1936 Plymouth Other Convertible

Just in time for Spring / summer cruises as well as power tours…

An Unbelievable “RARE” 36’ Plymouth Cabriolet custom Built by chrysler corporation for the 1936 tournament of roses “rose bowl parade. “Yes”, this was the 1936 roses bowl parade queen’s car!

Top Up or Down, it is a blast and one of the best built, best driving Street Rods I have had the pleasure to be a part of. Just throw the Kiddos in the Rumble-Seat, hit the key and take off.

The Beautiful Dessert Rose paint is very fitting given its Rose Bowl Parade Pedigree.

This is one of the rare opportunities that captures you and just makes you want it...It has Beautiful Straight Dessert Rose Paint, Burgundy Mercedes Leather, MOPAR Drivetrain with Automatic Transmission, ICE-COLD AIR and Looks AWESOME from every angle.

Overall Condition: This 36’ Cabriolet is Very Nice in every way… It is sharp at every angle, it was a WELL-BUILT, WELL THOUGHT OUT Street Rod, an excellent driving machine, is mechanically sound and has an awesome curb appeal! You CAN DRIVE THIS CAR ANYWHERE and in any Weather…

It is a Great Investment As Well as hitting the road with the utmost confidence!!

If you are keeping up with the warp-speed trends of the Mid-30’ Convertibles, you know a few important key points… They are Extremely Popular, Very Collectable, Hard to Find, looks great and everybody envies their owners! Keep in mind, I am referring to A Part of AMERICANA Rose Bowl Parade History and not just a 36’ Plymouth! It is just simply a Cool Car!

I love the feel and sound of this car and would not be afraid to take it anywhere! The Mopar Drivetrain has the perfect blend of torque, smoothness with a light roaring sound through the exhaust. Hit the key and take off…it’s that simple. This is a car for many levels of competition, power-tours, or just simple family fun at the local shows or cruise-ins. A BIG FISH in any-size pond comes with the ownership of this machine.

This 36’ has 3,500 tested miles… It has been a Southern California car most all of its life before being shipped to Florida where it was modified as a street rod. It was well taken care of prior to its extensive high-cost construction. My friend who part-time lives in Florida bought the car, and tweaked a couple of things before bringing it to me just prior to the Street Rod Nationals South in Tennessee… We did not like the style of the existing upholstery and had it redone last month.

The body is fantastic with zero rust anywhere and very solid throughout… it took several years to build this car and the Craftsmanship really shows… It all works like it should, drives like you dream about a street rod should and is a Top-Down cruiser that can just go anywhere at any time by just getting in and hitting the key.

Things work as they should including but not limited to Headlights / Taillights, Signals, Interior Dash Gauges, Heat, Cold A/C, Speedometer, Wipers, Horn, Smooth shifting 3-Speed Automatic, etc.… The Car also comes with an extensive folder of manuals, component details, Rose Bowl Parade Info and receipts used in this build.

Is this car Perfect? No and none of them are… that said, I guess it is just a good thing to state a disclaimer but I know of nothing wrong or to report about the car.

Why am I selling it? Space, space, space… I am moving and have a significantly reduced amount of space until I get my new garage built.

I reserve the right to end this ad early due to having it for sale locally...
