'31 Plymouth Coupe-- Reduced---Now $24,900 (and still very high)


Recommended Posts

I'd be interested to hear the groups opinion on a fair price for this car. I'm pretty sure the $34,800 they are asking isn't one. An equivalent '31 Model A would be $15-$18 (if it ran!) This car has some advantages: Hydraulic brakes, 56 Horsepower (the A was 40), full pressure lubrication and "floating power", but rarity does not equal desirability.

Incorrect interior handles, I think Bumpers are Incorrect also not sure of that Red being a 31 color and finally the shell is suppose to be chrome, nothing rare about 31 PA’s

I put it at 12-14K and that’s because of all the Incorrect Items all can be fixed but takes from current opine. Solid Car has a 58 hp motor

No idea on value of this car, but for $30k+ it looks tired, and dirty and .......  well just not a $30k car. For the asking price I would expect a class winner. I may be wrong, and I apologize if I offend anyone but I think of the Model A as starting point for this era of collectible car. I think to myself what would a Model A cost, and then go from there. All others seem to be priced higher, I suppose because they made so many Fords. I would think a compatible A could be had in the $15k range or less.

The 4 cylinder Plymouth, especially the 1931 and 1932 cars are great drivers, ride well, have much more power then a  Model A ( that is not a put down just fact) and stop and steer well. I had a 1931 Pa sedan for years but sold it because I out grew it physically. My legs got to long and I couldn't move the front seat back any further to be comfortable. ALL STEEL body makes you not have to think about structural wood replacement/alignment etc. "Peppy" car performance wise.

This car needs a lot of time and effort plus $ spent to get it to "clean up" - replate the radiator shell is $1,000 . The rubber engine mounts if they haven't been replaced will need to be. Price listed is more then very optimistic - is unrealistic. Yes I like the 4 cylinder Plymouths and if I fit in one would still own one.

I love Mopar products of this era. They have features Fords don't (like hydraulic brakes) but they also don't have Ford's wonderful support. This car, being a 4 cylinder, is going to sell for a little less than the equivalent Model A. How much is a non-running '31 A  coupe worth?

There's a nice, RUNNING, '31 Model A coupe being advertised here for $11.5K.

If the Model A didn't run, I'm guessing it'd be worth more like $8K. I always assume the worst about a non-runner.

If there's a premium for Plymouths over Model A's, maybe the Plymouth's worth $10K as is?
