With just under 6,000 convertibles built and far less in existence today, the ’39 convertible has become quite the collector’s item.

1939 marked the last year of the rumble seat for these Plymouths.

The ’39 Plymouth had one of its most famous moments during the 1939 New York World’s Fair, where Chrysler’s 3D film In Tune with Tomorrow was a huge hit with visitors.

Viewers paid 25 cents to view the film through these Plymouth-shaped 3D glasses.  The film featured the full assembly of a ’39 Plymouth, and was seen by over one and a half million people over the course of the fair.
