Lot #1275.1 - This 1941 Plymouth 4-door sedan extends far beyond the average Resto-Mod build. While the bulk of the prewar Plymouth utilitarian vehicles shape still remains, its transformation into a bona fide street rod is apparent both at first glance and from behind the wheel. With over 8,000 hours invested and a $375,000-build cost, it's safe to say that no expense was spared. The all-steel body is sprayed in PPG Moss Green paint with Spanish Olive trim, and the rear fenders have been widened 4" to enhance the car's street rod persona. Stylish Chevy HHR taillights adorn the rear. The Chrysler flathead six has been removed in favor of a power plant with a tad more grunt — the infamous 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that has been tweaked to nearly 420hp. Smooth highway cruising is made possible by pairing the HEMI to a 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The Plymouth's air ride suspension is height adjustable for ride quality and that sinister slammed look. An Art Morrison C5 Corvette chassis and C4 Corvette independent rear suspension ensure the HEMI's 400+ horsepower is efficiently transferred to the ground. Corvette power disc brakes in the front and rear provide more than adequate stopping power. Oversized 14-inch drilled rotors in the front and 12-inch drilled rotors in the rear can be seen peeking behind staggered Boyd wheels wrapped in Toyo rubber. It has an extreme amount of detail inside with Olive Drab leather seats and a suede headliner, 12-speaker sound system powered by a Kenwood CD/DVD/Navigation touchscreen head unit that doubles as a backup camera. The front buckets are both 6-way power and the rear seats are matching buckets. The details didn't end in the trunk. It has a flat screen TV set into the custom fiberglass enclosure and leather-lined trunk along with a body-colored custom cooler.
