  1. As was said earlier.....the 46-48 Plymouths had a vacuum operated top. The metal tubes ran from a push/pull switch on passenger side of the dash. along the floorboard to the area under the rear seat/and top well.......with tubes which crossed over to driver's side vacuum cannister. As you can see, this is no help to the Dodge question. Just explaining how the Plymouth was different.....as I have one. You might check with these folks to see if they have anything for your car.

  2. Sumac Red and Charlotte Ivory (a light yellowish tan color) were only available on convertibles and woody wagons in 1946-48 Plymouths.
  3. Hi. Nice looking car. I see it has the original white metal wheel trim rings. ....although most are now rusty. Those would have come on the car when new since rubber to make whitewall tires was still in short supply following the war. The rings gave the appearance of having the white sidewalls.
  4. In 1956, did they even make a 4 door Plymouth wagon? I know they did in 1957.
  5. Those caps are definitely cool Robin.
  6. I would say the Plymouth wagon has likely been lurking, Tim. Will drive past the place in a few days just to see........
  7. Your car is very impressive looking. I have chauffered two or three newly married couples in the convertible. They had fun sitting up on the boot as we rode around town. One couple even wanted to stop at a local drive in restaurant....which we did. Got lots of looks 😁
  8. I wonder if that number relates to a paint chip color card put out by Chrysler Corp.. If you know the original color of your car, you can see if those two match. Just a guess.
  9. We were traveling to an area town a few days ago.....took a small state highway to the south of where we live. In one front yard was a Halloween display which featured 3 older vehicles......one truck and two other cars......one of which appeared to be a 1950 Plymouth Suburban. Black in color.....don't know if it runs or general condition. Always a surprise out there.
  10. Greg.....I have forgotten.....is it 24 or 26 zerks?? Had a young fellow in a local quick change oil shop who found them all a few years ago....I was impressed.
  11. I also have an aluminum water tube purchased at a swap meet. But per an earlier post on the subject, others said they would not suggest using it. So it will have to sit on the shelf and collect dust. Would they have possibly used aluminum in the late 1950s at the end of the use of the flathead engines in Mopar vehicles? Or was this item just some manufacturer's bright idea (that wasn't so good)?
  12. Am using original set of Chrysler wire wheels removed from a 1955 Chrysler New Yorker back in the 1970s. I am running BF Goodrich branded radials purchased from Coker Tire. ********Oops......in looking thru earlier posts I saw that I had posted similar pictures ....oh well.....I still use the wheels and still like them. I also have a set of 15 inch original style wheels with wide whites on them.......plus the original 16 inch rims that came on the car, with a set of black sidewall radials sitting around to use on them. They need to be cleaned up and painted first. Then there is the set of 15 inch painted Chrysler wire wheels which also need to be cleaned up and repainted, plus need new center caps. Always something in the garage on which to spend time and money. Painted factory wire wheels.....got them on a 54 Plymouth Savoy fourdoor purchased in a neighboring town. Sold the car with a different set of rims on it. Am thinking yellow to match the car.
  13. I think the original door handle pins are slightly bigger on one end, but haven't looked at one for awhile. Have seen nails used - the head kept them from falling through.
