The Model - Fun, Action, Thrills --- Find them in a Plymouth! That was the new message Plymouth was sending to customers. The Plymouth PJ was offered in a variety of configurations for 1935. Seen here as a two door business coupe, it was also offered as a 4 door and a rumble seat coupe. The 1935 model was remarkable, as the new design featured 4 wheel hydraulic brakes and was purported to use 20% less gasoline.
The car - The product of an older nut and bolt restoration, the deep black with contrasting red accents set this Plymouth apart from the other business coupes from the iconic 30’s. The dark paint displays how laser straight the metal body is below its shine. The mohair interior shows only light use and is fit for this pre-war relic. The engine and engine bay have been restored and returned to the factory condition. A great parade car or a car show delight, this Plymouth is a solid and very clean example of pre-war engineering. Our overall condition rate is a strong 2 with a minus to account for the fact that is an older restoration.
