1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe -A Solid First-Year Plymouth Convertible. -Once Refurbished but Never Fully Restored. -The deck lid sits a bit proud of the bodywork on the left but seals and latches properly. -There is no apparent damage here, likely it is just slightly bent due to people forcing it down over the decades as the locking hinge is on this side. -The lights and add-on turnsignals work as they should, the blue dot third brake light is a nice addition within the trunk handle! -The car drives better than most of these do with modern whitewall radial tires all around. -The dashboard is also quite striking with nice paint and chrome. -Mileage on the odometer is presently 08654, I m not sure whether it just rolled over once or was zeroed out when the car was refurbished. -The interior was reupholstered a long time ago during its refurbishment. -The materials are not correct to period but it is a comfortable car to drive nonetheless. -The hydro-electric power convertible top and windows go down nicely and flush with the bodywork. -This is just a nice car to go cruising in and keeps up with modern traffic just fine. -A thorough cleaning and detailing wouldn’t hurt, but the little 217.8 cubic inch, 95hp Spitfire Six runs very well as most of them do, -Chrysler used this engine from the 1920s until 1970 in marine and agricultural applications (including portable air raid sirens!). -A new battery was installed recently. -The car was converted to 12V and negative ground with a Delcotron alternator at some point, which is nice as the headlights actually work! -The car really needs nothing to be used regularly, which is a nice trait for an attractive old car to have!
