If there’s one thing I do not see at all among any Concours event I attend it is pre-war Plymouths. They aren’t hugely collectible, not very distinctive, and really weren’t a high-class sort of car during the Depression. However, they were cheap and reliable, and often more stylish then at first glance. Luckily, this little roadster got itself a spot at Radnor last weekend.

This is a ’32 P8 Roadster in Princeton University colors, and I could easily see it as a giveaway for a lucky alumnus at a football game during the fall semester in 1932. This is a 31 year old restoration and it looks like it just rolled out of the shop door a few hours ago–the paint was polished to a high mirror shine, and at one of just 320 produced for 1932, this is quite a rare car and I doubt, considering how many early Plymouths are running around in general, that I’ll see another one as good as this, or even any at all. I genuinely enjoyed looking at it–the color accentuates the sporty body style, with a very nice luggage rack and a tan top rounding off the package. Enjoy the photos of this not often-seen American prewar classic.
