1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe


Plymouth returned to civilian production in 1946 with the P-series full size sedan that was offered in two distinct trim levels: De Luxe and the top-of-the-line Special De Luxe. In 1949 Plymouth introduced art deco inspired styling touches to match the sumptuous interior appointments that had been present from the start. The inline 6-cylinder engine produced 97 hp, which was one of the most advanced units of the day, featuring cast aluminium pistons and a 7:1 compression ratio. With chair height seats and a wood finished metal dash, the cabin was both comfortable and attractive. These popular models have exceptional aftermarket support and are one of the ways to enjoy early postwar motoring. This attractive coupe presents in very good condition.
