For sale in our Chicago showroom is this extraordinarily kept 1947 Plymouth Special Deluxe. This car truly is a blast from the past, yet rides smoother than most modern cars! Under the hood is a 218 cubic-inch V6 that is mated to a “3 on the tree”, or 3-speed column shifted manual transmission. While this coupe shows 49,861 original miles, the engine was professionally rebuilt just over 500 miles ago, and with each effortless start the fresh rebuild shows.

This car is said to have all its original steel panels, and approximately 17 years ago it was given the gorgeous Marine Blue paint job which, since, has been incredibly maintained. The paint truly does look like it was just sprayed last week, and the Gray Pinstripe interior is a near perfect complement to the exterior. With the addition of the outside sun visor over the front windshield and the hood ornament light, all occupants in the front seat are sure to have a great view when driving down the road. The addition of a back-up light, fog lights, and a clock, you will not only know where you’re going, but how long you have until you need to be there.

This Plymouth is just what a fully loaded car would have been as it rolled out of the showroom back in ‘47. Options include: AM Radio, Cloth Interior, Hub Caps, and White Walls.

1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe

1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe


Engine: 218 CID I6
Transmission: 3-Speed Manual
Mileage: 37,966 ( actual )

For sale in our Nashville, TN show room is this well built 1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe. The Plymouth Deluxe was a full-sized automobile, produced by Plymouth from 1946-1950. It came in two trim levels, the Deluxe and the top-of-the-line Special Deluxe. As the war in Europe wound down, the U.S. government slowly began allowing the automobile industry to return to the car-making business. It had been four years since any new cars had been built, and those cars still on the road were beginning to show their age. Plymouth's new models for 1946 were once again offered in two series, the P15S Deluxe and P15C Special Deluxe. Deluxe body styles included a four-door sedan, two-door sedan, club coupe, and business coupe. Waiting lists were common at dealerships. Those wanting a new car placed their name, and often a cash deposit, with the dealer. Customers hoped that as new cars became available. The first post-war Plymouth, a P15S Deluxe, came off the line October 22, 1945. Special Deluxes would follow four days later. Bodies for the P15 Plymouths were virtually unchanged from 1942, with only minor trim differences. Engineering magic greets you right from the start. You don’t grope for a starter button or pedal. You don’t pull on a choke. You simply turn the ignition key- and the engine starts. Plymouth literature claimed fifty improvements over the prewar cars; many were of little significance but were changes nonetheless. Mechanically there were few changes. The 217 ci engine stayed the same and was still rated at 95 hp, attained at 3600 rpm instead of 3400 rpm. An economy engine package using a smaller intake manifold and carburetor with 1 inch bore returned to the option list. Aluminum pistons replaced the cast iron ones that had been mandated during the war. Like many vendors, Carter couldn't supply enough of their model D6G 1 carburetors to meet Plymouth's production demands; Stromberg, which normally supplied Ford, provided its model 3-84 carburetor. Replacing the disposable oil filter was a new cleanable canister that contained a replacement cartridge. This is what we call a great survivor, repainted and ready for the road.

When the car was being restored, the owner spared no expense and even had every panel on the car acid dipped. Besides the paint and LED head lights, you’d never know just how custom this classic is. Inside the cabin you’re greeted with a beautiful custom tan vinyl interior helping to make this a comfortable cruiser. The vacuum powered top has been converted to simpler and more reliable electric unit.
