Information on 1940 Plymouth vehicles
Plymouth was one of America's most popular automobiles during the 1940s. Chrysler Corporation had the foresight to see that changes were needed to keep the division as a frontrunner in years to come. With that goal the 1940 Plymouth was manufactured bigger and sleeker to attract consumers wanting the quality of Chrysler without the sticker price.
The Road King and Deluxe models were designed with style and innovative features. Potential buyers in 1940 noted a similarity to the Chrysler fender design from front to rear and a rounded rear glass window. The high-class look was increased with chrome detailing, a favorite implementation of coach makers. Perhaps the most notable feature was the jewel set, hermetically sealed headlamps that provided better road vision during night driving.
Chrysler finally broke down and gave the 1940 Plymouth the sleek look of branded Chrysler automobiles. Production began the first of August, 1939 on a wider, longer vehicle, most notable in the station wagon. The engine was placed 4 inches forward, the rear axle relocated, and the passenger area relocated to inside the suspension, providing a smoother ride.
A change to the windows increased visibility. The windshield had less of a dividing bar and the rear window became one piece rather than two. Both interior and trunk space were significantly increased. The company did away with the rumble seat in the coupe and convertible because of the increased size of the models. The Club Coupe was fitted with auxiliary seats in the rear that folded away after use.
The less expensive Road King P9 included a two or four-door sedan. It also featured a 2-passenger coupe. Vehicles found within the 1940 Plymouth's Deluxe P10 series included convertible, 2-passenger business, and club coupes, a station wagon, and limo. In keeping with its goal to be a frontrunner in sales, Plymouth also courted business owners by offering a commercial lineup of pickup trucks and a panel delivery sedan, both set on the Road King chassis.
