This is one of the nicest 1939 Plymouth Deluxe 2 Dr. Convertible Coupes you will ever see. This is a true 95 pt. car inside and out. It has had a complete frame off, nut and bolt restoration several years ago, but it looks like it was done yesterday. There's just a little over 1,200 miles on it since it was restored.
The Plymouth P-8 was introduced in 1939 with a 201 cubic-inch straight six-cylinder engine delivering 82 horsepower. It was the highest priced car in the Plymouth line and the only car in the Chrysler lineup to offer a convertible body style. In 1939 model year, a mere 387 were Convertible Sedans contrasted with 5,976 Convertible Coupes. Moreover Plymouth was the only Chrysler Corporation car line to offer convertibles in 1939. It's rear wheel drive and hyphoid, semi-floating axles. It also has Hotchkiss drive rear axle with Coach Work by Murray.
Among the standard features offered for the first time on the Deluxe Plymouth Series P-8 were: a steering column mounted gear shift lever, 'wet weather ventilation' (employing a cowl ventilator rain trap), two-piece vee'd windshield, flush-mounted headlamps and a 'safety signal' speedometer which evaluated increasing speed by flashing from green to amber to red as speeds progressed. Lucille Ball is pictured in one of these cars Chrysler Corporation loaned for famous people to use while touring the 1939-1940 Worlds Fair.
