The Plymouth Special Deluxe is a full-sized automobile produce by Plymouth from 1946-1950. As the war in Europe wound down, the US Government slowly began allowing the automobile industry to return to car making.New models offered in 1946 were the P15S Deluxe and the P15C Special Deluxe. Special Deluxes were available in four door sedan, club coupe, convertible coupe, and woody station wagon. The Special Deluxe model was powered by a 3.6 lite, 97 hp engine and a manual three-speed transmission.Offered from the Richard Reinhold estate is an original 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe owned by famed classic car restorer Richard Reinhold. The Special Deluxe was originally delivered through the Hettinger Brothers Chrysler Plymouth dealership in Reading, PA to Howard Wolford of Fleetwood, PA. Mr. Wolford chose to have Hettinger Brothers repaint the car from its original Brown exterior color prior to delivery. This was a common practice as following the war there were waiting lines for new cars and choices of options were limited at best.With just over 45,000 original miles, the original interior looks as nice today as it did in 1949. Special notice to the wood veneers on the dash and their perfect patina. With recent valve and brake work, the Plymouth is ready to drive and enjoy for years to come. Always maintained to the highest standard and stored in climate controlled environment, this time capsule Lancaster/Berks County classic is offered for the first time in 50 years. As presented, the Special Deluxe Plymouth offers a rare opportunity to own and enjoy a pristine original classic car for very fair price.- 2 owner from new- 1 Dealer repaint at initial delivery in 1948- Always locally owned- Completely serviced and road ready
