I own 2 46-48 desoto's very close to plymouth's in most respects but I can say some of my fondest memories of childhood had to do with my pops 48'plymouth. Can still remember the waterworks when my pop sold her.

And one for the guy who posted the code of conduct:



And the guy himself, Tom Richey:

The Plymouth was my Dad's 47, see his latest ride in my photos (41 Nash). Was the T the one that the guy had a couple of different bodies for, and swapped them out during the Winter?

[QUOTE=barqsnut;3966118]Did the car

The 1947 Plymouth you are discussing was featured first in Rod Action September 1974, with a small picture on the front of the nose. Then again in Street Rodder September 1975.

Here's my P15. Nearly six years to get it to this point, but enjoyed the journey. Had a P15 much like this as my first car back in 1966.

I've got a 49', and I've gotta say I've never really had any problem finding parts for them. Those old flat sixes were used for a long time after in all kinds of stuff (combiners and generators I believe) so lots of stores still carry the essentials.
I've bought everything from head gaskets to voltage regulators from Napa, often without having to have the parts shipped in or anything.
Now when it comes to vintage hop up equipment, hard to find isn't the word. The word is expensive. I wanted to get some of those finned parts, so I went looking for em....I found em and I left em!
I've also heard from more than one source that hopping them 218's up is a waste. Yeah, they'll make some power (not much) and it also decreases the engine's life exponentially. Not that hop-up parts are good for any engine really, but the design of those old flat sixes just can't withstand too much "improvement". Dress it up and cruise it is what I decided to go with.
Hopefully I'll get around to it eventually...
