Founded in 1928 by Walter P. Chrysler himself, Plymouth would eventually see the sunset in 2001. One of the early brands in America’s automobile industry, Plymouth was Chrysler Corporation’s low-price competitor, to take on Ford and Chevrolet at the time. During the Great Depression of 1930-1940, the brand continued producing cars for a struggling public, with models such as the Plymouth Coupe. Nowadays, there are those who like their Thirties cars as original as possible, and those who seek some modernization and customization. If you’re a person from the latter, this 1936 Plymouth Coupe Restomod is suited for you. Read on to find out why this garage-kept example deserves a space, not just in your garage, but in your heart.
Modeled as a hot rod, this 1936 Plymouth Coupe Restomod rocks a new red paintjob, and shaved doors for a truly distinctive stance. It’s jaw-dropping power is further enhanced by its five-spoke, mag-style American Racing polished alloy wheels draped in low-profile tires. The podded headlamps have been enhanced with modern halogen reflector-type units, and the tall vertical grille enjoys some glitz too. Round back, two slit-style tail lamps are the only disruption to the smooth profile, and two polished exhaust tips are visible on either side. The interior has also received the restomod treatment, with modern seats draped in red and black leather and sporting lap belts for safety. A closer look reveals that the driver’s seat enjoys some power adjustments too! That’s not all. A Grant GT sport steering wheel has been installed as well, as have new white-faced gauges from TPI Tech. Even in-car entertainment has taken a much needed upgrade, with a Pioneer head unit that supports CD, WMA, MP3, and AUX in addition to regular, and satellite radio, sitting between two polished air vents for the ventilation system. It also appears that power windows have been installed, judging by the presence of switches on the doors.
Whatever came as stock with this 1936 Plymouth Coupe Restomod, which was likely a carbureted in-line six that produced 100hp or less has been removed, and in its place, a modern Chevrolet Corvette LS1 V8 engine with fuel injection has been slotted in. This grants a much needed power boost, as the LS1 is likely pushing close to 300hp to the rear wheels, via an automatic transmission. The seller reports that the suspension, brakes, and transmission are new, and that an oil change has been performed recently.
