Vehicle Description

1936 Plymouth 2-Door Sedan

The Plymouth automobile made its debut in 1923 as a division of Chrysler that would produce lower price point automobiles that Ford and Chevrolet dominated at that time. The first Plymouth automobiles produced were a bit pricier than the Fords or Chevys, but they offered more technological improvements not available from the other two manufacturers. In 2001 the Plymouth division was dissolved.

For consignment, a 2-door sedan version of a Plymouth P1 or P2, one cannot tell whether this was a standard or deluxe model now that has been modified as a street rod, but either way it's looking perfectly the part today! Major engine improvements have been made to the Hemi V8 which has long since replaced the inline 6-cylinder engine that came with the car from the showroom as well as the additionof 4 wheel power disc brakes and a 5-speed manual transmission.

Exterior
An all steel body that has been uncut and unmodified in any way. The original doors hang straight with good gaps and the hood side panels have been retained tocast an aura of allure and mystery about what lurks within. A hint as such is seen poking out of the custom hood cowl and fender area, but more on that later. A full tan canvas roof has been well fitted as technology at the time could not produce a large enough viable sheet of steel and adds some class to this rod build. The paint is an older application however, it presents beautifully, and was most likely sprayed with a 2-stage system. The brilliant Amber Pearl, (burnt orange), color shows very small imperfections when inspected closely, however there are absolutely no major dents or scratches worth noting, as well as no areas of major body filler being used. Steel fenders and small black rubber coated running boards adorn each side. All the chrome and brite work present very nice, with little to no flaws. Overall the exterior could be improved in minute ways, but there really is nothing worth noting. 15" American Racing Outlaw 1 wheels are wrapped in Firehawk Indy 500 raised white letter radials.

Interior
Reusing very fewparts from the original car, beautiful2 tone bucket seats are wrapped in off white and beige cloth, with off white diamond inserts dressing things up a bit and a matching 2+2 bench seat sprawls between the rear doors. The door panels are finished in smooth vinyl with a central raised embossing around the swooping arm rest and chrome cranks, and complimentary beige color abounds. A white ball topped Hurst shifter has been added and is within the driver's reach. Fronting the dash is an aftermarket polished tilt steering column topped with a leather wrapped Billet Specialties steering wheel. The dash front shows out of the ordinary with a camouflage wrap providing the backdrop for the white face VDO gauges, warning and indicator lights, the AM/FM/Cassette stereo and controller for the Vintage Air/Heat system. A good condition off white headliner frames the roof and beige vinyl wraps around to the rear of the interior roof, "B" pillars and rear window and clean tan carpeting rounds out our interior tour.

Drivetrain
A dare to be different Chrysler 392ciHemi V8 now resides under the hood. This mill and heads are finished in yellow but very hard to see with all the chrome and polished add-ons decorating the engine. A pair of Holley 4bbl carburetors sits atop a polished high rise tunnel ram type aluminum intake manifold and is topped by chrome air cleaner assemblies. With polished aluminum valve covers, wire looms, chrome alternator and polished AC components, there is no good reason to keep this mill covered, other than to surprise the competition. Attached is a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission bolted to the back of the mill and sends power back to a Ford 9" rear axle.

Undercarriage
This car rides on its original frame, which is straight, rust-free, in overall great condition, and is painted black. This frame provides an excellent backdrop for the clean rust-free painted floor pans. A Mustang II suspension and disc brakes makes up the front. The rear has more disc brakes and a leaf spring arrangement. Dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers snake their way to chromed tipped tail pipes after curving around the like new fuel tank.

Drive-Ability
It fired right up and has an amazing amount of power with that Hemi V8 under the hood. It handled the test track with ease, good acceleration, straight quick stopping and good handling, although on tight S turns at speed the front felt a bit squirrelly. All functions were working with the exception of the horn and speedometer.

This beautiful build with all its chromed and burnt orange glory, is a true old school hot rod. Having a Mopar engine in a Plymouth is a conversation piece to say the least, and all details make this rod very drivable, but it has nice power, which was the builder's intent, and maybe make a little noise to awaken the neighbors on a Sunday morning drive!
