1941 Plymouth P12 Special Deluxe for sale
Professional and Amateur restoration; Professional upholstery; In good running order.
Still needs some cosmetic and mechanical work.
His name is Sid. by the way.
Over the years Sid has had many parts replaced. but not many miles put on them. The engine was professionally rebuilt. the transmission broken down and rebuilt as well. The front end is in very good shape. The brakes were rebuilt. new coil springs put in. new tie rods. There are no obvious worn parts. We put in a new wiring harness. He has a new gas tank. radiator. and fuel pump.
There really aren't any mechanical things left to do. He's a driver. but little things happen that I can't handle and I found out I don't like to putter on cars! The horn shorted out and drained the battery. (We now have a new battery and the horn needs to be replaced. ) The wiper motor works. but we're missing the correct arms that work with the "nubs" that come out of the car. The speedometer doesn't work consistently.
We converted Sid to 12 volt. The lights. headlights. brake lights and add-on turn signals work.
He doesn't pop out of gear but sometimes he's hard to get into 1st. He likes to be eased into it. I'm told there's nothing wrong with first gear. it's a non-synchronized first gear. and has to be spinning at a really low RPM to engage. An old trick at a stop sign is to momentarily shift into second right before shifting into first. it allows the gears to spin down to where they'll line up properly. 2nd and 3rd are fine.
The braking is okay. but we haven't really driven him enough to work in the new shoes/pads. They need adjusting.
The ride is good actually. but (for me) he's a beast to drive. I'm not strong enough to wrestle him around. We did convert to radial tires for a better ride.
As for the paint and body. there was a rusted spot in the truck which I cut out and riveted new metal. He does have bondo on him. I have pictures that shows where. The two-tone paint (which is stock for the '41) was professionally done. There are some nicks and scratches now. I woodgrained the window frames and dash. but they need to be redone. There was no ashtray. so we just covered over it. (You can see it in the picture. I stuck a battery-powered clock in its place. ) There is a radio face plate but nothing behind it.
Window cranks work. There is a small crack in one side window. (Most of the glass has been replaced. ) I don't have the decorated trim that goes on the window frames. I have all the other emblems and they're in decent shape. The running boards are laid over with ribbed rubber.
We have put 1. 00 on the rebuilt engine. but I have no idea what the real mileage is.
He has a spare tire. but no jack. The car is not equipped with air conditioning or a heater. (His "AC" is a pop-up vent under the front windshield!)
The 1941 Plymouth is unique in that the distinctive rounded front grill is only on the 1941. The war started and Plymouth didn't bring out new models until 1946 and the styling was different. You can often see US Army vehicles with the smiley grill as many of the cars were requisitioned for the war effort.
In 1940 three men drove a stock 1941 Plymouth from Detroit. Michigan to Magallanes. Chile. much of it through uncharted territory. This was a distance of more than 15. 00 miles that was covered in eight months.

A'41 is also on the cover of a Caldecott winning children's book that was published in 1941: Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McClosky.
Sid is currently registered and I have the title. He has always been in California and. for the 20 years I've owned him. he has been in a covered garage 19 of those 20 years.
