    Jaguar front clip

    Nice car, it’s not very often that we get to see the De Soto version of the P-15, good luck in your endeavors.

    Wider Stock-Looking Wheels 46 Special Deluxe

    1980s dodge diplomat police package wheels are a fit but that is about as wide as you would want to go in those narrow rear wheel wells .

    1939 all electric Dodge truck

    You shoudn't have assumed that this is my truck Don, it is simply a video I found on you tube.............As to all your rapid fire question that are supposed to awe and amaze me with your knowledge maybe you should contact the owner to get your answers. I will leave it up to you to guess the 2 words that I am making with my mouth at this moment.

    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 !

    my first project car at 16

    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!

    Scarebird Conversion (ex. 7 pass.) ?

    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.

    my first project car at 16

    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!
