For sale is a 1935 Plymouth PJ Business Sedan. This well-preserved car is in solid condition, and has no driveability issues.
The 1935 Plymouth was an entirely new vehicle from the frame up. It wore stylish coachwork that drew its inspiration from the curvaceous and aerodynamic Chrysler Airstream. The chassis featured an X-braced frame, and the bodies were bolted to the frame both vertically and horizontally. This construction method was called Unit Frame & Body Construction. While styling is a matter of taste, few would argue that the latest Plymouth had delightful details, from its pretty Mayflower mascot to its artful, Streamline Moderne hood vents. And its Airflow-inspired body had a longer, lower appearance with sleek curves, but larger window openings that gave it a lithe appearance.
This 43,366 mile (TMU) sedan with “Suicide” rear doors features a beautiful custom paint, and is equipped with an immaculately restored cloth interior, and headliner that is in perfect condition. The instrument panel consists of two five-inch circular dials, well positioned behind the three-spoke steering wheel, using white markings and red-tipped pointers against black backgrounds. The left dial clustered four gauges — water temperature, fuel level, oil pressure, and amperes — around a quarter-dollar-size image of Plymouth’s trademark Mayflower emblem. The right dial houses an odometer and 100-mph speedometer. The dials are separated by three nickel-plated vertical bars, an accent repeated on the glovebox doors. In the center of the dash are controls for the choke, throttle, instrument lighting, and headlamps, arrayed in a square around the ashtray. The car is powered by a 1953 Flat Head Inline six 217ci L Head 6 cylinder 100hp engine, single downdraft carburetor, mated to a 3-speed manual floor shift transmission, hydraulic four wheel drum brakes, and is shod with Coker Classic radial whitewall tires. Additional features include stainless steel hub caps, power windows, a cowl vent, roll out windshield ventilation, and a 12 volt conversion. Prior service history is unknown, though during the seller’s ownership the car has received regular maintenance, tune-ups, and oil changes. Noted imperfections include the gas gauge is not working, the glove box is missing the box/liner, the horn button is missing, and there is a small crack in the engine block above the upper core plugs on the driver side, which looks like a prior owner attempted to repair.
This well taken care of car is in the Seattle area and offers someone the opportunity to own a classic 1930’s collector car which Plymouth stated in their advertising was “Fun, Action, and Thrills.” The car has a clean Title, and the asking price is $12,900.
