1940 Plymouth PT105 Pickup - Spitfire Flathead Inline 6 - 3 Speed
Manual Transmission - 1978 Miles Since Built - Restored From 1996
to 2004 - Extensive Paperwork and Documentation Of Restoration -
Converted To 12 Volt System Developed as an alternative to the
trucks being built by Chrysler, the Plymouth PT105 Pickup was
created purely because every Plymouth dealer in the U.S. and Canada
paired each model from the Plymouth line up with another product
from Chrysler. Plymouth built their new truck on a chassis from
Dodge and labelled it the PT which stood for Plymouth Truck. For
the first production year they developed four models on the
platform, including the Express (the pickup), a Cab-and-Chassis, a
Commercial Sedan, and a Wood Body Station Wagon �€" although the
last body style only lasted one year. For the 1940 model year,
Plymouth introduced sealed beam headlamps, the upper grille
featured the addition of three horizontal chrome strips and the
power of the inline 6-cylinder engine was increased from 70hp to
79hp. Presented here is a completely restored 1940 Plymouth PT105
that has only clocked 1,978 miles since it's completion in 2004.
Shown in a red over black paint scheme, this truck is quite the eye
catcher. With just the right amount of chrome accents, the exterior
of this truck has been both restored and upkept beautifully.
Complete with a newly finished wood bed and white wall tires, the
restoration has taken this truck back to its original glory.
Powered by a Spitfire Flathead inline 6-cylinder with 3-speed
manual transmission and conversion to a 12-volt system, this truck
is a treat to drive. The engine compartment and chassis components
were not over-restored, but do show nicely. While there are not
many comforts inside the cab, the interior has been restored and
finished nicely from top to bottom. The bench seat is covered
expertly and has matching door panels. The dash sports original
gauges for engine temp, oil pressure, fuel, amperage and finally a
speedometer. Although not as commonly known as the Detroit brands
of the time, these Plymouth trucks are great looking classics and
would make the perfect addition to any collection. The restoration
on this specific truck has been completed by experts, and includes
all the documentation. We encourage any collector to seriously
consider this truck for their next purchase. Please call if
interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for
