You Can Own The Last Plymouth Ever Built

For Sale / Comments

We're just not sure what you should do with it.

At first glance, there is nothing remarkable about this unassuming 2001 Plymouth Neon LX listed for sale on Bring A Trailer. However, this car is historically significant. Why? Because this is the last car Plymouth ever built, marking the end of the company's 73-year run. The Neon was custom-ordered by the seller, who drove it off the assembly line. Since it rolled off the production line 20 years ago, it's only clocked only 68 miles, so it's practically brand new.

Finished in silver with a black leather interior, the Neon is equipped with a host of optional extras including 15-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 185/60 Goodyear tires.

It also comes with integrated fog lights, body-color side moldings, and power steering. Inside, the front bucket seats upholstered in Dark Slate Gray leather, which is also applied to the rear bench and door panel inserts. Other interior amenities include woodgrain trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cassette stereo, a CD changer, a power-operated sunroof, and side-impact airbags.

Powering the Neon is a 2.0-liter inline-four rated at 132 horsepower and 130 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the front wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. The oil was last changed in 2017 and the battery has been replaced.

The Neon was also sold under the Dodge and Chrysler brands and competed with the Honda Civic. Photos show corrosion has formed on the muffler, but the car is in otherwise great condition considering its age. As part of the sale, the seller is also including dealer documents and a commemorative banner that was displayed at the assembly plant to commemorate Plymouth's last car. When it was new, this particular Neon had a sticker price of $18,210.

At the time of writing, the car has a high bid of $15,100. Not bad for a piece of automotive history, but the auction ends on May 10, so there's still time for the price to hike up.
