Station Wagon
Plymouth built 5,594 4-door Station Wagons in 1941 from a total of 354,139 P12s. Special Deluxe for that year meant two-tone paint - the wooden body Westchester wagon could be bought in one solid shade or with the flat panels a darker shade for striking contrast. The P12 wheelbase was 137.5-inch and with it was a 201.3 cubic-inch 'valve-in-block' 6-cylinder with 87 horsepower or with the optional aluminum head, 92 horsepower. In 1941 Plymouth celebrated its fourth millionth car with Mickey Rooney painting the symbolic number on a Convertible at the Los Angeles plant.

Sold for $31,900 at 2007 Monterey Sports and Classic Car Auction.
This 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $60,000-$80,000 and offered without reserve.

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.

Plymouth built its four-millionth car in 1941. Model year sales were high as people purchased new vehicles in anticipation of America's likely entry into World War II. This convertible coupe has been modified for increased performance. Twin carburetors and a dual exhaust system were installed.
