A 1928 Plymouth that might possibly be the second- or third-oldest in existence is set to cross the auction block in Toronto mid-October.
The Model Q to be offered up at the Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction is a Windsor, Ontario-built car believed to be the 637th built. In one of the world’s largest club registries of classic Plymouth owners, it’s the second-oldest car listed, though it’s bested at least by the car in Chrysler’s corporate collection and one other even older known survivor.
Though the restoration is more than 20 years old, the green-on-green four-door sedan still presents very well, especially considering we’re talking about a vehicle literally as old as sliced bread (the Missouri baker who invented the thing did so on the same day the first Model Q was unveiled, in July 1928).
Collector Car Productions, the auction house, did not offer a pre-auction price estimate, though cars like this tend to go for around $10,000. Of course, you have to factor in this particular car’s being one of the oldest Plymouths.
Another Model Q – the above-mentioned survivor, a Windsor-built car believed to be the oldest Plymouth in existence – sold at an Alberta auction in 2010 for $25,000 CDN, though it was in far worse condition and in desperate need of a restoration.
CCP will also be offering up some newer Plymouths at the auction, including a 1970 Hemi Superbird in Lemon Twist yellow; and a ’71 shaker hood ’Cuda in Curious Yellow lime.
The CCP Toronto Fall Classic Car Auction will take place the weekend of October 13, 2017 in Toronto.
