Description for Plymouth PT125 1941

This truck has had a frame off full restoration about eight years ago. It is in excellent running and driving condition, and everything works as it should. The overhauled original engine does not smoke or burn oil. The transmission shifts perfectly. The clutch and brakes work great. All lights and signals work as they should.
It was a revolutionary truck for Plymouth. It featured a larger cab, and cab forward design for more cargo capacity.
Only 6073 of these trucks were built, and only 19 of those that have been restored to original condition are known to stillexist.
This is an extremely rare truck that is in very good condition.
A history of the truck by Hemmings:
1941 marks the year that the United States got into the war and Plymouth got out of selling trucks. Not a shattering occurrence in the truck market, given that only 6,073 of the 1941 Plymouth pickups were ever built, but unquestionably a bittersweet milestone for Mopar fans.

With its low-priced cars, Plymouth was a crashing breaker on the expanding American mass market when Chrysler introduced the brand in 1928. Now deceased, even for cars, the Plymouth nameplate still stands as one of the most rapidly spreading sales wildfires in industry history. By 1934, one out of every four new American cars was a Plymouth. Blessed with that kind of success, Plymouth dealers were still clamoring for more opportunities, so Chrysler began easing the brand onto commercial turf. In 1935, Plymouth introduced a two-door “commercial sedan,” and a panel delivery the year after that. In 1937, Plymouth finally rolled out a line of actual light trucks.

The first Plymouths for business use were intended to augment the Dodge light trucks that were also in Chrysler’s hat. The early ones were styled like Plymouth cars, but actually shared little of the sheet metal. They did, however, employ the very basic 201.3-cu.in. L-head straight-six, with 70hp in truck trim, that powered Plymouth cars of the same years. The “car” look lasted through 1939, when the trucks were restyled to look like trucks, even though they still shared the auto engine and most car chassis components. The 1939 styling would endure, largely unmodified except for the substitution of sealed-beam headlamps, until the last Plymouth pickups were built for the 1941 model year.
