Plymouth Standard

The Standard is a car that was initially sold by Chrysler under its Plymouth marque from 1933 to 1935. It replaced the New Finer model and was succeeded by the Plymouth Business.

Model PC (1933)

In 1933, Plymouth offered its first six-cylinder car, the PC model. Together with the Plymouth Deluxe, it replaced the New Finer Plymouth of 1932. It was sold as a two-door coupe, four-door sedan, two-door coupe roadster, two-door business coupe, and two-door convertible. The PC was fitted with a 3110cc 3-litre inline-six side valve engine capable of generating 70 bhp (51 kW) of power at 3600 rpm. It also featured three-speed transmission and hydraulic braking. Production of the Model PC ended during April 1933, with 60,000 examples being constructed.

Model PCXX (1933)

The Model PCXX made its debut during April 1933, and stylistically appeared to be an adapted Plymouth Deluxe. It was offered as a two-door coupe, four-door sedan, two-door coupe roadster, and two-door business coupe. The PCXX was fitted with the same 3-litre engine as the previous PC model. Only 43,403 units were sold.

Model PG (1934)

The Plymouth Model PG was introduced halfway through its model year, in February 1934, and was sold as a two-door coupe, four-door sedan, and two-door business coupe. It was fitted with a 3299cc 3-litre inline-6 engine capable of generating 77 bhp (56.5 kW) of power at 3600 rpm. Production of the Model PG ceased in September 1934, and only 20,512 examples were made.

Model PJ (1935)

The Model PJ, offered in 1935, was the first model of the Plymouth Standard that was designed from scratch. It did not feature as many body styles as its predecessors, and was only offered as a two-door coupe and two-door business coupe. The PJ was fitted with a 3.3 litre inline-six engine capable of generating 82 bhp (60 kW). It also featured doors that hinged at the rear instead of the front, and rode on a wheelbase of 2870 mm. Due to the car's low demand, only 13,948 units were sold.
