The 1940 Plymouth was just a refined/restyled version of the 1939 Plymouth and it shocks the modern car buyer that the US automakers would completely redesign most of their cars once very 12 months. But the automotive industry was a very dynamic place with lots of competition and minimal brand loyalty (yet), so anyone who didn't offer new styling was in for a rude awakening when the sales numbers came in.
This Plymouth is powered by a flathead inline-6 that puts something like 82 horsepower out of its 201 cubic inch of displacement, just enough power for basic transportation needs...but enough.
