Scribner selling world’s oldest Plymouth?

by David Zatz on

Auction house Scribner is selling the world’s oldest known surviving Plymouth (based largely on research by the Plymouth Owners Club). The car is still running. It is a 1928 Plymouth Model Q with serial number GP028L.

Jim Benjaminson of the Plymouth Owners Club attempted to find the world’s oldest Plymouth in the past, and through POC records, found out that the car owned by Chrysler and labelled as “the First Plymouth” was actually #30 on their list, and was the 23,426th Plymouth built. Its serial number is RW292L.

There may actually be an older Plymouth than the one being sold by Scribner, but, if it survives, it has eluded the Plymouth Owners Club – and presumably Chrysler itself.
