Okay, so this 1939 Plymouth has me perplexed. It’s wearing a pair of round, sealed beam headlights, set into round openings, with a separate set of turn signals mounted below. Yet, all of Plymouth’s sales & advertising material shows the new ‘39s with rectangular-shaped headlights, and no turn signals in sight (see brochure cover at bottom of page, from OldCarBrochures.com). Google searches turn up some ’39 Plymouths with round headlights — a few we found were in Canada, while some others were wearing European plates — so maybe the rectangular version wasn’t legal outside of the U.S. No place on the internet (that I could find) seems to make any mention of this. And the mystery continues. Today’s RealRide was seen last week in the Town of Porter.
(And all of this time I thought you could find out anything you wanted to know immediately here on the ol’ WWW. Hmph…)
