    Found out today what I am NOT doing with my 50 Dodge

    That garage owner has barrett jackson syndrome..........your car will never be a high dollar car worth a kings ransom. When I see guys trying to flip these old chryslers for more than 20,000 I cringe. there are many well finished ones of the same era out there for 12,000 and less.....some even have new tires and shiny paint....lol. If my dodge was a pristine low milage original it wouldn't fetch more than 10 or 12 tops because these cars haven't caught on with the in crowd yet and real mopar guys are too cheap and smart to pay 45 for a 10 thousand dollar car. If your pain is too severe sell this one and buy a finished one....there is no shame in admitting your wrenching days are limited. You will find a nice car and save 150,000 in the process. Good luck !

    Thats what happens when chevy and ford owners buy and sell mopars........they think every car is barrett jackson and mopar guys are tighter than a pine knot.....lol.

    Nice collection of stuff........too much clutter for my taste, he could have done it with half that much.

    Alright......now I gotta fuss at you a little....how are you going to learn to build a car if your first instinct is to REPLACE a Rebuildable component????? Buy a rebuild kit for your carb and sit down and have at it, take many pictures during the tear down stage and reassemble it slowly and correctly....stopping when you are not sure and asking questions on the forum we will help you and we will not fail you. A one barrel carb is one of the simplest items to rebuild on your P-15, it will build your confidence and give you the satisfaction of saying I rebuilt it myself!

    Dennis I don't have your answer but on my 47 dodge the rims are a 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern. on the limo/ lwb models the pattern is 5 x 5.......so I would say no go.

    At some point and time you are going to stall out or get frustrated with the part of the car you are working on......say the fuel system. Resist the urge to move on and deconstruct another part of the car, if you go down that path you will have a pile of parts that more than likely will never go back together again. Pick a task and finish it, then move on to the next one. Lots of project cars out there that will never be finished or worse get scrapped. Not every car needs to be a frame off restoration. Good luck with your plymouth!
