The Plymouth Deluxe is a full-sized automobile which was produced by American manufacturer Plymouth from 1946 to 1950. It offered in two trim levels, the Deluxe and the top-of-the-line Special Deluxe. As the war in Europe wound down, the U.S. government slowly began allowing the automobile industry to return to the car-making business. It had been four years since any new cars had been built, and those cars still on the road were beginning to show their age. “The more you know about the new Plymouth… the more convinced you are that not all the beauty is on the surface. You can't see them all, but you can feel them in action.”

  • Der Plymouth Deluxe war ein großer PKW, den Chrysler unter dem Markennamen Plymouth in den Modelljahren 1933 bis 1942 und 1946 bis 1950 herstellte. Er ersetzte den New Finer Plymouth und war die am besten ausgestattete Baureihe in den Jahren bis 1942. Ab 1941 wurde zusätzlich ein noch besser ausgestatteter Plymouth Special Deluxe angeboten. 1946 war er der erste PKW der Marke nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Cabriolet und Kombi waren nur als Special Deluxe erhältlich. 1951 wurde er vom Dreigestirn Concord, Cambridge und Cranbrook abgelöst. (de)
  • La Model PD era anche disponibile a telaio nudo, cioè senza carrozzeria. In tal modo, i clienti potevano completare la vettura dal proprio carrozziere di fiducia. Nello specifico, il modello era dotato di un motore a valvole laterali e sei cilindri in linea da 3.110 cm3 di cilindrata che sviluppava 70 CV di potenza. Il cambio era a tre rapporti e la trazione era posteriore. I freni erano idraulici sulle quattro ruote. (it)
  • The Plymouth Deluxe is a full-sized automobile which was produced by American manufacturer Plymouth from 1946 to 1950.

As the war in Europe wound down, the U.S. government slowly began allowing the automobile industry to return to the car-making business. It had been four years since any new cars had been built, and those cars still on the road were beginning to show their age. “The more you know about the new Plymouth… the more convinced you are that not all the beauty is on the surface. You can't see them all, but you can feel them in action.” Plymouth's new models for 1946 were once again offered in two series, the P15S Deluxe and P15C Special Deluxe. Deluxe body styles included a four-door sedan, two-door sedan, club coupe, and business coupe. Special Deluxes added a convertible coupe and wood-body station wagon to the line-up. Waiting lists were common at dealerships. Those wanting a new car placed their name, and often a cash deposit, with the dealer. Customers hoped that as new cars became available, they would move up the list until it was their turn to take delivery. Car buyers with their name on every dealer's list in town were not uncommon; reports of money paid under the table were common, as were scalpers who would put their new car on the market at a price considerably higher than they had paid for it. The first post-war Plymouth, a P15S Deluxe, came off the line October 22, 1945. Special Deluxes would follow four days later. Bodies for the P15 Plymouths were virtually unchanged from 1942, with only minor trim differences. “Engineering magic greets you right from the start. You don’t grope for a starter button or pedal. You don’t pull on a choke. You simply turn the ignition key- and the engine starts.” Plymouth literature claimed fifty improvements over the prewar cars; many were of little significance but were changes nonetheless. Mechanically there were few changes. The 217 ci engine stayed the same and was still rated at 95 hp, attained at 3600 rpm instead of 3400 rpm. An economy engine package using a smaller intake manifold and carburetor with 1 inch bore returned to the option list. Aluminum pistons replaced the cast iron ones that had been mandated during the war. Like many vendors, Carter couldn't supply enough of their model D6G 1 carburetors to meet Plymouth's production demands; Stromberg, which normally supplied Ford, provided its model 3-84 carburetor. Replacing the disposable oil filter was a new cleanable canister that contained a replacement cartridge. “Outside and in, it’s a completely new Plymouth. Compare it feature for feature. Sit in it. Ride in it. Drive it. Then you’ll surely agree.” (en)
