Plymouth Convertible Sedan - 1939
In 1939 chevrolet did not have an open model on the market, nor did any chrysler division except plymouth, which added a four-door convertible sedan to its existing two-door convertible coupe. During its only year in existence just 387 were produced, making the 1939 plymouth convertible sedan a rare and highly collectible prize.

No power top
plymouths were quite modestly priced, conservative family cars, but engineers devised a power top for the 1939 convertible coupe that helped triple sales of the model. Unfortunately, the task of devising such a top for the bigger convertible sedan proved too complex, so buyers still had to remove the center posts and lower the top, side windows and frames by hand. Yet they paid the highest price ever for a plymouth $1,150.
goodbye, rumble seat
the 1939 plymouth body had a sharply prowed front end with horizontal grillework and faired-in headlights. It was the last year for rumble seats. The convertible sedan was built on a 117-in. Wheelbase 3 in. Longer than that of any
other plymouth and was braced by a heavy crossmember. This model had chrome moldings along the running boards, chrome wheel discs and trim rings, whitewall tires, front-door arm rests and plymouths deluxe steering wheel with horn ring. Leather interior trim was standard.
Plymouths four-door convertible sedan did not survive the 1939 model year. Only 387 of that years most expensive plymouth were produced.
