  1. I think 55 caps went on with clips as the older models did. Not sure if the 56 model used clips or those center "nubs".
  2. Looks good from here.....is it about an inch thick? There is also a Repair Manual with different information about fixing and adjusting things. You might want to get that one as well. The one on bottom right is the best match for a P15 (the red and white one goes just slightly newer).
  3. Nice. Always good to see P15s getting some press........ We have managed to get out among 'em over the last 40 years or so. We often have the only old Mopar there.
  4. Maybe someone in the jewelry business knows if they can be welded. These rings get a bit of pressure at that broken point when you use the top area of the ring to honk the horn. Another thing that will work is a ring from a 46-48 Canadian Dodge (or Plodge) that looks like a P15 even though it's a Dodge. I think it's model #D25. I once bought an excellent steering wheel listed as from a Dodge......but knowing it was same as Plymouth.
  5. Well......I've never tried to take a trunk handle apart. I have one that was worked on by a "locksmith" who might have been good with some sorts of locks.... but not so much with my P15 trunk lock. It's been quite a while since he made a key that barely works and messed up some other part in there. I would have to find that item in my collection of spares to see what was messed up. I simply found another decent handle and went on. Sorry I don't have a better answer. Bob
  6. I think the vendor used to be Frank Mitchell Mopar who seemed to have a big warehouse full of good old stuff. I don't know if Frank is still around or who is running the place now. I bought some sill plates for the 47 Plymouth from the fellow who designed them and had them produced for around $250. So that price is in the neighborhood.
  7. I use 215-75R-15 radials on my 47 Plymouth.....which seem like the best size to me. 225 should probably work ok.
  8. I haven't read all the posts, so someone may have already made this comment. Regarding the Charlotte Ivory color......I believe that color and Sumac Red (a dark red) were only used on convertibles and woody wagons in the P15 models. I did see the Ivory you sprayed looks good...and nothing says you can't use that color for a sedan if you want to. Just thought I would add a little info everyone might not know. You're making good progress......
  9. You can see my 1947 Plym rear bumper is the short one....... But the front is longer....possibly close to the rear one you're looking for.....
  10. I have two non original horns hidden under the hood plus a 6v siren I need to put back on. The original horns do need a new wire that runs down thru the steering column then they will work also. Always something you can tinker with on these old cars.......that's part of the fun.
  11. A 47 Dodge owned by another Canadian.........bumper same as a P15 Plymouth.....????. https://www.flickr.com/photos/daveseven/8495487986/in/photostream/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/daveseven/8495487344/in/photostream/
  12. The rear bumper on that black coupe looks odd to me......it seems to stand out from the body further than others and is notably longer (larger) than other P15s.... wrapping around the fender further. Maybe the company used an odd bumper for a period of time back then. As far as the brackets.....you would need to change brackets to install another shorter version of the bumper.
  13. Somewhere...in the reference section of this website, is a factory list of colors for numerous items on the car. Which items were painted and which were a natural metal finish. My engine stuff is pretty much either silver or black. I had to replace my original radiator as it could no longer be repaired.....so I went with an aluminum model. But I did not care for the shiny top and frame......so I masked off the core and painted the rest black. Can not use those air fins on top without having mounting brackets made and attached to the new rad. Will the average spectator at a car show know the difference???? I suspect not. (I do need to put the horns back on.)
