This 1939 plymouth with exlpiglass top was made for the 1939 World's Fair. It was painted with 16 coats of mother of pearl paint. The interior was all white leather dyed to match the exterior. The floor mats and pedals were all white rubber. The piping on the trim was done in white leather which turned gold with time. The interior upolstery was done by Dewey Fairfield who worked for Briggs. Dewey later purchased the car from Chrysler for $300.00. Dewey was my grandfather. He replaced the exlpiglass top with a permanent black vinyl top and upsolstered the headliner with a mouse grey leather and black piping. Dewey drove the car for a number of years. My parents were dating and in high school at that time. They drove the car to their 1941 high school prom.
