2much2do Glad to see anyone get a new hotrod project.Those old mopars are easy to work on but performance parts can be tough to come by. Check out, go to the H.A.M.B.,register and you'll find folks with experiance dealing with your Plymouth. It is a traditional hot rodding board, no muscle cars or ricers.

pasadenahotrod The P15 (46-48) Plymouth is a wonderful car. Virtually every part for them is available. Just remember, they only knock once!
If I ever find another nice one, I'll never own another car in my life.
Best of luck.
For parts try George Taylor in Pasadena Texas.

woodz428 I was able to get engine parts and assorted other parts at my local parts store for my 1940 Desoto engine, you might be able to do the same. Chrysler used their flathead sixes until about 1959.
