Description:

I have a friend who is 93 years old and has owned every great car that ever existed, from Bugatti''s to Bentley''s. I asked him once what he thought the best all-around old car might be and he thought for a moment, then said, "I loved my Alfa-Romeo 6C 2800 roadster... but you know, ''40s Plymouths are awfully good, too!" He wasn''t joking, because cars like this 1940 Plymouth sedan are some of the best-driving old cars you can own. The fact that they''re handsome and reliable is simply icing on the cake. This Plymouth needs some TLC, we''re not hiding that fact. However, the bottom line is that this is a very affordable, fun, usable car for about what you''d pay for a 5-year-old Hyundai, and it makes for a great way to get started in the hobby, for not a lot of cash. It was painted a correct shade of Whistler Gray about 30 years ago, and while some guys insist on perfect fresh paint, I like the patina that this one shows, because the older paints have a more authentic-looking shine. It''s actually quite presentable as-is, and an afternoon of heavy detailing would probably work wonders. On the other hand, it isn''t rusted or banged up, the doors fit well, and all the trim is in place, so it''s ready to use without a second thought. Even the chrome is quite decent and presentable, with most of the brightwork being stainless, so it''ll shine up quite well without the expense of a chrome shop. Nice! The gray cloth interior is quite possibly original, and with the mindset that it''s now 73 years old, it''s very impressive. Like the rest of the car, it''s usable as-is, and if you look closely you''ll see neat details that would be a challenge to duplicate today. Dig the pleats running down the center of the seats and the lovely embroidered patterns on the door panels, all of which show off simple art-deco styling that''s pure 1940s. The woodgrained garnish moldings and dash have an authentic feel, too, and the original gauges are intact with clear markings. It includes an optional AM radio, clock, and heater, which meant you were living large in 1940, and the big steering wheel makes cruising an effortless affair. A 201 cubic inch inline-six shouldn''t be under-estimated, and it''s why my friend is so fond of these cars. Torquey and smooth, it moves the tidy sedan quite easily, every bit a match for Ford''s V8, and it has proven itself to be as reliable as an anvil. Looking highly original with silver engine paint and an oil bath air cleaner, this engine will probably run forever given only modest maintenance. A 3-speed manual transmission was the only choice, and it cruises pretty easily at 55 MPH and zips through traffic with ease. Strong brakes and a comfortable suspension are more reasons why Chrysler products were so ahead of their time, and it wears vintage whitewalls on the original wheels. If you''re on the outside looking in, make this the year that you buy an old car and get into the game. For a very modest investment, you could have a wonderful, classic Plymouth. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
