  1. nice P15 Deluxe locally

    2014 Silverado z71 LTZ 1500 - Trailer is 18 feet long. I’ve towed a 67 Cadillac back from Syracuse to my place in central Mass with no problems, however I’ve decided when I trade this one in next fall it will be for a 3/4 ton version. I love the half ton ride, but with a load the springs are too soft. I’ve done helper spring in the past and air bags on the rear as well (this is the 10th GM truck I’ve had) but I can’t justify making these upgrades five years into ownership.
  2. nice P15 Deluxe locally

    Gray looking car John, looks like the one I picked up in Boston this past February. Any clue what they want for it?
  3. Electrical issues

    Two words of advice mentioned at length above... BATTERY CABLES....
  4. 49 plymouth

    One of my cars is a first series ‘49, p15 sedan. Was sold new at a dealership in coast Rhode Island. Came of the line Feb of 49, and delivered to the dealer in April of 1949. It’s always been titled as a 48. Not sure controls were as strict back then as they are now, locals probably had made lots of paperwork decisions that normally wouldn’t fly today.
  5. P-15 Totaled

    Photos? How’d it happen? Everyone ok?
  6. P15-D24 stickers

    Looks good Dave!
  7. It’s a d24 convertible
  8. Body mount tabs

    Sadly Wayne Brandon (the plymouth Doctor) 517.625.7596 is not producing these for the p15.
  9. NOS fenton head

    What you should do is send it to me to sort out. Is it for sale?
  10. Fitting where does it go

    Could it be the threaded fitting above cylinder #6 that is removed to check for TDC?
  11. Rims

    Oval stems are available, Amazon has them.
  12. Removing inner door handles, B1B

    These photos came from my convertible, but should be the same situation for the truck. There was a spring behind the handle, really had to shove the tool in to get it to engage the pins. Can’t imagine trying to reinstall the handles without the tool.
  13. Appreciate you posting this Bob. I had reached out to him via email to ask about recreating some p15 convertible only parts, and sadly got no response. I do hope the renovations to the house go smoothly and he gets back into the biz soon!
  14. Stone guards

    these are universal, one pair fits all p15 rear fenders.
  15. everdry kit

    picked up a set when I got my sedan 8 years back, installed them and noticed after I washed the car that the water was now trapped outside of the cup in the spark plug well. Removed them not too long after my freshly painted head started to look ugly from water stains. I also tried with and without the washers under the cups, theory was that since there is a small machine groove in the spark plug hole that the everdry cup may not deform that far to make a good seal. I found no noticeable difference in performance, and since the car really only gets wet in when washing, I decided to run naked.
  16. Oil in Exhaust Manifold

    Some of the valves were on high cam when you poured the MMO into the head, as it should be, some are open an some are closed.
  17. Clock repair recomendations.

    Set it to 5 o’clock and leave it alone. Unless you’re looking for concourse quality, its really not worth repairing. If your car is not a daily driver, the clock will just drain your battery if left energized. The alternate to repair is to replace the guts with a modern battery driven motor. There are threads in the archives here that describe that in full.
  18. Kick panel resource

    Just bought kick panels and correct door cards for me 47 Convertible from a seller on eBay known as muscle maniac car parts. They’ll be waiting on my doorstep when I get home from Australia on Thursday. Will let you know quality and fit after I get back.
  19. this was the exact "look" i was after when I bought my p15 sedan. I wanted it to appear stock, but have a few extra things that a highschooler would have done to the car that his dad gave him. So I went with the Offenhauser dual intake, and headers. Installed finned covers on the galleys, but they really cant be seen from most angles. Last thing I did was the OD which I rebuilt end to end and swapped myself. It's a sedan so alot of people walk right by it, but anyone that's an in-liner fan usually asks whats under the hood, which leads to some decent conversation. Some day I will tear down the engine and rebuild it, when that happens I will shave the head and swap out the cam for something with some pop, but for now the mods i did are perfect for a "highschool" driver, that graduated 33 years ago.
  20. Not silly at all. It’s the longest threaded post on the back of the ignition switch. But be careful of how many accessories you tie to the post, you might want to consider and accessory fuse block installed on the firewall.
  21. Just a quickie: Transmission gasket set?

    If you have gasket material available I can send you a PDF that you can trace and cut your own. - Mark D

  23. Just posted on a Facebook page
