1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible
217 cid L-head in-line six-cylinder engine rated at 97 horsepower, three-speed manual transmission, four-wheel hydraulic drums brakes; wheelbase: 118"
Plymouth had been a winning brand of automobile since it was first introduced in 1928. Even though it was considered one of the "low-priced three," Chrysler Corporation had not left this best-selling economy brand go without the updates that the other MOPAR cars received for the mid-year 1949 re-style, in fact many consider the clean lines of the Special Deluxe to be the most attractive in the entire line-up.
While open cars had ushered in the automotive industry, after WWII, closed cars ruled. If you were daring enough to own a convertible, it was a sure sign of being quite sporty and usually the most popular guy or gal in your social group. The example we are offering appears to be in fairly original condition, with a possible older repaint. It is equipped with a factory radio and heater-defroster. One custom touch is the addition of a clear Lucite gearshift knob, and of course period after-market turn-signal indicators. With a little bit of TLC, the sailing ship hood ornament of this bright red Plymouth will lead a new owner on many great motoring adventures.
