From the seller:
You are looking at a 1950 Plymouth Deluxe P-19 2-door Fastback. This Plymouth is completely stock, with the 6-cylinder flathead motor with 3-speed transmission. This Plymouth runs excellent, always starts. The transmission has some noisy main shaft bearing noises, but doesn't do it in third gear. The gauges all work excellently. The gas tank has been cleaned and a new gas tank sending unit installed. All the gauges work like they should. The wipers work, all the lights work, horn works, the dash is in excellent condition with the original wood grain look. The heater and defroster work good, it gets nice and toasty inside. It has 15-inch radial tires that are in good shape, with spare tire and wheel. As you can see in the pictures, it has some dents and scrapes, but still retains its original paint, with some touch-ups, and is about 98% rust-free. The upholstery is all original with seat covers, headliner is still intact. It needs some chrome moldings and some grill bars. We rebuilt the carburetor, installed a new radiator and new battery, checked all the fluids and greased the front end. This Plymouth has been sitting inside most of its life. All the rubber around the windows is still soft and pliable. The car has 68,000 original miles and has been in a dry climate all of its life. This car has excellent patina. This is a very rare body style that is hard to find. The Plymouth is very driveable as-is or an excellent candidate for restoration. Email or call for more information thanks.

  1. One of my favorite cars. Haven't seen too many. This for me would be a rolling refresh. No restoration. Recover the seats, a paint job, go through the trans. It is a notch down from a Hudson Hornet, but easier to get parts and a bit smaller.

    1. I think it would be a crime to repaint this thing - it has a very honest "wabi sabi" going on. Cool tiger stripes on the hood. Notice I didn't use the P-word. Maybe repair the big shallow dents in the driver's door, but man after 68 years I think it's earned the right to look the way it does.

  2. My Folks had either Dodges or Plymouth's of this vintage never seen the FB style plenty of Fords had this look pretty Cool for a CHRYCO AKA MOPAR
