Plymouth Convertible Coupe
Plymouth got curvaceous new exterior styling for all of 1939. The pleasing new look featured a tall, peaked "prow" with horizontal chrome grill trim, a modern V-type windshield and distinctive rectangular headlamps integrated into bulbous new front fenders.
The 1939 Plymouth Deluxe Convertible Coupe also boasted a vacuum powered convertible top – a Chrysler first. A companion Plymouth Deluxe four-door convertible sedan – the last of this classic body style offered by Chrysler Corporation – join the 1939 Plymouth line for one, final year.
Just 387 were built. This would also be the last year for the wind in your hair rumble seat, would would be replaced for 1940 with a conventional trunk and luggage compartment, with the rear seat inside.
