Vehicle Description

Here’s a straightforward pre-war Plymouth with just enough upgrades to make it more fun to drive. This 1940 Plymouth 2-door Sedan is presented in stock trim. That’s saying a lot because it includes the beautiful “Product of Chrysler Corp U.S.A.” badge in front and the famous sailing ship hood ornament that is simply a work of art. The hubcaps and trim rings maintain the stock appearance. The unmodified body is coated in a deep blue and the interior is tan cloth with the all-original dash and gauges. The stock L-head inline six and three speed manual see duty as the power team just as Plymouth intended. The engine has been treated to a finned aluminum Tattersfield head for a little performance boost along with a Fenton intake and twin carbs for a very nice period vibe. Dual exhausts with new mufflers help with engine breathing and sound. The car rides on contrasting red steel wheels with stock hubcaps and trim rings. Firestone whitewall radials have the classic look with improved ride and handling. 1940 was a vintage year for Plymouth, as their products were among America’s sales leaders. It was also a year of improvements and engineering enhancements; a new longer, lower, wider design; a boost in power, a new transmission that allowed more room inside; and the new “All Weather Air Control” for better passenger comfort. Allpar.com, an authority on all things Mopar, says, “The 1940 Plymouth was a great car. It had engineering far and above anything offered in the low priced field (including Chevrolet and Ford). It also had styling that is still distinctive today. It was truly what it was advertised as: “The Low Priced Beauty with the Luxury Ride.”
