1931 Plymouth Model PA news, pictures, specifications, and information
By 1931 Plymouth had taken over third place in new car sales - a remarkable achievement. Despite the looming Great Depression, Walter Chrysler re-tooled the Plymouth line and produced the new Type PA with 'Floating Power' (a unique system of mounting the engine.)
Despite having four cylinders to Chevrolet's six and the soon-to-be Ford V-8, Plymouth sales did well. It offered, as Chrysler claimed, 'The Smoothness of a Six with the Economy of a Four.' This example, a convertible coupe, sold for $645 in 1931.
