1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Club Coupe
Have you been searching for a classic car that will separate you from the countless others out there? Are you sick & tired of seeing the same old Fords & Chevys everywhere that you look? Well, I have the perfect classic car for you!
‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is very happy to offer you this absolutely gorgeous 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Club Coupe! How many of these beauties have you seem around lately? This vintage Plymouth is an absolute show-stopper folks! Plymouth had a banner year in 1949, increasing their sales nearly 50% over the previous year, and found themselves w/ a firm hold on third place in the overall sales race, right behind Chevy and Ford. Why was the '49 Plymouth such a big hit? A fresh & beautiful new design on the eve of a bright new decade, along with plenty of engineering advances that they touted in all the sales ads.
Being from California for the majority of its life, this gorgeous example made its way here to Southern Utah a couple of years ago and has been restored to its factory original glory. Countless man-hours were spent making sure that all of the sheet metal is super-straight all the way around, and Dynamat sound-deadening materials were added to the entire body, including the roof and the trunk. It was then finished in its factory correct Bolivia Green paint, which looks outstanding on this car, and the paint has been polished to a lustrous shine. All of the chrome & stainless steel trim has been completely restored and is in show-quality condition throughout. Many of these chrome pieces, ornaments, lenses, etc., are extremely hard to acquire, and lots of time & effort were spent to make sure everything was correct on this car. She sits just right, on the original 15” black steel wheels w/ full chrome Plymouth hubcaps, wrapped w/ P215/75/R15 white-wall tires. You can walk around this car a hundred times and it simply looks outstanding from every angle.
Open the driver’s door and you will find an absolutely gorgeous original-style interior that will take your breath away. Interior features include: the correct multi-color cloth upholstery w/ matching door panels, beautiful woodgrain dash w/ chrome trim, chrome dash insert & chrome control knobs, original AM radio, original steering wheel (beautifully restored), and green loop carpeting throughout. Extremely simple, yet very elegant, this beautiful interior is simply a wonderful contrast to the Bolivia Green exterior. The color combination is out of this world! All of the gauges, lights, blinkers, etc., are in working order, and even the original AM radio sounds great. Heck, even the lighter gets hots! Absolutely nothing was overlooked during the restoration process. The trunk area is fully restored as well, including the matching spare wheel & tire, jack assembly, and original service manuals.
Pop open the hood, and nestled inside the beautifully detailed engine bay resides the rebuilt 218ci Flathead-Six motor, lathered in silver paint w/ all of the correct MOPAR components throughout. Again, lots of time & effort were spent on the motor, making sure that all engine components are as correct as possible. An upgraded stainless-steel radiator was installed to keep her running as cool as possible, as well as a new Interstate 6-volt battery, but other than that everything appears to be factory correct under the hood. The 218ci Flathead-Six is linked to the original 3-speed manual transmission (on-the-tree of course), which feeds power to the original rear end. She fires up instantly, settling into a nice smooth idle, and she runs & drives beautifully in every way. This is a wonderful driving classic car that gets more attention than you can ever imagine. People are just not used to seeing a beautifully restored ’49 Plymouth Coupe cruising the streets, and every time that I drive it, folks are snapping photos w/ their smartphones.
Again, if you are sick of the same old classic cars, and want something unique to park in your home garage, then you will want to take a very close look at this gorgeous 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Club Coupe!
