Production of Plymouth's PT series half-ton trucks hovered in the 10,000-and-under range most years, abruptly ending prior to America's entrance into World War II. Trucks tend to be treated as tools of the trade rather than collectibles--they're used up and tossed aside. Thus, the short run of the pre-war Plymouth PT was evidently no match for the punishment its owners dished out.In 1939, the PT81 rolled out as an all-new truck alongside its nearly identical Dodge- and Fargo-branded brethren. The cab and bed were slightly larger and the spare tire was mounted under the truck, usually below the bed hanging from the rear frame rails. The grille was sharpened to a point, with horizontal louvers that spread out onto the lower front fenders. Sales picked up to just over 6,000 units in 1939 and increased to 6,879 for the nearly identical 1940 PT105. The final edition of the Plymouth pickup was the 1941 PT125, which was restyled with the addition of some chrome trim on the grille and fender-mounted headlamps. Some 6,073 pickups were manufactured that year.Today, Plymouth PT series trucks are sought after by aficionados, and are an uncommon sight at shows. The trim pieces unique to Plymouth trucks can be difficult to locate, but the major components are common to Dodge trucks and Plymouth cars. "They are easy to work on,"
