  1. I bought a new reproduction of the red tag for my P15 Plymouth several years ago....the repros are out there somewhere.
  2. I think I recall Plywood's owner became unhappy about something and left the forum....before he decided to sell. Been a while. There is a fellow from Kansas who appears at an area show here in s w Missouri who has built a woody P15 wagon from a four door sedan....is a street rod with a V8. He says he had built some rods from Fords, but discovered the Plymouth has a stronger frame.
  3. Those wheels all look very nice. A 46-48 Plymouth P15 wheel was a dark brown. I painted mine a maroon color to match my dash and window frames.
  4. Are the holes in your rims round or oval? You should be able to find either shape stem at a truck tire place.
  5. I would think that car had all rubber mats....front, rear and trunk. But those mats seem pretty impossible to find. You can buy some roll rubber mat at Lowes I think that might work. Otherwise you may have to use carpet (probably black since a mat would have been black). You could have an upholstery shop make the carpets for a good fit. I bought roll carpet for my '47 convert at an upholstery supply place and took it to my upholstery guy....paid him to do it up with edging, etc. Came out good. Did floors and trunk. In the final analysis.....you and a limited few Mopar experts will know if your floors are done just as original. The general public at a show will probably never even see your floors. If they do they will not know about originality. Just my two cents worth.
  6. I think original was light grey with some color pin stripe.
  7. I even use radial designated tubes in the new radial tires on my P15.....because I don't trust the wire wheels to not leak. However if your rims are in good condition tubeless should be ok.
  8. That picture of 3 different dipsticks seems correct. The short one indeed has no tube.
  9. The bottom ones strike me as they might have something to do with a heater. Maybe the top ones also for a heater. Strictly guessing.

    air cleaner

    I believe that some fellows, including Mr Don Coatney, stacked up two of those 4 inch air filters on each carb to allow for enough air intake.
  11. Yes,,,,,I have one of the nice black rubberized (kinda expensive) Logo fender covers for occasional use, plus a couple like the "Craftsman" item. Was not aware of the Harbor Fright (er, Freight) pad. Think I'll look into that......kind of a two-for-the-price-of-one deal when halved. Another H F item I have found handy is their four wheel furniture dollies.....for rolling various sorts of containers or items around in the garage. Like most everything in the place, the dollies are run on sale from time to time. Thanks for the info gents.
  12. In looking at a Plymouth engine sitting on a stand a few years ago, I noticed what I think is a casting date for the block. On the driver's side below the distributor as I recall. So, along with the serial number that identifies the car when originally built, the casting number can tell when the block was produced. I presume this number was on all blocks produced back then. The one in the picture was removed from an early '49 P15 coupe.....so the 1953 date indicates it was a replacement engine from a later model. Or....at least that's my best guess. Just tossing this info out for your reading enjoyment. Number is 6-2-53
  13. There's a piece of that black tape over the center top of the dash trim....probably a Dodge emblem there.
