1939 Plymouth P8 Deluxe Line

The Plymouth Company received its name because it described perfectly 'the endurance and strength, the rugged honesty, the enterprise, that determination of achievement and freedom from old limitations of that Pilgrim band who were the first American colonists.' according to Walter P. Chrysler.

Introduced in the 1939 model year, the Deluxe P8 model was a four-door sedan than came with an 82 horsepower L-head six engine. A total of 417,528 units were produced during its lifetime. Outselling the entry-level Road King P7 model, nearly half of the Deluxe P8 models produced were 4-door sedan models.

A total of 387 4-door convertibles were produced, while 5,976 convertibles copes were constructed, while 1,850 limousines with a 20' stretch, while a total of 1,777 woody wagons were produced. The lowest priced model was the stripped Road King model, which came off the product line at only $645.

1939 Plymouth advertisements applauded the Chrysler P8 as a smooth riding, extra size and room vehicle with ‘sumptuous luxury'. The 1939 DeLuxe Plymouth featured additional inches of seat room, head room and leg room.

Lucille Ball toured the 1939 N.Y. World's Fair in a Plymouth four-door convertible.
