Description for Plymouth Other 1938

"Miss Daisy" is a 1938 Plymouth P6 sedan in light tan (Hampton Beige?). She's powered by her original 82 hp "L-Head" straight 6 cylinder engine and three speed manual transmission. Her previous owner converted her to 12 volts and replaced the wheels with later model Plymouth rims so she can wear wider, wide white wall Cokers. I don't have the original rims. He also added a small "third brake light" above the trunk in the back. I imagine you could take it off, but I'd rather have that up where folks can see it than to count on them seeing the original brake lights down where they are.
She has an original, working inside firewall heater and defoggers! The fog lights also work, as do the high-beams.

Within the last year or so, she's had her fuel tank replaced with a poly version and an electric fuel pump added. The shifter spring was also replaced, as were all sway-bar bushings.
The previous owner restored the interior, providing for me a roll of extra fabric in case it's ever needed (and, needless to say, will go with the car).
Her paint is as it was when I bought her back in 2012. It's smooth and without any cracks, but there are sporadic imperfections. The chrome is excellent, as is all the glass. The vacuum wipers still work but, remember, they're vacuum wipers. She's won about a half dozen trophies over the years.
She's starred in some indie films and airshows, so she has a European Hi-Lo air horn siren as well as a small, American 12 volt siren. Under the dash is hidden an MP3 player (with 30's music) wired to the original radio speaker. The original dash radio is there, but no longer functions.
Vehicle sold as is, where is. Buyer is naturally responsible for all taxes, fees and shipping costs. She's an old girl, so I wouldn't count of trying to drive her cross-country. There weren't any interstate highways when she rolled out of the Plymouth factory.
A final word on classics: Remember that, while simpler than modern cars, they need TLC to stay running. Some mechanics are temporarily puzzled when working on these. If you're not a mechanic yourself, make sure you know one nearby who knows how to work on these older vehicles.
