It is with much regret that I need to sell my 1953 Plymouth. I just bought the car a month ago on Ebay. Upon taking delivery of the car I drove it around for a day. What I didn’t count on was in using the clutch an old injury in my left knee was aggravated and caused me much pain. Not driving stick shift for decades I didn’t even think about it when I bought it. Well, I parked it at my rented garage an hour from where I live and have not driven it since. The car deserves to be driven and I need to pass her on. Just looking to get out of her what I have in her. With the previous owners permission I am sharing his original ad for the car. From the previous owner….

It is all original runs and drives fine and is very simple and reliable. Everything on it works....speedometer works, odometer works, every single solitary light and gauge and switch works....Heat works defrosters etc...It has very nice looking factory solex tinted glass all around and the very desirable factory overdrive...i cruise at 70 mph on good roads, I've had her up to 90. New 6 volt battery,fuel sender....4 new hankook tires, painted whitewalls,new battery,new carburetor,new factory type ignition wires cap points rotor etc.New exhaust,new oil change,new rear main seal(still drips a drop or 2)new brakes all 4 wheels(rears were from 1953 still

.....In my opinion Its NOT a show car, though some probably think it is,.....its a good dependable driver that people go nuts over due to its clean bright unique look.....Interior could use a bit of work like door panels and install the seat covers. Dashboard is original paint and gorgeous with every single thing working. Rear seat original no tears some stains, front split bench some tears and stuffing issues....have 2 sets of vintage seat covers you can install, i put front seat back cover on only .NOT a show car...Im real Im honest...repainted original color about 5 years ago good job for a clean driver. California car most its life so only rust is battery tray from leaking battery, and one small spot on drivers front floor pan where mud was stuck, a super solid western car. Underneath is the color of western car undercarriages,,,I'm sure you car guys know what i mean.....still has its factory exhaust hangers in use. If you want a show car at this price ...good luck, but this is not it...please be real.....Im a car guy and this is a real nice car. There’s a scratch/gouge in the paint on the right rear lower quarter from previous elderly owner backing into object in his garage.

I will add the rust spot is over a body mount on the floor and is about 4 inches in diameter. An easy fix.

The car smells of gasoline when first running it. I am guessing the float may be sticking, but have not investigated it.

Emergency brake not working.

Otherwise the car is as described by its previous owner.

The car is sold as is where is.

Deposit is non refundable please be able to pay for and take quickly...of course this old car is sold as is where is.
