Vehicle Story

This 1947 Plymouth Special Deluxe business coupe has been customized with a modified roofline, a reupholstered interior, chrome wheels, and a lowered suspension. Under the hood, the 217ci flathead inline-6 has been upgraded with custom headers and an Offenhauser intake, and power is sent to the rear via a replacement 4-speed 700R4 automatic transmission. The seller states that the vehicle has comfortable driving dynamics, optimal panel fitment, and show-quality gloss finishes. Finished in Tuxedo Black over a neutral-tone interior with gray cloth, white trim, and chrome accents, this Special Deluxe is now offered with a clear Texas title in the seller’s name.

The Deluxe full-sized sedan received a new generation in 1946 with two trim levels and a variety of option packaging. This Special Deluxe from the subsequent year was positioned as a higher-trim model and underwent customization including a chopped, lowered, and repainted body in Tuxedo Black. The headlights and marker lights were frenched in, the glass was replaced, and a custom dual exhaust system was been added at the rear. The bumpers, grille slats, and side moldings provide accenting brightwork and are noted to be in good condition.

Chrome-finished smooth wheels are mounted to Ironman tires with good tread remaining. The suspension has been lowered for a raked stance and improved handling.

The interior displays a two-tone black and white theme and has been customized with replacement gray cloth bench upholstery, a new headliner, a pearl white dash with chrome accents, and black carpeting. The factory three-spoke ivory-colored steering wheel remains installed, and side windows are manual-crank style.

Instrumentation is centered around a predominant 100-mph speedometer, a center-dash-mounted analog clock, and gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and voltage. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 2,400 miles, although true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

The rebuilt 217ci flathead inline-6 was rated at 95 horsepower from the factory and is upgraded with an Offenhauser intake, dual carburetors, and custom headers. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a column-shifted replacement 4-speed 700R4 automatic transmission.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel.

AUTOHUNTER ADMIN UPDATE 10/1/21 9:00AM: A walk around video has been added to the listing.

@bbaldwin – Hi folks, my name is Brad and I wish to attest to this sellers honesty and forthrightness! I purchased a vintage auto from this man earlier this year on Autohunter snd found it to be be an amazing experience due to three factors. Autohunter is a easy straightforward platform for one thing. But more importantly I wish to emphasize that this seller named Monte A is so very very honest to his core. He literally lives by his word and you can trust wholeheartedly. He has schooled me through example in our exchange. Finally his cars are never over over stated and are high quality or he would not have purchased in the first place . Strongly recommend this seller without reservation. Brad ...

Wow Brad, I don't have words other than thank you so very much! It was absolutely a two way street regarding our transaction. You did exactly what you said every step of the way and that is so rare now days. At the end of the day all a man has is his word and yours is true. Thank you again for the kind words and God bless you. Monte

I would like to apologize to everyone for the quality of the video. When I loaded it to my computer it was crystal clear. Apparently somewhere in the process it degraded the clarity. The fact that I am the most low tech person around may not help either. Anyway, I would like to thank everyone that has shown interest in my 47 and hope everyone has a very blessed day.

@DOHMA – Evening, do you happen to have any pictures of the build process? How long ago was the chop done? Did you not most all of the rebuild on this? Thanks rd ...

Hey rd, sorry but the car was done when I bought it so I don't have any pictures. From talking to the previous owner I think it was done around three years ago. Thank you very much for your interest and have a blessed evening.

@MikeSWCO – Would this vehicle be what is known in Texas as a “ Monte Grade” automobile? ...

Well, I have been enjoying this hobby for over 25 years and have owned many cars over that time. I do think this car is in the top 15 to 20% of all the cars I have owned. Having a car that drives as good as it looks is one of the main things I look for and this one does.

@dart6 – What was done to lower the car? Did you do the roof chop? ...

Coil springs in the front lowering blocks in the rear. The chop was already done when I bought it. Thank you for your questions.

@DOHMA – What does it have for steering? Does air vent open up in hood? No radio anywhere? Thanks Rd. ...

It has the factory style steering with all new components. At 65 down the highway two fingers. Yes the cowl vent functions. No there is no radio. I thought about putting one in but I really enjoy just listening to the exhaust rumble.

@DOHMA – Morning, beautiful car. Do gauges and speedometer work on it? It looks very road worthy, what is longest road trip you have taken it? Thanks, RD ...

Good morning and thank you very much. Yes, all the gauges work. The speedometer is a little off but the others are dead on. I shot it with a heat gun and the temp gauge was right on and the fuel gauge reads true as well. The longest road trip I have taken it on was 270 miles round trip and it preformed perfectly. Thank you for your questions and have a blessed day.

@Rdub74 – How much was the roof chopped and do the doors and window seal well when closed. Thank you ...

The roof was chopped 3". Yes, everything seals very well. When I wash it I may get a drop or two of water around the top of the window and sometimes none at all. There is very minimal wind noise at 65.
