1933 Plymouth 5-Window Coupe
1933 Plymouth 5 Window Coupe
The Plymouth automobile made its debut in 1923 as a division of Chrysler that would produce lower price point automobiles that Ford and Chevrolet dominated at that time. The first Plymouth automobiles produced were a bit pricier than the Fords or Chevys, but they offered more technological improvements not available from the other two manufacturers. In 2001 the Plymouth division was dissolved.
For consignment, a 5-window version of a Plymouth PD (more luxury) coupe that has been modified as a street rod. Major engine improvements have been made to the V8 which has long since replaced the inline 6-cylinder engine that came with the car from the showroom.
An all steel body that has been uncut and unmodified in any way. Original suicide doors hang straight, the rumble seat opens and closes with all even gaps, and the hood has been removed. A plexiglass roof panel has been fitted and finished, and the firewall has been filled in. The paint is not fresh; however, it presents beautifully, and was most likely sprayed with a 2-stage system. The brilliant red color shows very small imperfections when inspected closely, however there are absolutely no major dents or scratches worth noting, as well as no areas of major body filler being used. Fiberglass fenders and small running boards (nonfunctional) adorn each side. Chrome and brite work presents very nice, with little to no flaws. Overall the exterior could be improved in minute ways, but there really is nothing worth noting. A matching set of big and little custom alloy wheels are attached.
With little left from the original car, beautiful two tone buckets wrapped in tan cloth, with darker inserts which resemble suede leather. Door panels, and the rumble seat, are finished the same way as the buckets, and complimentary tan color carpeting abounds. A center console has been added, and has a storage compartment, and houses the gear selector. Fronting the dash is an aftermarket chromed tilt steering column topped with a dark wood like steering wheel glistening from the lacquer covering it. The dash front is chromed to a mirror finish, and houses Autometer vintage looking gauges. Good condition headliner frames the skylight and wraps around to the rear of the interior roof, “B” pillars and rear window.
A 440ci Chrysler V8 which sports highly polished cross ram long tube intake manifolds, and are topped with 625CFM Edelbrock carburetors which have velocity open stack style element air cleaners. With the engine block painted red, and everything else chromed, there is a good reason as to why this hot rod has no hood. It's the “look”. Attached is a Chrysler Torqueflite transmission of unknown vintage.
This car rides on its original frame (as per consigner) which is straight, rust free, in overall great condition, and is painted black. The underside has numerous parts that have been polished and chromed. A Ford Mustang 2 front suspension and disc brakes makes up the front. The rear has drum brakes, and features a 4-link setup, with a 8.75 Inch rear with 4:10 gearing. Dual polished exhausts snake their way to a chromed tipped side pipe which peeks out in front of the rear wheels.
This beautiful build with all its chromed and red glory, is a true old school hot rod. The engine is a conversation piece to say the least, and all details make this rod very drivable, but it has nice power which was the builders intent, and maybe maker a little noise to awaken the neighbors on a Sunday morning drive!
