Some cars are hard to let go and some inspire boundless family loyalty. This is one such car, a 1940 Plymouth Deluxe Four-door Touring Sedan, currently at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. It has been owned by the original purchased Oregon family from new until 2007! Currently the Plymouth is still titled on its original 1940 Oregon license plates "14-852" and was purchased by the families close neighbor who restored the Plymouth in 2008 (documented) and who was also vice president of the Cascade Pacific Plymouth Club.The Plymouth was treated to a correct factory specification, no expense spared, rotisserie frame off nut and bolt restoration. After restoration the Plymouth was a 2016 Forest Grove Oregon Concourse Winner 2016. The cherry on top for this stunning post war sedan is the included documentation such as binder of 1940 Plymouth information, before and after photos, multiple advertisements, service and operation schedule, brochures, a question-and-answer booklet, paint chips, a repair and tune-up manual, restoration receipts and full historic written story by the original owner's granddaughter Charlene Weber.This concourse winning Plymouth was originally made in Chrysler’s Los Angeles, California factory in late summer or early fall of 1939 (it was just the 148th vehicle built there that year) and shipped to the Tarola Motor Car Company in Portland, Oregon. On October 9, 1939, the original owner, named Sadie C., traded in a used Chevrolet sedan (year not recorded) for the Plymouth. Her husband used the Plymouth to drive to his job at the shipyards.Finished in an outstanding blue metallic, the car’s paint and trim are in overall excellent order. The windows, lights and bodywork are all in similar fantastic condition. Note the driver’s side only reverse light perched above the back bumper. The engine bay is extremely tidy and the trunk looks great, too, with its spare tire, wheel and wheel cover plus a jack. The car’s chrome bumpers and grill trim shine brilliantly.This Plymouth rolls on Goodyear Deluxe All-Weather wide whitewalls, size 6.00-16 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted around correct body-colored beauty rings with factory center caps. The tires are in very good order while the wheels are in excellent order.Under the hood is the original matching numbers 201 CID flathead six-cylinder engine bolted to a three-speed manual transmission with auto-mesh. The engine had familiar “L” head while the compression ratio remained at 6.7 to 1, the highest figure in the low-priced field. Again, four piston rings were used and the engine had full pressure oil lubrication. The crankshaft used four main bearings. Cooling syste
