The elegant PJ body was introduced in 1935 and was completely new from the frame up. It marked Plymouth’s styling change overall look from “square” to “round”. The convertible has beautiful lines. The 6-cylinder, valve-in-block engine was redesigned to include extra water jacketing and bored out to the 201.3 cid that would be used until the 942 models. Factory price $695 and only 2308 were produced. Only the convertible coupe came standard equipped with “Duplate” safety glass throughout this year.
The body on this PJ Deluxe Coupe is in good condition overall. All exterior stainless looks great. All the trim is present except a 4” section of the center vertical grille trim bar. The car has been repainted and is cream body with light tan fenders and a tan convertible top. The Convertible top is complete with a rear glass window. The interior seats, door cards are in brown leather with tan carpet and are in excellent condition. The tan rumble seat upholstery is in good condition. The beautiful Plymouth sailing ship adorns the hood. The steering wheel and horn ring are original to the car in look good. Noted is some former rust repair in the rear panel behind the bumper/below the rumble seat opening. Options on this car: Front and rear bumpers guards, radio, steel spare tire cover. PJ Deluxe added accessory package is present.
The engine will turn over by hand but cannot start due to the electrical system needing some attention. The electrical issues are not letting lights and horn work. The transmission shifter moves freely through all gears in stationary position. The car will need brakes and all wheel cylinders, master cylinder and hoses replaced. The air cleaner is missing. The tires display well but will need to be replaced before trying to drive car. There is a spare tire but no jack or tools.
Overall, this car needs the electrical system sorted and brakes repaired but the body appears to be very sound so it would be a beautiful car to get running and drive top down!
