The New Finer Plymouth (or: Plymouth Model PB ) was a mid- size car that Chrysler manufactured under the brand name Plymouth in the 1932 model year.


The styling had been refined again compared to the predecessor Plymouth model PA and the engine output had increased further by increasing the compression. Nevertheless, the models were no more expensive than last year. Therefore they were offered as "new" and "better" (English: new, finer).

The car still had a side-controlled four-cylinder in-line engine with 3214 cc, but its output had risen to 65 bhp (48 kW). It was the final year for the four-cylinder model; only in 1971 did Plymouth again offer vehicles with four-cylinder engines. This year the model years were also changed. In the past, they more or less corresponded to the calendar years, in future the model year began after the factory holidays of the previous year (in September / October) and ended before the factory holidays in July. As a result, this model presented in February was only manufactured for 8 months.


Numerous body variants were on offer: four-door Phaeton, two- and four-door sedan, four-door long sedan, two-door business coupé and roadster-coupé, two-door business roadster and sports roadster, two-door convertible and two-door sedan-convertible. Depending on the structure, the length was 4446 to 4674 mm. The vehicles weighed between 1153 and 1393 kg.

number of pieces

When the model series was replaced by the Standard Model PC and Deluxe Model PD models in September 1932 , 83,910 units were produced.
