SOLD-----SOLD----SOLD-----Just driven in from 120 miles away at highway speeds. It drove and handled well. A 1939 2-door sedan with the split back window and the trunk-back design. Powered by a GM 400 small block backed by a 400 turbo automatic transmission shifted by a retro-looking original-style long shifter. Power steering and power front disc brakes make driving this '39 pleasurable. The instrument cluster consists of the following working gauges: amp; oil pressure; temperature; speed-o; odo w/trip odo. The gas gauge is there but it is not hooked up. It's got an electric fan up in front of the radiator which seems to be doing a great job of keeping the engine cool both in town and on our 120 mile trip home. Nice driver-quality dark red paint w/ghost flames on the front fenders around the headlights. Nice burgundy cloth highback bucket seat interior (not original seats, but they look and fit the car's interior perfectly). The interior is completely finished in a nice maroon cloth material that matches the seats to a 'T'. At present there is no glass in either door but it did come with both smoked glasses and the power motor kits/mechanisms for the doors. The rest of the smoked glass has been nicely installed in the car, including the vent windows in the doors. No heat nor a/c. The frame and suspension is from an ElCamino (? year) and is okay for the cruiser it is right now. The '39 Plymouth did come w/a complete Camaro-subframed rolling chassis from a like-year Plymouth, and it is available with the car for a nominal fee. I'll try to do some checking and measuring to see just what the subframed rolling chassis is and what it was from. I was told it was from this car------update 10/23/12 - I measured the body mounting holes (4)and they are the same---the rear (2) are the same also. Drive it now and tweek it as you enjoy it now! Great stance and unique original bodylines. All lights and blinkers work (blinkers cancel as they should). Really solid body and top. Front and rear fenders are very solid and original and don't show any signs of bonodo---'just good old American steel'. It has a fuel cell (12-14 gallon or so w/a foam baffle) in the finished trunk area with lots of storage room left over. Tilt, am/fm/cd, 16" alloy wheels w/245/50 R 16" tires. Overall the car is just a nice Saturday night cruiser or a run to the Sonic for a drink type of car. It needs some reworking/stiffening in the body mounting to chassis category and I think that the rolling frame/chassis that I got w/the car would take care of that in a swap. But once again I've now driven the '39' well over 200 miles since I bought it w/o any problems.
