VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

 VEHICLE HISTORY:   According to the Serial Number this car was built in the Detroit , Michigan plant.  The current owner purchased this 1935 Plymouth from a local contractor in 1978.  Twenty years later he finally started a thorough and comprehensive restoration.  It was a five year, body-off-frame restoration.  The car was completely disassembled and everything was either repaired, rebuilt, restored, or replaced.

Brakes – Completely rebuilt including drums, shoes, lines, hoses, wheel cylinders (White Post)

Soft Top – New padding, cover, wood repaired

Running Boards – Sent to Canada for proper installation of new rubber mats

Wiring – Complete new 1935 Plymouth wiring harness

Shocks – Rebuilt by Apple Hydraulics

Tires – Five new Firestone WWW tires and tubes

Upholstery – New seat covers, door, kick, & quarter panels, headliner, visor, carpeting

Seals – All new rubbers, welts, lacings, weather-strip, window channels

Body Panels – Removed and stripped to bare metal

 The owner does not have time to enjoy this nicely restored 1935 Plymouth .  We recently serviced it so it is ready for the new owner to drive and enjoy:

  • Oil/Filter Change
  • New Fuel Tank Sender
  • Radiator Flush/Refresh
  • Transmission Fluid Service
  • New Temperature Gauge

 MARQUE HISTORY:  New from the frame up, the 1935 Plymouths offered major design and engineering advances over the 1934 models – and Ford and Chevrolet.  Plymouth still had the only four-wheel hydraulic brakes among its major competitors.  For 1935 the Plymouth had a stronger chassis with a revised suspension that improved the ride and handling, plus safer, more streamlined bodies without old-fashioned wooden substructures.  With all this, Plymouth sales topped 350,000 units for 1935.  Of the 16 body styles available there were only 29,942 of the PJ Business Six 2-Door Sedans sold, with a base price of $535.

VEHICLE CONDITION:  

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale.  Most vehicles are driven by me and our mechanic to assist with the inspection.  Although driven by us, it is no indication that the vehicle is ready for a long distance trip.  We typically will put less than 30 miles on a vehicle during the inspection process.  This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition.  Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability.  But, we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle, so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged.  The only guarantee with an old vehicle is that something will fail given enough time.
