    I need a pair of 1954 Plymouth park Lights. The entire unit.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

  3. Park light full unit View Advert I need a pair of 1954 Plymouth park Lights. The entire unit. Advertiser pflaming Date 07/09/2020 Price Category Individual Member Classified Wanted Ad  
  4. I want to tow my Sportster behind my Suburban There are three significant vintage weekends upcoming. I want to drop in. Has any one connected a surge brake into the vehicle to be towed?
  5. Here is one for the talented and ambitious.
  6. Today I cleaned my carburetor and put in new parts kit. Cost of the kit $$32. It’s really amazing the engine ran the insides were so dirty. Tomorrow will instal and see if the engine will restart.
  7. Wanted, complete pair of park lights. 1954 Plymouth. Dr’s appointment today, back-in the shop tomorrow. A new kit in the carburetor and I’m mechanically on the road. Work now is cosmetic so I can get it legal via CHP/DMV. Since my truck has a bad rod, we need a 2nd car.
  8. I find it interesting how closely how closely The grills and auto body designs are so similar going back decades. My 53 Plymouth has the “teeth” so does the ‘53 chevrolet, etc. I can recall few break out of the box designs. I think the 49 Ford was one, the 56 Pontiac “Wide track”, American Motors unibody, and curved side windows, More recently the Mack Truck Dodge grills to name a few. What others occurred?
  9. Required parts to finish the Sportster back ordered until July 9, so with better knees, back on the Suburban and now will remain so until it is licensed to drive every day. It’s “ drivable “ as is, what remains is safety and cosmetically related. Sportster is close also. Will tow the Sportster behind the suburban when I go to CHP and DMV. Enjoy July 4!
  10. Check the bolts that hold the top on the carburetor bowl. If they do not have lock washers, or the washers are flat, they will work loose. I check mine regularly. . When even slightly loose the engine will run but only that!
  11. Old, is a relative phase in the lifespan. some are old at 49, some at 65, some never get old, just stif, sore, and slower. At 82, that’s where I am. By the way, ordered a kit for my carter carb, will clean and reassemble it tomorrow!
  12. Fro the looks in the photo, the light blue really looks great.
  13. Didn’t Johnney Cash write a song about that truck which sold a million copies?
