  12. Anyone know what color this is, or whose car it is?

    It looks like a 1954 Plymouth paint color, San Pedro Blue. It should"nt be hard to match.I painted my 1954 Plymouth San Gabriel Green, and had no trouble matching it.
  13. 54 powerflite leaks

    My 1954 Plymouth power flite leaks if it is parked for a few days. It leaks from the shift input shaft, as the fluid drains back into the trans. There is no valve to stop the drain back, the fluid forces its way past the seal. My brother also has a 54 plymouth powerfite,his does the same thing.This was a common problem. Not sure if later models were modified to fix this problem.I think the Chev power glide had the same problem.

  15. Help with a engine gasket set

    Here are two #FS3029X or FS4922, both Victor from NAPA.I used the first # on a Canadian 228 1954 Plymouth engine and the second on a 1950 218 Canadian dodge engine that I put in my 1948 1/2 ton Fargo.Either gasket set will work.Dealing with NAPA can be a problem,as older people retire,younger people don"t know about older cars and in a lot of cases can"t be bothered.If you need any help just e-mail me at arblake@shaw.ca. I live in Courtenay B.C on Vancouver Island.
