This 1947 Plymouth is a full custom-built street rod. That's why you have the chopped sleek body, upgraded V8 power, and full custom interior. And because a car like this loves to hug the ground, you can dial-in the best stance wherever you part thanks to the adjustable air ride suspension.
The 1947 Plymouth had a terrific sense of style, and this custom Club Coupe shows us it's the model that should have really been sought-after for the Led Sled treatment back in the day. The distinction starts with the paint. It's a modern PPG urethane finish, but it's done in a classic single-stage style. The result is a vividness that the first hot rodders wanted in a look that could have almost come from their era. And there's a nice sleekness here that's amplified further by the smoothed body featuring frenched headlights, sport mirrors, shaved door handles, deleted trim, fender skirts, a frenched license plate, and '59 Caddy taillights in frenched housings. And of course, the most wind-cheating part of this look comes from all the inches they expertly chopped out of the roofline. There are plenty more of the classic cruiser details, like the dual spotlights, vintage wheel covers, whitewall tires, and nice chrome on the bumpers and grille. Overall, the presentation has the right look that is impressive from every angle on a car that's not afraid to be driven. And every place that you arrive, the adjustable air ride suspension means you can ensure that this has the right stance when people take out their phones to get pics.
Pop the remote door openers to get a great view of the custom interior. The gray tweed has a tasteful and uniform look on the seat, door panels, headliner, and carpeting. There are thoughtful details here, like how the side vent windows were deleted and the steering wheel is borrowed from a later Chrysler to remind you that this custom is a classic Mopar. And this one loves to offer modern conveniences. That's why you have Dynamat insulation, power windows, and an AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth. The air ride controls are right on the dash for easy use. Plus, a Gennie floor shifter, tilt steering column, and a crisp AutoMerter gauge package make it easy to get comfortable for cruising near or far.
The dark engine bay really lets you take notice of the bright details of the upgraded small block V8. The consignor states this 350 cubic inch has been upgraded to a 383 stroker V8. It also has a mild cam, double roller timing chain, Mickey Thompson finned valve covers, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And it's supported by the right pieces, like a newer water pump and a Walker four-core radiator w/electric fan. This 1940s body is set on an El Camino frame for a better ride. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, and an upgraded 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.
Complete with restoration photos, this is the street machine built with the right features and attitude to hit the road all weekend long. It's a cool custom that's made even cooler by being a rarely-seen Plymouth. So if you want to stand out in all the best ways, don't miss this coupe. Call today!!!
