1937 Plymouth P3 Convertible Coupe

Plymouth P3 Convertible Coupe. Series P3 Custom ConvertibleIf you compare this car to the one that rolled off the assembly line in Detroit 70 years ago, you will find almost no dimension the same, no material of original construction except for the 11 gauge steel body - unspoiled by the passage of time. Here is a fully modified, completely detailed, masterfully reconstructed ragtop that is just what an old time MOPAR fan might dream of. A trophy magnet at shows all over the American Southwest, often carrying home Best of Show credentials. Featured on the covers of rodding magazines over time, the car still draws huge crowds anxious to see a real hot rod that is something other than a Ford or Chevy. . Starting with the underpinnings, it has a boxed and gusseted X member frame set up with a Chrysler torsion bar independent front suspension, a 9 inch Ford differential, Mustang II rack and pinion front steering (new in 2017), and 4 wheel power disk brakes. This is a gentleman?s hot rod ? it wears a Bowtie in the form of a Speed & Performance tuned port injected 350 CID small block producing about 365 horsepower at 5500 rpm. This power is fed to a GM 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission and a 9 inch Ford rear end. A big aluminum cross flow radiator keeps things cool under the hood and the dual exhaust is threaded through the frame, tucked up and away from the road.This Plymouth started life as a P3 business coupe. The top was shorn, custom made convertible bows and a cranberry Mercedes cloth retractable top were hand crafted to make this a one-off convertible. Then, the grille shell and aft roll pan were modified with custom metalwork. Extraneous trim was removed and the body was nosed, decked, shaved, and smoothed. Even the bumpers were jettisoned so that the glitter of chrome is restricted to direct the viewer to the unique features of this ride. 1941 Plymouth headlights were grafted to the front fenders, custom taillights were frenched into the aft fenders, and special inboard exhaust ports were crafted to blend into the body lines. Radial tires surround 17 inch custom alloy rims produced by Colorado Custom. Of course this beautiful droptop has ice cold air conditioning, a sound system, and awesome personal comfort for driver and passengers as they lounge in soft, bolstered, power adjustable bucket seats covered in cranberry marine vinyl, highlighted with ostrich grained inserts. The seat backs tilt forward to reveal a handy storage area, and the spacious trunk has plenty of room for luggage on those long road trips. It has a LeCarra leather wrapped banjo steering wheel, polished Ididit tilt steering column, and a custom instrument bezel with ivory faced gauges. To be sure - this Plymouth ROCKS!
