In the last seven decades, this 1947 Plymouth Special Deluxe four door sedan has gone from a practical car to downright stylish. So to find an example like this that has given it a few updates but doesn't erase the quality and fun-to-drive quotient, it's an affordable and enjoyable way to get an early post WWII classic.
This is a great piece of American history. Very similar to the pre-war Plymouths, these cars were about getting vehicles into the hands on an eager nation that was ready to once again celebrate the open road. This one symbolizes that cheery optimism with all that glittering bright work against the glossy black paint. Besides the wraparound chrome bumpers, there are plenty of great stylist's touches. You see it in elements like full-length trim that even incorporates the door handles. And up front, the tri-bar grille incorporates the parking lights as well as the fender/headlight trim. This one was given a refresh/restoration a while ago and treated with respect ever since – you know it by the way you can close the doors with confidence. So it has the right look for a cool cruising classic that's not overdone, yet it still knows how to command attention.
