1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe Club Coupe

Plymouth offered two Series in 1950: The Deluxe and Special Deluxe. The latter came with better appointments such as: stainless steel windshield and rear window surrounds, chrome rear fender gravel shields, 

Inside it had twin sun visors (only the driver got one in a Deluxe), richer interior fabrics, and the electric clock was standard.

This 1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe Club Coupe is a lovely example of one of their high-end cars for that year.
