1941 Plymouth P12 Special DeLuxe news, pictures, specifications, and information
Chassis Num: 11347960
|Sold for $31,900 at 2007 RM Auctions.|
The car is powered by a six-cylinder engine that displaces 201 cubic-inches and produces 87 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual sliding gearbox, four-wheel drum brakes, and an independent front suspension and leaf springs rear setup.
The Special Deluxe was Plymouths premier product in 1941 and enjoyed great successes thanks in-part to the solid reputation of its marque. Most of the Special Deluxe models were given bumper end 'wingtips' and center Superguards, which helped alleviate the possibility of the guard from interfering with the opening and closing of the deck lid.
This example has traveled just 72,231 miles since new. It has remained in the same ownership for the last 44 years. Recently, it was treated to a frame-up restoration with the exterior being finished in Butternut Cream paint. This car features steel disc wheels on all four corners though the side skirts conceal the rears. The interior is burgundy leather and the convertible top is vacuum-operated.
since this vehicle was offered without reserve, the high bid would become the new owner. Bidding fell short of the estimated value, by almost half, with the selling price being $31,900 including buyer's premium. The lot was sold.
