Plymouth P2 Phaeton

During the mid 1930s, Plymouth competed in the same market segment as other low-priced cars such as Ford, Chevrolet, and Nash Lafayette.

In addition to convertibles and commercial vehicles, the Plymouth line consisted of both two and four door models available either with or without a built in trunk. Style conscious buyers of the day preferred the more modern look of the built-in trunk and sales of such models outstripped those of the trunkless variety by a margin of 20 to 1.

Plymouths built for domestic sales were equipped with it 201 cubic-inch straight six engine rated at 82 hp.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in July of 2010 at the Shotwell Gustafson Pavilion at Meadow Brook Hall, Rochester, Michigan.
