Before World War II, station wagons were often titled and registered as commercial vehicles, and while a few suburban families might have owned one of these wonderful utility vehicles, most were placed into money-making applications. One of the more common duties was to transport guests and their luggage from an airport or railroad depot to a hotel or guest ranch, thus earning the title “station wagon”. Plymouth touted itself as having the engine with the most horsepower to weight ratio of the low-priced three, featuring advances in suspension, comfort and appearance. For 1941, Plymouth’s interiors featured Art-Deco-inspired styling starting with the dashboard to the smart and comfortable seats. It was one of the priciest models in the Plymouth lineup for 1941 with a factory-delivered price of $995.

Finished in Mandarin Maroon, a popular color for the day, the body is constructed of oak featuring professional craftsmanship and with a golden finish under protective coatings. Featuring three rows of seating that fit seven passengers plus the driver comfortably, each seat has been covered with light beige vinyl with a stitched pattern closely replicating the original patterns. The interior floors are made of solid oak, also presented in a golden tan finish, with the front floors covered in black rubber. The spare tire is mounted to the back of the front seat and concealed under a custom-fitted matching vinyl cover that snaps into place. Protecting the top of the car is a tan vinyl material with a pebble finish which appears to have been recently installed. The all-steel wheels are fitted with original Plymouth hubcaps and bright stainless steel trim rings that add a touch of elegance to this eye-catching beauty and ride on a vintage set of Lester 6.00” X 16” wide whitewall tires that do show a bit of age but have plenty of tread. Showing 43,325 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging, those may well be from new. Under the hood appears to be original with the trustworthy inline six well-sorted and the original Ball & Ball carburetor, built exclusively for the Chrysler Corporation, looks to have been recently serviced. There is an unmatched charm that comes when owning and driving a vintage “woody” wagon and this Plymouth is an excellent presentation of style, looks and happy motoring.
