“... the body was restored ... to appear in like-new condition, which is where we get the term 'resto,' short for 'restored.' Once the car takes on parts to improve its performance, handling, and safety, the car has now been 'modified.'" Motor Trend, July 2019
The Motor Trend editor's definition of a “resto-mod” might well have been written to perfectly describe the 1934 Plymouth PE offered here. And while every automotive category sees a wide range of cars, some exceptional, some not, this red Plymouth stands at the top of the resto-mod quality scale where execution and details tell the tale.
The car's exterior paint across the all-steel body is virtually flawless, and red never looked better on a car. The shine and smoothness of the finish is exceptional. From its grille surround to its re-engineered firewall, to the gracefully sloping rear end that marked this Plymouth when it was new, the red paint draws the eye and generates the oohs and ahhs. Ample chrome finish on the bespoke Plymouth grille, headlights, bumpers, windshield-surround, taillights, and wheels is flawless. The hood ornament and Plymouth grille badge are simply beautiful. The black-fabric convertible top provides perfect contrast.
Under the hood, and visible from both sides by way of the hood panels, is the 225 cubic-inch Slant 6 powerplant (in red, of course) with bored .030, forged pistons, and appropriately topped with a Mopar-branded air cleaner assembly. Chrome valve covers and engine trim bits including Holley 320 CSM carburetor add visual excitement. The engine bay is automotive art. Under the car, lots more evidence of the quality of this extensive build abounds. Perfectly routed exhaust, x-frame, and spotless finishes are evident. The disc brakes and 727 Torque Flight automatic transmission also bear out the comprehensive updating that results in 21stcentury roadworthiness.
The car's interior is fully and beautifully updated, and again, red dominates. Leather seating—including the rumble seat—and leather door trim is all fresh and professionally installed. Carpeting is without a hint of wear. The steering column is topped by a red-leather-trimmed Lecarra sport steering wheel. In a perfect resto-mod touch, the floor-mounted automatic shifter and emergency-brake lever retain the style of the car's original 1934 setup. The dashboard features machine-turned metal, Moon gauges, and classic oval glovebox cover concealing a modern Pioneer audio head unit.
While the more than 125 high-definition photographs of the car taken from every angle, including from underneath, faithfully represent this perfectly resto-modded Plymouth, cataloging every detail of this remarkable build would take a book-length tome. For that reason, as well as to fully appreciate the visual delight of this remarkable automobile, we encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. We ask only that an advance appointment be arranged by phone or email. Our showroom is not open to the public, so your appointment helps ensure you have our full attention during your visit.
With only 5,000 miles driven since the car's build was completed, there's almost no limit to the number of fall cruise drives, cars-and-coffee gatherings, and moonlight top-own drives ahead for the next owner of this one-of-a-kind resto-mod.
