1947 Plymouth Special Deluxe $24,995

Lithia Springs, GA Red · 350 V8 · 29,203 miles
The post-war Plymouths had a smooth, slick look that lends itself quite well to customizing, and this 1947 Plymouth Special Deluxe 2-door sedan offers modern performance from a great-running small block V8 plus a unique look thats a lot more interesting than the usual Fords and Chevys you always see at shows. The bright red paint is sure to get you noticed, and once everyone spots this car, theyll be digging the cool black graphics that were expertly laid down on top. Neatly framing the cool Plymouths curves, it gives the car a more updated vibe thatll look good for years to come. A lot of the trim was shaved, but quite a bit remains, so it retains its Plymouth identity and has great functionality, starting with real door handles instead of problematic door solenoids. The finish is nicely done and while its showing its age a bit, a professional buff would really wake it back up and give you a high-quality look for not a lot of cash. The original grille is there in spirit, with stainless stripes highlighting the pointed nose, and without bumpers, it takes on a very sleek, clean look. In back there are traditional pinstripes, a frenched license plate frame, and a pair of 39 Ford teardrop taillights, which are always the right choice on a vintage rod of any kind. The two-tone black and red theme continues inside, where the original seats have been covered in fresh seat covers that work well with the exterior paint. The upholstery is in great shape showing only minor wear and the pleated door panels are a great hot rod look thats been popular for decades. The interesting woodgrained window surrounds and dashboard are similar to what many automakers used in the 40s, and the gauges appear to be original and fully functional, joined by a modern temperature gauge under the dash. Theres an AM/FM/CD stereo neatly installed under the dash so the original chrome-laden center stack can still be the star of the show inside. The back seat offers plenty of stretch-out room for passengers, making this a very practical rod that still looks great. Theres also a fairly sizeable trunk under that fastback profile, which is fully upholstered and includes a custom enclosure for the battery. For motivation, this Mopar turns to good old Chevy power, in this case a 350 cubic inch V8. Its a neat fit in the Plymouths engine bay and with things like a 4-barrel carburetor, dual exhaust, and a high-rise intake manifold, its a very strong runner. A few chrome pieces dress things up a bit and the bright red paint extends under the hood onto things like the power brake booster. This car also offers power steering so its easy to drive and the dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers sounds aggressive without getting tiresome on the highway. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spins what might be the cars original rear end, so its plenty peppy around town. The underside isnt detailed for show, but you already know this car was built to drive, not to ride around in a trailer. It has just the right stance and sits on a set of polished wheels and 235/60/15 Goodyear radials all around. Dare to be a little different with this clean little Plymouth. Great looks, lots of performance, and a few unique touches will make it stand out anywhere. Call today!
