The Ends Of The Third Wide Bar. A New Ship Emblem, Attached To The Lower End Of The Hood Had The Word "Plymouth" Mounted In Stainless Block Letters Between This Emblem And The Top Grille Bar. The Front Bumper Now Wrapped Around The Fender To The Wheel Opening. Adding To The Clean Looks Of The Car Was The Omission Of The "Air Scoop" Under The Front Bumper.

A New Pattern On Wood Graining Was Used On The Dash And Was Lighter In Color Than Cars Pre-War. The Safety Signal Speedometer Colors were More Intense And Both The Speedometer And Gauges Used An Almost Black Background. The Top Molding Of The Dash Was Smooth, Rather Than Ribbed, And Curved Around The Ends To Meet The Lower Molding, Which Was Still Ribbed.

A Very Nice Driver With Good Solid Body Panels, Very Good Paint And Chrome, Newer Interior, Underside Will Need Attention.
