1935 Plymouth PJ Businessman Coupe


  • Only two recorded owners from new
  • Highly evocative two-tone colour scheme
  • Complete with rumble seat
  • In current ownership since 1985

The Appeal

1935 had Plymouth at the top of their game. The sales literature was catchy in the way only the Americans could provide - “Fun - Action - Thrills - Find them in a Plymouth!” - and managed to shift a remarkable 350,000 cars. They were in the top three bestselling American car brands in 1935 - a winning formula of capable I6 powerplants, attractive styling and low prices.
This remarkable example arrived in the UK in 1985, and was restored with a new colour scheme in 1993. Presented in remarkable fettle, the car commands plenty of attention as a truly top-notch pre-war American classic.
