Contrary to popular belief, the Plymouth brand was not named after Plymouth rock. Rather, the name was coined by then-Chrysler executive Joe Frazer after Plymouth binder twine, which was seen to be sturdy, reliable, and low-priced. Plymouth was created to be Chrysler's budget car brand. Fast forward to the current era, and vintage Plymouths in pristine order fetch far more than they ever did brand-new. Of course, they also make great restomod platforms, such as this 1937 Plymouth Deluxe that bears just 6,500 miles after a comprehensive restoration. It's not an all-out restomod, but it retains the classic Thirties design, with some tasteful upgrades here and there.
Clothed in a matte black paint job, this 1937 Plymouth Deluxe showcases the typical Thirties profile that's been popularized by the gangster films of yesteryear. Looking closer, you'd notice the rear-hinged coach doors for back seat access and the podded headlamps. The car rolls on a set of black 15-inch rims shod with modern Cooper tires, reportedly new as per the current owner. The interior is similarly tasteful, retaining much of the period cues of this 1937 Plymouth Deluxe, melded with modern conveniences where required. The current owner reports that the seats have been upholstered and covered with Indian blanket covers. The vintage dash remains, with new retro-styled gauges installed ahead of the driver. Ahead of the passenger and beneath the glovebox lies a modern Kenwood head unit with radio, CD, AUX, and USB connectivity options. Gaze upwards, and you can see that the roof has been lined with Cool It Thermo Tec to help keep the interior cool when the sun is out.
This 1937 Plymouth Deluxe appears to have a V8 engine displacing 257ci, as we are told. Drive goes to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. The current owner reports that the car has been upgraded with power steering and power brakes to make it easier to drive. Riding on leaf springs and shock absorbers, it's best to enjoy the cruise and turn heads wherever you go.
