For Sale: 1931 Plymouth PA Deluxe Sport Roadster


Recommended Posts

This Plymouth was restored by Leo Gephart and I bought it at auction in Auburn. It has sidemounts, trunk rack, rumble seat, wind wings and other options. It is a good driver, however, it has been sitting for a while and needs the early hydraulic brakes overhauled plus woken-up from sitting for several years.

 

 $28,000 or best offer.

 

Car is located near downtown Atlanta, in the O4W area, if you're familiar with the city. This car has to go to a new owner.

 

Contact Harry at (404) 234-3506.

SparkEE, please understand I am posting this info for the seller and what info I provide is all I have.

If you wish to have your question addressed, I strongly suggest you give Harry a call, as I don't think he's as computer-centric as many of us are.

That makes sense, thank you.  It’s pretty close to one of the cars I’m after, just a year too early.  The four cylinder Plymouth’s are surprisingly powerful little cars.  Someone will enjoy this!

It should have the Carter BB-1 Carburetor, and Keiser31 (John) is correct it has the 33 plymouth flying lady the 31-32 PA and PB share the shorter stubbier Flying lady good Eye fellows also looks like it does not have the 19" wheel or it has the 32-34 plymouth hubcap with 17" wheel But cannot see close enough on that one.

the 1931 had a 58 horsepower four Silverdome and the last year 1932 PB had the 65 horsepower 🙂

This Plymouth has a PB engine in it...Another note...the car was probably restored in the 60's, 70's and has nitrocellulose lacquer paint on it that is cracking.  I have driven this car 4 or 5 thousand miles since I bought it, It is fast and has good acceleration. Also the brakes (which are hydraulic) need a full overhaul. Someone put an overdrive unit in the drive train of which I have never used.

That should be a very helpful sales feature for finding a new owner who wants an early car that can keep up with traffic without revving the engine.

We know the 1931-32 had the Freewheeling, the overdrive unit is not factory, so based on having a PB engine in a PA and some modified Overdrive unit that did not come in 1931-32 Plymouths for that matter 33 and 34 Plymouth’s had no Overdrives So I would surmise it was not restored that the car was conditioned at some point, but probably should be sold as a nice Driver, but would never be a Senior winner with a PB engine Good luck with your sale, It still would make super nice fun driver.  I know my 1929 U  Roadster and My 32 PB Roadster are fun I can do 63 mph with my PB silver dome four banger

Cheers

Yeah he said it was added before you went off on your one-man argument (which was and still is a common and sought after addition to make these cars more drivable), never claimed it was ready to be a ‘Senior winner’, you’re not interested in it — so what is your beef?

These comments are typical on a showfield (whispered behind the owner’s back of course) I suggest you keep them there and off the For Sale ads.

 

This Plymouth and the Lincoln would both have a place in my barn — if I had a barn. Sadly, I do not.

The cars are priced right.

There is an original free wheeling unit and an overdrive.

I am pointing out the things that the car should or shouldn't have keeping it original, Being I have all the early Roadsters, Harry pointed out that the car had original free wheeling unit and an overdrive Not, that’s all Ben P P Maybe someone who is a newbie should not tell a senior member what I can and cannot say, this is a post and forum which means its open to opinion’s thats all I was pointing out he said it was original.And I said It would make a super driver thats what it is! Again Harry wish you luck with your sales

thehandleman: You are absolutely correct, this Plymouth will make one super driver.

I can understand the confusion, but no, at no point was it said that the overdrive was original. It had already been said that it was added and was later clarified that the freewheeling was original.


You also managed to answer a lifelong question I’ve had: What makes bullies tick? From your own words, it’s just an obsession with ‘status’ — real or imagined. That would also explain the bizarre phenomenon of bystanders (most of whom would never bully on their own) joining in and piling on. Again, it’s only for the perception of status.

 

I am shocked by how little there was to it.

I appreciate the comments and insight.  How else are we to learn things.  I know what is correct on  my cars and what is incorrect and I have no problem if someone pointed it out particularly if I would be selling it.  Thanks for your knowledge and insight.
