  1. door sill 49 Plymouth

    I have done my research and could so far only identify door sills for my 49 in a price region others would buy an entire engine for :-) Is this 450/ 500 plus shipping price point offering rally the only option on the market for a reproduction item? I certainly hope not. :-(

    Anybody knows what later model door still plates would work from a dimensional point of view? Here is just one example of many available. It could look nice and would certainly be way less expensive: https://moparplus.com/interior/door-sill-plates/
  4. Kick panel resource

    I am in the need for new kick panels. This ebay offering I don't like. I am missing additional sewn edges. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kick-Panel-Board-1949-1950-Plymouth-Deluxe-Special-Deluxe-Painted-Cardboard/221823498297?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D49453%26meid%3Db912e7a1c9664127930fe6680fafa9a1%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dlo%26sd%3D221823498297&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A97be116d-f7d5-11e7-b5e7-74dbd18080da%7Cparentrq%3Aec0505d11600abda4a8393f2ffe50232%7Ciid%3A1 Any recommendation for additional suppliers?

    Coming back to the original question : do door sills have a sealing function as well? Should I go for a chrome plated route such a sealing function would not be provided anymore.

    Lucky you - mine are prone to cracking by purely looking at them :-)
  7. door sill 49 Plymouth

    I actually mean the rubber ones - but the one on my car are cracking everywhere. So I would love to replace them with the original type, but not for 500 USD plus shipping. So maybe the alternative could be chromish metal covers. Yes so you are right.
  8. Heater duct 1949/ 1950 Plymouth

    Not the most responsive guy! I am still waiting for him to respond to my email :-)
  9. I am looking for the above item. I know on ebay there are two types of offerings available. A very cheap one - that is exactly how this item looks like. And another one for basically 190$ - amazingly expensive. Maybe you happen to have anything in-between or a pre-owned one in very good condition? thanks

    Do door sills have a sealing function? If not I could obviously also use a chrome/ aluminum alternative.

    Thanks. Really amazing :-)

    Sorry - made a mistake. This should be listed under wanted. How can I do that???
  14. Please bear with me - I just started the work on my new 1949 Plymouth - and hence the occasional questions do pop up. I sincerely hope that I shall not overstretch all your patience with that. Today to matters came up : a. A loose cable from the heater fan I believe. I have checked everything near by but not detect anything where this might be missing or should be attached? b. Certainly less important - a cardboard thingy happens to lie around inside the car. Any idea if this has a role to play or was simply something the previous owner added for his own liking? Final hint - any idea how I can take out the tank grommet with destroying both the paint job and the grommet itself. It is stuck as hell - and yes, not necessarily the newest type also.
  15. 1949 550 heater operating instructions

    Yes. I honestly have been reading all the engine and transmission parts. But you are right. Next weekends reading is herewith covered. Thom
  16. I know it is is not rocket science - but has anyone got the operating instructions for this item available? thanks

  18. 1949 detective needed to identify two items

    Now that is obvious - I mean the ground issue. But isn't the motor grounded anyway by the way it is being installed? Anyway. Diverter Ok - let's seet what I can do with it :-)
  19. NOS door mirror ?

  20. NOS door mirror ?

    What did period correct door mirrors look like. My predecessor choose an alternative that just doesn't work for me. Ugly could be the word for it :-)
  21. Hi - can not identify this part even looking at my Parts book. It is basically the connector of the vent window to the window itself. Mine is actually broken - so I need a new one.
