Re: New Member - I've got a first series car...

Hi Mark: I think woodies are some of the coolest cars ever but if I had a choice of two others I would have to say they would be the P15 with suicide doors and a P15 convertible. Now I'm being greedy because I don't have enough garage space for any more cars, but I can dream. That interior is beauti...

Re: New Member - I've got a first series car...

Hi: welcome to the group. That's a real beauty you have there. I've always loved the P15 styling. There is a lot of cross over on these sites since many guys own more than one year and model. I'd love to see more the car and the interior. My own machine in the works right now is a 49 woodie wagon. I...

Re: New Member, a huge project ahead of me =)

Hi: A big welcome to your whole family group. You've come to a great place to learn about these cars. You can learn a lot by just searching back through the older posts on various topics. A lot of the questions that you have were probably asked by other newcomers in the last ten years. But to answer...

Re: taking the clutch pedal off the frame

The the nut and bolt at the bottom of the pedal is the one you need to remove. It's a wedge pin with a flat on one side so it has to be tapped out. It will be in there pretty snuggly.

Re: taking the clutch pedal off the frame

I assume you refer to removing the pedal from the shaft that goes through the frame. The pedael is secured to the shaft by a tapered pin and a nut on the end of the pin. Loosen the nut a couple of turns and then use a hammer to hit the nut and drive the pin out. By leaving the nut on as you rap on t...

Re: newly joined member

Your situation sounds very familiar, that time of life when you start reasessing your piorities and still find time for what is important. I've been clearing out a lot of old stuff I will never get around to, concentrating on the few things that still mean alot to me, and of course the house, always...

Re: newly joined member

Hi:
And welcome to the site. I've seen your post on the Oldplymouth site for some time. A lot of people here also have more than one old Mopar. I'll look forward to your posts. Things have been a little quiet around here lately.

Re: HELLO. NEW GUY HERE ON THE HUNT FOR HIS FIRST PLYMOUTH!

Hi: I just saw someone in Dublin,GA. has three Plymouths for sale and one is 48 P15 Convertible, a super nice looking car in my opinion. It has a new top including wooden bows and a new floor. He is asking $14,000. I would jump on this if it is in good shape because I don't think I've seen one in de...

Re: Me and.."my" 49

Hi: Great deal! It's a little bit of a mix and match which is not uncommon for any vehicle this old. The grill is 1950, the marker lights and fenders are 49 Deluxe while the stainless trim is Special DeLuxe. The steering wheel is Deluxe and the 49 dash appears to be in excellent shape (very rare!). ...

Just checking in

Hi All: There hasn't been much activity on this board lately so I thought I would check in and say Hi. Hope everyone had a good summer. I made some real progress on the woodie. A lot of the sheet metal has been painted, the engine and drivetrain are back together and it runs very nicely. There is st...

Re: Need to sell our Lucille

I'm sorry to hear about this. If it is any consolation there is a lot of it going around,especially amongst the folk of our older generation. Just when we thought we could slow down a bit. I really feel bad for the current generation. They'll just ahve to keep treading water. We at least saw some go...

Re: how to add oil to my supreme deluxe 49 plymouth

It's pretty simple stuff like most everything on these old cars. That's why I love working on them. Warm up the engine first. Turn it off and slide an oil pan under the car. Remove that oil pan drain bolt. Once it is completely drained replace the plug and snug it up. There is a torque setting for t...
